We had the pleasure to stay overnight and dine at the Greenhouse, the quality of the food, accommodation and relaxing atmosphere made it a total pleasure to stay, comfort and class in a magnificent setting. We will be back to enjoy the experience again.

Splendid restaurant on the grounds of Groot Constantia. Delightful seating outdoors or inside the stunning Dutch colonial building. Food is of very high quality and offers a huge, diverse selection at different price points. Perfect spot for a sunny afternoon or evening dinner with or without the children.

Dear wincentiveman I am not clear that this review is meant for The Cellars-Hohenort as we are not on the grounds of the wine estate Groot Constantia, although we are in Constantia - but admittedly every other description does fit Kind regards Dominic

In December I visited this hotel with my daughter to enjoy afternoon tea in the beautiful garden. I'd previously enjoyed a wonderful experience. In spite of booking and mentioning we were there for the afternoon tea, we waited forever to be served. Eventually our tea arrived and was already finished and still NO food. I called the waiter over to...

There are few hotels in Cape Town, and South Africa for that matter, that can match the impressive architectural ensemble of The Cellars-Hohenort.
