We stayed in the Cape Heritage Hotel for our last night in Cape Town before ending our 2-week trip through South Africa. It was the perfect hotel for us. The staff is friendly, the rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated, and the location is perfect for exploring Cape Town. A highlight is enjoying their delightful breakfast under the shade of...

We stayed here on the 25th and 26th December 2016 during our honeymoon and we loved it! The staff were very helpful and friendly and the location was great. We loved our bedroom, it had a standalone bath tub and was very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated! I think all of the rooms are decorated differently. There is no pool...

Location is central and ideal to explore from. Room and facilities were modern and elegant and the hotel had an old charm feel about it. Lovely breakfasts. I was upgraded to a family double unit when my children joined me for the last night of my stay at no additional cost! The staff were very friendly and most helpful going...

Excellent location close to restaurants, shops, car rental agencies, and interesting neighborhoods such as Bokaap. Friendly staff and great rooms. If staying above the restaurants on the courtyard I would advise inquiring about a quieter one but I personally didn't have any problems staying above them. Would def come back.

Stayed here as a solo traveller for 3 nights. I would class this place as a boutique B&B (bed and breakfast). Facilities were less than if you were staying in a hotel, but that didn't matter. You have a lovely communal living room and a cute courtyard which backs onto a lot of lovely restaurants. The guys on the front...

Beautiful hotel. Huge rooms, huge beautiful re-done bathrooms, friendly and helpful staff. Great location, so many restaurants on Bree street, walking distance to stores, feels safe. One complaint- it is noisy. We were only staying for one night on our way to Camps Bay and I did not sleep well- my husband slept just fine. If you are a light...

This hotel is in a perfect location, easy walking distance from the market square shops restaurants, park and museum. The building is beautiful the staff are exceptional, however there was a big problem on a number of nights of our stay. There is a very noisy restaurant sharing the same court yard. So noisy that it prevents sleep until very...

Half hour from the airport into central C.T. Easy walk to cafes, bars, shops and restaurants. A beautiful historical building with lots of African art pieces on the walls and in the corridors. A warm welcome, hotel parking just round the corner, decent sized room and bathroom around a central courtyard which housed their restaurant. Very pretty, but if you...
