The Three Boutique Hotel
Ranked #31 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 January 2016

Oranjezicht is a calm district in Cape Town where the Three Boutique is located. The Hotel is very nice, with charming rooms and very nice employees. They always try to give you the best advice to get out in town. The shuttle is a very comfortable and save service, that brings you to any restaurant and that picks you up on the way home. Don't focus only on the Waterfront, ask at the desk for more traditional restaurants like Mama Africa :-)

Room Tip: upper floor room was a good choice

We had a really warm reception at The Three from Happy and Dominique and during our stay Pieter and Hazvy also really looked after us and created a relaxed ambience, a real credit to the Hotel Team.

The room was comfortable and nice and cool in the crazy 37C heat which made for a good nights sleep (we stayed 3 nights). Breakfasts were very nice and the Zinggy Poached Eggs were fabulous, I would love the recipe! Breakfast staff never quite grasped "can I have 1 egg please!".

We expected the pool to be small but it did not look particularly welcoming during our stay, possibly a problem after the long hot spell? It was a real shame as although I did venture in twice it was a very quick dip!

The taxi service operated by the hotel was a great idea and prices were good.

Before we arrived Pieter kindly organised us a trip to Robben Island which we enjoyed and the hotel gave great restaurant Recommendations.

I have stayed many times at The Three, the oldest house in Gardens, Cape Town and stunningly restored. Located two blocks from Gardens Centre where you can get anything you need, close to the Company Gardens and De Waal Park, its setting is matched by the warm friendliness and extreme helpfulness of its staff. This was the first time my family joined me and by the end of our week's stay we wanted only to stay on at The Three.

Very comfortable room, great breakfasts, strong customer service orientation. Found the honesty system around bar/snacks quite refreshing. 24 hour laundry service was an added plus ...all in all a very pleasant experience

Nice quiet small hotel with good rooms and helpful staff. Transport is available to take you wherever and reasonably priced. Good breakfasts and recommendations for dinner were spot on. Would stay again is visiting central Cape Town.

Room Tip: Ground floor roome available if you have problems with stairs (no lift)

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Old and new meet in perfect harmony at The Three Boutique Hotel, with the conversion of this beautiful National Monument building into a stylish and affordable 18 bedroom boutique hotel in the heart of Cape Town. Owned and run by Justin & Natalia Pearson and their close friends Alun & Julie Jones, the service stands out as being exceptional, from the first email, to collection at the airport and looking after you during your Cape Town holiday or business trip. Steeped in hospitality from years of working on cruise ships, Justin and Natalia embody the perfect hosts. The Three Boutique Hotel fills the gap between a too-homely guest house and an impersonal hotel. It's exactly the right balance of chic surroundings, 4-star facilities and friendly service. The Three is modern and sophisticated Cape Town hotel accommodation with an historic heart in a trendy part of Cape Town. It offers free WiFi throughout, air conditioning, spacious bedrooms with flat screen TVs and en-suite bathrooms. A columned terrace tiled in traditional black and white wraps around the house leading to the designer swimming pool and outdoor lounge. The rooftop deck adds another dimension for sunbathing and sunset drinks, with unparalleled views of Cape Town's three iconic mountains: Table Mountain, Lions Head and Devil's Peak, after which The Three is named. Cape Town International Airport is just 17km away and our airport shuttle can be booked to collect you or drop you off. The hotel shuttle is also available throughout the day for personalized tours as well as in the evenings to take you to and from restaurants. Many of Cape Town's top tourist sights are within walking distance and The Gardens shopping center is just a 3 minute walk. ... more   less
