if you are after location in Cape Town then this hotel will suit as it is close to the Promenade in one direction and restaurants in the other. If you intend to spend time in your room or are looking for a room with a view then Cascades might disappoint. While the room was spotless and well appointed it was... More

The location is close to the promenade but set back enough to avoid the noise. Sea view rooms are great if you can get them, but the others are dark and have no view at all. Even the ones that claim to have a terrace really just have a space between the door and the outside wall. The rooms are... More

Cascades Boutique Hotel surpassed our expectations. This hotel has an abundance of flair, masterful skilled staff and warm attentive owner presence. it oozes fineness and eminence.... The restaurant is also a winner!

Striving for perfection, Luc and Else’s Cascades on the Promenade is a vacation home away from home. Each guest room in the seven-room BnB is sleek and snazzy, with cutting-edge electronics (including wifi and desktop Apple computers), modern bathrooms, room lighting, and comfortable beds. Some rooms also have large balconies with views of the ocean. And yet, what makes the... More

Cascades is a fantastic hotel and was our home base in Cape Town for 4 nights and I couldn't have been happier. I was a bit worried at first since many of the reviews on here said the rooms were super small. So I was imaging like tiny--if you have ever stayed at Yotel in NYC you know what a... More

Having regularly enjoyed the Cascades wonderful breakfast on the deck when visiting Cape Town it seemed to be a good idea to stay in the hotel on our next visit. The current owner completely renovated the hotel froma dilapidated boarding house unto a beautiful six bedroomed boutique hotel. Our room was perfectly furnished and equipped with a large terrace.

I had breakfast at the Cascades at the Promenade restaurant. We sat outside (they have blankets if it becomes a bit chilly) and I had the Eggs Benedict. It was delicious! Service was good, great spot for brunch on your way exploring Sea Point or inbetween Sea Point and Cape Town.

My usual Cape Town place was booked up for the night, so I just needed one night before moving over to the other place. I found Cascades on TripAdvisor as being a top-rated hotel and significantly cheaper than the others with similar reviews. The hotel was lovely. The room was a little on the small side, but you don't want... More

Really magnificent place to stay in Cape Town. Close to the Promenade stretch and My Citi bus route stop. Beautiful and cosy rooms. Breakfast was one the best I've experienced in a long time. The muffins and croissants, just divine!
