Dorp means ‘village’, and in its most diminutive sense, that’s exactly what it is – a compound of architecturally distinct buildings, clustered around a wild, bird-filled garden, with Onderdorp, a separate wing, located the length of the block below.
With a wide selection of accommodation options, the intention has always been to offer something for everyone. From great value rooms that open onto garden patios under leafy arbours, to huge suites with kitchens and fireplaces; compact rooms with enormous views to top-tier studio-style apartments with his and her bathrooms, and views that will keep you in bed (or your bath!) for days …
At the very top of the residential suburb on the eastern flank of Signal Hill, DORP occupies the most enviable position.
Below you the city, all human endeavour dwarfed by the imposing bulk of Table Mountain and Devils Peak … the craggy Twelve Apostles glimpsed through Kloof Nek … the blue sweep of Table Bay… a unique perspective on one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
The rooms are beautiful. The attention to detail is second to none. The food is unfussy, generous, classic – more homestyle than hotel, served in our gorgeous Salon.
The experience is one of being cocooned. In an aura of decadence. With plenty of generosity. And a touch of humour.
