With its clean, white lines, blue trim and prime positioning, arriving at the Blue Peter Hotel reminds you that you're finally on holiday. Whether you're staying for a week or a weekend, this characteristic establishment offers an at-home cosiness that relaxes and releases, leaving an impression that time has stopped and the world outside no longer exists. Ideally situated on the Blouberg Beach, it's the perfect holiday destination for families and couples alike.
What really sets The Blue Peter Hotel apart is the view it enjoys of Table Mountain. The iconic landmark cuts an impressive silhouette across the horizon, fronted by the navy ocean. Few views could rival that of the mountain at sunset, revered by locals who are drawn like lemmings to Bloubergâ€™s beaches known to be the very best for one of South Africaâ€™s most sought-after panoramas.
Blouberg beach also boasts a spectacular view of Robben Island, the former prison island where political prisoners were incarcerated during the apartheid era. Between September and December, binoculars are a must as it is during this time that the mammoth Southern Right whale visits Table Bay on its way to Gansbaai and Hermanus to mate and calf.
With its affordable rates, which include breakfast, and its close proximity to amenities, including Cape Town's city centre and V&A Waterfront, the airport, wine farms, shopping centres, golf courses and much more, the Blue Peter Hotel is the perfect place to get away from it all and truly unwind.
The hotel also boasts two fully equipped conference rooms, with packages to accommodate both small and large groups. The Lighthouse Restaurant can seat 100 people, making it the perfect location for intimate weddings and other celebrations. The Lighthouse Bar has a full selection of both local and international beverages, while the Lower Deck Bistro offers a more casual environment for a family meal, or that â€˜just-off-the-beachâ€™ relaxation.
Whether itâ€™s the sports game on TV, the lure of company with friends, a romantic dalliance, or some quiet time alone, this is a charming spot to while away long hours.
