I didn't want to stay in a large chain hotel so chose the Cape Heritage and it did not disappoint. The ambiance is lovely, the staff are lovely and the rooms are lovely, it's not like any other hotel I've stayed in!
The location in the square is great too, we arrived late on our first night so stayed in the square for dinner which has a great atmosphere. The walk to the V&A was about 15 mins and just a few minutes from Green Market Square so it's a great location. If you want to spend more time at the V&A then I would suggest staying closer but one visit for us was enough, it's nice but very touristy.
The hotel decor has been done beautifully, it feels old still but is all new and modern, it is an old building so you do hear some noise from other rooms and the street but it didn't bother us, it was nice to be in the action. One tip is that you have to request to have the hot tub switched on as it takes a few hours to heat up - we headed up there to find it cold and were a bit disappointed.
I would definitely stay here again!
