The Cellars-Hohenort lies in the heart of the Constantia Valley within nine acres of magnificently landscaped and exquisitely planted gardens. A true plantswoman owns this privately run hotel and the lovely grounds repay close attention as well as being the perfect backdrop for the eighteenth-century Cape Dutch building with its sparking white walls. In addition, the world famous Kirstenbosch Gardens are adjacent to the hotel making this the perfect destination for the informed horticulturist or lover of beauty.
Once the renowned Klaasenbosch Wine Estate, vines still clamber over the exterior, roses scent the terraces and velvety lawns entice you to round the next corner. A potager provides many of the vegetables and herbs for the two excellent restaurants. "Novelli at the Cellars" was set up by superchef Jean-Christophe Novelli and serves a highly sophisticated cuisine using the good, fresh, local produce. The Cape Malay Kitchen serves wonderfully spiced and flavoured traditional South African dishes. The Sommelier is a fount of knowledge and will guide you through the impressive selection of wines.
Rooms at the Cellars-Hohenort are stylishly and individually decorated in true country house style yet with all the comforts of a modern hotel. Lovely fabrics set the mood of the rooms and blend with the good antique furniture and the garden beyond. All accommodation has spectacular views - the hotel sits below Table Mountain and looks out towards False Bay. Those not content just to wander the gardens are very well catered for. The swimming pools (one exclusively for the Presidential Suite), croquet lawn, tennis court, beauty spa, netted driving-range and Gary Player-designed one-hole golf green ensure a visit full of both interest and relaxation.
