This boutique hotel sits charmingly amongst acres of its own landscaped gardens, all within the historic estate of the Constantia Valley. A very personal bolthole, Alphen only has 21 suites, so you can really make yourself at home here. Spend your days ambling through the lush greenery and alongside rivers in the Constantia Valley. While spend your evenings unwinding in the hotel’s outdoor Rose bar. The perfect respite from the daily grind we say.
Set deep within the Constantia Valley, Alphen is flanked by a multitude of greenery, vineyards and wineries. If you’re feeling energetic and in the mood for a little more action, the hotel lies only a half hour from the Cape Town’s centre, so you can easily dip in and out of the city.
From your abode you can expect a classical charm blended with modern, high-tech amenities. A real taste of Colonial Dutch style. With plenty of rooms all catering to different needs, we’re pretty sure you’ll find a suite that takes your fancy, whether this be a room equipped with his and her bathrooms or a private terrace.
Why we like it
Self-confessed foodies, we’re massive fans of the hotel’s two restaurants. The sophisticated 5 Rooms restaurant provides the perfect evening spot for some fine wining and dining; whilst La Belle Cafe and Bakery serves up some scrumptious freshly baked goods at breakfast. We still can’t stop thinking about the blueberry flapjacks. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you…
