“"Charming and chic"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

A five star experience, in an undersated and personal way. Excellent location, walking distance of most of the City sights. We recommend room two especially for the chandelier alone!! The staff were efficient and very helpful, even finding the right TV channel for me to watch Wales beating Scotland!! The breakfasts excellent, again the staff were great. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed at the Cape Cadogan (upgraded from the More Park, their sister hotel) for 4 days. The hotel was delightful- the staff were exceptional and extremely helpful in every way, the room was large and comfortable, breakfast delicious, lots of nice little extras from the South African sherry in the living room, to the toffee by the bedside. Location was just a short taxi from the centre of town and away from the hustle and bustle.

The hotel was such an improvement on the terrible, expensive, tacky corporate hotels in the centre of town.

The only small negative- some of the pieces of furniture in the bedroom could be improved.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: I have read complaints about noise, not our room which was absolutely silent with a cute terrace ove...

More personal than a chain hotel, the Cape Cadogan made us welcome and wishing we could stay longer. Many dining options in the area, but many of the Cape Town sights are a fair walking distance. Room was very comfortable and staff helped us with parking, luggage and made us feel welcome the moment we arrived. Highly recommended

After an overnight flight from London to Cape Town, we were more than weary, and really appreciated the warm and friendly welcome that we found here. A glass of chilled guava juice was brought whilst we booked in, and although the room we had booked wasn't available that early, another room was made available for us to shower and get changed in, a gesture that was much appreciated. Cape Cadogan is an oasis of calm, and after walking round the city centre, was a lovely place to come back to. Our room was huge and beautifully furnished, with its own courtyard. The bathroom was similarly luxurious. We only stopped here for one night, but the staff were still genuinely helpful and attentive. We would definitely come back and would recommend Cape Cadogan without hesitation to anyone looking for a touch of boutique luxury in Cape Town itself.

Lovely old home converted into a fine hotel in a great location. The staff made the hotel special with very good advice on restaurants, attractions, directions, etc. The shuttle to the waterfront was convenient and the parking was off street if you wanted. The only drawback was the wi-fi service which is currently via voucher from an outside supplier. It wasn't totally reliable. Would recommend they get wi-fi in house as soon as possible to accomodate the modern traveller.
