A movable pedestrian bascule bridge provides access from the bustling waterfront to this quiet, mansard-roofed hotel on its own private quay. The sumptuous interiors here (all redone in 2008) include dark-wood antiques, blue-and-white Dutch pottery, and richly patterned fabrics that evoke the region’s raw, exotic blooms. The 120 large and luxurious rooms, many with striped wallpaper and botanical prints, have one-of-a-kind artisanal pieces, like traditionally forged iron lamps and whimsical chandeliers made with dangling Delft saucers. The staff is warm and welcoming, whether they’re seating you at a handsome secretarial desk for check-in, delivering refreshments poolside or pampering you with African-infused treatments at the spa.

Room to Book:

Any room facing Table Mountain; the nicest are the fourth-floor Rooftop Terrace rooms and penthouse suites. (These don’t actually have rooftop access, but they do have private balconies with stunning views.)

Insider Tip:

Reserve the house BMW for a sightseeing jaunt to Table Mountain.
