Sadly The Alphen have installed a new policy on entry at the boom. One is now required to wear a mask in your car or the ‘camp guard’ security will not let you pass. This saddens me as we are tolerating massive loss of freedoms with Govt dictates and business’ should not be making further rules that don’t make sense. They are not the govt. I love The Alphen and particularly La Belle and know the wonderful staff there as we have not only lived at the hotel for 2 months when we first arrived in Cape Town but have enjoyed the restaurant on many occasions . I was required to reverse to get back onto the main road and was ‘not allowed’ whilst in my car to pass the boom so that we could leave. We are happy to take our patronage elsewhere and enjoyed a fabulous brunch at Botanicum down the road instead. A more sensible approach to dictates are practiced there. This will be our new family brunch destination until La Belle reverse their drive in policy. We will continue to do so until management at The Alphen address their Fascism.

Hi there. We are sorry to hear that you did not have a great experience when entering The Alphen. Our members of staff have been requested to take all COVID protocols seriously for the safety of our guests. This is only in our patrons' best interests and we see it as a positive response to a difficult time. We would love to have you back at la Belle / The Alphen. Until such a time that regulations relax we unfortunately won't be able to amend our entrance regulations. We do look forward to having you back soon. Kind regards, The Alphen team

A well established stylish boutique hotel. Room was very spacious, beautifully appointed with vintage touches and I appreciated the light flowing in. Library to meet or sit on my laptop was inviting. Dining and bar options are superb with three restaurants to choose from. Cuisine and bakery were on point. Staff at the ready to delight.

We traveled as a couple to celebrate my husband's birthday on a deal that included breakfast and dinner. From the minute we checked in everything was sensational - glass of bubbles at reception followed by a complimentary birthday cake left in the room, accompanied by a handwritten birthday note. The attention to detail, staff, facilities, food and cocktails were FAULTLESS!!!! As locals we were treated in a manner I have not yet received in South Africa and can highly recommend this hotel to anybody who wants to experience understated, friendly luxury. A true 5 star experiences that we WILL repeat! Thank you to all staff of the Alphen hotel - we will be back!
