This hotel is a little gem, the service from all staff is amazing - nothing is too hard. We stayed in room 10 and it was bright and airy with a view of the table mountain cable car! Breakfast was delicious, a choice of cold buffet and order items from the menu made fresh just for you - much nicer...

Couldn't ask for more during our stay at this boutique property! All of the staff were incredibly delightful, courteous, & friendly from the check-in process throughout our entire time there. They were very knowledgeable when recommending area restaurants & tourist sites. It's centrally located within walking distance of shops, bars, & top restaurants. We loved the decor & the communal...

This boutique bed & breakfast hotel is situated just off Kloof Street with its coffee shops, bars, restaurants, boutiques and galleries and makes a pleasant change from the waterfront area. We booked to stay in room 8 as it was spacious and away from the pool area. It has a huge bathroom and small terrace but the terrace is overlooked...

Excellent hotel and location, really friendly staff. Was a great place to stay in Cape Town and I would happily recommend it to friends and family. The reception staff were very welcoming and had lots of good advice of what to visit/where to eat in Cape Town

We stayed here for our first trip to South Africa. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. They assisted with anything we needed including transfers, dinner recommendations and reservations, purchasing tickets for activities and planning out a day trip. The hotel was spotless and the room we stayed in was quite comfortable with a great view of Table...

The staff was nice and tried to be helpful. The room has limited view and is not close to anything walkable. The room was clean but nothing special. Breakfast was ok and they served tea, sherry and port, as many hotels here do. It is small if you like that feel. Although the staff said it was safe to walk...

Dear Puzzled66,   It was our pleasure to host you at Cape Cadogan, albeit for a full day less than anticipated due to the delayed arrival of your international flight. Having endured a lot of travelling time, and lost luggage, I was only too happy to be able to assist you in arranging for your insurance documentation, and the delivery...

Great little boutique hotel. Off Kloof Street with easy access to Waterfront and restaurants. Rooms are well furnished and very spacious. Excellent breakfast - a combination of buffet and à la carte. Staff is very professional and helpful. Looking forward to our return visit.

We stayed for three nights here on our trip to Cape Town. We arrived a bit frazzled after a delayed flight meant we missed our connecting flight to Cape Town. All that melted away in seconds. The welcome was warm, reassuring and friendly and the room was immaculate. The bed was really comfortable. Breakfast had every food you could need....
