The Townhouse Hotel is located in the heart of South Africa’s Mother City of Cape Town on a site just off the original Dutch East India Company Gardens, vital provisioning centre and watering place for ships entering the bay from the mid 1600’s, when the settlements now- reclaimed shoreline was but a few hundred meters from the hotel’s front entrance.
Set in a tranquil corner of what is today the uptown commercial district, in the heart of the city, the hotel overlooks Mostert Square, with the original Slave Lodge and Cultural History museum),the Groote Kerk, St Georges Cathedral, oak-lined Government Avenue and Parliamentary complex just beyond.
A favourite stay-over in the city for decades, the Hotel has retained its essentially intimate character. Despite recent updates to a 21st Century, luxury 4-star establishment, it is still noted for its relaxed, easy-come-and go atmosphere, individualised attention, and for providing what many repeat guests have called “Cape Town’s Best Good Night’s Sleep.”
Thoughtfully designed, light and ergonomic comfort, the Hotel’s 106 accommodations (from compact single rooms, ideal for quick over-nighting, to deluxe en suites with separate showers, perfect for more settled stays) offer city-smart contemporary styling in gentle tones, textures and furnishings. Features such as luxury in-room baths in our junior suites, free WIFI wireless internet access, or a batch of freshly baked cookies with your self-cater coffee facilities are but small examples of what makes a Townhouse stay that much more ‘home-from-home’.
The hotel’s well-established dining tradition continues at our newest addition to the hotel, the beautiful Trees restaurant, offering a delightful breakfast with views of the city during the day, and an intimate fireside setting for gourmet dinners from executive chef Stefan, who delights with an exciting classic and fusion menu of local flavours and vintages from our cellars. Casual refreshment, light meals snacks coffee, patisserie and cocktails are also served in our trendy Lounge just off the hotel entrance – a popular meeting place for local and visiting guests.
