With its central location and excellent facilities, this hotel ticks many boxes.

I grew up in Cape Town's southern suburbs, where the Vineyard Hotel & Spa is situated, and have seen its remarkable transformation over the years. As a schoolgirl I would often come here on a Saturday morning for tea and custard slices before hitting nearby Cavendish Square and its glossy stores. Back then the hotel was the converted 200-year-old home of a famed Victorian socialite Lady Anne Barnard. Though the original manor house with its many artefacts is still the central feature of the hotel, striking additions such as a new bedroom wing and swish eateries and facilities have taken it straight into the 21st century. It's no wonder then that it's a hub for business travellers and high flyers who know they need not worry about anything for the duration of their stay.

Location

Centrally situated in the heart of the southern suburbs, close to sporting and shopping facilities, fifteen minutes from the city and twenty from the airport.

Bedrooms

The bedrooms are a happy marriage of classic-contemporary comfort with thoughtful details like the softest mohair blankets and quirky touches of personality too. Our garden suite was a light and bright space with Zen-inspired sliding screens offering privacy between lounge and bedroom - the views of the mountain were glorious. The bathroom, while certainly luxurious, lacked a glam factor.

Public areas

Browse the cabinets of historical artefacts relating to the hotel in the quarry tile-lined reception area or take a walk in the sprawling six acre gardens. The intimate lounge is a popular all-day meeting and greeting spot while the sun-splashed terrace sees guests tapping away on their laptops.

Eating and drinking

Square is a swish sushi bar and cosmopolitan restaurant situated in the heart of the main building while Myoga is a flamboyant space serving up fusion fare.

Leisure facilities

A state-of-the-art gym, indoor and heated outdoor facilities ensure travellers' wellbeing while the world-class Angsana Spa offers an authentic Thai spa experience.

Service

There are lapses in service consistency when busy.

Who stays there

Corporate travellers and jet-setters alike.

Price advice

Value-for-money winter specials for both leisure and business travellers are a well-loved feature.
