After a 2 week trip in South Africa, we opted to spend our last night here after staying at a few top tier hotels. The service we received at Cape Heritage rivaled the top tier hotels and even far exceeded a particular hotel that we stayed at in the V&A Waterfront. The rooms are well decorated, clean and unique.

My wife and I stayed at the Cape Heritage for the second time, and in the same room, because we enjoyed our first time in 2010 so much. The hotel did not disappoint, all the staff were as helpful as possible. The breakfasts are excellent. We are not too keen on the waterfront, it almost could be anywhere in the...

We had five nights at the Cape Heritage and really enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is in a good location close to Long Street and Bo Kaap and not far from anywhere by taxi. Would definitely recommend It.

Cape Town is a wonderful city, but there are only a few places there that feel like home. Cape Heritage Hotel is the very best place in town. Every room is beautiful and every room is new. Super comfortable bed, lots of extra pillows -- fluffy and firm -- and every room is different. This 19th century building had been...

We travel all over the world and spend approximately two months out of the year in hotels, yet rarely are we impressed enough to write a review. The Cape Heritage Hotel was so perfect that I feel compelled to share the word. Perfect location in the City Bowl. Several very cool eateries/bars on the same block. Rooms are spacious, tastefully...

Staff kindly agreed to upgrade us for our honeymoon to a larger room with a balcony, and then surprised us with bottle of champagne and decorated bathroom! Hotel was primely located to many restaurants and local site-seeing in center town...just wish we had warmer weather to take advantage of the roof-top jacuzzi! Great stay!

Excellent interiors and staff, very good location, spirit of old country. Breakfast could be better, but still good. In spite it is not close to the Waterfront it is worth to stay there to see the heart of Cape Town.

This historic hotel was saved from the wrecking ball along with a full block of chic restaurants and shops and is now a nice place to get to all the sights in central city.
