THE ROBERTSON SMALL HO­TEL

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - HEALTH -

Nes­tled be­tween the Lange­berg and Rivier­son­derend hills, this chic bou­tique hide­away is the per­fect es­cape from the city. The Vic­to­rian pavil­ion-style property houses 10 guest suites, a bar,and the ho­tel’s star at­trac­tion, Reuben’s at The Robertson restau­rant. We dined al fresco on the court­yard pa­tio en­joy­ing lo­cal wines and un­pre­ten­tious dishes packed with ro­bust flavours, not ably the crispy Asian-style cala­mari and suc­cu­lent lamb rack. Much thought has gone into the stylish bed­room dé­cor, with its sky­lights, rich wood and neu­tral tones pro­vid­ing a home-away-from-home feel. Our lux­u­ri­ous suite, which spilled out onto an elon­gated pool with a spa­cious deck, was ideal for en­joy­ing a morn­ing espresso, and the en-suite bath­room’s over­sized tub and olive oil-in­fused ameni­ties made for an in­dul­gent evening bath. En­sure you book in for a mas­sage at the Well­ness Room for a lit­tle ex­tra pam­per­ing. The area also has plenty of scenic walks, per­fect for un­wind­ing in na­ture.
