Cape Heritage Hotel is a wonderful gem, hidden on Bree street but well worth searching out. You get all the benefit of staying in a hotel, but also the feeling that you are in a place where people care about your well being and your comfort. The staff couldn't be nicer, the place is spotless, rooms are well maintained and... More

Our stay here was a lovely end to our honeymoon. The service was impeccable, nothing was too much trouble, and the hotel was decorated beautifully, with some local art and traditional decor. Our room was stunning- a good size, lovely accessories with a huge bathroom. The bathroom had a bathtub in the middle of the room, double sinks and a... More

What an adorable boutique hotel!! Ideally situated in the center of Capetown, it is delightfully charming. This was one of our stops on our honeymoon and we could not have asked for a more adorable place to stay. Our room was well appointed, the concierge was incredibly helpful, and the breakfast was OUT of this world.

The Cape Heritage is the perfect blend of modern amenities and antique charm. Once you walk in the door you are greeted by a warm and welcoming staff. My visit was in the winter, so it was nice to have a warm fire burning in one of the waiting areas. My bags were taken to my room as I checked... More

Rooms were brilliant - large, clean, well decorated, everything you needed AND it all worked. Staff could not be more helpful and polite. Hotel well placed for tourist in Cape Town. Tastefully decorated with quirky, locally produced pieces of art (we bought some ourselves from StreetWired just down the road). Several VERY GOOD restaurants all part of the same Heritage... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Cape Heritage Hotel, at the beginning of our trip to South Africa and one night at the end. We have a toddler so it is best for us to have accomodation with cooking facilities, but this is the ideal hotel. It has so much STYLE... Someone put so much love into it, as evidenced... More

We are a family of four that just came back from a week here, and it was fabulous! The staff were extremely friendly and the hotel was clean and comfortable for all of us. The only thing I can complain about was the walking route to the V&A Waterfront (a waterfront plaza full of shopping and restaurants) had us going... More

Great how the different buildings were reconstructed into a larger hotel with a great ambiance, mixing historic atmosphere, Cape Town heritage and modern / young vibe. The rooms are all individually styled and different. The various (styled) restaurants underneath the complex give this an excellent style! Also the open area inside the complex for breakfast and diners is very nice.

As relative locals we decided to treat ourselves (and my husband for his birthday) to a night in the city. It was definitely an excellent choice, centrally located in the heart of the city. A brisk walk and you'd be in the centre of the hustle and bustle of the nightlife, but distant enough that it doesn't deprive you of... More

This hotel is great. It is charming (classic beautiful and clean property), and most of all - the staff is extremely nice and generous. They helped us in any way they could (they even compared taxi prices for us). The location is great - around 5 or more good restaurants are in the same block and bukaap is right across... More
