The Bishops' Court Location Map

The Bishops' Court is an exclusive 5* luxury hotel situated in one of Cape Town's most beautiful - and arguably most prestigious - suburbs. Nestled against the slopes of Table Mountain, and a short walk from the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, this exclusive hotel offers an idyllic location with mountain views from every room.

As its name suggests, the suburb of Bishopscourt is named after the Archbishop of Cape Town's residence. Situated in the south of Cape Town, Bishopscourt is a lush, green and leafy neighbourhood, home to the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

The hotel is within walking distance to Kirstenbosch Gardens, 5 minutes to the exclusive Cavendish shopping centre, 10 minutes to the city centre and V&A Waterfront, and a mere 20 minute drive to the beaches of Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

Guests at the hotel can leisurely sip cocktails around the pool, soak in the unforgettable views from the balcony, enjoy tea in the garden to a chorus of birdsong, or simply relax in front of the log fire in the lounge with a good book.

Each of the 5 elegantly appointed en-suite bedrooms provides total peace and privacy, with all the amenities one could wish for.

The rooms have all been individually decorated, creating their own unique character and providing utmost privacy whilst maintaining an intimate and relaxed atmosphere.

Some rooms have private patios opening onto the lush garden and all guests have the use of an inviting eternity pool and floodlit tennis court.

Start TestimonialWhat can I say ...... it was a fantastic holiday! Bishops Court was a beautiful property and all the staff (especially Lani and Daniel) were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble and also it was obvious they enjoyed their jobs and sharing Cape Town with visitors. Shamwari was everything and more.... we had chief ranger, who was aptly named Headman (not sure it was spelt that way). On the last morning drive there was just David and I with him, so he treated us to hot water bottles on the cold drive and we watched a family of elephants for some time and Headman told us such a lot about their behaviour and family hierarchy. Food and wine was excellent and plentiful!!!! Saw 8 of the 9 lions in Shamwari including the Big Daddy who gave us such a roar as we left the place they were lying. Scary and exhilarating at the same time. Watched giraffes, nyalas and warthogs from our Bayethe Lodge deck. A lovely starry night on our last evening, so bright. Sorry to leave when time came, I could go on for ever about the animals and am sure my friends/family are reaching boredom level with my tales; but really the experience is indescribable. I would like to thank Travel Butlers and yourself particularly for helping us with the holiday and also allowing us to make some of our own choices for the middle part of the holiday and then fitting your suggestions around them. Words are not enough to describe how we enjoyed the holiday and with a fair wind and god willing, we hope to be back soon. I hope your company enjoys good fortune during what looks like being difficult times in the travel industry in the coming months, it was a pleasure to deal with you.End Testimonial
