“Probably.....the best service in the world”
Reviewed 6 September 2010

An absolutely incredible experience. The service was the best we have ever encountered! (without being over the top!) Nothing was too much to ask for and the hotel was extremely flexible on check in/out time. Lovely rooms and breakfast, great location. Will definitely be returning and will be booking one of the rooms with the huge bathrooms (missed out on them this time unfortunately!)

The Cape Cadogan Hotel has all the charms of an intimate B&B and yet the quality of accommodation, the breakfast and, above all else, the personalised service are better than most 5-star hotels. Unlike many 'boutique hotels' which can be a bit rough around the edges, the Cape Cadogan is anythig but. The attention to detail is fantastic.
Location - A lovely, quiet residential street a few minutes' walk away from dozens of cafes and restaurants (and some very nice shops) on Kloof Street and Long Street.
The room - We were in Room 8; beautiful room with a terrace (looking out to Table Mountain) and a massive bathroom.
Breakfast - Absolutely delicious!
Service - Incredible service...very friendly, helpful and efficient. A special thanks to Dean and Kirsten for your help and hospitality.
I can't wait to go back!

This is a brilliant hotel. It's a very rare find - great location, great staff, great rooms, great breakfasts, but above all the ambience of the place is just right and we felt very relaxed and welcome staying here.

I think I can sum it up by saying that when I go back to Cape Town, I don't think I will want to stay anywhere else.

We had high expectations for the Cape Cadogan based on the pre-trip research we had done and we certainly weren't disappointed. Granted, being upgraded to the stunning Owner's Villa next door didn't hurt but even if we had stayed in the (luxury) room we'd booked, we think our experience would have been equally positive. We loved the location - walking just half a block to Kloof Street with its numerous excellent restaurants and shops - was a big plus after a long day of sightseeing. The personal attention from the staff and the beautifully decorated public rooms made us feel as though we were at a weekend house party. Breakfast on the patio (or inside) was quite good - fresh fruit, cereals, freshly baked muffins, cheese, meats, etc and several choices of cooked breakfast were on offer. Safe parking, too! We would definitely return here in the future!

Cleanliness - spotless and brand new fittings so no complaints. We stayed in one of the apartments a few side streets from the main hotel and it seemed to have recently been finished. All the fittings and decor were very white so imagine they will need a lot of maintenance as so not to look dirty and dated

Location - within walking distance of the major sites and close to Table Mountain. Plenty of places to eat nearby. It couldn't be much better

The apartment we stayed in was on the ground floor, which I didn't like so much although there was plenty of security and a railings surrounding the property. Security aside, it felt a little penned in. If I were to go back I would request a first floor apartment or the main hotel

Rooms - The apartment had everything that we needed and remember thinking that if I had to stay in the city for a number of months it would have been perfect. The kitchen had all the mod cons and was integrated well with the living room, which in turn had a great entertainment system and room to sit around. The bathroom had a wetroom-style shower and the bed was perfectly comfortable. The whole place had plenty of lighting but not a huge amount of natural light, although I think this would have been better had we been on the top floor.

Service - We didn't need a huge amount since we were based in an apartment although security and cleaning was excellent. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and made it their prerogative to get to know us and offer lots of advice on the city.

Value - It provided a value alternative to some of the well-known luxury hotels in the Cape Town.

Sleep quality - no complaints; nice, comfortable bed and quiet room that wasn't overlooked.
