A stylish, quiet boutique hotel in a great location, with genuinely helpful staff. We arrived early in the morning after an overnight flight, and Nadine could not have been more helpful. She organised our bags, ushered us into the breakfast room to eat and relax and then hunted down a shower we could use in a sister hotel. A very...

We had a lovely stay at The Cape Cadogan. The staff are friendly and helpful but not oppressive. The food is to a very high standard and our room was large, to a very high standard and you could look at Table Mountain from our private balcony.

After a rather rough cruise experience, we were looking forward to a little downtime on land before going home. I did not feel like booking a chain hotel. Cape Town has a lot of lodging options. I picked the Cape Cadogan because it seemed like a really interesting small hotel, intimate and personable. TripAdvisor made it easy for me to...

We recently returned from South Africa and stayed at The Cape Cadogan hotel for 4 nights. The hotel is a small boutique style place with an exceptional staff. They helped us in suggesting where to eat and places to see along with helping us find a camera store to buy a new camera cable when we realized we forgot ours....

The breakfasts are superb and more than you can really eat. The location was perfect for us and within walking distance of many restaurants and sights. Table Mountain is 1 mile away and...

I agree with all writers about this hotel. It is small and very charming. The decor is new and clean, the rooms very stylish and unusual, our breakfast was wonderful and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I couldn't recommend it higher. Also in a good location fir nearby walks and popular restaurants, although some distance from the city...

The Cape Cadogan is a boutique hotel with old-fashioned charm and modern-day luxury. The public areas are a little unusual, but characterful and comfortable. Breakfast could be taken indoors or out, and was of an excellent standard. The lounge was small enough to be cosy. The honesty bar was quite welcome. We stayed in "The Suite". This had a spacious...

we chose this hotel because of it's position just outside the main central area of Cape Town, but close enough in to be able to walk to the V&A and all the nearby sites. The hotel exceeded our expectations in every way; the staff are friendly and efficient and the rooms are comfortable, very well furnished and ours had a...

The Cape Cadogan is an superb boutique hotel for those who do not like big chains. The small grounds are beautiful. The staff are well informed and accommodating. The address is situated along side the very festive Kloof Street, and good restaurants are easy to find when it comes to dinner. The rooms are very clean and well appointed, and...
