The Three lived up to our expectations - well-located within quick reach of everything yet in a tranquil area. Attentive service at all times without being intrusive. They catered well for our disability needs. There was some building activity and noise in the manager's house next door but management immediately asked if they should have it stopped and/or offered to... More

The Three Boutique Hotel was exactly the type of place we like. Small, intimate, nice staff. The rooftop gave us an incredible view of Devil’s Peak, Table Mountain, Lion’s Head, and Signal Hill — I kept photographing in the early morning and late afternoon. The beds were comfortable, room was an adequate size with a very comfortable bed, two closets,... More

We loved our time at The Three Hotel. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They had wonderful recommendations for activities and were even willing to drive us when needed. The airport transfer was smooth and easy. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we are still missing the delicious breakfasts. Hopefully we'll be able to visit again.

All the glowing reviews here are right on target. The hotel feels like you are staying in the home of your favorite old friends. Julie and Alun and Faith are a great team who go to any length to make your stay perfect. We would definitely return.

We stayed here for 3 nights before and than 3 nights after a trip to a game reserve. Very comfortable and convenient, with a terrific staff. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the Big Red Bus stop and in a safe neighborhood where we didn't have any problems walking at night.

My wife and I stayed at the Three Boutique Hotel for 4 nights in July. Julie and Alun are the managers of the hotel and really bring your entire stay together! The hotel itself is in a great location and provides an intimate feel as there are only 15 rooms. The service is extremely personalized and you truly arrive as... More

I travel with business frequently and am usually put up in very nice hotels but they are often quite impersonal. As I was staying nearly a week, I thought i'd find my own accomodation. I wanted somewhere which was of a high standard, comfortable, stylish and importantly, in an area where I would feel comfortable walking around. The Three Boutique... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Old and new meet in perfect harmony at The Three Boutique Hotel, with the conversion of this beautiful National Monument building into a stylish and affordable 15-bedroom boutique hotel in the heart of Cape Town.Owned and run by Justin & Natalia Pearson and their close friends Alun & Julie Jones, the service stands out as being exceptional, from the first email, to collection at the airport and looking after you during your Cape Town holiday or business trip at The Three Boutique Hotel. Steeped in hospitality from years of working on cruise ships, Justin and Natalia embody the perfect hosts.The Three Boutique Hotel fills the gap between a too-homely guest house and an impersonal hotel; it's exactly the right balance of chic surroundings, 4-star facilities and friendly service. The Three is modern and sophisticated Cape Town hotel accommodation with an historic heart in a trendy part of Cape Town.It offers free Wifi throughout, air conditioning, spacious bedrooms with flatscreen TVs and en-suite bathrooms. A columned terrace tiled in traditional black and white wraps around the house leading to the designer swimming pool and outdoor lounge. The rooftop deck adds another dimension for sunbathing and sunset drinks, with unparalleled views of Cape Town’s three iconic mountains; Table Mountain, Lions Head and Devil’s Peak, after which The Three is named.Cape Town International Airport is just 17km away and our airport shuttle can be booked to collect you or drop you off.The hotel shuttle is also available throughout the day for personalized tours as well as in the evenings to take you to and from restaurants.
