Cascades on the Promenade does not have indulgent luxuries such as a spa or sauna, preferring to focus on offering impeccable modern accommodation to guests wanting to explore Cape Town.

Situated in an attractive 100 year old renovated building on the bustling Atlantic Seaboard, the boutique hotel’s suave contemporary decor and urban location appeals to the savvy cosmopolitan traveller.

Rooms are amply equipped to deal with the needs of guests, and are packed with technological advancements such as an Apple Mac computer, air conditioning, free wireless internet, iPod docking station and CD player. A minibar and top-of-the-range coffee machine are on hand to provide fuel for the day’s activities, and in five of the rooms, drinks can be savoured on balconies.  In keeping with the international appeal of the hotel, a range of plug points are available to cater for most requirements.

Couples will love the opulence of the King-size beds, while travelling friends can choose a twin-bed configuration. The modern, spacious bathrooms have soothing rain showers, heated towel rails and wall-mounted hair dryers.

On the other side of a restful night’s sleep, guests head to Hotel Bistro to enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast or a beautifully presented breakfast treat from the menu. Shiny and modern, the bistro is just as chic as the hotel’s rooms, and a striking feature is the bright yellow chairs on the terrace, where the vibrant buzz of the promenade can be taken in. Later on in the day, the bistro serves a wide range of light lunches, while in the evenings the night chefs bring fine French dining to the table. If you prefer to take a meal in the comfort of your room, make use of the restaurant’s room service.

Throughout their stay, guests can be assured of 24 hour attendance at reception and the security of surveillance cameras in all public areas of the hotel. Other services on offer include baby-sitting, same-day laundry, a shuttle service and an expert shopping assistant.

The hotel is optimally positioned for an exploration of Cape Town. The Seapoint Promenade runs along a beautiful rocky coastline interspersed with white beaches, making it a scenic and very popular route for joggers, walkers and cyclists. Although the waters of the Atlantic Ocean are cold, swimmers can take a refreshing plunge at the safe Sea Point beach, or swim a few laps at the adjoining Olympic-size seawater swimming pool.

To see the best of what Cape Town has to offer, guests can take part in private guided tours, conducted by the qualified in-house tour guide.

The Peninsula tour takes you along the spectacular coastline, stopping off at Blue Flag beaches, the Boulders Beach penguin colony, the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and other attractions, with options to visit Table Mountain and the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.

Alternatively, take the guided tour to the picturesque and historic Cape Winelands, or embark on your own adventures at leisure.

Cape Town & Surrounds

Western Cape


Cape Town is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world. With dramatic mountains, a long stretch of Atlantic coastline and a picturesque working harbour, there are few cities in the world to rival “The Fairest Cape”, as explorer Sir Francis Drake described the place in 1580.

The city of Cape Town is regularly voted as one of the best tourist destinations (and cities to live in) in the world – and its Mediterranean climate, superb natural attractions, historic landmarks, fabulous restaurants and fun places to hang out offer all the ingredients for a top holiday destination.

Table Mountain dominates the city’s landscape and Table Mountain National Park is a national treasure and World Heritage Site.

The Cape Floristic Kingdom is known for its incredible botanical heritage and the Table Mountain National Park has more floral species than the British Isles. Stopping to smell the fynbos has an altogether new meaning in this part of the world.

Robben Island is another World Heritage Site worth visiting. Struggle heroes such as Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada and many others were incarcerated here during apartheid and taking the Robben Island Tour is a must on any trip to Cape Town.

The city is loosely divided by Table Mountain into four sections: Cape Town Central, Cape Town South, Cape Town North and Cape Town East.

Cape Town Central incorporates the city centre, the V&A Waterfront, Green Point, Mouille Point, Sea Point, Camps Bay and Hout Bay. There are loads of things on offer in this part of the world, so it’s a good idea to focus on the field of interest/activities that excite you and take it from there.

A trip to the top of Table Mountain is an absolute must (especially if you’ve never done it before). The views on a clear day will give you a clear perspective of the gorgeous city below and you can see as far as Robben Island and beyond.

If history is your thing, there are numerous museums and attractions close to the city centre. The Castle of Good Hope was built between 1666 and 1679 and is the oldest building in South Africa. It is a good place to start your tour of the city, which incorporates historic attractions such as the Bo-Kaap Museum, the District Six Museum, The Company’s Garden, City Hall and the Grand Parade, among many other notable historic attractions.

For shopping and entertainment, the V&A Waterfront is the epicentre of Cape Town and attracts high numbers of international tourists daily. Long Street is a good place to hang out for restaurants, bars and nightlife and Camps Bay is the place to see and be seen around cocktail hour.

The drive along Chapman’s Peak is one of the most scenic drives in the world but you need to do your homework as the route is periodically closed. Mariner’s Wharf in Hout Bay is another great place to visit, with its fun restaurants, great beaches and perfect views.

Cape Town South stretches from Noordhoek to Observatory and incorporates some of Cape Town’s most popular suburbs, including Constantia, Fish Hoek, Rondebosch, Simon’s Town and Muizenberg, to mention just a few.

Constantia is popular for its wonderful restaurants and wine estates and the Constantia Wine Route is a big attraction for foodies and wine-lovers. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens offers hectares of greenery and regular concerts in the warm summer months. There are also various hiking trails on offer.

Take a day trip to Simon’s Town and make sure you visit the statue of Just Nuisance, as well as the scenic Boulders Beach. Noordhoek is a great place for riding horses on the beach and the restaurants are very family friendly. For fresh fish and laid-back vibes, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg are the business. Fish Hoek is popular for seaside activities and antique shops and is a real favourite.

Cape Town North incorporates the Cape Town International Airport, Parow, Milnerton, Durbanville, Table View, as well as Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand. The north is a developed business centre that continues to grow rapidly. For chill-out time, Bloubergstrand and Melkbosstrand are popular for walks on the beach and outdoor sports.  Shoppers will enjoy Century City and Canal Walk, and for those who love a tipple or two, The Durbanville Wine Route also falls into the northern region.

Cape Town East is made up of Gordon’s Bay, Somerset West, Strand, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Khayelitsha, Gugulethu, Eersterivier, Macassar and Strandfontein. The region is pretty spectacular as the small coastal towns sit below the imposing Hottentots Holland Mountains and there are fantastic beaches such as Bikini Beach, Strand Beach and Kogel Bay. Here you’ll also find the Helderberg Nature Reserve, Wolfgat Nature Reserve and Edith Stephens Wetland Park.

Look out for

Scenic Cape Point with its sheer cliffs, rugged landscapes, fauna, flora and bold ocean views.

A cable-car trip up Table Mountain to get the view of the incredible landscape of the city. If you’ve done the touristy cable-car thing then take one of the many mountain trails.

V&A Waterfront – spend time enjoying all the facilities at the V&A Waterfront, including the abundance of shopping and restaurant venues. For children, The Two Oceans Aquarium is a winner.

The magnificent beaches of Clifton, Muizenberg, Hout Bay, Bloubergstrand. You are spoilt for choice in and around the Mother City.

Historical sites are a must – including Robben Island, the Castle of Good Hope, the District Six Museum and Bo-Kaap.

Long Street by night. Enjoy the friendly fun vibes of this stretch of tarmac as it comes to life when the sun goes down.

While away the hours at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, the green lung of the city. Look out for the schedule of summer concerts.

Visit the Constantia Wine Route for a touch of history and some of the country’s finest wines and restaurants that continually make it onto the best-of lists.

Drive along the southern coastline and visit places such as Noordhoek, Scarborough, Simon’s Town, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg. Stop off at Kalk Bay for fresh fish at the harbour.
