Cape Cadogan - The Details
A charming luxury hotel in the heart of ‘Capetonians’ Cape Town. The Gardens area has a great local atmosphere and provides a perfect base from which to explore Cape Town’s sights. There are plenty of boutiques, fashionable bars and restaurants within walking distance of this hotel.
Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront are a short drive away (10 mins), whilst the Clifton beaches are a 15 minute drive away. It is therefore very conveniently located for exploring this fabulous city from.
This villa style hotel is small, but luxurious and very well designed. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the various courtyards create a spacious and tranquil environment for guests. There is also a swimming pool and terrace set within the hotel gardens.
Service at the Cape Cadogan is impeccable and you feel more like you are at home than a guest in a hotel. We think that the personalised service and friendly faces make all the difference, and this, Cape Cadogan has in abundance.
More Quarters - The Details
Behind Cape Cadogan is a fantastic boutique hotel called More Quarters. This collection of converted townhouses along a cobbled lane provides a great place to stay. The apartments are spacious, elegant and luxurious.
For families, the four two-bedroom apartments are perfect for spending time together and whilst More does not have its own swimming pool, guests staying here can make use of Cape Cadogan's pool.
Although More is not based on the waterfront, the hotel does offer a complimentary shuttle service will take you and pick you up from the V&A Waterfront or as far as Camps Bay, but make sure you book this upon arrival as space in the shuttle bus can get filled very qucikly.
Whether you choose More Quarters or Cape Cadogan as your hotel, a minimum of three nights is needed in Cape Town to make the most of the city and its surrounding areas.
There really is so much to do here, from the plethora of shops, bars and restaurants to the day trips to the Cape of Good Hope and into the winelands. If you are feeling adventurous, then activities like sky diving are also on offer which make for great adrenaline pumping adventures.
If you have a spare couple of days then heading out of Cape Town and staying in the winelands should certainly not be overlooked. Whether you choose the renovated, but still functional, farmhouse of Babylonstoren
, or the oppulent and lavish La Residence
, you can be certain that the food and drink on offer will astound you. It is some of the best in the world!
In a typical South Africa itinerary, a Cape Town stay would come after your safari. This is just so you can rest and relax after lots of late nights and early mornings, but for those travelling from differing time zones, a leisurely stay in Cape Town at the start of the trip is the perfect way to recover from a long flight and sleep off any jet lag.
