The Clarendon Fresnaye

« Back to Cape Town

Cradled along the slopes of Lions Head, in Cape Town's suburb of Fresnaye, the five-star Clarendon Fresnaye Boutique Hotel offers elegance and luxury in a central setting. Exclusive charm and gracious sophistication characterise this famous destination that once belonged to the Earl of Clarendon as well as the governor of The Cape.

The hotel is within walking distance to the Clifton beaches, ten minutes from the Cape Town city centre and the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront which is the departure point to Robben Island. Steeped in history, among the rolling lawns, sparkling swimming pools, this boutique hotel is a mini paradise among the bougainvillaea in a lavish garden. Dip your toes in either of the pools and feel the relaxation.

Guests staying at this particular Guest House in Cape Town enjoy the ocean, garden or mountain views from the comfort of their luxury bedroom. Meals are served in the elegant dining room overlooking the lush garden and swimming pool of this property. The carefully chosen furniture and a warm atmosphere create a sense of refined luxury.

This truly is an elegant guest house, we loved its unique charm. The dining room which overlooks the nice garden and swimming pool created a great dinning atmosphere for us. Perfect for honeymooners and couples.
