This inviting hotel is now part of a group called the Mantis Owners Collection, a family-run group of five-star properties. The staff will collect you from the airport and even ferry you to and from restaurants in the evening. There are five luxurious bedrooms, all different, but each smartly decorated in classic country style. Some have private patios opening on to the lush garden. Other bonuses are an infinity pool and floodlit tennis court. Bishops Court is the upmarket Cape Town suburb home to diplomats and politicians.
