of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We booked to stay at The Cellars having previously stayed at their sister hotels The Marine and The Plettenburg. The hotel itself is lovely but we were put in a suite in the grounds. The lounge area had no lamps so in the evening we had to have the main lights on which were so bright. The bathroom smelt of damp and the toilet was leaking. We did tell reception but nothing was done. The pool at Hohenort house was rather tired and in need of some work but at least it was warm. The staff in the restaurant were lovely and the food great.
Having seen previous Tripadvisor reviews, we were expecting something special for our 2 day stay there. From the moment we arrived, we were highly delighted - our only disappointment was having to leave. The hotel and grounds are truly magnificent and all the staff we had contact with, were charming. Our room was beautifully appointed and doors led out to a small terrace on the edge of the lawn, with a mother duck and a number of cute ducklings. On the first evening, we had dinner in the Conservatory, which had a good selection of dishes and an excellent wine list. The next day was my wife's 70th birthday and we were brought glasses of bubbly and fresh orange at 8am in our room. That evening, we returned from a night downtown to find our room decorated with birthday messages, chocolates and a bath with rose petals in it - a lovely touch. Unfortunately we had to leave and carry on with our tour, but we will be back again next year - for sure...
"5 stars elite hotel"
This hotel is a gem in Capetown. Great for vacation couples who prefer to stay away from the city and waterfront noise and vibe. Sitting in the park like slope of Table Mountain Constantia area of vineyards, oldest elite residential part of the city. Historical 100 years old buildings, nice gardens, pool, 2 top restaurants. Great service. If you want to be treated as a king - it's your place.
"My stay at the Cellar-Honenort"
It was great staying at the Cellar Hohenort where I was participating in a meeting from 14 - 19 November. What an amazing bunch. The following staff were exceptionally helpful: Kelly at the reception (who wonderfully introduced Angel the cat to me), Tahir and Ayanda in the restaurant. Margaret during the breakfast sessions was just one generous soul. Just FAB!!! And gorgeous surroundings. The room....super comfy.
The Cellars-Hohenort is a perfect retreat with two very good restaurants, one of them -the Greenhouse- is one of the top-restaurants in Southafrica, but also the Conservatory has a very good sellection of local food! Staff at reception as well as at the restaurant is extremly polite and helpfull. The decoration of all parts of the hotel is a very tastefull mix of modern and traditionel elements. But the best of all are the beautiful gardens including two pools and lots of small paths through lush vegetation.
