The Cellars-Hohenort property is an idyllic picturesque, gorgeous property. We had the privilege to spend a day at the property for a work-related event, from the conferencing facilities to the restaurant/eatery everything was immaculate and such a lovely experience. The day ended with dinner at the Conservatory, from the moment we stepped into the space it felt warm and this was not only from the heated flooring, but the entire team also embraced us with such warmth and care, one could see that they take absolute pride in what they do. Every meal placed in front of us was delicious, I personally had the “Aged Boland Cheese Souffle with Gin Cheese Sauce its was gorgeous soft and bouncy. For mains I indulged in a Traditional Cape Malay Bobotie (just a hearty winter treat) but this one was definitely the perfected OUMA’S version that we all in SA grew up with and loved, as I am a vegetarian, I did the Mushroom and Lentil version (Thank You for the dietary inclusion :-) ) the dish came along with all the traditional sides, it was just beautiful. We didn’t have desert with dinner; however, we did have it with lunch, I did the Passion Fruit Semi-Freddo and 90% of the table tucked into the Buttermilk Mousse both were lovely super creamy on the mousse side and very refreshing on the semi freddo side. The Cellars Hohenort in all its quiet and beautiful grandeur is really a special place that must be seen and experienced by those who appreciate quiet, magical surroundings and a team that really just embraces one from the moment you pass the boom gates.

I had the pleasure of experiencing the Cellars-Hohenort’s new High Tea menu. This was coupled with an overnight-stay in one of their Premier Suites. The friendly welcome made a wonderful first impression. Throughout my stay I was impressed by the professional and accommodating attitude of the staff. The hotel and amenities are of a very high standard, as you would expect, luxuriously and tastefully decorated, surrounded by beautiful gardens. One gets the distinct impression of the hotel’s history, which dates back to 1693. The original paintings and all the fresh flowers added to the ambience. The High Tea consisted of 4 courses of delicacies presented in the stylish Greenhouse. We enjoyed classic sandwiches, irresistibly savoury treats and baked scones with all the condiments. We finished with an array of decadent cakes. We enjoyed a glass of MCC, along with a selection of different teas. The preparation and explanations by our waiter was pure theater. A wonderful aspect of the Cellars-Hohenort is that it is a dog friendly establishment, and our furry friends were suitably pampered. The suite was fantastic with numerous luxuries, each individually decorated, generous in size, light, airy and very comfortable. Stunning views! The delicious breakfast was served in the magnificent gardens surrounded by the stunning vistas of the Constantia Valley. My expectations were exceeded by all aspects of this memorable, idyllic experience. A big thank you to all the wonderful staff!

I was so privileged to go to the new High Tea at The Greenhouse at The Cellars Hohenhort Hotel on Friday. From a beautiful welcome (starting at the boom gate) we were spoiled with 4 delicious courses of the tastiest, most delicious delicacies. Not the normal run of the mill.... A lovely glass of MCC to start with followed by a choice of delicious teas....all new, all flavour filled and all totally exceptional. The staff were knowledgeable and made us feel like celebrities! What an experience!!!! And we'll worth it for under R400!! The Vegans in our group were catered for at the drop of a hat, which was REALLY impressive as the Chef was not warned. Well done to this wonderful new gem in our midst!!

This was my favourite high tea experience so far in Cape Town. Every single item included is absolutely divine and presented so creatively. The tea’s are also unique, some homemade, and presented on a tea light stand to keep it warm. We also had a fabulous MCC served on arrival. The best part however is that the hotel is pet-friendly! They welcomed my fur baby with open arms, a bed and dog bowls placed by our table. They even have a doggy menu. What also stood out from the very start is the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. They were extremely attentive and you can tell that they are genuinely happy to work there and they were just an absolute pleasure to be around. We stayed in the premier room which was sheer luxury and the attention to detail blew us away. The snacks in the room, the drinks, the bath robe, the bedding, the views from the terrace, the coffee and minibar, turndown, room service…everything was simply fantastic! Breakfast the next morning was just as lovely as we sat on the terrace overlooking the lush gardens, ducks and Mountain views. This wasn’t our first visit to the Cellars Hohenort and it certainly won’t be our last. Thank you for another incredible visit.

This is a wonderful villa a short drive from central Cape Town but feels like a remote getaway. The hotel is lovely, the grounds are spectacular, the rooms are luxurious and comfortable, and the staff are friendly and accommodating. We ate dinner at the restaurant twice and were treated like royalty. Our servers remembered our names and wanted to make sure we were having a great time. The reception staff eagerly helped us with a lot of travel details. We had an idyllic stay here and only wished it were longer. One of our favorite hotels in the world.

My husband and I, along with our son and daughter-in-law, stayed there for four days and totally enjoyed the experience. The food was artfully prepared and tasty, the wine list extensive, the grounds impeccable and beautiful, and the staff attentive and ever so happy to please. Our room was just lovely, with French doors leading to a small patio. Perfect. Definitely recommend The Cellars for a memorable and perfectly beautiful stay.

We stayed here for 3 nights with friends as part of a 'mini tour' of Cape Town area. We all loved everything about this place. We were greeted by Helenica who presented us with refreshing towels and a lovely ice tea and most of all an amazing genuine smile which made us feel immediately welcomed. Our room was in the Hohenhort building and overlooked the gardens and swimming pool. The overall feel of this place is one of warmth and tranquility and nothing seems too much trouble for anyone. We had dinner booked as a party of 4 which gradually expanded to 11 as family and friends who were staying nearby as part of a wedding party were accommodated without any fuss at all. The meals were fantastic with breakfast starting with a huge array of different foods complete with water and 'bubbly'. The dinners were outstanding and I can thoroughly recommend the Springbok. Thanks must go to Lisa who we bumped into several times and were captivated by her warmth and good humour. There were several other members of staff who seemed genuinely friendly and welcoming - the barman and waiter who served us most nights (so sorry didn't see your name badges). The whole of the Cellars exudes a warmth and opulence and along with the beautiful gardens made it a memorable stay. I hope we can come back again and experience the same hospitality.
