The Sugar Hotel is well located near the Waterfront in Cape Town. its designer interior and relaxed atmosphere make it a great destination for business and leisure traveller alike. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with a luxury en-suite. Breakfast overlooking the pool was a very relaxed affair. A long friendly conversation with the chef was followed by a sumptuous meal that left you in no doubt that you had chosen the right hotel for your stay.

My wife and I wanted to avoid a big corporate monolith and found this lovely boutique hotel.
We were a little fearful about such a small place and didn't know the city well enough to judge the location, bet decided to take a flyer on it. We were very happy with our choice!
It is a modern gem in a nice little neighborhood, close enough to the main parts of Cape Town (ie., the waterfront and all the shops) to easily walk there.
The rooms were modern and spacious, extremely well maintained, and had all the amenities we wanted. The robes were very special, as were the thick oversized towels. We loved the blue lights in the bathroom floor.
Breakfast was included and was cooked to order and was a gourmet treat each morning.
Best of all was the wonderful service we received from everyone on the hotel staff. They went the extra mile to help with problems we were having with our airline reservations, gave us recommendations for dining and printed out menus and maps, set us up with touring options, and got us taxis with the best fares (they are not regulated and not all taxis charged the same amount).
I would not hesitate to stay there again on our next visit to Cape Town.

We were here for five days and the Sugar Hotel was perfect for us in every way. The location to the clubs at night and a short walking distance to the Waterfront. After my late night arrival the next morning when we went for breakfast it was a very nice surprise. It was uncomplicated but definitely gourmet. It was excellent.

The staff was very attentive and strived to met our needs. We certainly felt comfortable and at home. The hotel staff took care of every detail from arranging our international calls, taxis, personally handling our transfers to arranging our spa treatment without making us feel as though we were bothering them like most big hotels.

The bathroom tub was a dream. Used it almost every afternoon after doing our sightseeing. I really cannot say enough about the whole experience.

Very few rooms > quiet. Place very clean. Kind staff.
Breakfast can be better: expensive and very few choices > try outside.
Couldn't try my private tiny swimming pool (winter season).

My wife and i changed hotels after the first night, we moved to sugar for the remaining 7 nights of our stay and were more than satisfied. the rooms were so relaxing, the staff were perfect and extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast. well the best i have ever had at any hotel. Any body who has stayed here will understand what im saying with the food and service. Location is perfect, 5-10minute walk to the waterfront, 5-10 min to the city, it too us about 25min to the gardens. Thank you very much to all the staff that assisted us and provided the best personal service I think we have ever enjoyed.

We stayed here for one night while we were visiting Cape Town and we were very impressed with this hotel. We arrived late in the evening and had to make some last minute changes to our travel plans and we found that the staff was very friendly and accomodating. The rooms were stylish and clean. The breakfast was great. The location is good. Overall, this hotel is a great value.

We loved this quaint little hotel. The staff went out of their way to attend to us and we found the location and smallness of the hotel fabulous. If you like big chains this is not for you, but if you like small boutique hotels with an edgy design and very friendly staff, this is it.
I found this hotel on the luxury hotel website, luxury group because we were looking for only the very good properties for our first visit to South Africa. Book well in advance as this is a limited capacity hotel. Internet connection in the room can be touchy !
