The exclusive Steenberg Country Hotel is situated on the Cape's oldest wine farm, a mere twenty-minute drive from the bustling heart of Cape Town. The twenty-three bedroom hotel nestles in the tranquil Constantia Valley, against the slopes of the Steenberg Mountain.
The hotel buildings, dating back to 1682, have been fastidiously restored and have received National Monument status. Redolent with a sense of history, Steenberg ensures that the refined luxuries and conveniences of the modern age blend with the beauty of the past. The state-of-the-art winery on the Estate produces some of South Africa's finest wines, False Bay and the spectacular views of Chapman's Peak are but a few minutes away.
The private Steenberg Golf Club, open only to hotel guests, members and their guests, has an eighteen-hole championship golf course designed by one of South Africa's leading course architects. Meandering gently through the vineyards, pine forests and waterways, the course features four distinct areas and is renowned for having the best greens in Cape Town.
The hotel itself offers twenty-three individually decorated rooms, furnished with exquisite antiques, within the original Manor House, Jonker's Huis and the restored Barn.
Each house has its own lounge and all the bedrooms have views over the vineyards or the lovely gardens. The restaurant is housed in the original winery. Arches with wrought iron grilles display the restaurant wines on the original storage shelves.
The original Cape Dutch features are highlighted by the decor, and the sophisticated cuisine features regional specialities accompanied by vegetables that are mostly grown in Steenberg's own decorative potager-style vegetable garden. The quality of service is exceptional - the staff are both attentive and charming - and this boutique hotel offers a haven of serenity away from the stresses of modern life.
