THE STORY BEHIND OUR CAPE TOWN ACCOMMODATION
The story of Cape Town Hollow Hotel dates back to 1995 when Jack Brotherton (founder of the Hollow Hotels) opened the doors of Hippo Hollow Hotel on the banks of the Sabie River in Hazyview. After this hotel proved to be a great success, Jack went on to his next hotel venture and opened Knysna Hollow in 1998.
A few years later, Jack spread the Hollow Hotel wings and branched out into Cape Town, opening Cape Town Hollow Hotels doors onto Queen Victoria Street as a four-star establishment in 2003. The Hotel has become a welcome part of the neighborhood ever since. It is just a stones throw from The Company Gardens, the oldest garden in the country and an extension of Jan van Riebeeck's veggie supply for his 17th century colony. The ±40 year old building was Initially rented from a Mr Shirlock, until 2011 when he passed away,and Jack and his business partners bought the building.
Cape Town Hollow prides itself in its enthusiastic passionate staff who constantly strive to exceed guests expectations. The Hotel offers quiet accommodation with mountain, city and garden views, giving a natural atmosphere, and adding a "freshness" to the property. The on-site restaurant, Eighty-Ate, with a European street café flair, is driven by a passionate creative chef. The conference facilities have a lovely view with natural light.
The success of the Hollow Hotels did not end at Cape Town Hollow, in 2006 Cape Town's Hollow on the Square was opened along with Perry's Bridge Hollow in Hazyview. Casterbridge Hollow Hotel was opened in 2008, another great success in the Hollow Hotel family.
