This place is lovely, the stuff were fantastic and very accommodating, the breakfast was excellent with a choice of hot food and buffet items, the room we had was excellent with a huge ensuite bathroom and great showers. The location next door to 'Chefs Warehouse' (our favourite restaurant during our stay in SA) was brilliant. My only reservation and reason...

We had a great start to our honeymoon at Cape Heritage. Large comfortable room, with balcony looking into the Heritage square. Hotel is memorably and individually decorated. The hotel staff were very attentive and helped us buy tickets for Table Mountain Cable car in advance saving us a 30 minute wait. Also ready to give advise on walking directions, safe...

There are pretty much 3 areas where (safe) nightlife is happening in Cape Town. Waterfront, Long Street and Bree Street. This hotel is on latter, which has pros and cons. The good thing is, you can enjoy yourself way beyond sunset at some extremely cool locations. Con: others do, too. If you want a noise-free night, don't come here. The...

We stayed here for four nights after flying into Cape Town at the start of a two week holiday. We wanted to be in the city close to restaurants and bars. Location was perfect. Hotel booked us taxis until we realised Uber were in Cape Town as well. Our preference is for small boutique hotels with great character. If you...

Our end of holiday stay at the Cape Heritage truly exceeded all our expectations, and we encourage all to give this great place a try. City centre hotels are often very average, lazy and tired, as they trade on their location and old reputation. The Cape Heritage is totally client-focussed from the moment you approach the steps to this wonderfully...

What an interesting hotel. If, like us, you prefer the 'off the beaten track' type of hotels, then this is for you. The location is central, rooms clean and well furnished and the vibe of the hotel is laid back but still professional with very friendly and helpful staff

The hotel is in an old building which has seen many uses since it was constructed in the 18th century. It is built around a small courtyard,referred to as Heritage Square which has a number of small businesses including a restaurant. Access is only via the hotel as far as I could see. The hotel has the feel of a...

We stayed at Cape Heritage for 4 nights on our Honeymoon whilst exploring Cape Town. Chose it for its location which is really ideal if you are a foodie as it is right near an absolute tonne of nice restaurants. However, when we got there we were really impressed with the hotel as well. We had a 'luxury room' and...
