Escape the hustle and bustle of city life with a stay at The Alphen.

A five star boutique hotel in the picturesque Constantia winelands, The Alphen combines a rich history with an inviting atmosphere and refined elegance. Once a working farm and wine estate, The Alphen guests can expect a selection of suites with the finest finishes, as well as a range of activities to explore in the area. Hotel services include a nightly turndown, in-room dining and a large swimming pool for the exclusive use of guests.

The ideal getaway for those wanting peace and quiet a mere 20 minutes from the city, The Alphen is also located close to many wine estates, restaurants and shops – increasing the range of experiences on offer to both local and international travellers.

Steeped in stories, Constantia is one of Cape Town’s oldest suburbs and home to the famous Groot and Klein Constantia, Buitenverwachting and Eagle’s Nest wine estates amongst others. Over three centuries have presided over this valley, with countless historical figures interwoven into its personality – details that give The Alphen Hotel its distinctive character. Tours and transfers can be arranged at reception for guests wanting to explore the famed beaches of the Atlantic Seaboard or the vibrant atmosphere of the city centre.

Settled at the base of Wynberg Hill, the original Alphen farmhouse is now a National Monument – a detail that hasn’t been lost in the hotel. A modern, playful touch has been added, while preserving the traditional hospitality and comfort that can only be found in a heritage building. Opt for a leisurely breakfast at La Belle, lunch in the gallery-style space of Blanko and evening drinks at Incognito as all three eateries are conveniently located at The Alphen and offer the kind of refined experience synonymous with the Kove Collection. Expect delicious fare with heart in a heritage location, followed by a tasteful exploration of local craft gins.

The Alphen invites guests into a world where luxury and history meet, and each stay is spent in utter relaxation.
