Steenberg Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa
With just 4 lavish suites, Steenberg Hotel is an exclusive sanctuary in South Africa's Cape Town. Situated on the 13th hole of the prestigious Steenberg Golf Course, this petite retreat gazes onto vineyards, manicured lawns and the majestic mountains beyond. Thoughtful details range from inviting mahogany beds, cozy fireplaces and a refreshing lap pool, to a state-of-the-art kitchen. Prepare a gourmet meal or request the services of a private chef for an intimate gathering in the elegant dining room, which seats up to 10.
Although you'll savor the convenience of your own home, you will also enjoy the VIP touches of resort living, such as spa appointments, tee times and restaurant reservations. You might spend a day exploring the wine estates of the Constantia Valley, or savor the once-in-a-lifetime experience of shark diving. Whether you horseback ride through pine forests or head out for deep-sea fishing, you'll want to end the day with sundowners on your private patio and watch the sun descend over Table Mountain.

Reviews for Steenberg Hotel
I stayed at Steenberg in late April 2017 for one night, and thoroughly enjoyed my time. The hotel is relatively small, so service is personalized and attentive from the get-go. Very easy check-in process with a brief orientation of the hotel to follow. The property is a beautifully renovated old Cape Dutch farmstead. As such, it retains the charming character of the original buildings and gardens, while still offering all the mod cons that one would expect from a five star establishment. It's a tranquil, peaceful place, without any of the entertainment and distractions offered by more mainstream hotels. Probably best suited to singles looking for a romantic break or more mature travelers, rather than families with small kids. The two restaurants on the property, Caterina's and Bistro 1682, are both good. Especially Bistro 1682. Breakfast is served at Caterina's, and it was good, but not exceptional. However, I had dinner at Bistro 1682, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A very enticing selection of small plates is on offer, and everything I had was superb. Service was top drawer as well. Beautiful setting to boot. It's right next to the Steenberg Estate wine tasting center, which is in and of itself, a very inviting and comfortable space. All hotel guests are offered a free wine tasting, and it's well worth it. Steenberg makes some excellent wines, and their whites especially are outstanding. And their champagne (and yes, I know it's not French and we're not supposed to use that word) rivals the best the French have to offer. I have only one bugbear, and that's the weird electronic room key one is issued. Maybe it was me, but I just could not get it to work properly. Opening my room door inevitably involved a trip to reception, or an irritating, fumbling process of trial and error until my door yielded. Other than that, I would highly recommend the hotel.

Stayed here for 2nights with my mom straight after our arrival from amsterdam. Arrival and reception was really good. Eventhough we had a late arrival they still made a very nice cheese platter with nice bubbels for us and can't arrive better. Breakfast and lunch as well as dinner at both restaurants is really fantastic. Everything we tasted was great. Room was perfect and spacious. Staff fantastic and really making an effort.

Everything we experienced at this hotel, spa and winery was fantastic. The setting, in sight of table mountain and set in it's own vineyards, is glorious. The staff are helpful without being intrusive, friendly without being overbearing. The food and wine was fantastic. Go there. You won't regret it.
Steenberg Hotel and Spa is a real gem. Beautiful location, comfortable rooms, our room had a magnificent bathroom which looked pretty new, lovely food and very attentive staff. Spa was also a great success as was the separate Bistro on the estate - wine tasting came as part of our room package. An added bonus was the complimentary drop off and collection to and from local restaurants, the couple we tried were both excellent. Will definitely return to Steenberg.

This was our 3rd visit and I am so pleased to find that the Steenberg feeling is still there. All the staff are so nice and the food is superb. This time we stayed in room 18 on the first floor of the Manor. The room was pretty big and very nicely decorated in beige and pink. One large window faced the nice garden and the other faced the mountain. Bathroom recently renovated with both a bathtub and shower.
