The Vineyard hotel and Spa languishes in six acres of attractive landscaped parkland on the banks of the Liesbeek River. There are over 200 years of history within its walls, dating back to the British occupation of the Cape.
Located in the lush leafy suburb of Newlands, the hotel is within walking distance of the exclusive Cavendish Shopping Centre. Furthermore, it is just 15 minutes away from the City Centre and the popular Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. And being only 5 minutes from the symposium venue at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens makes it the ideal symposium hotel.
The 4* Vineyard hotel offers its guests two swimming pools – one outdoor, surrounded by loungers and one heated indoor pool. The Vineyard Hotel has made a commitment to “living green” and has implemented environmental and social responsible decision-making to ensure that sustainable development principles are incorporated throughout the hotel.
Overlooking shady courtyard gardens, the Courtyard rooms have a bathroom with separate shower and bath and are furnished in contemporary style, some with original Cape-style wood furniture. Each room comes equipped with a flat screen TV offering satellite channels, hairdryer, Nespresso coffee station, complimentary refreshments, safe, heating and cooling. Disabled access rooms are available on request.
Available at the hotel:
Banyan Tree Resorts’ Angsana Spa is located on the property and offers therapeutic massages, facials and signature treatments.
There is a well-established fitness centre, overseen by a team of professional trainers, available to hotel guests. Otherwise, for those wanting something a little more relaxing, the wellness studio offers hatha and vinyasa yoga three days a week.
Guided garden tours hosted by a well-known local horticulturalist are offered to showcase the abundant indigenous flora and fauna on the property.
Available close to the hotel:
Cavendish Square is within walking distance of the hotel, offering a large selection of shops, restaurant and entertainment facilities. Newlands Cricket and rugby stadiums are both situated within walking distance of the hotel and host a variety of seasonal local, international and test fixtures. The Montabello Design Centre, located within walking distance of the hotel, is synonymous with some of the roots of Cape art and design. It houses fine art, ceramic, jewellery, craft and other working studios as well as a restaurant and nursery where locally made art, crafts and gifts are for sale.
