“We Agree - Excellent Choice!”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

We stayed at the Cape Cadogan for five nights following a wonderful safari experience in Botswana. Due to unexpected change in flights, we arrived even later than expected but were greeted warmly and shown to our room. We asked for a different room the next day (odd bathroom, due to constraints on renovations fur to historic nature of property) and were accommodated cheerfully and professionally by the manager. All of the staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. The breakfasts are superb - wonderful fresh fruits (including passion fruit, my favorite!), great choice of yoghurts, meats and cheeses, pastries, and eggs cooked to order and served with a smile. Very nice breakfast area, with some outside seating. Small pool, lovely common rooms. Several nice restaurants within walking distance. I didn't feel well one night, so we ordered food from a service provided by the hotel and the quality f the food was excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms in back are probably quieter.

We were at Cape Cadogan for 5 nights in early March. Room was large and clean with good bed. Bathroom was largest I've ever seen in a hotel (although the doors were slatted for less privacy). Outside porch was delightful with view of Table Mountain. Free internet. Breakfasts were wonderful. Service staff was uniformly friendly and most helpful - especially Yiska who solved a problem for us - spending a fair amount of time doing so. We liked the neighborhood location, convenient to a number of restaurants on Kloof and even to Company Gardens, althogh a fair distance from waterfront. We felt safe at all times, even walking on Kloof after dark. We enjoyed the free afternoon port/sherry. Met a number of other nice guests.

Room Tip: we liked our room (4) with porch and view of Table Mountain

Cant recommend this hotel enough. Great Location, very clean but most of all, friendliness of the staff. Breakfasts were superb, all other facilities, whilst nothing flashy, were all good. If we go back, will make every effort to stay here again

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building were possibly a little quieter than those which were part of the Villa, b...

We just got back from Cape Town. We arrived at the Cape Codigan Friday night, after a six hour drive, in rush hour, and pouring rain. I was exhausted. We were greated at our car, by the door man. He insisted on taking our bags, and getting us settled with a cool drink, and appetizer, while we were registered. It set the pace for the rest of our stay. We were treated like old friends. It is nice to have a base in a new city where it feels like home. the staff could not do enough for us. Make use of the free shuttle to the waterfront. The drop you off at the clock tower, and will pick you up twice a day.
Keep up the good work.

We were upgraded to More Quarters and had a wonderful stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to help us plan our visit.

Our apartment was very clean and nicely appointed and the breakfast delicious. The hotel is also in a great location.

Highly recommend!
