if you are after location in Cape Town then this hotel will suit as it is close to the Promenade in one direction and restaurants in the other. If you intend to spend time in your room or are looking for a room with a view then Cascades might disappoint. While the room was spotless and well appointed it was...

The location is close to the promenade but set back enough to avoid the noise. Sea view rooms are great if you can get them, but the others are dark and have no view at all. Even the ones that claim to have a terrace really just have a space between the door and the outside wall. The rooms are...

Striving for perfection, Luc and Else’s Cascades on the Promenade is a vacation home away from home. Each guest room in the seven-room BnB is sleek and snazzy, with cutting-edge electronics (including wifi and desktop Apple computers), modern bathrooms, room lighting, and comfortable beds. Some rooms also have large balconies with views of the ocean. And yet, what makes the...

Cascades is a fantastic hotel and was our home base in Cape Town for 4 nights and I couldn't have been happier. I was a bit worried at first since many of the reviews on here said the rooms were super small. So I was imaging like tiny--if you have ever stayed at Yotel in NYC you know what a...

Having regularly enjoyed the Cascades wonderful breakfast on the deck when visiting Cape Town it seemed to be a good idea to stay in the hotel on our next visit. The current owner completely renovated the hotel froma dilapidated boarding house unto a beautiful six bedroomed boutique hotel. Our room was perfectly furnished and equipped with a large terrace.

I had breakfast at the Cascades at the Promenade restaurant. We sat outside (they have blankets if it becomes a bit chilly) and I had the Eggs Benedict. It was delicious! Service was good, great spot for brunch on your way exploring Sea Point or inbetween Sea Point and Cape Town.

My usual Cape Town place was booked up for the night, so I just needed one night before moving over to the other place. I found Cascades on TripAdvisor as being a top-rated hotel and significantly cheaper than the others with similar reviews. The hotel was lovely. The room was a little on the small side, but you don't want...

Really magnificent place to stay in Cape Town. Close to the Promenade stretch and My Citi bus route stop. Beautiful and cosy rooms. Breakfast was one the best I've experienced in a long time. The muffins and croissants, just divine!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A fine boutique hotel, situated along the Atlantic Seaboard, in Sea Point, Cape Town. The concept of this city hotel is to offer "young of heart" travelers an ideal base from where to explore Cape Town and surroundings at affordable rates, without compromising any quality expectations. The ideal guest for Cascades on the Promenade is the well informed traveler, who is interested and anxious to discover Cape Town for what it is... a bustling, vibrant and incredibly beautiful city, brimming with activities and diversity. Our traveler doesn't want to sacrifice valuable holiday-time due to a remote or difficult location of the hotel, away from the main attractions, or battling with internet connection issues, insufficient hot water in the shower or more of those complicated situations that tend to spoil a vacation. Our guests want to get up and about after a good nights' rest in a perfectly equipped and soft furnished room. Breakfast awaits our traveler in the cozy Hotel Bistro or outside on the terrace, where he or she already mingles with the local regulars. The hotel is superbly positioned for immediate action, whether that is a vigorous jog along Cape Town's magnificent Seaboard... or a leisurely stroll... it's all right here on our doorstep... From the hotel it is a five minute walk to the Olympic size, open air, sea-side swimming pool or an even shorter stroll to the Beach Road to catch a ride on the Hop-on, Hop-off Topless Sightseeing Bus, which passes every twenty minutes. The bus takes you on a roundtrip through Cape Town. From the hotel it goes along the Promenade to the V&A Waterfront, through the inner city and further up to the Table Mountain Cable Car station. From there it goes down to the Clifton and Camps Bay beaches and back to the Promenade in front of the hotel. The Hotel The hotel is housed in a Cape-Victorian style, 120-year-old protected heritage building. An extensive renovation in 2010 has transformed the original structure into a very modern, super trendy place with a distinct international flair. Our guest will immediately recognize the spot as a trendsetter, definitely on par with leading small design hotels sprinkled around the larger cities of Europe, Asia or the United States. The latest on offer in hotel technology has been incorporated in the design and furnishings. The seven Deluxe rooms are very "complete". Five of them have outside balconies with comfortable seating arrangements. The two rooms without outside balcony are extra large and can accommodate an extra bed. All rooms have King size (180 cm) beds with soft, leather head boards and build-in reading lights. Remote controlled air conditioning (heating/cooling). Large walk-in rain showers, thermostatic taps, wall-mounted hairdryers and heated towel rails in the bathrooms. A state of the art 40" (1m) LED TV screen, a 23" Apple Mac computer with free internet, Wi-Fi access point, Bose iPod docking station, CD Player, Telephone, International plugs, Electronic Safe, Mini Bar and a Nespresso machine are standard in every room. Nighttime security is provided directly to the guest through automated roller shutters in the rooms and in general through a 24-hour attendance at reception and closed circuit camera's in the public area's. The Bistro Bright yellow Vitra tub chairs on the terrace and black leather upholstering inside the bistro, copper leaf and rich walnut wall paneling, Tom Dixon design lighting and a Samsung video wall for entertainment... the combination of these elements create the ideal setting where we offer our guests a fine, contemporary cuisine throughout the day. On the day-menu are light snacks and refreshing salads, from a choice of pasta's to fresh fish or a prime cut of succulent beef fillet. The "Patisserie" chef makes sure that coffee never goes without the necessary indulgence on the side. For dinner we change the setting for a fine-dining experience with a French style Bistro menu. And of course, there is the bar for a stiff drink, a cocktail or a good selection of South African wines. ... more   less
