Cape Cadogan

Cape Cadogan

Combining historic charm with contemporary style, Cape Cadogan is a wonderful boutique hotel in Cape Town, Africa’s most visited tourist area. With roots dating back to the early 19th century, the original building was a residence before being used as commercial office space for many years. In 2003, with the help of a dedicated team, the old world charm of the building reemerged, and the hotel has become one of Cape Town’s most unique destinations.

Now recognized as a national monument, Cape Cadogan charms guests with its classic interiors, world-class service, and highly personalized guest experience. Hotel amenities include an elegant lounge, open fireplace, garden, pool, library, and computer terminal. Guests relish the delicious full breakfast every morning and look forward to dining in one of Cape Town’s fine restaurants in the evening. Recommendations and in-room dining can be arranged by the accommodating staff.

Whether choosing one of the six luxury en-suite bedrooms that include an outdoor area and lounge or one of the six standard en-suite bedrooms, guests are pleasantly surprised by the exceptional service and bohemian chic décor. The Presidential Suite is a luxurious retreat offering a lounge, kitchen, private pool, and courtyard. Other amenities servicing every room are satellite TV, DVD player, complimentary WiFi, air conditioning, safe, personal bar and fridge, and tea/coffee maker.

Cape Cadogan’s high standards for personalized service extend to introducing you to the wonders of Cape Town. The City Bowl, the central amphitheater-shaped area of Cape Town, is bounded on one side by Table Bay and on the other by dramatic peaks: Table Mountain, Devil’s Peak, Lion’s Head, and Signal Hill. A Mediterranean climate, rugged mountains, considerable coastline, inland valleys, coastal plains, and semi-desert fringes make it comparable to southern California, so travel and exploration are possible year-round. Any visit to Cape Town should involve a visit to one of the many beaches. Their close proximity to each other even allows for several different beach visits in a single day.

Cape Town’s most notable and visited attraction is the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Built on top of a portion of the docks at the port of Cape Town, it continues to function as a working dock, and visitors can watch ships come and go. The V&A, as it is locally known, also boasts hundreds of shops and is a departing point for ferries to Hout Bay, Simon’s Town, the Cape Fur Seal colony, and Robben Island, location of the Nelson Mandela Gateway.

The city’s extensive transport system transports guests to other exciting venues and cultural attractions such as Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, Artscape Theatre Centre, Cape Winelands, and Cape Town Stadium, a 2010 FIFA World Cup venue. Dolphin and whale watching are also popular tourist attractions.
