I knew nothing about Colona Castle until I "stumbled" upon it whilst looking for accommodation in Cape Town. It was nothing less than spectacular. We stayed there for four nights at the beginning of our trip to South Africa and two nights at the tail end. I felt like we had been transported out of our "ordinary" life to something from a movie. The views were spectacular, the house out of this world and the attention to detail wonderful. David and the rest of the staff could not have been more accommodating.Michael and Nicole made us feel like cherished house guests instead of "customers". I give Colona Castle six stars.
"What an experience!!"
I stayed there for two nights and I wished I could stay more. The view next to lake, so awesome. One can see far because of the place where Colona is situated. I love everything in there, the food, the suite I slept in, the gesture of the people in there made me love that place even more. The antiques inside, blew me away. Also the view just outside the Castle, the flowers (lavender and the white roses) ooooh!! they just made my heart skip a bit.
"Time-warped into a bye gone elegant era!"
Colona Castle is strategically placed to access main places of interest on the Cape Peninsula without having to drive in and out of Capetown city. It's also well placed to visit Franschhoek and Hermanus. Best of all is the Colona Castle's attention to detail, impeccable, discreet service and local knowledge. We stayed in the Green Room and our conservatory overlooked the courtyard and pool with views towards False Bay. The perfect spot for morning coffee and afternoon tea. An exquisitely prepared and presented candlelit dinner with the ambience of a roaring log fire typified the elegance that made our wedding anniversary memorable. If you relish a superbly comfortable bed, crisp bed linen, fluffy heated towels with complementary luxuriant toiletries then the Colona Castle will suit your requirements as it did ours! Thank you Nicole and Michael and your wonderful Team.
Stayed here for our honeymoon and could not have been happier! Hotel is really nice with beautiful views! The staff was super helpful and made sure our stay was as pleasant as possible! Would definitely recommend this hotel especially for a honeymoon. You can enjoy the peaceful sounds of nature as you will not hear noise from city traffic. Room was fantastic and spacious. Could not have asked for a better place!
"On top of the world"
My husband and I spent a night at this BnB in Lakeside, Kalk Bay. Beautiful position on the side of a mountain offering lake and ocean views. We were allocated the Green Room, which was comfortably furnished and offered a cute little balcony. Breakfast was served in a room filled with antiques and made to order. Old charm and elegant, perfect for couples although I must mention quite a few stairs.
