I had a fantastic stay. The rooms are superb. Some of them are very large with king size beds. The staff is very nice. They advised very good restaurants. Very informal atmosphere. I did my work in the kitchen. No complaints at all.

My first visit to Cape Town. Historic building. Located well for walking to Bo Kaap Museum, District Six, Greenmarket Square, Company's Garden, Long St, etc. The staff here are very attentive and caring. The hotel has two great sitting rooms (one with a beautiful fireplace) with books and DVDs as well as a lovely courtyard (thought it was too rainy...

I just wanted to take a moment to express my extreme approval for the staff, hotel decor and overall excellent experience I recieved while staying at your hotel. The beauty and history of the hotel was beyond belief. Just a ultimate "wow" factor. The rooms were beautiful, large and nicely furnished. The staff was extremely polite and helpful and made...

I just love this hotel! This is my first visit to Cape Town and indeed to South Africa so I can't say with authority that it is the best place to stay, but it certainly suited our purposes. I am not sure that I can say anything that hasn't been said already. We had 2 rooms -101 that had a...

Dear Guest Thank you for all your lovely comments. We are very proud of our staff and had fun decorating each room in a unique manner. Regarding the charity : I apologise you were not informed at check-in that we support the Zip Zap Children’s Circus via an optional levy on the room account. As a company we are passionate...

Second time at Cape Heritage Hotel, obviously not the last. A charming place with old-style decorations, rooms are amazing and the quality of service is very high (for instance for organizing tours in and outside Cape Town).

I travel to Cape Town frequently on business and pleasure, and always find the service and setting of the Cape Heritage to be a perfect base. Right by the central business district, safe to walk around, great restaurants at your doorstep, and easy road access to all the best sights. The rooms are spacious, the grounds are fantastic, and the...

This hotel resembles a well-kept museum of Cape Town some 50 years ago. Rooms and corridors are full of antique pieces of furniture, pictures and statuettes arranged in a very pleasing manner. The staff is friendly and helpful and the location is a 5 minute walk from the City center with busy Long Street. Breakfast is delicious and there are...

Having arrived in Cape Town off the Rovos Rail, we were pleasantly surprised by the Cape Heritage. If you want to be in the crowds of the waterfront or a large, modern hotel with many amenities, this is not for you. However, if you appreciate historic preservation, a smaller intimate hotel in a historic house witha very attentive staff, being...

I stayed here for several nights while extending a business trip to explore Cape Town. The hotel overall is full of character and history, with an appealing courtyard. My room was quiet, clean, comfortable and decorated with charm. Bathroom was huge. A fairly simple but nice breakfast is available. Staff were very helpful in arranging a private winery tour. Easy...

Great value for money in terms of location, size and standard of rooms and service from all staff. Felt like welcome guests That's the end of my review but apparently I have to make up space until I hit 200 characters which I think is ridiculous. Is this high school am I doing an English lit essay?
