Our first taste of South Africa couldn't be better... Cape Heritage gave us an unforgettable welcome. The room was amazing, very comfortable, rich of details and accurated. The atmosphere is warm and the staff makes you feel like at home. Breakfast is amazing! We hope to come back!

Everything about our stay at the Cape Heritage Hotel was perfect. The staff is amazing -- so personal and friendly. The breakfast is to die for ... A generous selection of buffet items, including cheeses, homemade granola, yummy breads, pastries, fresh fruit, and much much more. And on top of that, a full hot breakfast menu to order from, just... More

Excellent location, within walking distance from the vibrant cafes, restaurants, shops, bars and clubs of Long Street and surrounding areas. Daily continental breakfast available in the quirky dining room (limited seating), or better still enjoy alfresco in the quaint courtyard. The use of a wonderful... More

I would most certainly recommend this hotel if you wish to stay in the city centre. It is full of history ( as in one of the oldest buildings in Cape Town) and close to all the amenities of Cape Town. The staff were most helpful and friendly.

Great boutique hotel in a great part of town! Staff was wonderful, friendly and so helpful! Our room was large and charming, complete with a giant soaker tub in the bathroom. My husband and I were there for two nights (Saturday-Monday). The street itself is relatively quiet with some great eateries, lounges and bars all within walking distance. Places such... More

Oozing charm and character, the hotel is a fitting and authentic introduction to Cape Town. The service is excellent, the rooms are unique and the food good . Our welcome was warm and friendly and the hotel day tour of the area, delivered by Domingos Travel was breath taking, informative and entertaining

The hotel is charming and comfortable. We felt welcome from the minute we walked in. The staff was very accommodating and offered great suggestions of what we could do on foot in the central area. The intimate atmosphere at breakfast made for great conversations with other guests. We were delighted with our stay.

I have to agree with the recent reviews that this is a fabulous hotel. I stayed there with my two grown up children and we all fell in love with the place. It's very nearly perfect . Rooms are spacious and well furnished with comfortable beds. Common areas are great, and the staff are super friendly, accommodating and helpful. I... More
