This personal and boutique hotel is operated by very kind people who are passionate about their job. the rooms we stayed in was ridiculously over sized by all hotel standards (a very nice surprise), combining modern features and comfortable settings. The location is central, easily accessible and good connections to nearby attractions. proximity to the marina is a bonus.

A little boutique hotel in the Garden area in a good location with walking access to many good restaurants. We had Room #2 which is nicely decorated, large and comfortable. All the rooms offer WI-FI and Rik was most accommodating and helpful with making reservation and getting us tickets. While the bathroom is a designer’s delight, it is not very... More

The location of Cape Cadogan is great if you want to stay near the city. Kloof Street with it's many restaurants is a short walk away. I would suggest coffee and cake at Mellisas, lunch at Tamboerswinkel, high tea at the Mount Nelson and dinner at Saigon, all just around the corner. The room is extremely luxurious and the staff...

We planned a trip for our 25th Wedding anniversary and wanted a small, personal hotel. Cape Cadogan meet every requirement we wanted. Friendly staff, who could not do enough for you. Great location, fantastic rooms. Go for the luxury rooms, they are just spectacular!! Staying there was an absolute delight and I was sad to leave.

When you first walk in to this hotel you really do feel at home, it's so peaceful and everyone is so friendly that you immediately feel relaxed. We arrived very early to the hotel after an overnight flight and we were very kindly checked straight into our room which was really great. The staff couldnt have been any more helpful,... More

This is a true boutique hotel in the Gardens district of Cape Town. The staff is as professional and helpful as any I have ever encountered. The room we had was wonderful - roomy, clean, spa bath, outdoor seating area with a private fountain. Fantastic. The Gardens is a lively area with a number of good to very good restaurants... More

It is centrally located just off Kloof, and within walking distance of the beautiful Community Gardens, along which are the South African Art Museum, National Library, and other cultural sites. The best features of this charming property are the common areas which are beautifully... More

When we arrived Amber spoke to us about what activities we would like to do, where we would like to eat etc and subsequently booked us on the appropriate tours and made restaurant reservations which was great! All of the staff here were extremely welcoming and... More
