The Cellars-Hohenort is a plush boutique hotel tucked away in 'Cape Town's vineyard' - Constantia.
The five star Cellars-Hohenort Hotel is tucked away in Constantia Valley, on the eastern slopes of the Cape mountains. The Meso-climate of the area makes it perfect for cultivating vineyards, and it is thus no surprise that the area has become known as ‘Cape Town’s Vineyard’. Some of South Africa’s first vines were planted in the Constantia Valley, and to this day the area is renowned for its world-class wines. The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel can trace its history back to 1693, when the property was home to Hendrik ten Damme, the then chief surgeon of the Dutch East Indian Company. Much later, in 1906, construction of the German-styled manor house began. Guests can enjoy the handsome architecture from the large pool, the tennis court or the chipping and putting greens that the hotel offers.
The hotel has 52 well-furnished rooms, each with a lovely view of either the mountains or the well-kept gardens. The rooms also feature South African artworks and every room has been uniquely decorated. All the rooms have air-conditioning, WiFi, seating areas and televisions with a DVD players. There is a wide variety of rooms to choose from, ranging from Double Rooms, Luxury Double Rooms, and Luxury Double Rooms with verandas, to Suites, Premier Suites and the Madiba Villa. The Madiba Villa has its own driveway and consists of three en suite double rooms that lead toward from a central courtyard. The spacious Premier Suites have their own kitchen and lounge facilities, while the Suites feature walk-in closet. As the name suggests, the Luxury Double Rooms with Verandas feature private veranda, and the Luxury Double Rooms and Double Rooms are just slightly less spacious.
The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel provides two exceptional restaurants, namely The Greenhouse and The Conservatory. The head chef at The Greenhouse, Peter Tempelhoff, oversees an award-winning team known throughout the region for incomparable fine dining. The Conservatory serves more traditional food, but still does not spare any effort to adhere to the highest culinary standards. The Conservatory is known for its grill section that uses high quality locally sourced meats. At the entrance to The Greenhouse, you will find The Greenhouse Bar, where some of the finest wines and champagnes can be enjoyed. The Martini Bar, adjacent to reception, will mix up a variety of cocktails to your liking.
