Built as a private home in 1771, this friendly, attractive, well-run hotel is part of the Heritage Square development and as such has direct access to a host of restaurants and a couple of shops. Teak-beamed ceilings and foot-wide yellowwood floorboards echo the building's gracious past, and the spacious rooms are individually decorated. Some have four-poster beds, others exposed brickwork, but each has its own special charm. Rooms overlooking the pleasant courtyard—complete with tables sheltered by what is claimed to be the oldest grapevine in South Africa—may be a little noisy, but the revelry stops at midnight sharp, when the bar quits serving. Parking is across the street in a section of a public lot with good security.
