Wonderful place, great helpful & friendly staff. The rooms are beautiful - lovely fluffy towels & crisp sheets, a real oasis of tranquility in the city.

I stayed at the Cape Cadogan for 4 nights with my wife and our 21 month old daughter. Even though the hotel has a no children(under 8) policy - they were extremely accommodating and put us in the Owner's Villa.

The Villa is located next to the hotel and is amazing. It is almost as big as my flat in London. We had our own kitchen, lounge, pool, BBQ and dining room.

The quility of the Villa rivals any 5* hotel I've stayed in - anywhere.
There was not a single detail we could find fault with.

Because children are not allowed in the main building - although they never stopped our little one from running around everywhere - breakfast was brought to us in the Villa everymorning - in addition to providing us with a fully stocked fridge. Their muffins are to die for.

Stretton and Liesl are absolutely brilliant managers/hosts. They bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable - from organizing baby sitters to pulling strings into getting us dinner bookings. I can't say enough positive things about them.

The hotel itself is perfectly situated to every site in Cape Town. We even walking down to the V&A Waterfront. It's a3 minute drive to the cable cars at Table Mountain and a 15 minute drive to Camps Bay.

We almost never travel to the same city twice - but we will definitely be back to Cape Town and will most assuredly stay at The Cape Cadogan!

What a lovely hotel to stay at while in Cape Town for four nights! I arrived late in the evening, and had pre-arranged for a meal to be delivered to my room. All arrangements handled promptly and perfectly. I stayed in one of the separate apartments in the block behind the main house. Very nice accomodations - just a short walk to the main house for morning breakfast, which was delicious. Loved eating on the terrace by the small pool. The staff behind the desk were always very helpful to arrange tours for me, dinner reservations, and even provide assistance in securing my packed goods to take home! Location is great - not far from the Mount Nelson Hotel. Nice restaurants nearby. Table Mountain in the background. Will definitely stay only at the Cadogan upon returning to Cape Town!

Overall, an excellent stay. The decor of this small hotel is simple, clean, crisp and white. The staff is very helpful - especially the ladies who serve breakfast. And, the breakfast is top notch. The location is very good. The pool is very small, but that was not an issue for us as we were so busy exploring Cape Town. I would go back.

We spent 6 nights in what we belive to be one of the best hotels in Cape Town, The staff were fantasic and the hotel was superb
from the smallest little thing to the complementary Sherry or Port at night. We realy cannot recomend this hotel more highly.

Thanks to all .

Step back in time for a service second to none.
A small Boutique Hotel full of old fashioned charm.
This is a B&B hotel and does not offer lunch or dinner so might not suit all tastes.
6pm every day sees Port and Sherry together with chocolates and nibbles available in the lounge area free of charge.
Return to your room at night and find the blinds drawn, bed covers turned down, a chocolate on the pillow , a bottle of water with a glass on the bed side table and finally a slip cloth on the carpet placed so that your feet are on the cloth as you get in and out of bed.
We arrived early after an over night flight of 12 hrs and were made comfortable in the lounge with complimentary refreshments as we waited for our room to be readied.
We had to book out by 11 am yet our flight pick-up was not scheduled till 5pm. Complimentary refreshments were provided.
A cancelled tour saw the reception staff going all out to find us a place on a similar tour with another company successfully.
My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel and its staff.
It is close to small restaurants which offer a variety of food from Pizza. Sea Food, Oriental and Bistro.
Food is cheap in Cape Town together with accommodation. Taxi's however are expensive due to the high price of fuel.

  • Liked — Great Service. The view of table mountain as you go to breakfast.
  • Disliked — Only had 3 days to enjoy it

We enjoyed four nights at the Cape Cadogan at the beginning of March- it was wonderful. From the minute you walked through the door you were made to feel at home. A welcome cold drink and then a tour of the hotel followed. Cape Cadogan is in a small side street off a busy road but you feel a million miles away from civilisation once you walk in through the doors.It is themed on the Irish literary figure Oscar Wilde its main rooms although only small exude a comfortable, luxurious atmosphere, filled with vases of fresh flowers. Our room at the front of the property had the most amazing bathroom with beautiful products to pamper yourself with. Breakfast was a treat with very attentive staff and this could be enjoyed on the patio near the pool or indoors. The hotel also offered full internet access which was very useful. Every effort was made by the staff to book trips ,offer recommendations and arrange any requests made by travellers. On our departure day we had to vacate our room by 11am but weren't being collected until 6pm for our trip to the airport we were fortunate to be able to have another room to ourselves so that we could shower and change ,with no cost. One point of note if you don't have a car and you want to get to the Waterfront taxis are easy to use at a cost of around 50 rand ( under four pound) Also a must do .Use the Hop on ,hop off sightseeing bus its super and if its a clear day go up Table Mountain.Well done Cape Cadogan hopefully we will be back.
