We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very courteous and helpful, even long after our stay was over. The rooms were clean, and they made quite probably the best French toast that I’ve ever had in my life!

Over the past few years the courtyard surrounding the Cape Heritage hotel has been developed as a buzzing social hub with a number of places to eat, an art gallery, gin tasting venue etc; as a consequence the rooms can be rather noisy on busy evenings. If a little noise is not a problem, then I highly recommend this hotel. We love this hotel which is why we always stay here when we visit Cape Town (this was our third stay). The Cape Heritage is great value for money; has an ideal central Cape Town location; the rooms are stunning - all are individually designed and complement the historic setting; the hotel staff are friendly and could not do more to help; and breakfast is delicious (it is an event in itself). Thank you for looking after us so well. We WILL be back.

All the comfort of a large hotel in a unique and personal setting. Easy walk to waterfront and top restaurants and bars on the doorstep. Staff friendly and always welcoming throughout our 4 nights with breakfast in the courtyard a highlight. Would only ever chose to stay here again on returning. We hired a car for the last day from central CT to discover the Cape and coastline before using it to continue our trip (and ultimately drop at the airport) and there is secure parking opposite.
