The Cape Heritage Hotel is a really nice home away from home. The service feels very personal and attentive, and the décor is really lovely. Each room is decorated in a different style and what's nice is that they leave the doors of unoccupied rooms open so that you can get a sense of what other ones look like. Although the choice is not enormous, the food at breakfast was very nice. The only slight worry that we had was about the size of the actual breakfast room. There must be only 8 places in total... which was not a problem when we were there because the hotel was not very full. But, when it gets busy, I wonder what they do. One really nice thing was that we had to check out very early in the morning to get our plane back to Jo'burg and they did make special arrangements so that we could have breakfast before it usually starts.
The only thing that I slightly disliked about the hotel was its location. We'd stayed at another place in the same area in early 2006 and had the impression that the town centre had got a little less secure since then. We definitely didn't feel at ease wandering around the neighbourhood after sunset. Fortunately, there is a choice of a number of restaurants in the courtyard behind the hotel. So, you don't necessarily have to go far to eat at night. Plus, they do offer secure parking on the adjacent square. So, it's easy to avoid walking anywhere. The other downside to the central location, however, is a little unavoidable — there did tend to be a certain amount of noise from the street at night... which could be a problem if you're a light sleeper.
