Steenberg Hotel & Spa is a gracious boutique hotel in Constantia on the outskirts of Cape Town. It offers 24 elegant air-conditioned rooms built around an exquisite Cape Dutch Manor House dating from 1682. The five star Steenberg Hotel aims to combine three key elements in one hotel – Food and Wine, Spa and Golf – and it certainly succeeds in doing this.
In the Manor House at Steenberg, rooms are furnished with antiques and sympathetic décor, some with their own lounges. In contrast the Premier rooms are more contemporary with open plan bathrooms and romantic free standing baths. Rooms in other buildings have a modern have classical decor. All have en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, air-conditioning, satellite TV, telephone, mini-bar, and tea/coffee making facilities.
The luxurious four Heritage Suites in the old Jonkershuis, each with one or two bedrooms, offer some of the most luxurious accommodation in Cape Town. These offer the ultimate in stylish living whilst on holiday.
Facilities at Steenberg
The massive grounds of Steenberg Hotel are wonderful to explore either on foot or by mountain bike. There’s a large swimming pool with adjacent pool bar, and a very popular Gingko Spa offering a full range massage and beauty treatments. Surrounded by its own pristine vineyards and nestling at the foot of the mountains, Steenberg Hotel combines proximity to the sights of the Cape Peninsula with a tranquil environment.
Wine & Dining
Steenberg’s wines are gaining great acclaim and you can visit the Steenberg Winery for a complimentary wine-tasting. Steenberg’s restaurant, Catharinas, has won awards for its sophisticated, contemporary South African cuisine created by Executive Chef Garth Almazan. It offers a warm, sophisticated ambience with the accent on beautiful wood, soft lighting, and chic table appointments. All meals can be taken outside on the terrace in good weather. The luxurious, leather clad Cigar Bar offer a selection of delicious cocktails and cigars.
Children are very welcome at Steenberg Hotel with plenty of space for children and their parents to explore. There are two family suites with two bedrooms/one bathroom.
Activities from Steenberg Hotel
Though the Steenberg and Constantia are 20-25 minutes from the heart of the city, Steenberg Hotel is actually very well-situated for enjoying all the sights of Cape Town. Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens are only 10 minutes away and the various wine estates of the Constantia valley are on your doorstep. The popular scenic drive around Cape Point and Chapmans Peak is much more easily accessed from Constantia than from the city centre. Ideally we recommend either taking a rental car or a private guide but complimentary transfers to nearby shops & restaurants are available.
Surrounded by vineyards, Steenberg’s parkland 18 hole golf course lies in the verdant Constantia valley with mountain and forest views. Designed by Peter Matkovich, you enjoy some testing and varied golf with tee boxes amongst the vines, much use of water, and natural sand banks in the heathland. The Steenberg golf course offers special rates for Steenberg hotel guests.
