About Palm House

Experience the warm Cape hospitality in this magnificent and elegant house that is a haven away from the turmoil of modern life. Surrounded by majestic palms this tranquil retreat overlooks the magnificent Constantiaberg Mountains, taking in the view of the “Twelve Apostles” and “Table Mountain”.

At Palm House our personal service and special attention to detail will ensure your stay will be an experience to be remembered. Palm House was designed by a protégé of renowned architect Sir Herbert Baker in the early 1920’s and has been lovingly restored to its full grandeur.

The entrance hall with its original oak floors and magnificent staircase greet you after entering the elegant arched entrance. Wood panelling open fireplaces and rich, relaxing and elegant décor will make you feel as though you are a special guest in a private home.

Excellent value, great stay, great rooms, great food and of course good time. The bed, pillows and rooms were comfortable and well fitted out. Clean and large bathrooms. The staff was very professional, friendly, caring and extremely helpful. In all, the best stay I have had in 5 days of my life.
