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 Hotel seemed to fit my requirements.
You can never be sure if a place will really live up to expectations when you see pictures. The Three Boutique Hotel was even more lovely than any of the pictures could convey. It is an historic building which has been beautifully restored with care and style. It has a colonial feel to it but best of all, it was intimate and friendly without being too intimate and friendly that you don;t feel you have any privacy.
I absolutely loved i. From the roof terrace you have incredible views of Table Mountain and within a few minutes walk, you can be in bars and restaurants. A ten minute walk takes you into old Cape Town which is trendy and quircky and a 60 Rand taxi takes you to the waterfront which is a really fantastic place to spend the day.
South Africa has the reputation of being a place where you have to be very mindful of your personal security and although this is true, the Three Boutique Hotel is in an area which is safe and secure and I feel you can really get the most out of Cape Town.
I would go back in a trice. I was there on business but it is ideal for a holiday too. I perhaps wouldn;t recommend it for families with young children as the pool is small and there wouldn't be enough for them to do but for couples or single people, absolutley ideal! Exquisite and superb value!
