My mother and I stayed here in late December and loved every minute. Pretty, clean rooms. Lovely bathrooms. The breakfast was amazing. The staff was spectacular. They went out of their way to make our visit very special. I highly recommend this hotel!

We spent 3 nights at the Cape Cadogan in December 2013. It was a perfect hotel for us; very welcoming and comfortable with a little bit of personal touch. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished, breakfast was delicious and always served with a smile. We also found the people at the reception desk very knowledgeable about the area. They...

My husband and I traveled to South Africa over Thanksgiving holiday. We stayed in Cape Cadogan for 3 nights. I would say the best part about this hotel was how helpful the staff was.

Hard to even imagine how someone could be disappointed with Cape Cadogan, and my wife and I have high standards The staff was all absolutely 100%, the accommodations lovely, and the location -- a bit away from the craziness at the waterfront, and the gated timeshares down there -- perfect. Absolutely would not hesitate to...

The communal areas of this boutique hotel are very pleasant and the staff that greeted us on arrival were excellent (Cemone and Cliff) but sadly not all the staff perform at this level and our room, in our opinion, was tired. On the positive side there is however a good chauffeur service to the V&A Waterfront. I have, since visiting,...
