We recently took advantage of the Alphen Hotel's Winter Special, driving only 15 minutes from our house to escape to this beautiful character hotel nestled in Constantia. Although we were so close to home it felt as if we'd been transported to another world. Our package included a wine pairing dinner in the Five Rooms restaurant, breakfast in the wonderful La Belle deli and an overnight stay in a fabulous suite in the old part of the hotel. The house where are room was located was 300 years old and steeped in character and charm. The room was very large, luxurious and immaculate with some lovely quirky touches and the bathroom en-suite was large, modern and fresh, even offering a bath-menu! The Alphen Hotel is so gracious, so charming and just groaning with history and character, there's something so amazing about sleeping in a place where history was made. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. The staff were very attentive and terribly professional. A live band in the Five Rooms lounge completed a very enjoyable evening. I'd highly recommend this lovely hotel both to international travellers and to locals who just want to escape from reality for a night. The Rose Bar overlooking the pool and garden is quite the place to socialise and enjoy lively gin 'n tonics so there's something for everyone.
