Highlands Country House is the perfect venue for your weekend away, well deserved holiday, intimate wedding or even that (second) honeymoon. At Highlands a warm friendly welcome awaits you where good old fashioned excellent service is the order of the day. 14 individually appointed rooms are generously proportioned and all en-suite. Meals are individually prepared by the resident chef and the menu changes daily to suite your wishes. On request we can even host your own private dinner party, complete with place names, flowers and all the trimmings. Built in 1900, the Sir Herbert Baker house is set in the peaceful surroundings of formal gardens which boast 2 pools, a private spa and many secluded areas to relax and enjoy this home from home retreat. Afternoon tea is served at the pool or in the conservatory and of course the scones are homemade. Loose yourself in a book in the library or lounge or catch up on the news from home on the guest PC. Retire to your freshly made room and chill..... before dining in or out (of course we can arrange the transport), enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the bar or on the terrace and feel yourself transported from the everyday to the extra special. Highlands Country House - country tranquility in the heart of Cape Town.

I attended a workshop at the Highlands Country House and the entire experience was fabulous. There is easy access from the road, with secure parking inside. The rooms are warmly decorated, comfortable, spacious and clean, with a beautiful, demure cat that makes one feel at home.

Good day I would like to just take this opportunity to thank you for the kindness and generosity you showed towards us. I requested the use of your garden as the backdrop to my daughter’s Matric Ball photos at very short notice, late on Saturday morning. Madre was very friendly

"The attic rooms have stunning views"
"I slept in room 10, which is upstairs with a little view of city from the bathroom window."
"Request your preference for satisfaction as it is personal to you!"
"Don't take the gable room.."
"Avoid this place at all cost - there are far better accommodation available at better prices. This accommodation seems to prefer foreigners and one gets the feeling South Aficans are somewhat considered third class citizens."
US$134 - US$236 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
