Expert review of Cape Heritage Hotel

You'll love the location in the heart of the city and its authentic antique-laced interior.

Housed in a sensitively restored historical townhouse in the centre of the city, this hotel lives up to its heritage name. Antiques abound, paint techniques suggest a time-worn patina and pretty details like chandeliers are easy on the eye - the addition of the occasional contemporary piece of South African artwork brings things straight into the 21st century. With a small but efficient team of staff, guests are encouraged to interact with the city and with a buzzing wine bar and numerous shops and eateries on the hotel's doorstep, this couldn't be easier. I love the home-from-home atmosphere and the no-fuss feeling of this small hotel.

Location: 

In the heart of the city, safe to walk to and from and in walking distance of many shops, restaurants and tourist sights.

Bedrooms: 

The spacious bedrooms are laced with antiques and hints of African charm. The entire hotel was refurbished a few years ago and the newer contemporary details (eg in the bathrooms) combine well with the high ceilings, oversized faded Persian rugs and antiquey details, from four poster beds to impressive wardrobes.
