About The Cellars-Hohenort

Situated in the heart of the Constantia Valley in Cape Town, South Africa, The Cellars-Hohenort is a haven of peace and tranquillity unifying two great traditions, the magnificent restoration of the 18th Century Klaasenbosch wine cellars and the splendid manor house of the Hohenort, previously owned by the Spilhaus family.

With its understated elegance and charm, the hotel boasts 52 luxury rooms and suites, with breathtaking views across the 9 acres of world renowned gardens and vineyard. There are two swimming pools, both are heated, a tennis court and a Gary Player Designed Chipping and Putting Green. The D & D Spa and Hair Salon await those in need of complete relaxation. We also have our Collection Boutique.


Each room is individually decorated with great style and appointed with exquisite antiques and an array of original paintings by South African artists.

Madiba Villa
A gracious, two-storey Cape-style home situated in the seclusion of our gardens, with its own private courtyard and small solar-powered & heated splash pool. It features a large sitting/dining room with fireplace, built in bar, service kitchen and a choice of two or three double en suite bedrooms with walk in dressing rooms.

Our honeymoon suite at The Cellars-Hohenort, The Dove-Cote, is secluded in its own garden, overlooking our Gary Player Designed Chipping and Putting Golf Green. Each room is sumptuously spacious and luxuriously appointed. The fireplace in the lounge is visible through French doors, from the king-size four-poster bed in the bedroom. A walk-in dressing room, and bathroom are en-suite, and lead out to a garden Jacuzzi, for that romantic soak as the sun sets over the mountains.

Premier Suites
We have nine suites of which two are situated in The Cellars Main House. The suite upstairs has a sunny bedroom overlooking the tranquil camphor walk, terrace and water garden. The other suite is on the ground floor and opens onto The Cellars pool and fern garden. The suite situated in the Hohenort Manor House is Edwardian in style and has its own private balcony overlooking the Herb and Citrus Terraces. The six garden suites are private maisonettes each featuring an elegantly decorated lounge, with its own closet kitchenette & mini bar, and opens onto a secluded luxuriant terrace / garden. Beautiful en suite bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and have views of the Herb garden and magnificent mountain or famous white gardens and reflecting pool.

All nine suites are located in The Cellars Main House and offer enchanting views of the idyllic landscaped gardens. Each suite is comprised of a cosy private lounge with mini bar and bedroom, decorated in a fusion of traditional and contemporary styles.

This stylish Restaurant is situated adjacent to the historic cellar, and carefully built around a giant 300-year-old oak, offers unparalleled garden vistas, whether you opt for the airy indoors or the sun-drenched terrace.

The Greenhouse Restaurant
The Greenhouse, has been given a beautiful new home, with a new look and exciting new menu. Beautiful Fern print wallpaper, curved shield back chairs and cork tiles helps to set the mood. The Greenhouse theme is accentuated with ferns, luscious orchids and the classic element of stone urns and artefacts.
