We started and ended our wonderful 2 weeks in SA at the Cape Heritage, arriving 3 March 2008. The hotel dates back to 1771, is small (only 15 bedrooms) and personal. The staff are super friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The buffet breakfast of cereal, fruit, cold meats, cheese, fruit juice, cooked breakfast (the best scrambled eggs in SA) coffee/tea, toast/croissant/preserves etc is more than adequate and is served either indoors or outside in the courtyard. Some of the bedrooms overlook a main road but didn't prove too noisy and after midnight virtually no noise at all. We were only a short stroll away from the local market square selling a multitude of handmade crafts of varying quality, and a 30 minute walk down to the V&A waterfront (they say 20 mins and 3/4 km but there are quite a number of busy roads to cross and we never made it in under 30 mins-not really a problem-ask the staff to call a taxi for you if you aren't up to it). The hotel is B&B only so we ate next door at the Caveau (access through the hotel) every night and weren't disappointed once. Cape Heritage is due to close for a short time in June this year for refurbishments and will then provide a sundeck (one thing that we missed was having somewhere sit out in the sun with a book/drink after returning from a busy day) but apart from that, can't really fault this hotel at all.
