For superbly comfortable and gracious lodgings, try this inn set in English-style gardens in the leafy suburb of Walmer. Beautiful antiques, such as four-poster beds, furnish the spacious rooms—some of which are downright enormous, with sofas and huge wardrobes. The Victorian baths are also huge, with separate showers and marble-top vanities. All rooms except one have balconies. The hotel restaurant offers some of the best dining in town, and nonguests will be accommodated if there's space; booking in advance is essential. Food is French-style cuisine with a South African twist, and the four-course set dinner menu is R230. Light meals are available during the day.
