What a hidden gem....excellent location, beautiful rooms, a very quaint place tucked into the city with a wonderful interior garden/cafe. The staff was kind, attentive and very friendly. Breakfast was awesome! So nice to arrive after a long trip to get there and find a free standing deep bathtub with bath crystals awaiting me...A+++

This is an outstanding hotel. Cape Townnis blessed by many5* hotels, a number of which I know well. The Cape Heritage stands out for its ambience, and the beautiful furniture which is a feature of its rooms. But most of all it stands out for the care, high professionalism, efficiency and warmth of its staff towards all guests and visitors.... More

I love this boutique hotel! We walked in and our bags were taken from us and we were introduced to the staff. I felt as if I were a guest in their home. Our room was spacious with a separate shower and soaking tub. The location is very central and most places are walkable. Also, the breakfast is excellent.

This is a small hotel with a huge heart. The rooms are extremely comfortable and every amenity is provided. I'd have given it five stars but for the noise (on a Friday night) from the bar next door. It wasn't awful, but it was noticeable. The rooms overlooking the courtyard are noisier than the rooms overlooking Bree Street. The real... More
