Hotels in Western Cape
Overlooking False Bay in the Constantia Valley, this small boutique hotel is located on the Steenberg Vineyards, part of the region’s oldest farm. Built in 1862, the main farmhouse and surrounding cottages are classic Cape Dutch, with whitewashed walls, thatched roofs, and decorative gables.
Just 30 minutes outside Cape Town in the charming town of St. James, the opulent 1930s house-hotel (built by gold-mining billionaire JB Taylor) sits atop a hill with a gorgeous view of the ocean.
The Feather Palace, a red-roof mansion just off the R62, is part of a stylish working guest ranch owned by a gay couple from Durban.
This stylish Cape Dutch guesthouse has eight rooms and a swimming pool, on Prince Albert's main street.
On a stretch of savagely gorgeous coastline, 90 minutes southeast of Cape Town in Hermanus, sits this spare, white-on-white, colonial-style, 10-room inn at the water’s edge.
