"Unexpected gem"
Overnight stopover during garden route travels . Excellent experience with Chris and his team making you feel welcome from the moment you arrive until you leave . Rooms are comfortable and very clean . Gardens well maintained and encourage you sit back and relax and enjoy the sunshine . The restaurant is like an oasis in a desert with some of the best food I have enjoyed in south Africa . A substantial menu choice in a very nice restaurant with great service and excellent food . Would definitely recommend that you experience this hotel and the great service from Chris and the team for yourself and don't think that you will be disappointed and will leave with a smile on your face. Will definitely stay here again

Mike and May were wonderful hosts, I went for a cycle with Mike around the area which was very interesting. Our room was very good with a lovely balcony overlooking the garden. The place was very clean and facilities were excellent. If we return to South Africa we will certainly stay here again.

    Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels in Western Cape

    Discover Western Cape’s Rich History

    The Western Cape is a region steeped in history. Originally inhabited by the indigenous Khoi people, the Cape was later populated by European settlers, including French Huguenots, the Dutch and the British, as well as Malay slaves, all of whom arrived in the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries. This range of cultural influences can still be observed all across the Cape.

    Historic Hotels in Western Cape

    To experience the storied history and multicultural heritage of the region, stay in one of Western Cape’s historic hotels. Opt for a characterful 19th-century country house packed with Victorian-era furniture and flourishes, or stay in an even older manor house set amid the vines of the Cape Winelands. Functional yet rustic guesthouses offer great options for budget travellers.

    Western Cape Attractions for History Enthusiasts

    Whether you’re a keen amateur historian or simply want to know more about South Africa’s past, the Western Cape is an excellent spot for a history lesson. Start at the famous Robben Island, home to the prison where the late Nelson Mandela was once held. It now functions as a museum and visitors can even enter the small cell where the former president was confined. For more information on Apartheid-era South Africa, visit the District Six Museum in Cape Town.

    Explore Museums and Fortresses from Your Western Cape Hotel

    Rewind the clock even further back at the Castle of Good Hope, a colonial fortress built by the Dutch East India Company in the latter half of the 17th Century. The Iziko Slave Lodge in Cape Town, which has served as a brothel, post office, jail, mental asylum and court in addition to being a residence for slaves, also recalls the early colonial era. Now a museum, the lodge documents the experiences of slaves in the Cape.

    For some French flair, wander the streets of Franschhoek, a popular 18th-century destination for incoming Huguenots. Evidence of its French heritage is everywhere, from its street names to its wine cellars. Delve into the history of the Western Cape’s Islamic community at the Bo-Kaap Museum in Cape Town. For a primer on the Cape’s 350-year-old wine-producing history, Groot Constantia is the go-to spot.
