The Cape Heritage Hotel lies right in the heart of the city on the fringe of historic Bo-Kaap area (Malay Quarter). It offers its guests the chance to relive history whilst enjoying the most modern international standards of service and accommodation. Originally an 18th century townhouse dating back to 1771, the hotel is full of character and charm with wide wooden floorboards, high beamed teak ceilings, wide hallways, solid oak doors and large sash windows.
As an integral part of the fashionable and historic Heritage Square, the Cape Heritage Hotel offers direct access to a vibrant community of restaurants, wine merchants, art galleries, jewellers and fine craft and fashion shops. Many of these are located around the 18th century courtyard, which features the oldest known vine in South Africa. This means that you have a choice of five well regarded restaurants right on the hotel’s doorstep.
