“Best place to stay in CT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2011

Lovely place. A lot of history in the building and very well renovated. Beautiful decorated luxurous rooms.
Nice pool and a great sundeck on the roof with fantastic view on the Table Mountain..
Perfectly situated to visit town either by foot (15 min walk) or by car.
Natalia is a very friendly host. Kids loved the cat and the ladies (personnel).
We stayed at the Three Boutique Hotel for 4 nights, one minor point was the breakfast with too less variation in it.
Nevertheless a hidden gem.

I am an American who has lived in Cape Town and Durban and travels to Cape Town regularly for business and pleasure both. I have stayed in many fine places from Newlands to Camps Bay, but nowhere finer, friendlier, more professional and stylish than the three. There are many, but Three's the One! Run with aplomb by former cruise professionals, it has the immaculate excellence of a ship in ship shape. Redesigned by the famous architectural firm that did the Athol Fugard Theatre, it is a small boutique hotel which made magic of the oldest building at the edge of town between Gardens and Oranjezicht, retaining old brick within an elegant modernist design. Proprieters Justin and Natalia make this perfectly simplified boutique into a place that feels for the solo traveller, couple on honeymoon or travelling family like home. I know, I've seen them all happy here, and who wouldn't be when two blocks from The Three is Gardens Center, or alternately De Waal Park, or the Reservoir, or Orange Street which in minutes leads you anywhere. I shall return with as many friends as I can muster.

Located in a quiet part of Cape Town. The property is an historic manor and dates back to 1740. It has been stylishly renovated with no expence spared. The rooms have fantastic bathrooms and king size beds, flat screen tv's etc. Panoramic sky deck and also nice pool area. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Highly recommended for a Cape Town stay.

I have just returned to the UK after staying here and it was perfect from beginning to end. Natalia and Justin, the owners are so lovely and will do anything to help, from helpful tips about the area to helping us with our luggage and a good chat! The hotel is stunning, espescially the roof terrace where you have spectacular views of table mountain and lion's head - it was pure bliss sitting up there watching the sun go down! The whole hotel is very classy (without being pretentious) and the pool area has the most comfortable deck chairs and sofa area ever!
The rooms were spotlessly clean with excellent power showers and a super comfy bed and widescreen tv.
Location is ideal, just 5 mins stroll away from Mount Nelson hotel where you can jump on the red and blue bus tours. You're about 10 mins by taxi to all of the local attactions, so its really central.
We had such a brilliant time here, I can't recommend it highly enough, more hotels should be like this one!!!

Room Tip: hairdryers, great shampoo and conditioner in rooms

Great place to stay, Justin and Natalia are very friendly, welcoming hosts who ensured everything was as requested. Rooms were clean, very modern, comfortable and safe above all.

Great place for an afternoon jog, just up the hill and the house is close enough to get to the waterfront in 5mins by car. Definitely a choice for my next business trip or even timeout with my lady.

The just renovated Flower Villa was the perfect base camp for our Cape Town holiday.
It is close to the center, but very quiet.
Our room was very beautiful and spacious.
We especially enjoyed our swim in the stylish pool before the yummie breakfast, the fantastic skydeck: you can see from Tablemountain all the way to Signal Hill! and of course the very friendly and caring hosts Justin and Natalia - who told us about the best playes to go in the city and the most beautiful beaches around town.
Always they had a smile on their lips when our five year old boy got a little too excited.
We hope to return very soon to this wonderful oasis!

This lovely residence formed a very convenient base for my time in Cape Town. Situated in a quiet but convenient part of the City, with a 15 minute walk into the centre, through Company Gardens. Justin, Natalia and Kingsley were really welcoming, and adaptable to my needs. The rooftop terrace is a great vantage point from which to check the changing moods of Table Mountain, and there is also the balcony and the pool area in which to chill out. Broadband was fast and easy.

A columned terrace tiled in traditional black and white wraps around the house leading to the designer swimming pool and outdoor lounge. The rooftop deck adds another dimension for sunbathing and sunset drinks, with unparalleled views of Cape Town's three iconic mountains: Table Mountain, Lions Head and Devil's Peak, after which The Three is named. Cape Town International Airport is just 17km away and our airport shuttle can be booked to collect you or drop you off. The hotel shuttle is also available throughout the day for personalized tours as well as in the evenings to take you to and from restaurants. Many of Cape Town's top tourist sights are within walking distance and The Gardens shopping center is just a 3 minute walk. ... more   less
