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 …

Cape winelands, Stellenbosch area

... that Cape Town has turned on.

Near Paarl we visited the impressive Mandela statue outside the Drakenstein correctional facility where he spent the last 14 months of his prison life, and insisted on walking out alone when he was finally released in Feb 1990.

Next we stopped at Franschhoek, a very trendy little wine village, where we walked the street up and down, past shops, churches, cafes, and soaked up ...

Cape Town Part 1: Are We Still in Africa?

A travel blog entry by pauljkuhne


... English at the hostel, and went out to one of Obz' (the super hip abbreviation for the Observatory) coolest bar pizza places. The place was a giant terrace that served up pizzas, including pies with avocado, and delicious beers, and was absolutely teeming with students. Normally most Americans would be sadly disappointed hanging out with three people from France, but I really enjoyed the conversation and loved hearing everyone's stories about why they were in Cape ...

... took us through the striking hills of Spitzkoppe area of Namibia. This area is one of the traditional stopping grounds for the San Bushmen in their travels, and there are many areas of park where their rock drawings can be found which provided direction to other San Bushmen about the route, available game and water in the area, etc. The paintings date back over 3,000 years.

Regretably, Intrepid had cut the stay here back to only one night, so after ...

... under her fluffy belly. The look on the care worker's face was priceless. Beyond the leg issue, she had a mass on her chest, bed sores, HOH, diabetes, and a 5 year old dislocated shoulder that just hung there. Poor thing:( I wish I knew how to set it.
We decided to do a little something for all the community volunteers at Manenberg township to show them how amazing they are and how much they are appreciated by us and the community. These ...

    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.

    An excellent choice!


    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.

    An Absolute Delight


    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.

    Exceptional service is what makes this boutique hotel special


    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.

    Just wonderful


    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.

    Loved It!


    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!

    Simply Stunning!


    The Cape Cadogen, `Where guest are our priviledge'- A hotel where they sure do mean it and live up to their mantra!

    Chic and cheerful in Cape Town


    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.
