Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel Is Divine

Kudos to the human who named this hotel, because while many imitate Cape Dutch style, few get it so spot-on as this venue.

The Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel has a smart online presence that says a lot. Around for over 100 years, they call their rooms deluxe, and they actually are. They note that their gardens are manicured and leafy, and they really are a cut above. They also give off a sense of luxury without the snobbishness – here you really do feel at home – and remarkably live up to that too.

Even for the habitual high-end traveler, the Kleinkaap will feel like you just came home to mom… after she won the lotto! Hospitality everywhere in the world is intensely rated by the industry and patrons alike, from B&Bs through to the very biggest and poshest hotels. The Kleinkaap is rated a 4-star hotel, but that doesn’t really tell the whole story. 

They’re a 4-star, easily able to collect a fifth should they wish, rather than a lesser offering trying to overreach its abilities. The stats don’t lie – over 900 Google reviews by visitors rank them right at the top, and the hotel has been voted the 17th best of the top 25 hotels in the country. Wragtig Centurion….. you’re shining.

Winner of the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards in 2016, the Kleinkaap has also scooped Best Luxury Boutique Hotel of the Year in Gauteng, SA, in the 2019 Luxury Travel Guide (LTG) Awards. Beautiful and elegant, yet homely – a remarkable achievement as any regular traveler will tell you – this is an honestly fantastic venue for conferences and weddings. A great hotel is not about how much money you throw at it – anyone with the cash can do that. A really welcoming and comfy hotel is an eclectic mix of so many components, all of which need care and attention to create the whole experience.

Guys about to pop the big question can pretty much guarantee success by taking your lady here for the weekend. Brides shopping for a wedding venue should also absolutely have the Kleinkaap on their list of possibilities. The hotel’s wedding facilities – the bespoke Rust-en-Vrede or stylish Goedehoop – come replete will all jingles and bells, on-site wedding planners, specialised caterers – the list goes on. Clearly not on their first attempt at hosting weddings, if ensuring that “everything goes well” is high on your priority list ladies, look no further. For up to 400 guests, with a wonderful sense of splendour, the Kleinkaap will make your dreams real.

Ditto the business-minded patron, looking for a venue for some serious biz with visitors or colleagues. The Kleinkaap says that its “specialities” are conferences and weddings. Unlike every other venue that thinks “Hey – we can do that and make some money,” here they bring legitimate meaning to the term “specialise.” Business gatherings here are a pleasure, elegant, on point, catered and facilitated. There’s a reason they’re ranked so highly – here you’ll feel like you’re getting more than what you paid for. 

The hotel takes appointments to view the facilities ahead of time, except on Sundays. Conferences here are a delight of cutting edge tech and upmarket attention. The Kleinkaap is modern yet steeped in elegance, a stone’s throw from Centurion Mall, and one of the truly deluxe venues that make Pretoria the gem it is.
