Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel

Style in spades

A design-led urban retreat in the shadow of Table Mountain

This historic hotel in colourful Cape Town has just 19 rooms, offering an intimate escape from the neighbourhood’s buzzy streets. It’s all about local artisans here, with artworks, crafts and striking pieces of furniture that create a bold but beautiful maximalist aesthetic. Expect emerald greens and distinctive printed wallpapers, accented with gold trimmings. 

The property is perfectly placed for exploring the restaurants and bars on popular Kloof Street, or for getting outdoors and atop Table Mountain, where views of the city are truly awe-inspiring. There’s plenty of pleasure to be found inside the hotel, too, though, with two prettily tiled swimming pools and a handful of loungers that invite you to laze around in the sun for at least a few hours. 

Food here is served in Upper Union, where a carefully curated menu offers seasonal produce by way of small plates and larger dishes, and the cocktails are a highlight for locals and visitors alike.

The impact of your stay:

  • Built in the early 1800s and declared a national monument in 1984, Cape Cadogan underwent a thoughtful restoration to become a stylish city hotel. Retaining the original features, it stands as an iconic symbol of Cape Town, serving as a reminder of the city’s history and cultural heritage.
  • Revenue from Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel supports the More Community Foundation, with a strong emphasis on vital education in the local area. In the Cape Town region, they’ve funded the Injongo Educare Centre, catering to children from the Mfuleni area and providing an after-school care programme for children from neighbouring schools.
  • With every stay, a sustainability levy is directed to the More Community Foundation, which aids in overseeing their sustainability initiatives. These efforts include the elimination of single-use plastics, the establishment of effective recycling systems, and the monthly generation of a sustainability report. This report captures all relevant data and serves as a workshop tool to continuously enhance their environmental impact and reduce their carbon footprint.
