Five star rating. We traveled to South Africa as part of a 30th anniversary present to each other. We stayed at the Cape Cadogan for four days and were thrilled. The staff, especially Kristen, Dade and Andy went out of their way to make us feel at home, help us with plans for shopping, touring, taxi, bags and restaurant recommendations.

We stayed in the "Owners Villa" which was an exceptional property, complete with a full kitchen, private pool area and living room.

The staff would greet us by name and bring us coffee each morning and insure that we felt comfortable with in our surroundings. We felt treated like royalty. We had a bottle of champagne and rose pedals on our bed one night. Each night, they offer sherry or port along with nuts and chocolate.

The hotel property is well maintained and clean, the location is great- a little off the beaten path but close to great shopping and restaurants while being quiet in a residential area. Security is an issue in South Africa but the hotel has 24 hour security and we felt very safe, taking taxis at night. Breakfast was very nice with an ample assortment of cold plates and cooked to order hot items.

Without exception everyone was great and we highly recommend it.

We just returned from a 5 night stay at the Cape Cadogan. We thought it was a lovely boutique hotel. Although, it was away from the waterfront, we were pleased at how close it was to Long St where a lot of the shopping is in Cape Town. It is also around the corner from the Mount Nelson Hotel and we went for high tea one afternoon. Our room was very nice with a newly renovated bathroom. We had a small terrace and opened the door which was nice for fresh air.
The breakfast was abundant and had a large variety of delicious food to choose from. In the evening there are snacks, nuts, chocolate and brandy available in the lovely living room. We used the free internet daily.
The staff is what stands out the most to me. They were extremely attentive, helpful and friendly. The manager, Andrew, was also available and visible daily. It is a peaceful, well run hotel and I would gladly return.

I will preface this review by stating that I stayed at the Cape Cadogan hotel as part of a package with the Lion Sands Ivory Lodge--complimentary two nights deluxe room at the Cape Cadogan when I book my stay in the Sabi Sands Reserve at the Lion Sands Ivory Lodge. I would likely have selected another Capetown hotel were this package not available. In any case the Cape Cadogan is a very nice boutique hotel in the Kloof district, perhaps 10min from the V&A waterfront by taxi. There are a few art dealers, bars, and restaurants along one artery adjacent to the hotel, but overall the area in which the hotel is located appears largely residential. There is no restaurant in this boutique hotel but it does offer a very nice breakfast bar and a choice of omelets/french toast/eggs made to order if desired. The staff, as expected, are very friendly and accomodating. We stayed in room 2, which is a deluxe room with a large garden patio. Apparently the difference between the deluxe and standard rooms are the size of the rooms (we had a small sitting area in ours) and the availability of a large balcony or patio. The decor and furnishings of the room was generally very nice, but I expected a plasma or LCD TV in this day and age for a boutique hotel (the room was equipped with a 19 incher that was probably ten years old). Not that we had much time to watch TV, with all the excursions scheduled around the Capetown area. As for the rest of the hotel, there is use of a laptop with wireless internet in the library, as well as a sitting area near the front gate where sherry and port are offered after 6pm. There is also a small plunge pool in the outdoor patio, but it remained unused by all guests during our stay (due to inclement weather). In short, if one is looking to stay in a a deluxe boutique hotel outside of the waterfront district (where a lot of tourists are), then the Cape Cadogan can be considered a satisfactory choice. However, there are certainly many other hotels in the Capetown area that fit this description, and I would advise due research unless there is a package involved with the Lion Sands Lodge.

This is a small botique hotel/bed and breakfast. It is a bit away from the V&A waterfront--in the city bowl neighborhood. A short cab ride takes you to where you need to be if you cannot find what you want here--though I think one would be happy as a clam here. There are restaurants galore around Kloof Street, and the Nelson Hotel is < 5min walk so you can have drinks or dinner since the Cape Cadogan does not have a bar or evening dinner. They do however have evening cordials and chocolate!! YUM.
The house is well appointed, the rooms large and inviting, the baths are amazing--as well as the products. Each morning there was fresh breakfast ready, and the staff is so friendly and helpful. I will certainly stay there again when my travels take me to Cape Town

We flew down from Johannesburg and were lucky enough to celebrate our first anniversary at The Cape Cadogan.

We booked a fabulous luxury room and really loved it. The room had everything you could ask for inclucing an amazing bathroom with a double shower and seperate double bath! The bedroom was huge with great balcony that had views of table mountain.

The Hotel was situated just outside the city which was just fine for us as it was close enough to the buzz and restaurants etc when you needed it however was far enough away from the city to be not too overly busy and noisy.

Overall the staff were very friendly and full of good recommendations for restaurants and things to do. They also organised us a very nice bottle of South African bubbly in recognition of our anniversary.

As a travelled South African I would recommend this Hotel to any traveller coming to our beautiful country!
