My husband and I spent 5 nights here in November 2012. The location is good: right in the centre of town and in easy walking distance to the Waterfront (15/20 min walk). The hotel rooms are stunning- beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The bathroom was modern and luxurious. The staff are all friendly and keen to make sure you enjoy their city, by recommending and booking restaurants and tickets online for city attractions. We went up Signal hill one evening to watch the sunset, and the hotel staff organised a picnic for us. This was a great way to spend an evening and I highly reccomend it. The hotel has a rooftop jacuzzi: a great way to relax after a day of sightseeing! Breakfast in the hotel is served outside in a beautiful courtyard. There was always a good cooked option for breakfast, although the breakfast choice was generally a bit limited. This isn't really a problem though, as the food in Cape Town generally is outstanding! Compared to eating out in the UK, it's so cheap and yet such good quality. Lots of people worry about their safety in Cape Town, but we felt fine walking around during daylight. In the evening we took taxi's from the Waterfront, which were also pretty cheap.
I can't imagine a better place to stay in Cape Town than the Cape Heritage Hotel. It's upmarket, relaxing and full of character. I highly recommend it.
