Says Gaby Gramm, Graham Beck Hospitality General Manager: ‘We are honoured that Steenberg has been included in the Top 12 listing. The hotel offers an unsurpassed, one-stop guest experience. We have a wonderful array of diverse activities available here on site, offering our guests a wide choice of experiences. These range from the superb hotel facilities, with two restaurants, Catharina’s and Bistro Sixteen82, and the new bubbly bar, Gorgeous, to our spa, Steenberg winery and of course, excellent golfing activities. There really is something on offer for everyone at Steenberg, and we are therefore very pleased with the latest recognition that highlights the top qualities of our hotel.

We also regard this as a real boost for the Constantia valley, and are encouraged by the fact that wine enthusiasts from across the world are attracted as much by the exceptional wines we produce, as by the world-class accommodation and gourmet experience that makes a visit to Cape Town’s own vineyard, an unforgettable experience.’
