About Us

Nestled against the backdrop of the majestic Table Mountain lies The Walden House.  Build in 1900, this gracious Victorian home and garden suites, have been restored to its original splendor and refurbished with the most elegant finishes.  It has a colonial style, with a touch of Africa, and an open ambience without clutter, with each piece of furniture selected with a purpose.

There are seven elegant en-suite rooms that offer you an unique and private setting in colonial style:  White cotton bedlinen, white painted wooden floors and ceiling fans for hot African summer days.  Four of the rooms offer direct access to the beautiful garden.  The large luxury suite has a fireplace, large Victorian bathroom with a separate shower.  It offers direct access to the balcony with mountain views.  All the bathrooms are luxurious with heated towel rails.  Each room has a flat screen television, telephone, mini bar, air conditioning, electronic safe and wireless internet access.

Breakfast is always a treat at The Walden House.  The in-house chef offers you wholesome colonial breakfast in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
