Our Story

Cape Town Hollow & Seasons in Africa

One of the best boutique hotels in Cape Town, Cape Town Hollow was established in 2003. It was the third hotel opened in the Seasons in Africa’s Hollow Hotels Collection. The story dates back to the mid-1990s, when Jack Brotherton, opened the doors of the first Hollow Hotel on the banks of the Sabie River in Hazyview – Hippo Hollow. After Hippo Hollow proved to be a great success, Jack went on to his next venture and opened Knysna Hollow in 1998 on the Garden Route.

A few years later, Jack spread the Hollow Hotel brand and branched out into Cape Town, opening Cape Town Hollow’s doors onto Queen Victoria Street in 2003. The 4-star hotel has enjoyed growing success over the past 15 years and now counts itself among Cape Town’s staple establishments. Cape Town Hollow is just a stone’s throw from Table Mountain and the Company’s Gardens – the oldest gardens in the country and an extension of Jan van Riebeeck’s vegetable supply for his 17th century colony.


Brilliant Hotel

Wonderful stay. Fastidiously clean. We had a perfect view of Table Mountain from our room. Great places around to eat but own restaurant also excellent. Free courtesy bus down to and back from Waterfront. All the staff are amazingly helpful and cheerful but have to particularly name check Nicole, Steph, Chantal, Ebrahim, Wahied.
