I love The Constantia. I go to Cape Town regularly and stay there as much as I can. Perfect location in the heart of the Cape Town winelands, huge rooms, delicious brekkie and really lovely staff. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is the second attempt by these guests to discredit our hotel. The first complaint was removed by Tripadvisor because it made personal attacks on people who they seemed to dislike. We cannot remove any correspondence at our liberty if we don’t agree to what has been written. It is the sole prerogative of Tripadvisor. Many hotels experience guests who... More
