Just left the Cape Cadogan. What a treat! Every member of the staff went out of their way to make you feel special. They could not do enough.

The staff, the beautiful decor, the lovely suite and the extra special honeymoon touches made for a great experience. I do understand other peoples concern about the traffic noise, it was noticeable, but the guest house is so beautiful I wouldn't let... More

Stayed in Room 2 on the ground floor at the Cape Cadogan from 3rd to 9th March. Room was generously proportioned with a large double bed and lounge chairs. Bathroom was huge and after the first day the badly marked wash hand basin was replaced with which we were delighted. The large shower area was great. The patio area was... More

Having visited Cape Town on many occasions it was a great find to come across The Cape Cadogan. This very well appointed hotel which is part of a small group was suggested by friends who had stayed with them not only in Cape Town but at one of their game lodges which they also highly rated.
