Highlights of Welgelegen Guest House
- Owner run with friendly staff and warm hospitality
- Walking distance to Kloof Street restaurants
- Stylish accommodation
Welgelegen Guest House is a stylish boutique lodge set in two pretty Victorian buildings, in a quiet cul-de-sac in the Gardens area of Cape Town city bowl – adjacent to trendy Kloof Street with its inviting bistros, restaurants and shops. Welgelegen is Dutch for ‘well-placed’ and this is an apt comment as the lodge lies at the foot of Table Mountain and is only five minutes drive from the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town city centre or the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay.
Welgelegen is perfect for those seeking stylish accommodation with a friendly ambience, but who don’t need all the trappings of a five star hotel. Welgelegen Guest House combines both the charm of the Victorian era, with wooden floors and well-preserved architectural details, with an understated contemporary style. Bedrooms all have satellite, telephone, air-conditioning, TV, bar-fridge, tea/coffee tray and stylish modern bathrooms. The breakfast room and sitting area is chic and modern with African artefacts specially selected by the owner. There is a quiet courtyard garden with a small plunge pool, ideal for alfresco breakfasts.
