This elegant country hotel, set on a working wine farm, is a quietly luxurious base in the gorgeous Constantia wine region, and from which to explore the city.

The late 17th-century Cape Dutch building (Steenberg is one of the original wine farms in the valley) evokes an authentic sense of history, while an award-winning golf course, bevy of beautiful restaurants and bars, and mini-spa makes any stay complete.

Discover Steenberg’s award-winning wines at the modern tasting centre, before dinner at Tryn, or lighter fare at Bistro Sixteen82.

The hotel offers a daily complimentary shuttle service to the V&A Waterfront.

Surrounding area

Backed by mountains and surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens and vineyards, the hotel is part of the access-controlled Steenberg Estate, which includes exclusive private residences, an 18-hole golf course, winery and tasting centre. It’s quiet, private and peaceful.
