I've visited this awesome resort for the first time and have been truly impressed by the beauty of the estate and the hospitality of its hosts. I will certainly come back and stay a bit longer next time.

Loft did not smell fresh, a bit stale. Bathroom was not crisp and clean with mould in corners of the shower which was hardly having water pressure so you need to run to get wet. Lampshades were broken, tv had almost no channels and the ones that did work had bad reception. DVD player not working at all, Wifi reception...

Stumbled across this place when trying to find accommodation for the Cape Argus week and chose it based on the reviews it has already received. They were not wrong. A fabulous property nested away in the hills above Hout Bay, it is a very sympathetic conversion of a set of traditional estate buildings that both preserves the character of the...

We arrived without a reservation and we were greeted perfectly. We stayed in the 'loft' which was beautiful..big living area with a luxury bedroom and bathroom all open plan. We had a huge private sun terrace…all was fab. The same staff served us a lovely breakfast each morning. We were greeted each time we came back by the 2 resident...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Kronendal Heritage Estate. We, a family of five, stayed here for 5 nights in December. Beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Rooms were clean, large and well decorated. The staff, especially Cecilia, and the owners were very friendly and service was impeccable. Houtbay is a nice place to stay, close to Cape Town...

This place is a true escape from stress and big city life... We stayed in the loft-suite with our own big terrass where kind Cecilia served our breakfast. The pool area is absolutely fantastic. The only negative point is that it is pretty far from central Hout Bay/ harbour.

My wife and I just stayed here for only two nights on the last days of our vacation. It is absolutely wonderful. We really just stayed on property and didn't go anywhere since we had done everything touristy earlier in the trip. We ordered in food from Home Hero's that will collect food from different restaurants in the area and...

We stayed at Kronendal for 10 days; this was our first trip to South Africa, and we wanted to stay in a place with 'character' rather than a standardised hotel chain where the rooms look identical across the globe. We arrived with relatively high expectations, based on the beautiful pictures. However, the beauty of the property and the suite (all...

We spent ten nights at Kronendal in great comfort and looked after very well by by Maggie and Cecilia who were both very helpful The suite was spotlessly clean, serviced daily, well furnished and well equipped. Our terrace was ideal for breakfast and lunches, the pool and surrounding area perfect for a relaxing time. Kronendal is quietly situated in Hout...

I stayed for 6 weeks and wanted to stay forever. This place makes the stress evaporate. The setting; with a panoramic view of Hout Bay and especially Chapmans Peak and the bay, is breathtaking. The friendliness of the owners,the quality of the food,the service was unbelievable and the privacy awesome. I'll chose this one again!

Thank antonio N

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This hidden gem is nestled in the lush vegetation of a romantic park-like garden with breathtaking views of the Cape mountains. At Kronendal Heritage, you can indulge in daydreams next to the pool, smell the passionate fragrances of lavender, hibiscus and frangipani in the lovingly kept garden or watch the local Emus strut around the Country Estate.Each of Kronendal's five luxurious suites are - depending on size - equipped with separate lounge and bedroom and a spacious private terrace, furnished with antiques, original art and carefully selected accessories. Enjoy the untouchable privacy the lush interiors of the roomy suites have to offer. Kronendal Heritage is the perfect place for discerning guests looking for exclusive privacy. It is far enough from the tourist mass attractions to offer complete relaxation, yet near enough to all the local hot spots such as the beach, the Hout Bay harbour, the village with its shops and restaurants, and of course the scenic Chapman's Peak Drive. You won't believe you're only 20 minutes from Cape Town! ... more   less
