I am an hotel snob....if you say you say you are five star I sort of expect six. The Alphen does just that; it exceeded expectations. We only stayed there because we went to an antiques fair last weekend and nipped into the Rose Bar for a drink. Shaun our host/manager was SO welcoming we decided to stay this weekend....

Second stay for my family at the ALPHEN and... again the same pleasure of experiencing the unique atmosphere of that place, full of charm , where you can only feel relax and "cool" even if standing and high quality are also there.

A good place to dine out. Service was good, food was very good, price was reasonable. We have been to the Alphen many times and have never been dissatisfied with service or food. Quality is good, and both restaurants attract repeat business.

We are loving our stay at the Alphen. Stunning hotel suite. Charlene, at the front reception desk, has literally gone above the call of duty with committed service and surprises (sending up a basket of delectable sweets, arranging for a bath butler to draw us a hot bath while we were out at dinner). Excellent gnocchi and we found a...

I found the service really let down the Alphen. The staff seemed disinterested in their jobs and consequently gave bad and sloppy service, which was also very slow and uninformed. Their uniforms were also scruffy and they were all wearing their own jeans and takkies. The place itself is also in need of some TLC and attention to detail. The...

Checked in on a winter special to celebrate a special occasion. The hotel is a magnificent blend of history, beautiful gardens, with a little bit of retro flair thrown in just to keep things interesting. The prints in the rooms are exquisite, where one's initial reaction could be that the décor could be perceived as a bit over the top....

stayed here for a few nights. Great decor, comfy rooms. Loved the Cape Dutch building, nice and central between the vineyards and the great restaurants, bars and a bakery all on the same venue. Our favourite hotel in Cape town. City is only 15min away
