Excellent experience from check-in to check-out. Will definately return. La Belle is a great for (late) breakfast and the Five Rooms Restaurant is a must! Our room was fantastic with his and hers bathrooms and a lovely comfy bed.

The Alphen Boutique Hotel exudes luxury and style. Staff happily go the extra mile to meet any need the guest may have. The food is utterly delicious, but when my 4-year old (who does not yet have epicurean tastes) asked for plain fettuccine with ketchup, the chef was willing to oblige. The rooms are beautifully decorated, and the size and...

We stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Great rooms, staff, food, location etc. To have two bathrooms per room was great luxury! We had dinner 3 times in La Belle's so my husband didnot have to drive anymore. Even 3 night in a row we still enjoyed the food.

The Alphen is based in Constantia suburbs of Cape Town. Not on the beach, but this place is a little bit of heaven away from the busy Atlantic Seaboard. The service is outstanding and the rooms are fantastic. It has the added benefit of having the restaurant 5 rooms attached which services excellent food in one of, funny enough, 5...

What a marvelous experience. Beautiful garden setting, scrumptious lunch, modern bar with great service and superb wines! I would strongly recommend Alpena as a casual Saturday or Sunday lunch venue. Awesome all round experience! The buffet style make-your-own hamburgers were delicious and a real treat to enjoy in this beautiful setting.
