The Stables is a hidden gem in Constantia. It literally is hidden, as you cannot see it at all from the road. The drive starts at the end of the cul-de-sac and requires some precise navigating. It leads you through the lush garden up to the parking area and main house. Be prepared to meet one of the friendliest and kindest hostesses of the Cape provence: Lola Bartlett. She is a wonderful person, for whom no effort is too much. She has extensive knowledge of the area, Cape Town, restaurants, wineries etc. The Stables only has about 7 rooms, that are cottage-sale decorated in a very tasteful way. 5 of them are on the ground floor, and two are up one flight of stairs. All the rooms situated away from each other, so no neighbourly snoring at night. There is a lovely pool and lots of…
25 Minutes from the airport you find a literally hidden gem in the upscale residential area of Constantia. Surrounded by big trees you do not see any neighboring house after you mastered the narrow and long driveway. Lola is a fantastic host that brings her guests together like a family. The house is filled with books, family photos, guides, and memorabilia. Breakfast is as British as can be, plus a wide range of excellent fresh fruit, jams, and marmelade. We stayed in a "Tree house" room, having all the comforts (however no shower, just a bathtub), and plenty of light through many windows. What a great experience so different from the standard hotel chains.
My husband and I loved our stay at Stables. Lola was so welcoming - it was as if she'd known us for years! Our room was very spacious, with a really comfy mattress. The home made crunchies were amazing!! Breakfast was delicious lots of fresh fruit and also a good cooked breakfast. Any type of tea you fancy Lola will have it! Roaring fire in the dining room. Lola helped us arrange a taxi when a well known CT taxi firm let us down. We can highly recommend the people she uses. Sadly it was too cold to swim - maybe next time!
We spent 3 nights with Lola in the wonderful Constantia Stables. She had booked us dinner at an excellent local tapas restaurant for our first evening & her recommendations for the following days were perfect for us. Our room (the Foaling Stable ) was extremely comfortable & cosy, the breakfast choices were extensive & of a very high quality. We were just sad not to have spent more time with her & would thoroughly recommend this lace to anyone we know visiting the Cape Town area .
This was my third visit to The Stables, last here 14 years ago and Lola continues to provide the BEST B and B in the area and mixes a mean G and T. Stayed in Lily's Cottage this time round, a superb two bedroom/ bathroom self contained unit in its own secluded part of the grounds. The kitchen is totally complete with every utensil you could possibly ask for if the mood took you to cook for yourself and the cottage is stocked with games, books and guides to local places to visit and directions how to get there. Lola is a wealth of information, and can advise you on where and when is the best time to go. There is so much to see in Cape Town and sadly my son and I only had four days this time round but Constantia is a charming suburb and the Stables are well situated to offer a…
