We stayed at this gem of a small hotel for 3 days before boarding a cruise on Silversea from Cape Town. The room was very, very nice and the setting of the hotel in Heritage Square with its intimate outdoor courtyard for breakfast is absolutely delightful. On our second day in Cape Town my wife got food poisoning and the... More

The positive reviews on Trip Advisor are the main reason why I selected Cape Heritage Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa. After staying but a couple of days in the hotel, I was able to see why the hotel received such high appraisals. I stayed in the Luxury Single (during New Years) and the room was more than enough for simply... More

My wife and I stayed for one week in Dec at this wonderful hotel with wonderful staff. Our flight arrived very early (0520), and we were taken to the hotel before 0630. This early arrival wasnot a problem, as we were given a temporary room(105), until our room (112) was ready. Our room was very, very spacious with a (partial)view... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here at the end of November, and it was one of the best hotel we've ever stayed in! The hotel is steeped in history and has been sympathetically restored, retaining much of its original character. The courtyard is a wonderful place to have breakfast, with a beautiful canopy provided by the oldest wine vine in... More

Stayed here with my wife for 4 nights recently and would have no hesitation recommending it to a friend. The hotel has 15 rooms and is located near the city centre in a carefully restored building that dates back over 200 years and seems to have had a variety of uses over that time. The staff are superb and very... More

This is the place in Cape Town for a warm welcome to South Africa. It is not to be missed if you enjoy being treated like a human (and if you return the courtesy) and a friend. Situated in a historic section of Cape Town within easy walking access to most of the main sights and shopping, there's a lot... More

We stayed in a few five star hotels in South Africa, but nothing compared to the sheer loveliness of the Cape Heritage. The welcome was incredible warm, the room we stayed in (one of the suites) was the type of room you dream of finding and the staff were second to none. It was the most fabulous hotel stay I... More

What more can I add to all the other rave reviews posted on this hotel? The hotel is comfortable and stylish; our standard room was better than a deluxe one in many other hotels. The one thing that I will remember for a long time is the friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency of the hotel staff. How I wish they could... More

What more can be said about this delightful place? We could not have been better cared for..... this is Ritz Carlton service without the la-de-da. We loved our charming room, which we occupied for three nights..... we were on the parking lot side, but the noise was never a problem.... even though SA won the rugby world title while we... More

I don't think that we can ever say that we've been looked after as well in a hotel as was the case at the Cape Heritage. Not only management, but every staff member from those on reception to the night porter will attend to your wellbeing and satisfaction in this hotel. We stayed for 6 nights as the first part... More
