Cape Heritage is a great alternative to standard, modern hotels - a charming and comfortable historic place staffed by genuinely friendly and helpful people. Centrally located close to Greenmarket Square it's ideal for the city and its eclectic street and restaurant scene, and the Waterfront is only about a 15 min. walk away. Room was large and extremely comfortable with...

The whole hotel had interesting decorations. Our room was very comfortable. There are many restaurants and points of interest within walking distance of the...

Our stay at the Cape Heritage Hotel couldn't have been better. We received a warm welcome from the friendly, courteous and helpful staff. Our room decor was in keeping with the age of the building, with a modern bath and all amenities. The spacious room was comfortable with a super comfortable bed. We found the area to be quiet after...

The hotel really showcases the age of the building. The people are very helpful and pleasant. A pleasure to be there! The a la carte section of the breakfast has some spectacular dishes. The room I stayed in had serious WiFi connectivity issues. Completely unable to use the network. Also, the restaurant that shares the courtyard has music playing at...

What a gem! Perfectly situated in the centre of Cape Town. Beautifully decorated rooms in a property oozing with character. Six different outlets to choose from . Breakfast is delicious with fresh fruits and a nice choice of cooked options. The only negative we found was that there is quite a lot of road noice, but this is due to...

Breakfast was delicious with numerous choices, fresh fruit,...

Cape Heritage combines 5 star comfort and convenience with the elegance and cosiness of a boutique B&B. Ok, there may not be an iron board, trouser press, phone in the toilet and other silly things apparently needed to get 5 stars, but all these can be arranged for you, "now now", with a smile (although I'm not sure they would...

We were supposed to stay three nights in this very unique, stylish hotel right in the center of town. Decor is fun and trendy, building is old and unique. The problem is that the room faced the courtyard that was shared with a restaurant that had loud music going until midnight or later. We arrived on a Thursday, and was...
