Hotel staff are incredibly nice and helpful, they are not just "available" to help but they are always proactive in trying to make their guests' experience very special. Rooms are very comfortable and the hotel has a "house" feel, we truly enjoyed our stay and warmly recommend it

This small boutique hotel was perfect for our Cape Town stay. The building is beautiful, but the staff sets this hotel apart from many of the others at which we have stayed. They were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The hotel is in a good location – away from the tourist crush but with convenient access to the major...

We stayed at The Cape Cadogan while touring South Africa and were delighted with it. It was our home while in Capetown and has a great location. Just a few steps away you can see Tabletop Mountain. There was a wonderful lounge to have drinks with our friends before setting off during the evening. The outdoor dining for breakfast was...

I spent four nights at The Cape Cadogan Hotel during May, 2013. It is a beautiful property that is well run and provides lovely service to travellers needing a home away from home. I had a deluxe room that offered plenty of space for the in-room therapist who gave me some beauty treatments during my stay. I was very happy...

We stayed at the Cape Cadogan for two nights during our honeymoon in South Africa. It was a beautiful hotel with very friendly service.

We stayed here at the start of our honeymoon and this was our base for exploring Cape Town. It was a lovely spot. Friendly, but not in your face, clean, spacious room with huge bath. It was easy to travel to and from the waterfront in the free hotel taxi and the area it is in has some trendy cafes...
