A comfortable lounge with a cozy fireplace beckons on cooler days while the outdoor swimming pool is the perfect place to unwind when it’s warmer – and it’s a great place to appreciate the views of Table Mountain. Cape Cadogan serves breakfast in a dining room that exudes elegance and overlooks the beautiful gardens and pool.

Without the professional, timeous and effortless support from Zelda and her team this historical event would have been impossible and probably sub-standard. I can highly recommend them for your next event – be it big or small.
