Cape Heritage Hotel *

Afro-Edwardian luxury
Opened in 2007, this small hotel anchors a rehabbed 17th century block of shops, restaurants and offices between the Bo-Kaap and Long Street's bars and shopping. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interiors are extraordinary. And the owners redecorate compulsively: every year, the place looks entirely different. No garden, but breakfast (included) is served in the block's open-air central terrace, which reputedly houses the oldest grape vine in South Africa. Warm, dignified personal service. The Caveaux Deli in the complex offers gourmet snacks; alas, it and most of the restos in the complex are closed Sundays, so you have to do some advance planning.

    Utter luxury, Four poster bed, oriental rugs and old prints, huge beaded sheep; they make it all work and it's heavenly. Minibar full of yummy local treats.
