Features
Traditional style, Great views

Perched on a grassy plateau high above the waterfront, this 19th-century stone residence with sweeping Table Bay views was once the Harbormaster’s Mansion. After a major 2008 refurb, it opened as a glamorous six-room boutique hotel decorated throughout with ornate French mirrors, crystal chandeliers, contemporary charcoal artwork, and luxurious antiques like a Persian winged bed, set against a calming taupe palette. Upon your arrival, friendly linen-clad butlers—there are three of them—will gladly unpack your suitcases while you retire to the spa Tylarium (a sauna/steam room combo) or the gym, with its Table Mountain–facing treadmills. In the afternoons, culinary treats like crayfish wraps are offered to guests lounging around the elegant (and heated) swimming pool.
