“Luxury vineyard hotel in the picturesque Constantia Valley, about 30 minutes from central Cape Town. Popular with everyone from couples to golfers, families and friends – as well as locals.”

Hotel Overview

“Located on the Cape’s first farm (est.1682), Steenberg Hotel offers faultless hospitability, fine food and wines amid beautiful vineyards. Dotted around the grounds are modern colourful sculptures by South African artist Edoardo Villa, a contrast to the whitewashed buildings. The staff are fantastic and always one step ahead in an entirely unobtrusive manner. The bedrooms have freshly-cut flowers and luxurious linen, while recently refurbished bathrooms are contemporary with organic products. Situated in the original winery, Catharina’s restaurant offers fine dining and delicious breakfasts. Alternatively, hop on the shuttle – or meander through the vines on foot or by bicycle – to sample the wines at Bistro Sixteen82 with its tapas-style menu. Back at the hotel, there’s a swimming pool, an 18-hole golf course and spa, while a shuttle will take you to nearby locations if you can tear yourself away from relaxing within the grounds.”
