Arrived early morning after a very long flight and was offered a drink straight away, our room wasn't quite ready but we didn't expect it to be, we did however check in much earlier than advertised. We emailed in advance and used their airport transfer which was great value and stress free. The hotel and our room was so full...

Anyone who appreciates history and the elegance of a bygone era, the friendliest and most helpful staff, a cosy and comfortable room and fine breakfasts will absolutely love the Cape Heritage Hotel. We certainly did. The location is perfect for the city centre with great restaurants all around and the Waterfront is just minutes away.

From the moment of arrival we were treated with extraordinary hospitality by Sam and her colleagues. The hotel is a wonderful example of a bygone era in terms of architecture and furniture but has been treated with great taste to provide a fascinating bedroom suite and bathroom. We enjoyed a healthy breakfast in the open internal patio facing the oldest...

We stayed at the Cape Heritage Hotel on our honeymoon in January 2014 and it was absolutely stellar. The building itself has so much character - all wooden floorboards and charming, rustic decor - and is located in an absolutely perfect little cobblestone square with restaurants all around it. Cape Town's famous Long Street is a block down from the...

if you want to stay in central Cape Town in a hotel with character, look no further. We stayed in a standard room as everything else was taken. We were not disappointed it was tastefully decorated with a great bathroom. Don't stay if you want a quiet getaway, the floor boards are noisy as your neighbours walk around or kids...

We were searching for a hotel that could remind us the old colonial southafrica. We didn' t want to sleep in a big central modern hotel. We wanted to smell some colonial air.. and here we are. It was the best choice for us. Highly recommanded.

I can say that, without a shadow of doubt, this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Close to the City centre, the room my wife and I had was lovely with all the amenities that we required. The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered and they could not have done more to assist us...

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The place is absolutely the perfect location with lots of restaurants within a 5 minute walk. In fact, there are at least 4 places to eat that are attached to the hotel, all seemed very nice.The people working at this hotel went above and beyond the call of duty to make...
