The elegant penthouse apartments at the 4-star Fountains Hotel, conveniently situated in the vibrant heart of the Mother City, epitomise luxurious city living. These eleventh-floor apartments command fantastic views of the city, the mountains behind and the harbour below. They come in a variety of stylish décor options to suit any taste and have all the necessities, including high-speed wireless internet access, air conditioning, Mnet/satellite TV, and heating for cool evenings.
Enjoy all the advantages that stem from full service hotel living whilst still being able to choose the benefits of complete self-catering independence. The hotel provides 24-hour security and room service, and the well-equipped gym on the ground floor has a heated swimming pool with a view of the street for leisurely afternoon dips. Concierges who know everything there is to know about the city are available day and night at reception to provide good advice, help, and information. For an evening out, try the in-house restaurant’s delicious buffet offering, or relax at the bar for a sundowner or two. The hotel’s central location means that all the sights and entertainment that the city has to offer are on the doorstep, with shops, restaurants, night clubs and bars just a short stroll away, or saunter down to Cape Town’s working harbour for a spot of sightseeing.
The hotel, with its abundance of accommodation, easy parking and restaurant amenities, is the perfect venue for business travellers. There is a business centre in the lobby with two computers for executives’ use, plus wireless internet is available anywhere in the hotel, including the suites, conference rooms and all public areas. It has comprehensive conference facilities, with a number of rooms that can cater for as many as 250 delegates in a variety of set-up styles, and a qualified conference co-ordinator is available to offer advice. Complimentary equipment such as flipcharts with markers, notepads, pens and overhead projectors is provided. There are also a number of suites that may be utilised for private business meetings or as small conference venues.
One of these luxury penthouse apartments makes an ideal base from which to conduct a business visit to Cape Town, being in the business district and close to the Cape Town International Convention Centre, and, for those who need a car to travel to and from meetings, a secure undercover parking bay is available for an additional fee. The hotel’s airy ground floor has glass sliding doors that open onto the street, allowing the city’s energetic atmosphere to invade and be enjoyed along with a scrumptious meal. Just across the road, the sparkling fountain for which the hotel is named is an eye-catching feature that cools the air with its endless misty cascades. The refreshing liquid theme continues with the impressive water feature that borders the restaurant’s outdoor tables and dilutes traffic noise with the soothing sound of gently trickling water, and, for the more adventurous, may be used as a swimming pool too.
