Situated on the Sea Point Promenade, this Cape Dutch—style hotel faces the Atlantic on one side and Table Mountain on the other. Built in the 1920’s, the hotel evokes vintage glamour in the common areas, furnished with antiques and fireplaces, while the 76 guest rooms are more modern, with neutral tones, clean-lined furniture, and either ocean or mountain views. On-site amenities include a spa, a heated outdoor pool, and a complimentary shuttle to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Harveys, the hotel restaurant, serves South African—European fusion fare in a colonnaded courtyard with ivy-covered walls and a wrought-iron fountain.

Room to Book:

For the quietest stay and most impressive view, request a high-level room facing the ocean.

Insider Tip:

The restaurant’s Sunday jazz brunch is extremely popular with both guests and locals, so don’t forget to book a table in advance.
