Exclusive mountainside bolthole, flawless service

21 Nettleton is one of the most amazing places we have stayed. The property is beautiful; set high up on the hillside of Lion's Head in Clifton with uninterrupted views of the ocean. The location is a great base for Cape Town sightseeing, if you can bring yourself to leave! We stayed in the King Room which was ornately decorated with gorgeous antiques and objets d'art collected by the owner. The room was very comfortable and we enjoyed having breakfast on the private balcony looking out over the ocean. Come late afternoon, we found ourselves ensconced in the living room so, although there are many good dining options nearby, we opted to have a night in with dinner cooked by the house chef - both breakfast and dinner were delicious. The service was impeccable. The staff valued our privacy and left us to our own devices but they were always available if we needed something (and reachable by sending a quick message through the iPad provided). The result was that we felt perfectly at home at 21 Nettleton. Adding to this was the fact there was only one other (seldom-seen) couple in residence. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. This hotel is excellent value and far exceeded our expectations (which were set high having read all the amazing reviews). We will most definitely stay again.

An extraordinary place and experience

I don't ever leave reviews unless my experience was extreme in either way. In the case of 21 Nettleton, it's one of my most memorable stays ever, and I travel around the world extensively. In every place I go, I always find something to love, but I don't get blown away that easily these days. 21 Nettleton did. It's not a hotel. It's an exclusive, private, and breathtakingly beautiful personal property that comes with your personal chefs and staffs who serve you with their whole heart and talk to you like your great long time friends. Because it only has 6 rooms so my 3 nights there felt like I had the entire property for my own. Thinking back those quiet breakfasts sitting in the garden overlooking the mountains and ocean, while the birds chirping happily as you read through your favourite book in the gentle breeze... it really makes my heart smile. Can't wait to find the next opportunity to return.
