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. We had no set plans prior to getting to Cape Town. We had some friends staying at Kensington Place and Cape Cadogan's staff arranged our wine...

Saw that someone was "disappointed." 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,...

A wonderfully relaxing 4 night stay following our Botswana safari. Room well appointed, breakfast in the garden was a delight. The friendly staff were happy to book restaurants and excursions for us as well as reservations for our next stay in Stellenbosch.

This is a beautiful and elegant small hotel that still feels a lot like a family home. Friendly attentive staff, a lovely spacious room and excellent breakfasts all added up to a superb three night stay. It's also in a pleasant, safe location within about 15/20 minutes walk or 5 minute taxi ride to waterfront and main sightseeing areas.

There are no complaints regarding this exceptional boutique hotel, a former private home. The staff was nothing short of accommodating and service oriented; the details in the dining room, the food presentation and its taste, and the coffee were delicious in taste and to the eye. But our bedroom, No. 3, was covetous. We slept without interruption in beds and...

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.

“I rated the room as average only due to a poor wi-fi connection. The room was otherwise excellent! Wi-fi was important to us because we were so far from home and needed to be able to stay in touch. It may not be an issue for other travelers. ”
