My husband and I started our honeymoon in Cape Town and I did a lot of research on hotels in the area before booking the Cape Heritage. The hotel did not disappoint. It is a gorgeous old building impeccably restored with unique artwork and playful touches throughout. We had a huge comfortable room with a bathroom the size of my apartment featuring 2 rainfall showers and a stand alone bath tub. Bliss. The hotel is centrally located in the city and also connects to a courtyard with an assortment of restaurants (which is also helpful b/c we were advised not to wander around the city after dark). HQ or Headquarters was our personal favorite. Skip African Cafe and head to Mama AFrica on Long St. instead.
The Cape Heritage Hotel staff was extremely welcoming and courteous at all times. They helped us arrange for a pick up from the airport and day trips with a tour guide. The hotel also offers an incredible breakfast with warm and cold options. I cannot eat gluten and they made special provisions for me by purchasing gluten free bread which I could enjoy with my eggs for breakfast.
On our last night at the hotel we returned to our room after a day of sightseeing and found a beautiful rose petal trail to the bathroom and champagne chilling by the tub. The staff hadn't said anything to us but left this beautiful display for us to discover. So thoughtful!
We hope to return to Cape Town in the future and when we do we will definitely stay at the Cape Heritage again!
