Welgelegen – An urban sanctuary in the heart of Cape Town
Welgelegen is an urban sanctuary that offers so much more than just accommodation. The 13 individually styled en-suite bedrooms provide a quiet luxury that embodies the hotel. Each member of staff will go above and beyond, nurturing Africa-Time and ensuring an unforgettable Cape Town experience. You will be sent on excursions that are off the beaten track, exploring the essence of what the city’s music, art, food, culture and nature have to offer.
A spacious high-ceilinged sitting room and a cozy, rich library adjoin a grand breakfast room, all filled with contemporary furnishings and eclectic African art. The breakfast room opens out to a cobbled courtyard enclosed by ivy-draped walls that dips into a revitalising plunge pool. Perfect for one to temper the sultry South African sun. The essential oils burn, the hearty African music resonates and the old Victorian build lends its old soul. One cannot help but feel at home, away from one’s own. Welgelegen is truly a sanctuary in the heart of town.
