The Cape Heritage Hotel is a lovely central 4 star hotel. Lots of character and history. Our room was very nice, spacious and very well decorated. Staff were helpful and breakfast was great. I would definitely recommend it.

This is a great hotel located in the heart of Cape Town. We stayed for a week during March 2014. It has a genuine boutique feel with only a small number of rooms set amongst a converted historic building. Most of Cape Town's tourist attractions are within easy reach and the V&A Waterfront is a simple 15 minute walk away....

We stayed for 8 nights late February and this was our 7th stay since 2006..... no negatives and endorse the numerous positive reviews. Bree Street is increasingly an excellent location as a base for tourists, with high quality dining options within walking distance. The adjacent staffed car park with reserved bays is another benefit as parking in Cape Town (as...

Picturesque hotel with lots of charm, wonderful staff and beautiful rooms. The breakfast was varied and tasty. The only downside is that our rooms were above the bar/restaurant entrance (rooms 111/112) and on a Thursday and Friday night there were a a lot of noisy drinkers and the windows are too thin. One night our non smoking room had a...

Had room 107 which was enormous with a huge 4 poster comfy bed, sofa, massive bathroom with huge bath with view of mountains. Service impeccable and great bars and...

We spent three nights at the Cape Heritage Hotel. People were friendly and very helpful. It was right around the corner form the Hop On Hop Off bus stop, which we found to be a great way to see Cape Town for the first time! The room was comfortable, and we loved the artwork throughout the hotel. We enjoyed the...

The Cape Heritage was recommended to us by friends and we stayed for four nights. I had some reservations as the hotel is in the downtown area and does not have a pool. However, from the moment we arrived until the moment we left we could not have been better looked after. The service was wonderful and attentive. The hotel...

This is one of the best city hotels I have ever stayed at. With a penchant for character, I have always been drawn to historic hotels. This is not without its risks – think musty curtains, dodgy plumbing, creaking stairs and dark, pokey rooms. Not this one. I don’t quite know how they have done it, but the Cape Heritage...
