About Lanzerac Hotel

Lanzerac has deep rooted history dating back to 1692 with the original owner, Isaac Schrijver, who named it Schoongezicht, before the name was changed to Lanzerac in 1914. Senator Bobby Kennedy once visited when these historic buildings were converted into a hotel in the 1950’s and 60’s. Today, Lanzerac Hotel boasts the most beautiful collection of Cape Dutch buildings set in a peaceful landscape, and offering guests extensive recreational and dining facilities, and extensive Cape wine cellar.
