The Cellars – Hohenort
“Cape Town’s heritage: beautifully preserved buildings, gardens and local culinary experiences in South Africa’s oldest, most famous city and wine region”
The Cellars-Hohenort is located in “Cape Town’s Vineyard”, the historical Constantia Valley on the breathtaking slopes of Table Mountain. All 48 rooms and suites boast panoramic views of the iconic mountain or over the 9.5 acres of beautifully manicured gardens. Cape Town is South Africa’s oldest city, famous for its diverse cultures, natural beauty, cuisine and wine. The Cellars-Hohenort is ideally situated as a central point from which to experience the diversity of activities, including Cape Point, Robben Island, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the Constantia Valley Wine Route, the famous beaches of Boulders and Camps Bay. A mere fifteen minute drive will take you to the centre of the city and the V&A Waterfront. Back at the hotel there are three award-winning dining experiences overseen by Cape Town’s only Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef, Peter Tempelhoff. These include The Greenhouse where cuisine focuses on South African ingredients with modern interpretations, The Conservatory, serving simple beautiful fare and a selection of Liz McGrath’s favourite dishes and The Cape Malay Experience, an interactive evening showcasing Cape Town’s unique culture through its food. The relaxing Fresh Wellness Spa and D&D Hair Salon, a Gary Player designed golf putting and chipping green, intimate conference rooms, tennis court and much more ensures that The Cellars-Hohenort is the result of Liz McGrath’s more than twenty years of hard work, love and endless inspiration.
