Some awesome places to stay in Cape Town

Some awesome places to stay in Cape Town
Author - Mal Flawith     Blog Published - July 25th, 2015

It’s about time that we gave you a taste of some of the fabulous hotels that are in the Cape Town area.

The problem with doing this is that it’s really hard to draw a line between B&B, Guest House, Boutique Hotel and a pure Hotel and South Africa has an abundance of really high class hotels at every level so forgive us if we cross the line a bit and just give you a collection really great places to stay.

These are not in any specific order of preference so I decided start with one of the smaller establishments.

The Vineyard Hotel

The Vineyard 715

OMG!!!! This place is fabulous. If you do nothing else today go and check out their website.

The Vineyard Hotel is a 7-acre riverside garden estate on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, over the hill from the city. Originally a country cottage, built among vineyards by legendary Georgian, Lady Anne Barnard, is today a 207-room luxury hotel. If you add to this a truly awesome restaurant and wine cellar experience then you will walk away with memories of South African hospitality at it’s best that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.

The Victoria and Alfred

V&A 715

If you want to really enjoy the Cape Town Waterfront then the V&A just can’t be beat for access to all of the great restaurants and nightlife that is available there. If you look at the picture above, just out of picture on the right is the Den Anker Belgian bar and restaurant.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel a couple of years ago and it is going to give you everything that you need in terms of luxury, comfort, service, dining options so don’t be afraid to stay at the V&A, you honestly cannot go wrong.

Compass House

Compass  715

Compass House is a stunning boutique hotel in the heart of Bantry Bay, Cape Town and it really does have the best view in the world.

Located in sheltered, wind-free Bantry Bay, just two minutes from the beach-front and ten minutes away from the city center, guests can enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean from every room.
Compass House enjoys a warm atmosphere, with a fusion of interior design styles, blending the best of Mediterranean, Asian and African flavors and has wooden floors throughout.

A large swimming pool and patio lend themselves brilliantly for day-time relaxation and witnessing the beautifully blissful South African sunset.

Cape Grace

Cape Grace  715

If you go to the Intripi home page you will see a similar picture of the Cape Grace as one of our main pictures, we used it at the top of this blog because we feel that the picture captured a lot of the essence of Cape Town.  When wandering around the V&A Waterfront you cannot help but notice and admire the Cape Grace Hotel with it’s backdrop of Table Mountain looming majestically behind which is one of the reasons that we chose the picture.

Staying at Cape Grace is an experience in itself, with all of the modern comforts of a Cape Town luxury hotel with traditional Cape culture there is no better position for a V&A Waterfront hotel than with Table Mountain standing sentry and towering over the hotel, a working harbour to one side and a multi-millionaire yacht basin on the other.

It’s a heady mix of tantalizing experiences, which makes time spent at Cape Grace something to remember forever. It is a tad on the expensive side but hey, life is for living right?
