Excellent 1st Impression of Cape Town
On our first ever visit to South Africa (it wont be out last) we spent the first 5 nights in Cape Heritage Hotel and we were really sad when it was time to leave it.
We arrived early in the morning, were given a welcome breakfast and before we even finished that, our room was ready to move into which was much appreciated. My partner had had an accident a few weeks before travelling, and we had contemplated cancelling. The staff in the hotel, in their e-mails, convinced us otherwise, and we are so glad they did. They couldnt do enough for us.
From once we arrived we were made to feel at home. Although the location and furnishings of this hotel are excellent, it is its staff (and owner) that undoubtedly make it so special.
Having a wide selection of restaurants in the courtyard of the hotel was very convenient. After day tours, shopping trips etc, and considering my partners limited mobility, it was so handy just to go out the back door of the hotel and be able to choose from a variety of restaurants. We tried most of them and enjoyed dining in them. Its necessary to book for the African Cafe but we didnt have to for any of the others (grant it it was low season) but check in the hotel beforehand and if a booking is required they will make one for you.
Nick, the owner, let us leave some luggage in the hotel while we did a bit of travelling, even though we were not returning to the Cape Heritage Hotel. On picking it up, it was like being greeted by old friends and Nick and his staff came out to see how my partner was doing as he had remained in the taxi minding loads of stuff we had just bought in the market.
After Cape Heritage we stayed in a lovely B&B near Port Elizabeth (Chrislin B&B). On the first night there was only one other couple staying there. We were telling them about the fabulous hotel we had stayed in in Cape Town. They said it sounded very like the hotel they had stayed in, and yes they had stayed in Cape Heritage Hotel for 3 nights, having left it the night before we arrived. They too loved it. Considering Cape Heritage has only something like 15 bedrooms, it was a big coincidence to meet some of its other guests
