The Three Boutique Hotel
Ranked #21 of 111 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 27, 2014

This is the second time we have stayed at the 3 Boutique having enjoyed our stay in 2013 so well. Alan and Julie are now helping Justin and Natalia with running the hotel and our whole stay was very comfortable and stress free. From collection at the airport, through our 4 days at the hotel, to our scenic transfer to our next destination we have a very comfortable stay and made good use of the honesty bar. The location at the foot of Table Mountain is outstanding and the view from the roof terrace is unrivalled in Capetown. We ate in local restaurants in the evening with our favourite being D'Angelos Italian restaurant which is a 10-15 walk up the hill towards Table Mountain. There is also a small shopping centre - called the Garden Centre - about 5 mins walk away from the hotel if you need any snacks/groceries/gifts. I would definitely recommend a stay at the 3 Boutique.

Room Tip: We stayed in 2 rooms - I would recommend the karger which was on the first floor at the end next the...

I can highly recommend this hotell. It's located in a quiet, secure area with a nice view from the top terrace over Table Mountain and the city. The rooms are spacious and clean. Julie and Allan were very welcoming and went out of their way to help. There is a hotel shuttle service and both Allan and Grant who drove us to different places, are good drivers and very service-minded. Sarah, the French girl on her internship, was like a beam of sunlight and spread a good mood whenever she appeared. We wish her all the best for the future, whether in a warm country or in Scotland (...), she's the right person for this profession. Breakfast was a bit slow and the staff there seemed a bit annoyed/reluctant when I ordered the recommended pancakes, but the food was nicely presented, fresh and excellent. Over all, it was a great stay. Try to get room 13, it's a bit more private. There are a couple of nice restaurants just around the corner and Julie and Sarah helped us with reservations.

Room Tip: Room 13 which is a bit more private.

Clean, well equipped and comfortable rooms and a great rooftop terrace with views over the city and of Table Mountain. Easy walking distance of shops although a car or taxi is needed to get to the Waterfront and other central attractions. Felt very safe walking around the area and security is very good. Breakfast service was very slow but I understand measures have been taken to improve that. Alan and Julie were friendly and helpful and their new French intern, Sarah, was charming and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. An ideal base to explore Cape Town.

We stayed with friends just for an overnight stop, but our initial impressions were excellent. We were tired and were offered a complimentary drink of our choice which was most welcome after a long journey. The hotel seemed a little out of the way, but taxis are reasonable and plentiful and the hotel offers a shuttle service. The rooms a re modern and expensively fitted out, with high quality fittings in the bathroom, which had a very large modern rainfall shower.
Breakfast was a little slow, but Justin and Natalia are working on that and were around all the time to ensure things went smoothly. There is even a little pool with sun loungers to relax in. Try it - you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room and our friends had a first floor, but both lovely and modern with beauti...

I was on a golftrip along the west- and eastern Cape and this small, lovely hotel was my first location in South Africa. I was welcomed by Julie and a French student in a very friendly way. My room was spacious , clean and comfortable. The breakfast was just excellent. Julie was extremely helpful when I needed her help. The location of the hotel is vey central with a lovely Italian and Greek restaurant within 10 minutes walking. A small supermarket is just around the corner. I would certainly revisit this hotel and highly recommend it to my friends and my family....it is a pearl in Cape Town !

Charming little hotel in convenient location. Rooms were spacious,clean and well-appointed. Service by all was outstanding. Breakfasts were very slow but the menu was interesting, varied and each item was presented most beautifully. Alan and Julie were very helpful and obliging - Alan even partnered my husband for some of his morning's runs.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Old and new meet in perfect harmony at The Three Boutique Hotel, with the conversion of this beautiful National Monument building into a stylish and affordable 18 bedroom boutique hotel in the heart of Cape Town. Owned and run by Justin & Natalia Pearson and their close friends Alun & Julie Jones, the service stands out as being exceptional, from the first email, to collection at the airport and looking after you during your Cape Town holiday or business trip. Steeped in hospitality from years of working on cruise ships, Justin and Natalia embody the perfect hosts. The Three Boutique Hotel fills the gap between a too-homely guest house and an impersonal hotel. It's exactly the right balance of chic surroundings, 4-star facilities and friendly service. 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. 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
