Great location and grounds. We enjoyed the contryside and the pool was excellent. The rooms were clean, reasonably comfortable, and well equipped for self catering. The restaurant provided a good 'no frills' experience.

First impressions ended up lasting impressions. Having arrived with our son and grandson, the welcome was friendly from Ancha and Paddy. Family room was the best we've stayed in and everything worked so well. Hospitality could n't be bettered and so we'll be booking again soon.

Pocket Guide: Family-Friendly Hotelss in Western Cape

Family-Friendly Lodgings in Western Cape

The Western Cape has a wealth of accommodation options for families, with a wide range of hotels, inns, country and game lodges, B&Bs and self-catering cottages on offer.

Book a room in a fully-serviced hotel in the city, where the child-friendly attractions include an aquarium, science centre and a theme park. Alternatively, stay in one of the smaller towns of the Garden Route or in the wilderness of the desert-like Little Karoo. Western Cape is a great place for miniature explorers to get outdoors, with creatures that range from cute penguins to mighty rhinos.

Animal Excursions in Western Cape

The Western Cape is a wonderland for kids. There is plenty of open space for little ones to run wild, and a never-ending parade of fascinating animals for them to gawp at. Bring them to Boulders Beach, where the sight of African penguins teetering around the rocks is sure to get them smiling.

Take the family whale watching at the seaside town of Hermanus. The colossal cetaceans come up here to breed between June and November. On the beaches to the north, kids can build sandcastles, swim in protected coves and even learn to surf, while the remarkable inland reserves provide the chance to see rare animals such as rhinos and lions. Close to the city, attractions such as the Two Oceans Aquarium and the World of Birds allow for yet more unforgettable animal encounters.

Keeping Children Entertained in Cape Town

For a huge range of family-friendly hotels and attractions in Western Cape, head to Cape Town. Young brains will be stimulated at the hands-on exhibits of the Cape Town Science Centre and the Iziko Museum Planetarium, and junior rugby fans can test their kicking, fitness and reaction skills at the interactive Springbok Experience at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.

Tire out those little limbs with a hike up Table Mountain; if you are worried your children aren’t up to the challenge, ride the cable car instead. With a family-friendly Western Cape hotel, they’re guaranteed a comfortable place to rest at the end of the day.
