So we have made it to Cape Town and wow is there everything here in one city. The place we are staying is absolutely wonderful and everything is over the top but in a perfect way. Today we went to Table mountain, the waterfront and saw so many fish.... 5/10 It's Saturday and we are going to the museum and other good tourists attractions. We are …
... a close. I really have barely scratched the surface of this huge, impossibly complicated, impressive, screwed up and amazing country. I spent just about all my time in a single province, and at that, I just barely got a taste of it. There are very few cities in the world where I can spend ten days as a tourist and still leave with a long list of major attractions and sights unseen. Cape Town is one of them.
After all, this is a stunningly beautiful city ...
... other than a big dent in the car's side, everyone seemed to be okay when we passed them.
Namibia is a very wealthy country - assets of which include oil, gold, diamonds, zinc, uranium - but as with most African countries, there is also a massive amount of corruption, so the populace is either very rich or VERY poor. On our way to Roy's Camp in Grootfontein, we passed many private game reserves owned by extremely wealthy - mostly white - families.
I decided to get back into the swing of running and went for a two mile run with our group of four. We showered right when we got back and headed to our placement! Our first patient was a long walk away. We were told that we were going to the "Beverly Hills" of Manenberg. The first woman was bed ridden because she had been hit by a car; she also had a catheter. Her sons and sister were responsible for her, yet she said she never wanted to leave bed. When we arrived ...
... Clock Tower, Robben Island Museum, a closer look at the gigantic Coca Cola Crate Man and most importantly, the Victoria Wharf Shopping Mall. Wow! This Mall had everything from designer stores to cinemas. I promised myself I’d have to come back here and look more closely at their advertised 400 shops! Hehehe!
By now, I kind of knew my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Cape Cadogan Cape Town
Small but well formed......
Lovely, small boutique style hotel with extremely good staff. A little way out from the main sights of the city but everything is within a cheap taxi ride. A few good restaurants and bars within 10 minutes walk and the area is safe.
Nice bedrooms with fantastic bathrooms - we had a walk-in double shower / wet room with a glazed wall looking into a private courtyard.
TV, DVD, etc. with films on reception. Free internet and we were always welcomed with a drink on returning from our days out. Breakfast is good but service can be a bit erratic.
Nice small plunge pool in a central courtyard with sunloungers.
Probably won't suit you if you like hotel chains, but full of character and we were made to feel very welcome.
Our first time to South Africa and therefore relied on the expert advice of our travel agent 'Definitive Africa'. The service and welcome at The Cape Cadogan was exceptional; nothing too much trouble. This is a fairly small, boutique hotel but they could teach the big boys a thing or too about attentive service and luxurious accommodations! We had a lovely room overlooking the secluded courtyard garden (with a plunge pool) and views to the rear of Table Mountain. Lovely bathroom including a massive bath with quality toiletries, towels, robes and slippers. Good location for plentiful, local restaurants; they have an album of menus and will listen to what you fancy for dinner and then make a recommendation - they then call the Manager directly to make a reservation to ensure their guests are given special attention - we were even picked up at the hotel by a restaurateur who was on her way in to work. Only stayed for two nights but a great stay nonetheless.
The service in this hotel is as good as you could find anywhere. The reception staff greet you by name & on arrival you are always offered a drink (an evening sherry in the library became a favourite of mine). The dining room staff at breakfast are also pleasant & efficient.
We selected the Cape Cadogan after reading the reviews on here. Budget wasn't a factor, we just wanted a classy hotel which wasn't impersonal.
After 4 nights at the Arabella Sheraton (5*) I thought a few nights at a smaller character property would be a nice way to round out my remaining time in Cape Town.
We spent a week at the Cape Cadogan in November following two weeks on safari in Namibia and spent the time smiling at our good fortune. We arrived late and couldn't believe the level of luxury that awaited us. We had a lovely room on the ground floor that had just everything including a DVD player. We enjoyed the fresh flowers, the helpfulness of the staff, the delicious breakfasts and the astonishing views of Table Mountain. The Cape Cadogan has been created out of a fine double fronted old house and unlike so much in Cape Town access does not involve a steep street. It has a small but lovely plunge pool and in terms of design and detail the owners have clearly been prepared to go that extra mile and it has certainly paid off. It is just moments from Kloof Street where there are many interesting small shops and restaurants, and the main touris attractions are all within a long walk or a short taxi ride. Public transport in Cape Town is a problem for tourists but taxis were inexpensive. Hotel, boutique B&B? Difficult to know but excellent value and so luxurious!!!! We cannot wait to go back. They have also recently opened several adjacent self catering units to the same standard, and these could be a desirable alternative.
Stayed for 3 nights in October. Excellent boutique hotel, close to great restaurants/bars. Good value for money
We took a weekend winter getaway to Cape Town and stayed at the Cape Cadogan. Well, this place is stunning, besides being 5-star, the decor is really beautiful and very up to date. None of that big hotel mass styling, everything is original and the attention to detail is stunning. Quality, quality, quality!
The Cape Cadogen, `Where guest are our priviledge'- A hotel where they sure do mean it and live up to their mantra!
We were looking for a hotel in Cape Town with a bit of class without the astronomical price tag associated with Cape Grace or Table Bay. Photos of the Cape Cadogan and an off season price of R900 per night for room and breakfast got my interest. It is not on the Waterfront, but is just round the corner from the famous Mount Nelson Hotel, which has not exactly suffered from its position closer to Table Mountain.
