I had a fantastic stay. The rooms are superb. Some of them are very large with king size beds. The staff is very nice. They advised very good restaurants. Very informal atmosphere. I did my work in the kitchen. No complaints at all.

My first visit to Cape Town. Historic building. Located well for walking to Bo Kaap Museum, District Six, Greenmarket Square, Company's Garden, Long St, etc. The staff here are very attentive and caring. The hotel has two great sitting rooms (one with a beautiful fireplace) with books and DVDs as well as a lovely courtyard (thought it was too rainy while I was there). There is also a roof deck with a nice view of Table Mountain and a hot tub. The hotel is impeccably decorated with some great contemporary art from local artists. They also have great historical photos of the area and the building itself. Definitely take a walk around the hotel and check it out. Each room is different and I loved mine. The bath had both a shower and a tub. They even provided both bath salts and bubble bath. And the heated towel rack was much appreciated on a stormy winter weekend. Nice breakfast, buffet plus made to order included in stay. The rooms have so many wonderful details, including international plugs so no worries if you forget your adapter. Lots of great restaurants ina walkable distance. I really enjoyed my stay here and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The hotel is lovely and the staff just puts it over the top.

I just wanted to take a moment to express my extreme approval for the staff, hotel decor and overall excellent experience I recieved while staying at your hotel. The beauty and history of the hotel was beyond belief. Just a ultimate "wow" factor. The rooms were beautiful, large and nicely furnished. The staff was extremely polite and helpful and made my family feel right at home. I highly recommend this hotel and will be staying there for many future Capetown trips.

I just love this hotel! This is my first visit to Cape Town and indeed to South Africa so I can't say with authority that it is the best place to stay, but it certainly suited our purposes. I am not sure that I can say anything that hasn't been said already. We had 2 rooms -101 that had a sitting room and 117 that had a lovely area to sit outside. Having peeked into a few of the other rooms they are all different and all look lovely. Breakfast is great and can be as small or large as you wish. Visiting in winter room 117 was definitely colder than 101 but nothing that couldn't be sorted. Staff were friendly and helpful and were genuine in their enquiries as to your day. Is there anything I didn't like? A tiny point but adding a charitable donation to the bill out of the blue to a charity I hadn't seen mention of throughout my stay I found a little odd, but it was voluntary. The staff and the hotel definitely helped make our trip of a lifetime to South Africa a very memorable one.

Room Tip: I don't think you would be disappointed in any of the rooms

Dear Guest

Thank you for all your lovely comments. We are very proud of our staff and had fun decorating each room in a unique manner. Regarding the charity : I apologise you were not informed at check-in that we support the Zip Zap Children’s Circus via an optional levy on the room account. As a company we are passionate about Zip Zap : We believe that they are an amazing NGO that allow children from all walks of life to come together and learn not only circus, but also life skills. Zip Zap has been in existence for over 22 year now and some of our guest like to go to their shows or practices. Normally in each room you would find an annual report and a brochure. Donations obviously are on a voluntary basis and through the gracious generosity of our guests we raise about R 35 000 yearly. All proceeds (100%) go to Zip Zap which is used to support some of their programs : these range from empowering children living with HIV to giving opportunities and a future to young adults living in shelters. We thank you for your contribution and hope that we may welcome you back soon !

Second time at Cape Heritage Hotel, obviously not the last. A charming place with old-style decorations, rooms are amazing and the quality of service is very high (for instance for organizing tours in and outside Cape Town).

I travel to Cape Town frequently on business and pleasure, and always find the service and setting of the Cape Heritage to be a perfect base. Right by the central business district, safe to walk around, great restaurants at your doorstep, and easy road access to all the best sights. The rooms are spacious, the grounds are fantastic, and the breakfasts are great & in a very relaxing setting. Highly recommended!

This hotel resembles a well-kept museum of Cape Town some 50 years ago. Rooms and corridors are full of antique pieces of furniture, pictures and statuettes arranged in a very pleasing manner.
The staff is friendly and helpful and the location is a 5 minute walk from the City center with busy Long Street. Breakfast is delicious and there are many good restaurants in the neighborhood.
One gets the feeling of being a member of an international family.

Room Tip: All rooms are nicely decorated, fully equipped and quiet.
