We have our own borehole and high-quality filtration system which provides all our water.
The Terrace is a quietly sophisticated, 4 Star guest house in Upper Kenilworth (adjacent to Claremont), a select area of Cape Town’s Southern Suburbs. The Terrace offers the discerning guest beautifully furnished accommodation, with all modern conveniences. Our style blends the essential “Englishness” of the area’s colonial origins with a serenity and informality that is uniquely African. The Terrace also offers an exceptionally convenient location: it is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, with the trendy little hub of ‘Kenilworth Village’ with its speciality shops and casual eateries, just a 2 minute stroll around the corner – a great attraction for guests, who make daily use of the local facilities.
Ideally located for leisure and business, The Terrace is a 5 minute drive from Claremont CBD and Cavendish Shopping Mall, 10 minutes from UCT, Newlands Cricket Ground, Newlands Rugby Stadium, 15 minutes from the City Bowl (CBD), the Table Mountain cable car and the hugely popular V&A Waterfront development.
Thanks to its central location and proximity to motorways, Kenilworth is a perfect base for accessing Cape Town’s greater surrounds: the popular visitor sites of the Cape Peninsula (Cape Point), the winelands (Stellenbosch and Franschhoek) and the Atlantic seaboard (Camps Bay and Clifton), are all virtually equidistant from us.
As well as the plethora of smaller businesses, two notable companies have their discrete headquarters in Kenilworth – Pam Golding Properties, around whose lovely development, ‘Pam Golding on Main’, the village of Kenilworth is centered; and Pick ‘n Pay, situated on the historic Kenilworth Racetrack estate.
Kenilworth is a well-known hub of specialized medical facilities, with such good reputations that patients come to them from all over the world, and many come to The Terrace to relax and convalescence, in peace. Crescent Clinic, Akeso Kenilworth Clinic, Tharagay House and Ixande Rehab., are all walking distance from The Terrace. Life Kingsbury Hospital, a private clinic with world-class specialist, is a couple of minutes by taxi.
Our three guest rooms, all with comfortable seating areas, are tastefully decorated and well equipped for guests' every practical requirement: complimentary WIFI, 32" flat screen television with Premium DSTV including all sports channels, air conditioning or remote controlled ceiling fan, ample wardrobe space, digital safe, mini-fridge, tea/coffee-making facilities and a hair dryer are standard in every room.
Milk, filtered water and tea/coffee are replenished daily. Bed and bath linen is of superior quality (pure cotton) and luxurious shower products are provided.
We love nothing more than for our guests to make themselves at home and the shady veranda, pool, sundeck with loungers and leafy garden, are all for your enjoyment. Swimming towels are provided.
Breakfast is served in the “Conservatory” dining room or on the veranda, if it’s not breezy.
On-site parking is available and accommodates most size vehicles, but longer vehicles may need to park around the corner in the secure Pam Golding parking, just 200m from The Terrace.
