“My Favourite Hotel So Far”

I think this may be my favorite hotel so far. My husband and I stayed there for a week when we were in the Cape Town area. Not only are the grounds beautiful, but the suite where we stayed was so spacious and beautifully appointed. Add to that the wonderful complimentary hot breakfast we enjoyed every day, it truly made for a most memorable experience. The staff was also very helpful. I would go back unreservedly, and recommend it to anyone who was looking for a luxury hotel outside Cape Town proper.

“An Oasis of calm”

What an oasis of calm so close to Cape Town. This property offered high end service, food and quality. To visit here after the busyness of being on the coast was heaven. The staff could not do enough for you and that personal touch still shone through even though it was bigger than our previous two stays. It was the only stay where we felt able to put the car away for a while and just enjoy what the hotel had to offer

If there is one place to put on your wish list, this is it. From the moment you arrive to when you leave you will be immersed in a hotel where the service is second to none, by every member of the team. This was my third visit and each one as good as the last. Well done to Tanya and all her team.

“Beautiful venue with good food”

We visited the restaurant! The place is gorgeous and a beautiful view. Their wine selection is vast and their food was very tasty! My friend even tried one of their cocktails and was very happy. Definitely will go back!

One of the finest experiences in a beautiful hotel I have ever had. The welcome with signature iced tea sets the tone of hospitality from the moment we arrived. Check in was smooth and our bags were whisked away by Franklin Myer, who was so much more than a bellman!! We were given much information about the hotel–however, this was our second trip to this magnificent place, so we didn\’t need a great deal of explanation! Henrica at the front desk is not only an exceptional, compassionate and kind human, she is meticulous in her professionalism and made sure we were helped in any way we needed. I am so sorry that I have forgotten the wonderful woman also at the front desk who arranged for our rental car to be picked up closer to the hotel, rather than returning to the airport –no easy feat The rooms are beautiful, luxuriously appointed and soooo comfortable! Every room looks out onto some spectacular portion of the property, which is a miniature version of Kirstenbosch Gardens. Natural beauty EVERYWHERE. The dining room had been recently remodeled: a treat for the senses. The food is always excellent here. Alice, was our server and she was attentive and welcomed us as valued guests daily. While walking the property on the beautiful paths for a couple of hours, as we were taking photos, a kind gentleman offered to take a photo for us…Johann. Turns out he is the facilities guru of all the Liz McGrath properties. We had a lovely talk with him and told him that because of our first visit in March to Cellars, we had decided to return to South Africa and do the Garden Route, visiting all the Liz McGrath properties. Johann advised on a road that was out due to flooding and saved us a miserable drive. He was so helpful and kind–seems to be rather the hallmark of all the Liz McGrath Hotels! If you have the opportunity to book Cellars, do not hesitate! It\’s a 20 minute ride to the waterfront –close enough but in the most heavenly location!!!

“An amazing Holiday in an amazing Hotel”

From the minute you are welcomed into the Hotel you feel that you are very special. The service from the front desk to the Restaurant is first class with nothing being too much trouble. The quality of the food was outstanding and the selection of wines were perfect. We stayed in a deluxe Suite which was very large and had a great outlook on one of the pools. It was never crowded and you could walk freely around the well kept gardens, sometimes seeing a resident turtle amongst the vines. Overall highly recommended as it is not in the City so a more relaxed stay. Overall one of the best Hotels we have stayed in and would recommend anyone who is thinking of going there

“The Conservatory at Cellars Hohenort, new amazing look!”

The Conservatory at Cellars Hohenort holds a special place in my heart because of its beautiful gardens, tranquil atmosphere, and stunning mountain views. But wow, I\’m blown away by the new look, it\’s stunning and I can\’t get enough of its rich textures and enchanting ambiance. The food was as delicious as ever and the staff provided exceptional service from arrival to departure. Our waitress, Keisha, provided perfect attention without being intrusive.
