“Wonderful boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2011

This is a truly stunning hotel. I was upgraded to a suite and had a beautiful room. The hotel is well located for exploring the city and staff were very helpful giving advice on sites to visit. Only negative point was the proximity of my room to the restaurant which made Saturday night a bit noisy. But otherwise the staff were lovely - the breakfast was amazing and I would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful spacious room with comfortable bed and luxury bathroom. Service is superb. Very helpfull staff with genuine interest to provide the best information to the Cape Town visitor.
We had a very late flight back and could use our room till the moment of departures without extra costs.

We stayed here twice on our trip to South Africa. This boutique hotel is very conveniently located in the centre of Cape Town with walking distance to shops, restaurants and galleries in one of the oldest buildings in the city. It is surrounded by a great selection of restaurants and wine bar in the charming Heritage Square. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are absolutely exquisitely decorated, the service is friendly – overall the Cape Heritage has a lovely atmosphere, beautiful rooms in a great location. We would definitely stay here again.

I highly recommend the Cape Heritage. We were traveling in a group of three. Most hotels won't accomodate a group of that size in one room, but they had no trouble with it. Our room was gorgeous--spacious and wonderfully decorated. The staff was incredible. They were so helpful--they booked tours for us, gave us suggestions for local restaurants, and even made arrangements at a local spa for us. Also, the location is great. It is close to most of the city sites and is right next door to an excellent wine bar.

We spent 4 days in a spotless luxury room on the strees(as early birds,we weren't bothered by the noise of deliveries).
Well located to explore CT and situated in a block with several fine and affordable restaurants:we did appreciate to have not to leave the hotel at night!
Great decor,nice room,bathroom and service

Best hotel during our trip in South Africa. The room and bathroom were spacious and contained all the nice little extras. It has a nice courtyard with a number of good restaurants. Two minor complaints were that they charged quite a bit for the airport transfers (we actually asked them to arrange a cheaper taxi, but this was apparantly not possible) and the breakfast was not quite fancy enough for a hotel of this standing (no fresh orange jus, etc.).

Beautiful and big room and bath room, nicely decorated in classic style with some modern touches. Staff very attentive and friendly. Lovely courtyard for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks (shared with other restaurants & wine bar). The location in the middle of Cape Town centre is convenient. The 100m away parking lot is guarded and at no cost for hotel guests. WiFi good and at no cost. This is a very nice hotel if you want ambiance and not just a bed and shower, but do not need a pool and gym.
