The Kronendal Heritage is a beautiful Guest House with only a few suites in an patriarchal Cape Dutch Estate.
It is about 5 minutes by car from central Hout Bay and the beach in a quiet and safe residential area.
The Guest House offers a maximum on privacy. You don't meet any other guest if you don't want to.
We had the Nora Suite which is huge and beautifully decorated.
There is a separate living room with a dining table and a fully equipped kitchen.
The bedroom is also large with a very comfortable bed and a modern en suite bathroom. We loved the provided products in the bathroom.
The entire suite is full of attention to detail. DVD and CD's, Candles and incense with matches, Flashlight, Fruit and Snacks, complementary Portwine, Coffee and Tee.
There is a private patio with a wonderful view and morning sun where breakfast is served at your preferred time in a nice set up.
The coffee is very good and the orange juice freshly squeezed. There is also Joghurt and fresh fruit, Toast and Croissants, Preserves and fresh Avocado (wich we appreciated very much). Eggs are made to order.
Breakfast is served with a smile.
In fact all of the staff and the owners are very friendly and did everything to make our stay wonderful and relaxed.
We enjoyed our afternoons relaxing on the property. The garden is beautiful and has a stunning view. The pool is long enough to swim in and there is enough space to enjoy the sun or the shade.
Unfortunately we had only 3 days here but we enjoyed it very much. We will definitely recommend this place and hope to be back soon.

Stayed at Kronendal Heritage during December peak season, my Finace' had just proposed and it was a surprise getaway, the staff were aware of the proposal and went above and beyond with complementary Champagne on arrival and heart in petals on the bed, they really went the extra mile. ALL staff were fantastic, very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was superb and so great to have it served privately at your room. Facilities we could just not fault. Lovely pool area (was my favourite spot) with beautiful views. We stayed in the cottage which was amazing, would highly recommend this option. Nice and quite and just above the main road in Hout Bay, have now fallen in love with the little town and cant wait to go back! Thank you Maggie, Cecillia and Beauty x

An excellent place with very high levels of comfort and finishing, space, a splendid swimming pool where you can actually swim, a fine atmosphere and a great service with personal touch. Hout bay is convenient basis for visiting the cape town region without big city hazzle.

We have visited the Cape since our honeymoon moon in 1985. We have also been lucky enough to stay in some of the best hotels in South Africa. If you want tranquility, superb service set in a beautiful location look no further. This place is right up there with the best.

i needed to have a day to completly unwind and this place has been perfect for that. Located in Hout Bay far from
The buzz of the city, this amazing hotel offers tranquility. With beautiful garden, great rooms, amazing service and spa you are garanteed to spend a very relaxed time. It is very cosy and the owners and staff are very friendly and there to assist you. The check out is 10 which is a bit early but they kindly allowed me to further extend that. It's breakfast only so would have to bring your own food or order or eat outside. I had a fantastic time there and will def return very soon. Def recommend it.
