I recently decided to have a staycation at The Cape Milner Hotel, which is about 1,5km away from my house. The hotel is located in the trendy Tamboerskloof district of the city, with views of the iconic Table Mountain.
Upon entering the hotel, we were welcomed by the symmetry of Art Deco and the ornate detail of Cape Town’s Victorian heritage with splashes of urban African design and vivid teals and mustards accenting the contemporary neutral finishings.
We started off our Saturday afternoon indulging in a light lunch and delicious cocktails under The Cape Milner’s tranquil pergola with Table Mountain as the perfect backdrop to set the mood.
After lunch, we had a quick recharge and relaxed moment in our room. For this particular stay, we were booked into a luxury room. No matter where in the world I stay, details always stand out to me, like the bottle of wine and macaroons as arrival gift we received, the Nespresso machine (always a win) and Africology amenities in the stunning bathroom.
The sound of the Sunday morning in a hotel suite was completely different than at home, especially after a great night’s rest, which felt like I slept on a cloud. There was a relaxing coffee in bed, followed by an early breakfast at the 2 on Milner restaurant at The Cape Milner Hotel which was utterly delicious.More
