My husband and I stayed here recently for four nights as part of a tour. No complaints whatsoever! We had a Table Mountain View room, absolutely stunning! The location is fabulous! We had many enjoyable walks in the gardens opposite. We walked to the V and A several times but it is quite far, I think maybe a mile and...

We stayed for ten days in February 2017 and found the hotel to be very good, lovely comfortable beds and linen. The breakfast was excellent service a bit slow but all staff had a smile. The hotel arranged trips and taxis with great efficiency. A great situation opposite the gardens and very central. I would highly recommend this hotel

A self confessed hotel geek, I was inquisitive to experience the Cape Hollow Boutique. From the get go I knew it was the right decision, I loved that the hotel offered a personalized reservation experience and felt very comfortable dealing with Jessica and trusted the information was accurate. Upon my arrival I was met by the hotel driver Aslem who...

We staying at Cape Town Hollow for a few nights in February 2017. We were early to check in but that wasn't a problem as straight away we were asked if we wanted to leave our luggage in a safe place until the room was ready so that we could either go and explore or go and have a drink,...

We stayed here for five nights and found it good value. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. It was really central for all the museum but also within walking distance of Long street and Bree street which have loads of great bars and restaurants. The food probably wasn't as amazing as some of the other restaurants in Cape Town...

Difficult to fault our stay at the Cape Town Hollow, which suited our requirements perfectly. The location is great for restaurants & bars around town, staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are comfortable, breakfast just fine and there's parking just across the road. All for, by Cape Town standards, a very reasonable rack rate.

Stayed here for three days on a business trip. It did the job very nicely with an excellent location, friendly and helpful staff and clean and good rooms. Breakfast was nice too. We booked a guide and car through the hotel to take us to the wine lands and he was excellent.

During my Forth Birthday celebration my better half took me on trip that included visiting Cape Town. Wow, this place is amazing and what better place to spend a few nights then right in the heart of town at the Cape Town Hollow Boutique Hotel. The hotel location is amazing, right over the road from Iziko South African Museum and...

Very welcoming and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Delicious breakfast - continental, fried or cereal. Excellent restaurant. Very useful free shuttle to the Waterfront. Good location next to Long Street and the museums, opposite the lovely Company Gardens. We had a walk there most mornings.
