"Not quite as good as it claims...."
You know when something isn't quite right' When there's nothing glaringly wrong but there are a number of small niggles that detract from what it could be' That's Cape Cadogan Hotel. The location is really good; in fact that's why we chose it. We wanted to be near Kloof Street and it's just off this busy and vibrant road. Of course that means that it's not especially peaceful, but we were not worried about that. The room was a good size, and the bathroom especially was great. But it did look like the room was ready for a bit of a spruce-up. We were however disappointed with some aspects of the service. Our 'welcome' was rushed and incomplete. That's OK if your room contains an info folder to help fill in the blanks, like in most hotels, but it didn't. And breakfast was a bit of a disaster really. We were not alone in being left waiting for ages to be served, or when we were served it was with somebody else's breakfast. It could have been so much better if it were a bit more organised. These might seem like fairly petty grumbles but they add up to a disappointing standard of service that we don't expect to see in a hotel that charges the prices Cape Cadogan does. There were other bits and pieces that I won't spell out here but, like the breakfast issues, they contrived to deliver a less than impressive experience.

"Enjoyed our stay"
Stayed at the Cape for 3 nites in Jan 2017, upgraded to a suite which significantly influenced our pleasure. Great breakfast, very nice and helpful staff, enjoyed the close to Kloof St and Table Mtn location. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.
"Boutique, Unique, Luxury Hotel Just Outside Downtown Cape Town."
Recommended hotel as long as you are not looking to be in the heart of the action of the Cape Town Water Front Area. Taxi ride to eclectic Water Front area was only R80 Rand so not an issue - about 15 minutes. Hotel rooms are first class - luxury from start to finish - It appears each room is uniquely designed to fit renovated building that was purposed for something else in the early 20th century or so. Bathrooms won't disappoint. Terrific inside and outside eating area - with continental and hot breakfasts part of the plan. Gracious staff. Literally sitting in the shadow of table Top mountain - take a look over your shoulder to the right when exiting the hotel! Area around hotel has numerous restaurants so finding a place to eat on arrival is not an issue. Enjoy.
"Stayed 7 nights"
This hotel I would classify as 'Good' not 'Very Good'. Why' Ambience is nice and the staff really pleasant. It's in a bit of a crummy area. Bars and restaurants packed with revellers. The pool is more of a plunge pool measuring 3m x 3m. There are an inadequate number of loungers for guests 'though this area doesn't get all day sun. Our accommodation was 'The Suite' and had it's own pool and deck. The sun goes at about 2 pm. This room's rack rate is in excess of R7,000 for B&B. For this you get an entrance lounge, bedroom and bathroom which is right beside your bed, a configuration I abhor. The toilet is in an obscured glass cubical but very much in the room too. It is called THE PRIVY for a reason and this was not private at all. Also too small, a tall person could easily bash their knees on the door. The bed was OK but the duvet was not of a good quality and neither were there nice soft pillows. You couldn't read a book in bed because the bedside lighting was poorly positioned and dim. It is true that as we were staying 7 nights, the management offered to move us after we'd been there a couple of nights. However, we like outside space and none of the alternatives were good enough to repack and generally mess about. Breakfast was adequate, the poor serving woman struggled to keep up when the room got busy as she was only occasionally assisted by the receptionist. Things like empty pepper mills, half laid tables........
