I'm enquiring about: Welgelegen


Cape Town, South Africa

Welgelegen means ‘well located’ in Dutch, and this place is. It stands in a leafy cul-de-sac on the border of Gardens, an old established area at the foot of Table Mountain, and the Kloof area of Cape Town. You are just a couple of minutes walk from the Kloof Street cafés and bistros, and a similar distance from the museums and historic buildings surrounding Company Gardens.

Welgelegen occupies two large Edwardian houses, with a delightful cobbled courtyard in between.  The courtyard has a plunge pool and is a pleasant place to enjoy a hearty morning breakfast, spend the afternoon on a lounger, or sip a drink in the evening.

The accent throughout is on stylish design; the previous owner was an interior decorator. The new owner, a young Englishwoman, Fiona Evans, has added a treatment room to provide yet more pampering. She has a strong commitment to personal service, which helps to create a homely feeling at Welgelegen.


There are eight superior rooms, and four deluxe, all with air-conditioning, satellite television, internet connection, minibar, bath robes and so forth.

Accommodation Reviews

You couldn’t ask for a better welcome, we arrived early and  were given coffee and a snack. All the staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The hot water bottles were a bonus.
