Very privileged to have been at this awesome venue. The setting is superb as are the grounds and the hotel. The staff could not do enough for us so the service was beyond good. A thanks to Craig who saw to it that we lacked nothing and to top it off the food was fantastic

I didn't get the chance to stay here but. And for drinks on a Sunday afternoon post walk/run/hike. Great selection of beers and wines in a beautiful setting. Non guest can use the bar and gardens, double check for timing.

Beautiful hotel and well appointed rooms. I really enjoyed my stay at the Alphen, it was a great base of operations both for business meetings and sightseeing around Cape Town. The service was truly outstanding with friendly and helpful staff at every turn.

However, I was truly...
