Hotel on the Promenade

A fine boutique hotel situated along the Atlantic Seaboard in Seapoint, Cape Town. The concept of this eight room city hotel is to offer “young of heart” travelers an ideal base from where to explore Cape Town and surroundings. The ideal guest for Cascades on the Promenade is the well informed traveler who, when visiting Cape Town, is not per se interested in spending money here on superfluous luxuries as a swimming pool, a spa or large opulent lounge facilities.

Our traveler is interested and anxious to discover Cape Town for what it is… a bustling, vibrant and incredibly beautiful city, brimming with activities and diversity. Our traveler has little time to lose here and is not immediately in the mood to linger at the side of a pool. He wants to get up and about after a good nights rest in a perfectly equipped and soft furnished room.

His breakfast awaits him in the cozy Hotel Bistro or outside on the terrace, where he already mingles with he local regulars. The hotel is superbly positioned for immediate action, whether that is a vigorous jog along Cape Town’s magnificent Seaboard… right here on our doorstep… a two minute walk to the Olympic size, open air, sea side swimming pool or an even shorter stroll to the Main Road to catch a ride to Table Mountain, the Clifton or Camps Bay Beaches or the V&A Waterfront.

The hotel is housed in a Cape Dutch style, 100 year old heritage building. An extensive renovation has transformed the original structure into a very modern, trendy place with a distinct international flair. Our guest will immediately recognize the spot as a trendsetter, definitely on par with other leading small design hotels sprinkled around the larger cities of Europe or the States.

The rooms are compact but they are complete. The latest on offer in hotel technology has been incorporated in the design and furnishings. Large walk-in rain showers with thermostatic taps and heated towel rails. State of the art 40″ LED TV screens make for ideal in-room entertainment.

Video-on-demand, international plugs, telephone, electronic safe, a good functioning climate control system and WiFi are hotel standards to be expected. In addition, every room at Cascades on the Promenade has it’s own Apple Mac computer with free internet access, a Bose i-pod docking station, CD player, mini bar and a Nespresso Coffee machine. All Deluxe rooms have an outside balcony with seating arrangement. The Standard rooms have glass doors to the outside but no outside seating arrangement. Nighttime security is provided directly to the guest through automated roller shutters in the rooms and in general through a 24-hour attendance at reception and closed circuit cameras in the public area’s.
