Wonderful secluded, discrete location with beautiful views of the bay. Secure, private, stylish and yet welcoming boutique hotel. Andreas and his wonderful mother run a slick operation. You get a breakfast table laid up for you outside your room on the deck - or on windy mornings it's set up in lovely room with 3 glass walls so you never lose the view. Uber is the perfect way to get around so once yourve negotiated the steep drive you can leave your car in total security and explore the city at will. A must is the Hout Bay Evening market - Andreas will tell you when that's on. We went on a Friday night - smashing good fun. The decor at The Platinum Boutique Hotel is chic - perhaps the towels are a bit tired and there were no pods for the coffee machine provided. Andreas offers bar drinks and wine - we thought they were expensive compared to what we had been paying elsewhere. However overall I highly recommend this little gem.

This is certainly a weekend away anybody would love to experience. The location is amazing, in a really tranquil area only a short distance from restaurants, bars and shopping centers. Absolutely stunning view from the all around house. I fully recommend you spend each day in the pool with cocktails, admiring this once in a lifetime view. Enjoy your stay, because unfortunately, it will be over before you even know it xo

One of the most beautiful, serene places in South Africa. Will definitely recommend to everyone i know. Not just was it easy to find but it was also perfectly priced for such an upmarket hotel. A truly wonderful experience.

Being comfortable, calm and just totally at ease with my friends was just what the doctor ordered. To add to the prescription, we were greeting with a sensational view and supreme luxury. Having fun around the lounge or on the lawn made me feel at home - my dream home.

Beautiful and clean. The views are unbelievable and the pool makes for a nice and clean dip after a hot day of activities. The house is perfect for friendly dinners and hosting events. I could not recommend this place more.

This place is a little gem, hidden in the woods of Mount Rhodes. Nice clean rooms, splendid view, close to Hout Bay beach and Llandudno beach. Friendly owner. Maybe the curtains could be a little thicker, so the sun does not wake you up very early.
