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...
A thorough renovation has lifted this mid-level city hotel into a whole new category. Five-star service, complimentary wi-fi and shuttles to the Pretoria and Hatfield Gautrain stations, extensive dining options and well-appointed rooms...
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...

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...

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.
Pleasant rooms with sea views.
Old Mill Guest House & Restaurant
This cute whitewashed cottage complex is behind the antiques/craft shop and has a pleasant cafe of the same name. Guests choose from a variety of tidy cottages.
This upmarket boutique hotel is filled with smart rooms of the ‘heavy drapes and floral furnishing’ variety (although the jute carpet is showing some wear), around a pretty paved and green courtyard area.
Over-the-top, colonial-style rooms, heavy on the velour furnishings but quite luxurious.
Bang in the middle of town, this attractive old-style country hotel with spacious, understated rooms is refreshingly cool inside and has an inviting appeal. The attached Die Kolonie Restaurant serves a range of local and international dishes.
Sea Point, Camps Bay & Hout Bay
The Primi Seacastle overlooks the beach at Camps Bay.
Quarry Lake Inn
Built next to a tranquil artificial lake north of the city centre, Quarry Lake is a comfortable if fairly bland development...
The Dullstroom Inn
On the northwest edge of town, this corrugated-iron-roof inn dates back to the early 20th century...
