The Cellars-Hohenort
Cape Town

Over nine acres of manicured gardens surround The Cellars-Hohenort, set outside Cape Town in the historic Constantia Valley. Owner Liz McGrath has spent more than two decades creating the perfect retreat with exquisite attention to detail evident in every area from the charming welcome to the renowned spa. Built in the elegant Cape Dutch style and looking over scenic vineyards (Constantia being the oldest wine-growing region in the southern hemisphere), The Cellars-Hohenhort is a gracious homage to the country’s past, deeply tranquil yet only a 15-minute drive from the bustle city centre.

Nature abounds here – discover the ‘Camphor Walk’ through the 300-year-old Camphor trees, some of the oldest trees in Cape Town and linger in the rose garden taking in the panoramic views.

Two award-winning dining experiences are overseen by the city’s only Relais & Châteaux Grand Chef, Peter Tempelhoff. Greenhouse offers a modern interpretation of South Africa’s cuisine and The Conservatory, a name that conjures up hazy colonial afternoon teas, serves simple but refined fare personally chosen by owner – a typically intimate touch.

Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
