A Cape Dutch manor house, Greenways offers traditional comfort of a bygone era but with all the creature comforts that can be expected of a five star modern establishment.

Greenways was originally named for its botanical surrounds, but there is a deep commitment by owner Susanne Faussner-Ringer to greening of the non-botanical variety. For Susanne, understanding that reducing one's environmental footprint is far more important than just purchasing a quick carbon off-set. From saving energy and water, and reducing their waste, to supporting sustainable seafood choices in their on-site restaurant - they have considered it all.

All the hotel's 570 energy-hungry incandescent lamps have also been replaced with the Eurolux energy savers, spanning the lobbies, bedrooms, bathrooms, conference facilities, kitchens and restaurants.

They also have the goal to offset what they can't save so that they will be able to brand themselves as a carbon-neutral establishment in the near future. and they are also pursuing accreditation under the independent Green Leaf Environmental Standard to satisfy the most critical of eco-conscious travellers out there
