Nestled at the foot of Table Mountain, with unparalleled views of Lion’s Head, Welgelegen is a boutique hotel that oozes Cape charm. The luxurious space was converted into fourteen ensuite rooms from two quaint Victorian houses built in 1890. Today, the two heritage homes are linked by a shady inner courtyard and a plunge pool that provides welcome respite during the heat of the day.  

Located just a short walk away from the vibe of Kloof Street and a few minutes drive from the Table Mountain Cableway, Camps Bay, and the V&A Waterfront, Welgelegen Boutique Guesthouse is a sanctuary in the Mother City.

Experience & Activities    

Welgelegen Boutique Guesthouse serves as the ideal base to explore Cape Town. Departing from the guesthouse, guests can opt-in for day tours and experiences from curated wine and city tours, a full-day road trip exploring the peninsula, and the chance to ascend Table Mountain. 

Guests can retreat to the pool for quiet days to soak up the sun. The guesthouse offers a complimentary port in the evening, and guests can make themselves at home in the lounge. For those wishing to immerse themselves in holiday mode, Welgelegen has a treatment room with massages, manicures, and other therapies on offer; booking in advance is essential. 


The guesthouse boasts 14 ensuite rooms, a dining area, lounge, swimming pool, and courtyard connecting two Victorian-era homes, Hofmeyr & Stephen House.
