Day 1 - 5

More Quarters Hotel - Cape Town (4-Nights)

More Quarters' collection of converted heritage townhouses and Redcliffe House offer you all the spoils of five-star hospitality and the privacy of individual accommodations. With their entrances onto a cobbled lane adjoining the main hotel, they create the feel of a secluded quarter in the Cape Town suburb of Gardens.

Each of the 27 Rooms at More Quarters has been individually designed to give families, couples, honeymooners, and those taking some time for themselves their own living spaces. The Rooms' look and feel is understatedly polished, with a retro edge, and you can always expect fresh coffee and flowers, crisp linen, luxurious bath products, and all of the conveniences you might need.

Each of our 23 Luxury Rooms has a character and appeal of its own – no one better than the last. All feature a spacious bedroom, en-suite bathroom, TV lounge, and a handy little kitchenette. The four Family Rooms (for groups of friends, too) each include a second en-suite bedroom. When laid out for children – with their own amenities, toys and treats – it'll have them settled in no time!

More Quarter's Redcliffe House

The best way to experience a city? Live like the locals. Minutes from Cape Town’s beaches, cafes, boutiques and galleries, you will find no better place to base yourself and your family, or group of friends than at More Quarters’ Redcliffe House. The house offers you all the spoils of five-star hospitality and the privacy of your own city retreat.

This exclusive heritage house, with four en-suite bedrooms, has plenty of space for everyone and invites easy relaxation. It’s just the setting for you to take up sun loungers in view of the mountains or cosy around the sitting room fireplace; to cook together in the kitchen, or have the day off and enlist a private chef. The long dining table is sure to host gatherings for even-longer lunches.

Beyond the Hotel

From your home for the holiday, it is for you to decide how much or little to do… The Hotel Concierge is always available to assist and More Quarters is an ideal base from which to explore the city, surrounding beaches, mountains, and winelands… And to come back to, where you can kick off your shoes and flop on the couch.

Cape Winelands

Resting at the foot of the Boland Mountains, the Cape Winelands is renowned for producing some of the world’s finest wines. The breathtakingly beautiful landscape boasts incredible mountain scenery and numerous luxury wine farms laden with vineyards stretching across lush fertile valleys. Visitors can look forward to a variety of wonderful activities including: exploring a collection of historic little hamlets and towns dotting the countryside, sampling a wide selection of world-class wine at a historic Cape Dutch farmstead as well as many other wine estates; and enjoying a network of hiking and biking trails traversing the picturesque landscape. While the wine is undoubtedly the highlight of the region, visitors can also enjoy a meal at some of the country’s best restaurants offering delicious food and wine pairings.

Cape Point

Cape Point is a spectacular sight, covered in endemic fynbos and home to breathtaking bays, beaches and rolling green hills and valleys, just 60km outside of Cape Town. Cape Point falls within the Cape Floral Region, a World Heritage Site. The Cape Floral Region is one of the richest areas for plants in the world – it is home to nearly 20% of Africa’s flora. Cape Point is open daily and is a must-see.

Table Mountain

Without a doubt it is Table Mountain that makes Cape Town the unique city it is. Rising up over 1000m above sea level, it is the icon that makes Cape Town instantly recognizable. It is a symbol, a playground, a spiritual retreat and a big draw card for tourists. So intertwined with the identity of Cape Town is Table Mountain that a visit to the city isn’t complete without having walked or taken the cable car to the top.
