We stayed here for four nights after flying into Cape Town at the start of a two week holiday. We wanted to be in the city close to restaurants and bars. Location was perfect. Hotel booked us taxis until we realised Uber were in Cape Town as well. Our preference is for small boutique hotels with great character. If you... More

Our end of holiday stay at the Cape Heritage truly exceeded all our expectations, and we encourage all to give this great place a try. City centre hotels are often very average, lazy and tired, as they trade on their location and old reputation. The Cape Heritage is totally client-focussed from the moment you approach the steps to this wonderfully... More

What an interesting hotel. If, like us, you prefer the 'off the beaten track' type of hotels, then this is for you. The location is central, rooms clean and well furnished and the vibe of the hotel is laid back but still professional with very friendly and helpful staff

The hotel is in an old building which has seen many uses since it was constructed in the 18th century. It is built around a small courtyard,referred to as Heritage Square which has a number of small businesses including a restaurant. Access is only via the hotel as far as I could see. The hotel has the feel of a... More

We stayed at Cape Heritage for 4 nights on our Honeymoon whilst exploring Cape Town. Chose it for its location which is really ideal if you are a foodie as it is right near an absolute tonne of nice restaurants. However, when we got there we were really impressed with the hotel as well. We had a 'luxury room' and... More

Well renovated and beautiful location. Parking lot rights across the street. Friendly staff, comfortable bed, beautiful shower. It's unusual to find a unique hotel and this one fits the bill. Happy to return next time in town!

This hotel is not ideal for more than one night. Our room was opposite the hotel in an annexe. Our room was dark and tiny with the shower cubicle in the bedroom. This suppose to be a heritage room!

Fabulous rooms - we had a junior suite, fabulous staff, great breakfast, roof terrace with hot tub and sun loungers, central position and surrounded by restaurants - what's not to like? Our room was on top of a restaurant and overlooked the main road, but unless you are particularly sensitive to noise, not really an issue. The restaurant below us... More
