My husband and I stayed at Cape Cadogan for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon. It was breathtakingly beautiful and chic. The service was immaculate and personal. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. The rooms were exceptionally spacious and comfortable (the bathroom was pure luxury!), cleanliness was to the highest degree, and the decor extremely tasteful. The hotel is also well located amongst a strip of local restaurants. We really thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful little hotel. It rates as one of the best hotels i have ever stayed at.
Enjoy!

My wife & I recently spent three nights in Cape Town, South Africa on
business & having been to that fine city on numerous occassions, & being somewhat jaundiced & tired of staying in large hotels, we were looking for boutique accommodation in an easy -to-get-to & secure location, with good amenities close by.

After scouring countless websites we chose the Cape Cadogan, which is located on Upper Union Street, not a short block from the ´trendy´
Kloof restaurant district.

As we were to find out the many choices of quality dining are close-by, down Upper Union Street no more than 50m to the corner one is confronted by a wonderful seafood restaurant, then there´s an equally
marvellous Italian restaurant on Kloof, only a short stroll a block up the main road at most .

And the Cape Cadogan property - well, what a superb boutique historic hotel it truly is.

Small, intimate to the point of giving the ambiance of a private ´home´ this historically protected location has a beautifully chosen colour scheme & design of fixtures & fittings; wonderfully appointed serene public areas( the library which has a guest PC internet set-up & a seperate guest lounge); delightful breakfast area with seating inside, or out on the patio amongst wild olive trees with a garden styled setting overlooking the plunge pool.

Breakfast consisiting of platter after platter of fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, fresh squeezed fruit juices, cold meat selections & cheeses set out on a sumptious buffet, then a cooked selection of choices of any styled eggs, tomatoes, bacon, sausages & mushrooms that one orders a la carte with tea, coffee & croissants or toast, is included in the nightly tarriff & in itself was more than sufficient that you certainly don´t feel like indulging in eating lunch.

In all the property has 11 guests rooms & an adjacent ´owners cottage´.

We stayed in Room #3, a downstairs location which has a huge canopy bed & a bathroom you could pratically hold a basketball game in it is so big, along with a full sized 2m bathtub, twin his & her side-by-side basins & a walk in shower complete with an L shaped tiled seat around two sides & two of the old style ´deluge´ showerheads.

Quite aside from the many personal amenities provided in the bathroom, the huge old fashioned showerheads are a very welcome plus after we in the past, have suffered all too many hotel ´drip´ showerheads that barely dispense water to a third of your body.

Our bedroom & bathroom both had a 3.5m high ´old-style´ ceiling & they opened onto a high-walled encased private patio, with a table & chairs & small tinkling fountain.

It´s the ´little special touches´ that Cape Cadogan offers which are the sorts of things we seasoned travellers will remember - such as every evening a decanter of port brandy & another of sherry & a platter of gloriously displayed chocolates (so nicely presented it was almost to the point you didn´t want to disturb the platter - but we did!) is set up in the guest lounge for residents.

And the Cape Cadogan staff - in a word ´amazing´ from Reception to breakfast area, service staff & Management alike. Attentive to one´s every need with a charm & personalized grace that in so many places in our all too busy world, is long a thing of the past.

To quote but one example, on the morning we arrived & were checking in, my wife split a tooth in half, chewing on a candy. She was in agony & that was at 1100hrs. Now truly, where else in the world would you have a Duty Manager take charge & ring their own personal dentist, to effect have my wife seated in his studio chair at 1130hrs, undergoing emergency treatment ?

As we had a rental vehicle we found Cape Cadogan an ideal secure location in-so-much-as it provided easy parking either directly outside or, in the property driveway. They have a doorman who is on duty 24 x 7 so irrespective of how late we returned, there was somebody there to meet you.

From our perspective Cape Cadogan is a glorious boutique property that ´over-delivered´ every single thing it displays on it´s website & so much more.

To be sure it is a place that based on our wonderful 4 days & 3 nights we wish to herald as being a true ´hidden gem´ & if your travels take you to Cape Town, South Africa & you are a discerning traveller who has had quite enough of the big impersonal chain hotels & you are looking for some long overdue pampering, then Cape Cadogan we would suggest is ideal for you.

A real gem hidden away from the bustle of Cape Town's busy main streets but in turn, within walking distance of them. The main building is a great colonial house that has been sympathetically modernised to a very high standard and then ouside are a couple of mediterranean style courtyards flanking the stunning Owners Villa. The room was fantastic with high ceilings and one of the best bathrooms you`ll find in a hotel. This has to be the closest you'll get to a classic british 5* Town House hotel in Africa!! Really is a great place to stay.

The Cape Cadogan almost can't be called a hotel. It is a very efficient, stylish, comfortable little gem in the heart of Cape Town. Perfect for visits to Cape-town - be they business or pleasure. The minute you arrive at the entrance you just wish this was your house and your home - and you you are made to feel as if its when you are warmly greeted inside. The rooms are sunny and spacious with everything you can possibly want, with no extra clutter - plenty of plugs for hairdryers, computers and ADSL internet connection etc. Breakfast is served either in the dining room, but preferably in the garden. One can walk straight out of the door into the city centre - but strangely there is no traffic noise. Space to sit and wait for someone or meet someone in the library or sitting room. The Cape Cadogan feels very personal and private, but provides a perfect city base. It is possible to park you car outside and the very helpful girls at the desk will find out anything you need to know. One of the nicest things is to be able to walk out into Kloof Street to a fantastic choice of restaurants - no drink/ drive problems here! One of the easiest nicest places to stay in Cape Town.

My husband and I stayed at Cape Cadogan for five nights as part of our honeymoon in South Africa. This is a beautiful property - both in terms of its public areas and rooms. We stayed in room 8 which was the largest room we have ever stayed in! Staff at the hotel were very welcoming and extremly knowlegable about the area. Location wise this hotel couldn't be better, a 5 min taxi trip to the V&A Waterfront and 5 mins from Camps Bay, within walking distance there are also a number of great places to eat on Kloof Street. We will certainaly choose to stay here again and if you're looking for a little luxury, with personal service in a boutique hotel this is the choice for you.
