Small, individual and calm hideway ideally for a Capetown visit. You can enjoy your breakfast directly in front of your room with pool and mountain view. The Platinum Boutique Hotel is run by a very nice German lady.

Fabulous views, lovely pool, excellent service, delicious breakfasts. Jacob makes sure you have everything you need, Andreas is on hand with excellent restaurant and walk recommendations. Only issue was the precipitous driveway - it takes nerve but we managed!
