Hotel Overview

sense of place

The hotel sits in the Constantia Valley, one of South Africa’s leading wine-producing regions overlooked by the iconic Table Mountain. During your stay, you’ll enjoy the best of both worlds, surrounded by picturesque natural scenery yet only 15 minutes from the city of Cape Town.

rooms at Cellars-Hohenort

The Cellars-Hoenhort’s 52 rooms overlook the iconic Table Mountain and the hotel’s neatly manicured lawns, and are traditionally elegant in their design. Some of the Double Rooms open onto a terrace overlooking the garden, and Premier Suites have their own garden space. For the ultimate in exclusive luxury, book the Madiba Villa, named for the legendary Nelson Mandela, and self-contained in a corner of the garden with its own private driveway entrance.

food & drink

Cuisine at the Cellars-Hoenhort draws on the natural bounty of the Constantia Valley to deliver exquisite food which is both artful and delicious. At Greenhouse, one of South Africa’s finest restaurants, delicate gourmet dishes are served up based on seasonal local produce, such as Indian Ocean tuna and Cape Town octopus. For a more relaxed and conservative dining experience, head to The Conservatory, where delicious, hearty dishes include barbequed springbok and Cape Malay rubbed line fish. The Martini Bar is a sophisticated spot to enjoy an evening cocktail.


The hotel’s beautiful landscaped gardens have garnered awards for their beauty and are great for walking, relaxing, and spotting the hundreds of indigenous flowers and plants which live here. There are also two swimming pools providing a respite to the afternoon sun, and a tennis court if you fancy working up a sweat. The Fresh Wellness Spa offers a range of relaxing treatments, including the signature Five Senses Massage, which use organic products and are delivered by expert therapists. There’s also a hair salon on-site, and a boutique where you can pick up one-of-a-kind homeware, clothing, jewellery and ceramics courtesy of some of South Africa’s leading designers.

activities at Cellars-Hohenort

The Cellars-Hoenhort is located a short drive from most of Cape Town’s attractions, including Table Mountain, Cape Point, Robben Island, and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Gourmands will love visiting the Bay Harbour and Neighbourgoods markets, before heading to Bo-Kaap to try out some of the city’s Cape Malay cuisine. If you’re keen to dive in to the area’s rich wine culture, board the Franschhoek Wine Tram, which takes you through the viticulture region of the same name via tastings and tours at leading wineries.
