The Heritage Suites at Steenberg Hotel offer elegant accommodation for the most discerning travellers. Grounded in the rich heritage of the Estate, these luxurious suites celebrate our Hotel’s status as a Provincial Heritage site. The three suites, The Cape Colonial, The Khoi Khoi and The Dutch East India pay tribute to three distinct periods in the Cape’s history through a contemporary interpretation of these landmark eras. Offering luxurious accommodation and amenities, personalised service and understated elegance, the Heritage Suites consistently exceed expectations.The suites are housed within the original Jonkershuis building, a traditional Cape Estate building with the original purpose of housing young bachelors. This building adheres to the laws for Historic Buildings, and so the exteriors have not been altered in any way, and reflect the estate’s original 17th century architecture and design. The interiors of these magnificent suites, however, unfold into a seamless combination of old-world charm and modern opulence.
