Modern Design Luxury Accommodation in Cape Town

Elegant boutique hotel in Hout Bay, Cape Town

Welcome to THE PLATINUM BOUTIQUE HOTEL, an exclusive luxury retreat located on the majestic Little Lion's Head in Hout Bay.

THE PLATINUM is one of Cape Town's best kept secrets. We offer discerning travelers a luxurious escape in a private, sophisticated setting. 

Our property is a stone's throw from Cape Town's CBD. We are far enough from the city centre to be a haven of tranquility, but within easy reach of all the Mother's City's famous sights and attractions. It is this convenient balance that sees our loyal guests returning to THE PLATINUM year after year.

THE PLATINUM is renowned for superior service, chic decor and attention to detail. We more than live up to the 4-star rating given to us by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. We have also been awarded the prestigious SUPERIOR rating by the inspectors of AAQA - the Automobil Association of South Africa.

Relaxation by Design

Each suite has its own private entrance, luxurious bathroom, tea station and Nespresso machine. All our suites are non-smoking. We offer free high speed (100Mb) wireless internet (WiFi or WLan) throughout the property. In addition to the South African DSTV channels, our television program includes German channels ARD, ZDF, RTL and SAT1 via satellite.

Our Pool Suites overlook a designer salt water pool and lush gardens. Our Master Suite overlooks the gardens, Chapman's Peak and the Atlantic Ocean. From the main entertainment area, our guests enjoy vistas of the famous Chapman's Peak, the Table Mountain Nature Reserve and Hout Bay's tranquil beach. Lovers of modern architecture will appreciate our property's minimalistic Bauhaus-inspired design and sophisticated decor.

Great Weekend getaway

Highly recommended if you just want to get away from the daily grind for a weekend. I really enjoyed the massages, which I booked ahead of time. The weather did not play along, but the room was cozy. We enjoyed the large walk-in shower. Kudos for a great breakfast and the friendly staff.

I am already planning a weekend getaway with the girls to the platinum

An all over perfect stay!

We stayed at Ute's Guesthouse already two times within the last 3 months and enjoyed our stays to the fullest. It's perfectly located on Mount Rhodes with a stunning view over the Hout Bay Valley and its nearness to downtown Cape Town and Chapman's Peak Drive make it a perfect starting point to explore the Cape. This, and the very nice and welcoming atmosphere at the Guesthouse triggered by its beautiful modern architecture and design as well as the familiar attitude of the owners made up for an all over perfect stay. Andreas' recommendations regarding tours, restaurants and other trip opportunities around Cape Town helped our planning a lot. Our stay has been topped off by the choice we had been offered for breakfast. After travelling in South Africa for quite some time it was the first place where we got a healthy version of a breakfast, which by the way tasted absolutely amazing.

We'll definitely come back soon!

Perfect stay in Platinum Guesthouse!

We've stayed for 2 nights in Platinum Guesthouse. We stayed in the loft. A spacious and beautiful room. The spacious room was also really nice for our 1.5 year old daughter. The owners are so friendly. We received good restaurant recommendations in Hout Bay from them and we loved the fresh and healthy breakfast at Platinum Guesthouse. A perfect and relaxt stay that we would definitely recommend to anyone that will come to South Africa!

Boutique Hotel or ...?

Guest house or boutique hotel?

One of our prospective guests surprised us with the question: "What is the difference between a boutique hotel and a guest house?"
