Although set amidst its own golf course, Steenberg could not be further from the traditional image of a golf resort. For a start, it is set across a number of 17th century buildings which were built within 30 years of the settlement of the Cape, and which have been declared a National Monument. The rooms acknowledge this heritage, with wonderful, period wooden furniture, but this is married with modern furnishings and colours, to create a stylish, but classic effect. The grounds are beautiful, a pleasure to stroll around, and the restaurant, Catharina’s, is excellent and does a superb Sunday buffet lunch accompanied by jazz musicians. Steenberg also produce their own wine from the estate, which is very good. Steenberg is the only of our featured Winelands hotels in Constantia, the very upmarket suburb of Cape Town located on the opposite side of Table Mountain from downtown. It makes it well placed for the attractions of the Cape, the wine estates and shops of Constantia, and also for the estates deeper into the Winelands.
