our history - The Marly

our history

where charm meets contemporary glamour

For the past 300 years royalty and captains of industry have graced this wonderland nestled in the timeless Constantia Valley. From Cecil John Rhodes and Lord Charles Somerset, to Mark Twain and Captain Cook, The Alphen Boutique Hotel has always been a purveyor of luxury hospitality in Constantia.

Set on 11.5 acres of lush land, The Alphen Boutique Hotel was previously a wine estate and a working farm, and still proudly boasts one of the oldest mills in the Western Cape. Her many transformations over the years have been as fascinating and unique as some particularly eccentric guests, most notable of which was Dr. Barry, who it was discovered on his deathbed, had masqueraded her entire life as a man.

As part of The Kove Collection, The Alphen Boutique Hotel is creating new stories of indulgence and decadence for future adventure seekers and treasure hunters looking to play their own part in of the future legend of the Alphen Boutique Hotel in Constantia, Cape Town.
