Three Boutiques is ideally located with excellent views of the mountains. We were able to take advantage of the hop on / hop off excursion bus to explore Cape Town easily. The stop to get on is a close 10 minute walk from the inn.
Although rooms are a wee bit tiny, that can be expected as it is a very old, original estate home that has been renovated. The bathrooms were lovely and well appointed.
Alan and Julie, the resident managers, are easy going and pleasant to deal with. Upon arrival we were given information on sight seeing, helpful suggestions and maps of Cape Town. On one of our days, rather than book an outside excursion, we took advantage of the "in-house" tour option - basically that involved hiring their car with Alan as our guide for the day. We pretty much planned out what we wanted to see and he obliged. That worked out beautifully for us as we were not with a group and we could be more specific in where we wanted to go (with some excellent help and suggestions from Alan).
Breakfast was a mix of self serve and table service with an adequate choice of items.
The honor bar is a great feature. Beer, wine, and other beverages and snacks are available on an honor system and not overly priced like many hotels.
The rooftop patio has great views and is a lovely spot to sit at the end of a busy day with a beverage and admire the view. It was a bit too windy when we were there to take full advantage of this, but it is still a definite plus for the hotel.
I would definitely recommend the Three Boutique Hotel.

The Three is modern and sophisticated Cape Town hotel accommodation with an historic heart in a trendy part of Cape Town. It offers free WiFi throughout, air conditioning, spacious bedrooms with flat screen TVs and en-suite bathrooms.

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.
