The story of Cape Town Hollow Hotel dates back to 1995 when Jack Brotherton (founder of the Hollow Hotels) opened the doors of Hippo Hollow Hotel on the banks of the Sabie River in Hazyview.

A few years later, Jack spread the Hollow Hotel wings and branched out into Cape Town, opening Cape Town Hollow Hotels doors onto Queen Victoria Street as a four-star establishment in 2003. The Hotel has become a welcome part of the neighborhood ever since. It is just a stones throw from The Company Gardens, the oldest garden in the country and an extension of Jan van Riebeeck's veggie supply for his 17th century colony.
