Set on the cool eastern slopes of Table Mountain in the upmarket southern suburbs, just 15 minutes from the central city and airport and en route to some of the Peninsula’s top sights and attractions, it’s also within walking distance of the famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the international cricket and rugby mecca of Newlands, and the elite shopping precinct of nearby Cavendish Square.
The hotel is superbly set on one of the last historic parkland properties of its kind, covering 6 acres of indigenous riverside gardens – an eco-managed haven for local fauna and flora, and a secluded rest-stop for guests who have delighted in this rare place for over 115 years.
Centred on an original Georgian manor house, the Hotel today extends across the estate, with its 208 accommodations afforded unique views of gardens, mountain and riverside. Climate controlled, with 24-hour internet access, satellite TV, and the finest home-from-home comforts, room options include Luxury or Deluxe double en-suites, airy open-plan Junior Suites, private self-catering Cottages and extravagant apartment-size Suites, with wheelchair-friendly and interleading rooms also available.
Celebrated for gourmet fare, the Vineyard boasts no less than five eateries. Breakfast, lunch or dinner can be enjoyed at the popular contemporary-styled The Square restaurant and sushi bar, with global fusion style menus and Cape wines from a connoisseur cellar at the Conde Nasté-awarded Myoga. Coffee, cocktails and snacks are available indoors, or out at the convivial Garden Lounge, with health-conscious refreshments from the poolside Splash Café. Long Café, off the Hotel’s main foyer, offers Vineyard guests a truly ‘connoisseur’ coffee experience. Long Café serves a variety of exceptional coffees as well as light meals and a selection of sinful cakes and patisserie.
Among the many four-star rated facilities and services offered; from Cape sightseeing excursions, organised through our concierge, weekly Cape wine-tastings, memento shopping at our gift and collectibles boutiques, or dedicated hospitality for sporting, celebrity or special-needs guests, Vineyard Hotel remains a hotel landmark, and one of the most repeatedly requested stays in Cape Town.
