Our stay at The Stables this year was wonderful, as it always is. Lola is a marvelous host whose generosity and hospitality I unsurpassed. Next to that, she is gentle and has a great sense of humor. The stables is situated very comfortably close to all the interesting sites of Constantia: supermarkets, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Norval Foundation museum, Muizenberg etc. It is also very close to a few excellent Winehouses that offer tastings and superb food in their restaurants.
The Stables' rooms are cottage style, all with their own front door and nicely situated in the lush garden, that is kept very well. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the beds are comfortable. Wifi available in all the rooms, TV's too. Not that you'll have lots of time to watch. The style of the rooms and the main house is rural, do not expect LED lighting or bright white walls. The decor is stylish and consistently executed and feels warm and fits like a glove.
Breakfasts are scrumptious, with all the trimmings you can ask for, and more. The staff are friendly and warm and it really feels like you are coming into the home. The pre dinner drinks are legendary and on colder evenings, might be accompanied by a lovely fire.
Very highly recommended!

The Stables is an absolutely gorgeous gem where we stayed annually for the past 15 years and will continue to do so for years to come! A lush, secluded paradise full of flowers and birds with a small pool and well-maintained garden to sit in and relax. The cottage type rooms are comfortable and characterful. The main house contains a beautiful sittingroom full of books and pictures plus a well-stocked bar area for free pre-dinner drinks.
Lola Bartlett is a delightful and superb hostess who will always go the extra mile. She serves a delicious and generous breakfast which keeps you going for the main part of the day.
Parking on the premises, good security. Situated among the historical Constantia vineyards with easy access to local pubs, restaurants and galleries in the southern part of Cape Town.
Recommended!

what a beautiful stay I had. The cottage was gorgeous with 2 en suite bedrooms and set in breathtaking gardens - even in winter! The beds were comfortable, with lovely linen and a cosy duvet. The host, Lola, was very accommodating too. The position was perfect and central, without being in the centre. Can’t recommend this lovely stay highly enough. Thank you!

Room tip: Make sure you book in advance to avoid not being able to stay!

The Constantia Stables is, without doubt, an amazing experience. We have been staying here on our annual trip for many years and the comfort and charm are without compare. Securely located in beautiful lush gardens the accommodation varies between well equipped cosy rooms to self contained cottages with every amenity. Relax in or by the sparkling pool, or bath in shade or sunshine on the lawn. Lola makes every attempt to provide a very special experience including complimentary early evening drinks in the snug and a breakfast experience second to none. Constantia is a beautiful area in the company of wine estate and superb restaurants, and all within easy reach of Cape Town's famous waterfront, Table Mountain and several beautiful bays. If you are planning a visit to this area, this is the place to stay.

Room tip: One double room cottage with private balcony and kitchenette for two or two en suite rooms cottage with living room and kitchen for four.

We return every winter for a holiday and love staying with Lola at The Stables. Her welcome and hospitality is second to none. The garden is beautiful and lovely to relax in, under the trees. Constantia is a great area for exploring Cape Town.
