Luxury Travel Review


The living area of our Cape Colonial Suite

We recently revisited the Steenberg Hotel where we stayed at the Cape Colonial Suite, one of the property’s premier accommodations. In spite of the modest name, the 166 square meter $2.5 million area was more like a private one bedroom villa than a suite. One of three Heritage Suites set within the winery at the foot of the Steenberg Mountains, the Cape Colonial Suite offered the many advantages of a hotel stay plus the privacy of a villa coupled with added services and amenities.

“We find that discerning travelers are asking more often for facilities that are a ‘home away from home.’  So rather than expanding in number of suites, we felt we would serve our market better by having fewer suites that are more luxurious, spacious, and private,” said Gaby Gramm, general manager of the Steenberg Hotel.

We enjoyed the suite’s many amenities: Entrance Lobby, air-conditioning, under floor heating, working fireplace, complimentary refreshment bar, complimentary laundry service, complimentary Wi-Fi and Internet service, personal fax and copying facilities, PC data and power outlets, extra large safe for laptops, audio entertainment system, iPod station, large work desk, original artwork, three TVs, flat screen TV in bedroom Frette and Egyptian linen, duvet, extra long and wide king bed, bathrobes, luxuriously large bathroom with separate tub, walk in shower, and professional hairdryer.
