21 Nettleton

An exceptional hotel

21 Nettleton offers a truly opulent and exclusive experience and is an ideal choice if you're looking for a romantic getaway à deux.

Located in Clifton, Cape Town's most desirable neighbourhood, the hotel boasts unrivalled elevated views of the dramatic craggy coastline, the Twelve Apostles, and Atlantic Ocean as it rolls up over the stunning Clifton beaches.

Striking the fine balance between lavish and intimate, the mansion consists of just three sumptuous suites and a spectacular 250 square metre Presidential penthouse, each unique in style and décor. With high ceilings, expansive rooms, and furnished with a collection of antiques and one-off pieces of art, attention has been paid to every last detail. 

The King and Queen suites are on the same floor, with a balcony that can be separated or opened up to a shared space if you take both rooms. The stunning penthouse takes up the entire top floor, with a generous sitting area, balcony with dining table and two bathrooms.

With an elegant atmosphere and aesthetic, the hotel is best suited to adults seeking a peaceful retreat (children under the age of 13 years are not accepted).

Boutique guest home and beautiful location

San Francisco, California

This establishment is a small, boutique, upscale property which is located on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. The view and sunsets are gorgeous. All of the staff (Dirk, Fein and other professionals insure that your stay is perfect. They book all of your activities, restaurant reservations and Uber cars. We felt very spoilt. This beautiful hotel is just down the street from Ellerman House which in my opinion is less personal and corporate. Nothing was amiss and we highly recommend 21 Nettleton!!

Just Perfect

Canton of Zurich, Switzerland

We travel a lot, globally and have visited already many hotels and spots on earth; now at 21 Nettleton in Clifton/Cape Town. We always thought that we already have seen the most beautiful places yet. But 21 Nettleton has definitely topped all what we have experience so far! One of the best hotel on the planet with an amazing view to the Atlantic Ocean, Clifton Beach and Camps Bay an on the other side just at the foot of Lions Head. The boutique style hotel is furnished with a lot of details and love and so is the staff: extremely helpful and attentive. The breakfast was rich and always with fresh ingredients. We stayed at Queens Room which was a large suite with all comfort one can wish. For people who think they have already experienced the top: you have not yet been to 21 Nettleton!
