Room facilitiesAfter a long flight and with only a 4 hr stay it would have been nice to have drink making facilities in the room as we got in after 11pm and we're leaving at 4am so a cup of tea would have been nice. This is the only hotel I have stayed that didn't have this facility, so we expected to be there ...

Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Western Cape

The Western Cape is an affordable destination for travellers with modest budgets, especially when you stay outside of Cape Town’s city centre. Two-star hotel options in Western Cape include lodges at the foot of mountain ranges, cheap hotels on the scenic west coast and practical, trendy hostels dotted around towns such as Mossel Bay and Knysna. You don’t have to spend big in the Western Cape to find your own quaint little cottage in the peaceful wilderness of the region.

Discover the Unseen Western Cape

If your budget means that you end up staying outside of Cape Town, you’ll have the opportunity to explore beautiful, lesser-known corners of the Western Cape. Find a two-star hotel in Langebaan to enjoy the crystalline waters and golden beaches of the town’s lagoon, or stay in Clanwilliam, a small village positioned between the formidable peaks of Cederberg Mountains and the quiet valley of the Olifants River.

Outdoor Adventure from Two-Star Western Cape Hotels

Your voyage of discovery could lead you to the Karoo, an inland wilderness famed for its dramatic beauty. Stay near the town of Montagu, surrounded by the rocky faces of the Western Cape’s mountains, then head into the countryside for rock climbing and mountain biking. The town itself also has charming weekend markets and engaging museums covering regional history.

Affordable hotels in Knysna and the Garden Route

You can also find two-star hotels on the famous Garden Route, a trail of forests and cliffs that leads along South Africa’s southern coast. Bunk down in one of Knysna’s cheap hostels for quick access to the beautiful countryside nearby. A charming town bordering a lagoon, Knysna offers a host of attractions for people staying in the area. After a day of hiking through the region you can head back to town and enjoy local brewery tours, good restaurants and lively nightlife.

The easily accessible natural beauty that characterises the Western Cape makes the region a great choice for travellers on a budget. Seek out some cheap two-star accommodation, then lace up your walking boots for truly rewarding low-cost holiday.
