Your getaway in Gardens

If you’re looking for a convenient spot from which to explore Cape Town but don’t want to skimp on panache when it comes to your lodgings, the Welgelegen Boutique Guest House is the place for you.

Sitting at the foot of Table Mountain, Welgelegen (meaning "well-placed" in Dutch) consists of two beautiful 19th-century houses. Welgelegen is situated in Gardens, an old suburb in in a quiet part of Cape Town's city bowl area, close enough to walk to the shops, restaurants, and cafes along Kloof Street but far enough away from the traffic and city noise for a peaceful stay. Being located in the city bowl means that you are no more than a few minutes away from your next adventure. Accommodation consists of 13 Rooms, each individually decorated to a high standard with varying additions such as Juliet balconies or private gardens. Each room has air conditioning, mini-bars, and satellite TV and en-suite bathrooms. Welgelegen provides a delicious breakfast and, while dinner options aren’t available, your hosts will happily make dinner reservations on your behalf at the restaurants on Kloof Street, Cape Town's "fine dining mile".
