Fodor's Review

Situated on 11 acres of gardens in leafy Constantia, this glamorous and avant-garde boutique hotel was originally an 18th-century Cape Dutch manor house and working farm. Luxurious rooms are in two buildings, all decorated in a bold style that marries the voluptuous excess of velvet and gilt with elegant historical decorum to fantastic effect. Rooms are spacious and bright, and overlook the gardens and a pleasant walking trail. The hotel is conveniently located for those exploring Constantia's renowned wine estates. The stunning on-site restaurant 5 Rooms is well worth a visit, and the casual La Belle Bistro & Bakery serves excellent lighter fare all day long. In summer, the outdoor Rose Bar is a great place to enjoy cocktails and sushi.
