Cellars-Hohenort, Historical Manor in Cape Town’s Vineyard

A historical manor with a modern edge, The Cellars-Hohenort is all about blending the old and the new with Table Mountain views.

Part of The Liz McGrath Collection, and a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, this 5-star hotel is situated in what is known as “Cape Town’s Vineyard” – the historical Constantia Valley, which lies only 15-minutes’ drive from Cape Town’s city centre.

This oozing-with-elegance 17th-century manor makes an instant impression, standing proud in nine acres of simply stunning gardens. Make your entrance via a grove of Camphor trees, or the rose garden blooming with over 2,500 flowers. Together with a range of five-star services, the awesome facilities ensure the most comfortable and seamless of stays, full of spoils and pampering.


The mix of true-to-its-roots heritage styling and contemporary creature comforts in The Cellars-Hohenort bedrooms set you up for a day of adventure.

All the rooms, suites and villas provide the perfect base during your stay in Cape Town, with several room categories to suit all preferences and requirements.

The on-site restaurant, The Conservatory takes guests on an unforgettable culinary journey. Executive Chef, Tronette Dippenaar has created a classic menu with a focus on firm favourites, including some of Liz McGrath’s personal recipes.

Guests may choose from three special locations – the main dining section, with stunning views of the historical garden with its Camphor trees; the ‘breakfast room’; and the terrace overlooking the garden.

Those that hear about Cellars-Hohenort on the grapevine also come for its fine wine collection. The Martini bar shakes (and stirs) things up, transforming from sophisticated cocktail spot by night to High Tea venue in the day.


To ensure the most comfortable of stays, the hotel further features a ‘Fresh Wellness Spa’, a space for guests to truly unwind and enjoy a selection of pampering signature treatments, two pools, gym, tennis court, boutique and hair salon.
