The Vineyard Hotel is one of the original Cape Town hotels and offers a delightful alternative to staying in the city centre. (Cape Town is a city of several discrete areas each with their own attractions and so the city centre is not necessarily where you want to be). This vibrant hotel lies in 6 acres of garden with rolling lawns and established trees has an excellent location in the leafy Newlands area only 15 mins from the city centre & V&A Waterfront yet closer to Kirstenbosch gardens and wine estates of Constantia. The hotel terrace and gardens, complete with trails along its river frontage, have glorious views over the forested slopes of Table Mountain.
The 200 year old Vineyard Hotel oozes with history with many original letters and paintings of its first owner, Lady Anne Barnard, on display in the public areas. However why we like the four star Vineyard Hotel so much is the seamless combination of an established hotel, which runs like a well-oiled machine – with new contemporary styling – in the bedrooms and in the two restaurants. The original foyer leads into the conservatory restaurant, the Square, for breakfast, lunch and relaxed evening dining with a focus on sushi and Asian dishes. Beyond the conservatory are the various sitting rooms and bar with French doors opening onto the expansive terrace overlooking the gardens and Table mountain – also the venue for alfresco breakfasts and lunches. The hotel also has Myoga Restaurant, one of the best restaurants in Cape Town, renowned for its contemporary fusion style of cooking with a superb tasting menu on offer.
The hotel is filled with works by leading South African artists and offers a choice of either Mountain facing or Courtyard facing rooms (standard or deluxe rooms with a terrace), or the contemporary and luxurious River Suites. All offering dressing gowns, tea & coffee facilities, minibar on request, satellite television, telephone, international computer connections and sockets, 24 hour room service as well as glamorous modern marble bathrooms with separate shower. Families are welcome at the Vineyard Hotel with one extra child being able to share with parents and a small number of inter-leading rooms.
At the south end of the hotel gardens is a large outdoor swimming pool. Adjoining the pool area is the hotel’s well-equipped fitness centre, indoor heated pool, healthy eating restaurant as well as the superb Angsana spa. Its full range of treatments is very popular with hotel guests and locals alike so we strongly recommend that booking ahead to avoid disappointment.
The Vineyard Hotel is well-positioned to enjoy all the delights of Cape Town. It’s easy to get to the city centre and the V&A Waterfront whilst the Kirstenbosch botanical gardens are close by and the Constantia wine estates lie only 10 mins drive to the south. We recommend that you take a rental car or engage a private guide. However the Vineyard also offers complimentary shuttles to the stylish Cavendish Square with its up market boutiques and to local restaurants, though it’s only a five minute walk.
