Only two hours’ drive from Cape Town, the hotel offers air-conditioned rooms, a swimming pool and secure parking.

We are also situated within walking distance from all local restaurants.

                      It was an overnight stay and that is all it is good for. Rooms are grubby, linen doesn't look clean, breakfast is a disaster from a service point of view. (one young lady to look after everybody, not good enough) Parking, although advertised is inadequate. This hotel used to have class when it was Strassbergers. Now it is just another room!

                      Very central, yet quiet, helpful staff, the bedroom was larger than I expected, only the "parking on premises" was charged at an extra R50, which was not advertised, and should be. I would still recommend it.

                      Clanwilliam Hotel was friendly, breakfast good, and the room comfortable. The pool was great in the 36 degrees, and the shower was huge and had a handgrip. The annual lantern festival run by UCT and Magnet Theatre was fabulous!
