“Excellent place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

We spent ten nights at Kronendal in great comfort and looked after very well by by Maggie and Cecilia who were both very helpful The suite was spotlessly clean, serviced daily, well furnished and well equipped. Our terrace was ideal for breakfast and lunches, the pool and surrounding area perfect for a relaxing time. Kronendal is quietly situated in Hout Bay with easy access to Chapman's Peak, the Camps Bay area, and Constantia. One reason for being there was to cycle and there were superb routes to Nordhoek, Cape Point and in the other direction to Cape Town.

Room Tip: Talk to Maggie and tell her what you are looking for and she will do her best to help. We only saw o...

I stayed for 6 weeks and wanted to stay forever. This place makes the stress evaporate. The setting; with a panoramic view of Hout Bay and especially Chapmans Peak and the bay, is breathtaking. The friendliness of the owners,the quality of the food,the service was unbelievable and the privacy awesome. I'll chose this one again!

Room Tip: Any suite works perfect because they are all Awesome!

Nestled in a romantic well looked after park you will find a wonderful Cape Dutch Villa with everything a visitor to South Africa can be looking for. You are not in the City with all that buzz but not far away. Kronendal is the perfect place to relax body and soul. The beautiful pool area with the Emus quite close is a must for cooling down. The owners were so charming and warm hearted that one does not want to leave, We had nothing (!) to complain about and find this Hotel highly recommendable.

I spent almost a wekk here on a recent business trip. I always try, when travelling for work, to combine a bit of pleasure with the work. So by looking around, I find someplace nice to stay -- which you can do and still usually come in below the price of a good hotel. I got very lucky with this choice. Just a delightful place to stay.

When I travel I end up working a couple of time zones, which means which I get done with the day's work, there is still a couple of hours of work to catch-up and keep up with the folks in other time zones. The ability to sit at a table in a spacious and beautiful room and also have a decent internet connection means a lot to me when I am on the road for what feels like way to long. The suite had a separate bedroom, so when the work was done and I went to lie down and read, there was also a spacial separation to say, works over. In the morning, as I am a light breakfast eater, I just pulled out a yoghert and fruit I bought or cooked an egg on the burners, brewede some coffee, and sat on the private terrace reading the paper and enjoying the view of the mountains. In the evenings, a dip in the pool and some wonderful places to eat nearby -- range from cheap and funky to one of the top 10 restaurants in the country (The Greenhouse) according to Eat Out magazine -- well it is the way to travel. Maggie and Ulrich, ho own and run the guest house are great people, which only adds to the good karma.

You do need a car to stay there, but I was travelling around the Cape Town region for work so needed one anyway. That made it easy to get out for some fun ont he weekend and after my meetings -- everywhere I went was less than an hour away: Cape Point, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and Stellenbosch (where for a business lunch I was taken to Kleine Zalze - WOW another piece of luck, definately a must do. The Greenhouse, which is 15 minutes from Haut Bay, is excellent, but Kleine Zalze is phenomenal -- one of the best places I have ever eaten, so if you only do one, do it and as the setting is a winery, I do recommend lunch as the view is very pretty.)

By the way, ask Maggie for suggestions on where to eat. I would have missed the Dunes if I just relied on Trip Advisor top selections. But then I always like to ask locals as well as check the reviews. (The Dunes is on the beach with a view done the bay and into the ocean. Great place to watch sunset over fish and chips and a beer or wine and just enjoy the simple beauty of being.)

I stayed in the Cottage Suite for 2 weeks and I do not regret spending my time at Kronendal-Heritage. This place is highly recommendable as it combines every crucial ingredient to make your stay as convenient as possible. The service is friendly and do do not mind to consider every wish you have, even if it is pretty demanding. I was approached in a very warm and friendly way, so that I felt comfortable at once. It gave me the feeling of being home, although being far away that much. Everything is clean, and I really enjoyed the calm atmosphere. After waking up I took a short swim in the pool to start the day in a good manner. After this I just sat down and enjoyed the magnificent view on the mountain range and watched the Emus in the backyard just hanging out. Do not be afraid, they are surrounded by a huge fence ;) If there are any questions with regard to pleasant places, you can always approach the owners and they will give you a list of good places to eat, have some drinks or just to chill. So all in all, I will return to this place once more.

The personnel are unusually friendly and forestalling.
Each Suit is in good taste furnished, everything very clean.
Consents beds and calm sleep.
Big bathrooms and everyday new clean towels, also for the pool.
The pool is perfect for a swim before breakfast.
Wonderful view from the terrace.
Here is well-being-feel guaranteed.
