Everything was right about this boutique property. I loved it, I felt very comfortable here from the bedding and the little warmers under the down comforters to the design, staff and food. The neighborhood was safe, we walked to dinner and felt safe. The bathroom was modern and the towels fluffy. I loved sitting downstairs by the fire and reading....

From the moment we arrived the staff at the hotel made our first experience of South Africa one of exceptional friendliness and service. The location is excellent and as two females we felt safe walking between the hotel and the long street both day and night.

We have recently had the wonderful experience of staying at the beautiful Cape Cadogan Boutique hotel. Service was first rate, attention to detail impeccable. Loved the location as it was so close to Kloof street, where there are a lot of restaurants and bars which are quite cheap. This is a boutique hotel and certainly has that personal touch.

Cape Cadogan is a beautiful, small boutique hotel. As it is so small it's also more personal and the staff are very helpful and kind. Our room was a luxury suite and it was absolutely lovely. Spacious and comfortable with a beautiful big veranda type balcony with a view of Table Mountain. The bathroom was incredible too; huge with double...

We loved our honeymoon stay here, the staff were all excellent and made some great restaurant recommendations - thanks to Wisdom in particular who told us about Arnold's restaurant! The room was lovely with a view of Table Mountain and a huge, comfy bed. Only slight downside was that the breakfast wasn't quite as '5 star' as everything else but...

We stayed here in mid September 2013 and had a fabulous stay. The hotel is in a relatively quiet street but if you want real peace, try to get a room at the back. The staff were all exemplary.
