|FILM & PRODUCTION
Dutch Manor Hotel has a service relationship with the film, media and live production sectors for the following reasons:
It is the ideal setting for historical and romantic shoots.
From the time you step onto our red carpet and enter this two storeyed, three-bay building with it’s high ‘stoep’ one walks into a time capsule. Yellowwood and stinkwood half-moon tables and a Cape-mahogany reception desk, dated 6 May 1852, gilded mirrors, embossed lamps and armoires set the ambience of typical 18th century style.
By the time you reach the second level, the 21st century sounds have faded as the thick walls, heavy brocaded drapes set the ambience for yet another tale to be told.
Rooms with sash windows, brooky lace and four poster beds, carefully handcrafted wardrobes, detailed Voortrekker wagons, kists and riempie couches. 500 thread count Egyptian linen, authentic bedside lamps and the smell of brewed coffee is the stuff that inspires writers, story tellers and film production companies.
Taking all the detailed facets of beauty and incredible style, Dutch Manor Hotel is undoubtedly well poised as the prime location for any film shoot in the Bo-Kaap.
