I absolutely loved my stay at Heritage Square Hotel and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Cape Town. I actually live in Cape Town and have booked at the last minute as my husband was having an operation at the hospital next door. From the moment I phoned (after enquiring about the room) through a subsequent booking including email...

I have now stayed at the hotel twice and have found the rooms both superior, and standard, to be excellent, within what is a really old building with lots of character. The rooms are thoughtfully themed, the beds are extremely comfortable and the attention to detail is a real treat. Whilst the location is in the city centre it is...

We spent three nights here while in Cape Town and really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is brilliantly located to be able to get around easily. The rooms are all individually themed which makes it quite a charming hotel. The staff were also really helpful in organising our stay. There's also a jacuzzi on the roof, which sounded appealing, but we...

A very enjoyable two-night stay in a clean, spacious and comfortable city centre hotel. The room was African-themed and well-appointed, with a beautiful bathroom. Breakfast was well-cooked, and evening meals were taken in a nearby restaurant across the Courtyard. The doors to any un-occupied rooms are left open, and all of the rooms are individually designed and equally delightful. The...

Wonderful hotel, each room has it's own individual character. Beautiful atmoshphere, staff very friendly. I especially enjoyed the breakfasts in the courtyard. The location is very central.. Street noise can be a problem but I found it added to the charm.

I have travelled to more than 130 cities in the world and stayed in many many hotels, guesthouses, lodges etc. of top and medium ranks. But our stay in Cape Heritage definitely ranks amongst the top 10 (or even top 5). The building is beautiful and one of the oldest in Cape town, it is tastefully decorated with a mix...

This hotel is like a Hotel du Vin of Cape Town, and would have received a fulsome 5 blob rating from me for its ambience, beautiful rooms, large bathrooms with separate showers, little treats and delightful welcome and friendly response to requests. BUT... ..I was in Room 115 on a Friday night and around 9pm a loud disco beat started...
