A low-key but elegant Cape hotel. Bed was super comfy and the room understated but quite comfortable. Then only issue was the slight noise in the hallway near the reception desk which our room happened to be by. Still, as a light sleeper and early riser I didn't have any problem but you might not secure that room if you...

A wonderful courtyard with a small splashpool , sun chairs and lovely plants. The hotel is next to a trendy street with great bars and restaurants , 2...

On a recent visit to South Africa we stayed at The Cape Cadogan on the advice of the travel company who organised our holiday. From the moment we were met at reception, until the time we left, 5 days later, we were pleased at how welcoming the staff were. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we were always...

We got a great first impression from the welcoming staff and the elegantly furnished entrance lobby and lounge. Our bedroom, reached via the small courtyard, was comfortable, clean and spacious with all the usual amenities but the fixtures and fittings were slightly shabby and in need of maintenance. An ample breakfast was served in a pleasant, airy dining room, but...

We only had 3 days in Cape Town, and one of them we had to take respite from both the intensity of the active 10 days up until that point and the incredible rains that turned the gutters to raging torrents. - Cape Cadogan is blessed with warm and welcoming staff, Nicole was our introduction and we had the same...

We chose this hotel after advice from our travel agent who had stayed in the adjacent apartments. This is a stylish and tastefully decorated boutique hotel and has a more personal feel than some of those larger hotels down on the Waterfront. Although a bit out of town taxis are cheap and the hotel does provide a shuttle bus at...

On our previous trip to Cape Town, we stayed at a very lovely B&B in the suburbs. This time, we asked our travel agent to suggest a location closer to the city centre and waterfront. She recommended two large hotels -- plus the Cape Cadogan. Thankfully, we made the right choice! Our 4-day stay at the Cape Cadogan turned out...

My wife and I stayed here for our 5 nights in Cape Town and couldn't have asked for anything better. While there are hotels with nicer rooms and closer to city center, there is not a single place that can touch the service quality of More Quarters. The staff was super attentive, bent over backwards to ensure our stay was...

Nice small hotel on outskirts of city centre area is very comfortable with tantalising views of table mountain and adjacent to Kloof street which leads to vibrant Long street. Great breakfast, but too small to have its own restaurant

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. Insisted that they make dinner reservations for the 5 nights we were there the moment we arrived - all about the food - and their recommendations were great. We had Room 3...
