I have tried hard to find something negative to say about this place, and I am normally good at that. Theres allways something you can crtisize - but at Cape Heritage there is none! The house is one of the oldest remaining buildings in downtown CT and the restauration of it is done respectfully and with very good taste. The...

Stayed for 7 nights in total and as we went away on overnight trips we stayed in 3 rooms- the great thing is every room is different but all very comfortable and unique. The staff were very helpful, arranging car hire, tickets etc and giving general advice. Breakfast was really good- buffet and/or a choice of cooked breakfasts.Easy to get...

This is a Boutique Hotel with real character, each room is different unlike so many modern hotels where it looks as though they came off a mass production line. The service offered by the staff is excellent, nothing is too much trouble. Although a taxi ride away from the Waterfront there are excellent restaurants within a few yards across an...

We had a wonderful stay at the very inviting Cape Heritage Hotel. The staff was very warm & friendly, and the breakfasts were great. The hotel is a short cab ride (also walkable) to the V&A waterfront and and easy walk to a bevy of shops and restaurants. In fact, there were a couple of great restaurants on the same...

I was a solo traveler staying for both work and fun, and Cape Heritage was the perfect spot. Extremely comfortable room and amenities, including a great shower and tub. The staff was warm and helpful. The free wireless internet was fast and reliable, and the included breakfast was also great. Just steps from fantastic restaurants and bars. I won't stay...

Three nights at the Cape Heritage was a real delight. From individual quirky comfortable rooms to the excellent helpful staff who fell over themselve to go the extra mile, my stay was made very enjoyable.

General: If you are looking for a charming character hotel in Central Cape Town with easy parking and lots of restaurants within metres not minutes walking then this is for you. On arrival I parked directly outside the hotel in order to find out where the car parking was and to off load my luggage. I then returned and put...

After a lot of searching and reading reviews about diff. hotels I decided to try Cape Heritage. I am a frequent traveller and have seen many hotels and must say this hotel felt like home and left nothing to complain about. The rooms are individually decorated and the garden looks fabulous and cosy. The staff are very friendly and help...

We were in Cape Town in February and booked to stay at Cape Heritage Hotel thanks to the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. For those who like old architecture, antique furniture and the old world charm (with modern conveniences) I would highly recommend it. Also, the staff were very helpful right through our stay there. Other than...
