Hobbit Boutique Hotel
This charming Victorian guesthouse, comprising two 1921 houses, is popular with visiting dignitaries, but also perfect for literati and romantic types. The cottage-style bedrooms have painted bathtubs, plus a couple of teddy bears apiece...
The Farmhouse Hotel
Langebaan’s only hotel sits on a hill overlooking the bay with lovely sunset views. Rooms are large, with country decor and their own fireplaces...
Philae Hotel Aswan
This well-established hotel has had a serious revamp, and it is now by far the best midrange hotel in town. The Egyptian owner returned from Germany and went on a shopping spree in Cairo to furbish her hotel...
The Egypt single-handedly fills a desperate need for decent midrange digs. A noticeable step up from the budget choices, it’s set in a renovated 100-year-old Italian building right on the Corniche...
Jaz Almaza Beach Resort
Zāwiyat ‘Āʼilat Nūḩ
On a remote stretch of seafront 37km east of town, this resort includes five luxury hotels; see the website for info specific to each one. All share a beachfront, and guests can use facilities at any of them, including sampling the tasty buffets...

Dutch Manor Antique Hotel
City Bowl, Bo-Kaap & De Waterkant
Four poster beds, giant armoires and creaking floorboards lend terrific atmosphere to this six room property crafted from a 1812 building. Although it overlooks busy Buitengracht the noise is largely kept at bay thanks to modern renovations...
Le Duc De Praslin
This little island of subdued glamour, a coco fesse throw from the beach, ranks as one of the most solid options on Praslin...
Crane's Nest Guest House @ 212
The Crane (and her two nearby sister properties) is our favourite place to stay in Pretoria, with easy access to the bird sanctuary across the road...
Le Must River Residence
Owned by Neil Stemmet, author of the cookbook Salt and Pepper, this elegant riverside getaway has 11 sumptuous, African-themed rooms with antique furnishings and crisp white linen...
Behind the classically restored facades of these Karoo-style cottages are contemporary creature comforts...

The friendly Nakhil is a cosy compromise for those who want hotel comforts without the crowds...
Mauritius' oldest resort shares the same management as Sugar Beach next door, but there's a completely different feel here...
Ballinderry The Robertson Guest House
This modern, colourful boutique guesthouse is impeccable, thanks to hosts Luc and Hilde. A champagne breakfast is served, as is dinner on request, and Dutch, French and German are spoken...
Gibela Backpackers Lodge Durban
If this hostel (a tastefully converted 1950s Tuscan-style home) were a B&B, it would be described as ‘boutique’. One of Durban’s best hostels, it has sparkling surfaces and rooms neat enough to pass an army major’s inspection...
In a large old house, this lively hostel has a bar, ostrich braais and free ostrich-egg breakfasts (in season, you’ll be given an egg – cook it any way you please)...
The owners of this stylish suburban hostel are keen to organise tours of the district. The recreation area has satellite TV and a pool table.
This excellent, five-star budget option, YHA-affiliated and award-winning, is owner-run and it shows. There’s a great bar area with satellite TV, yet you can still find peace and quiet in the large grounds.
Away With The Fairies
Location isn’t everything – but it’s just one of the distinguishing features of this delightful backpackers...
Aire Del Mar Guesthouse
A friendly place offering a good range of prices, including basic self-catering units (for two R520). The rooms have panoramic sea views out to Dyer Island.
