Discover the Charms of Welgelegen House: Your Cape Town Retreat

Welgelegen House stands as a sanctuary amidst the vibrant energy of Cape Town, a hidden gem nestled at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain. With its timeless Cape charm and unparalleled hospitality, Welgelegen House invites you to experience the essence of this vibrant city in a truly exceptional way.

Once two separate family homes, Welgelegen House has been thoughtfully transformed into a "home away from home" within the city. A popular establishment offering an intimate and welcoming atmosphere that resonates with the warmth of Cape Town's character. 

The property comprises two stunning Victorian houses, seamlessly connected by a serene inner courtyard adorned with lush foliage, inviting you to unwind and escape the city's hustle and bustle. To add to the tranquillity, a refreshing plunge pool beckons, offering respite from the warm Cape days.

Welgelegen House: A Variety of Accommodations

At Welgelegen House, your comfort is paramount. Choose from a range of fourteen exquisitely appointed en-suite rooms that cater to your preferences:

  • Superior Room: Spacious rooms with extra-length king-size beds (convertible into twins), en-suite bathrooms, satellite television, and more.
  • Standard Room: Cozy rooms with queen-size beds, en-suite bathrooms, and all the amenities you need.
  • Superior Family Room: Perfect for families, these rooms offer extra-length king-size beds (convertible into twins), en-suite bathrooms, and inter-leading rooms for added convenience.
  • Mini Room: A budget-friendly option with all the necessary comforts for a pleasant stay.


Welgelegen House is not just an accommodation; it's a testament to Cape Town's rich history and unique character. Originally serving as two distinct family homes, the property has a fascinating past that includes being an orphanage for Jewish children and providing homes for separate families.
