    Small boutique Hotel with family touch in wine area. Breakfast was excellent with innovative options to choose from. The Groot Constantia wine Estate is worth a visit and is in walking distance through beautiful vinejards.

    beautiful setting. close to the Constantia wine farms and easy access to the M3 highway. Also good as starting point for the Cape Peninsula. The owner/staff are very helpful also with the local sightseeing.

    Hi Sally and Mike, I would like to book a room with a private patio for April 1 and 2. My partner, Carleton Palmer, and I will be flying into Cape Town on April 1st from Amsterdam. I believe the flight arrives at 9:15pm. We are booked on a tour with the South African Motorcycle Tour Group, so I believe they will have booked rooms for the 3rd, so maybe we could keep the same room for all three nights. Also, is the a shuttle service from the airport? Thank you for your help, Carol Keiser
