Wellington Accommodation

Wellington is located 45 minutes away from Cape Town. Wellington's economy is centred around agriculture such as wine, table grapes, citrus fruit and a brandy industry. The town is located 75km north-east of Cape Town and reached by the N1 motorway and R44 highway. Wellington is situated at the foot of the Groenberg on the banks of the Kromme Rivier (Dutch for Bend River) and forms the center of the Cape Winelands with its picturesque environment and numerous wineries.

The town is at the base of one of the oldest mountain passes in the country, Bain's Kloof Pass, built by master road-builder Andrew Geddes Bain. The pass up to Bain's Kloof winds through pine tree plantations, to the summit where on a clear day you can see a vast area, consisting of the Swartland to the left, home of the extensive wheat fields, the Cape Flats and Cape Town to the right, and the sun glimmering on the sea.
