The Townhouse Hotel, Cape Town

The Townhouse Hotel is set in a surprisingly tranquil corner of the city centre, adjacent to the South African Parliamentary precinct and the historic oak-lined avenues of the famed Dutch East India Company Gardens which were established some 350 years ago to offer provisions and respite to visitors to this port. Though it offers 4-star comforts and amenities decidedly more 21st century, the Townhouse Hotel is still an intimate, individualized hotel experience, with just 106 selected en-suite accommodation options – from spacious singles to deluxe and junior suites.

Beautifully designed and newly refurbished, these inviting climate-controlled spaces include free high-speed Internet and DSTV, and personal touches like freshly-baked cookies from their Michelin- trained executive chef, who conceives the hotel’s gourmet menu, showcasing unique South African flavors and vintages.

For leisure seekers, it is are a natural point of departure to attractions like the Cape Town Castle, major museums and the souvenir shopping mecca of Greenmarket Square, while the V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain are easily accessible.
