There’s an intangible luxurious quality to a truly great boutique hotel that is hard to replicate in larger chain properties. ‘Boutique’ used to be code for ‘small’, but there are no short cuts to the offerings at some of the Cape’s finest boutique establishments. If anything, the personal attention and discrete service at boutique properties offers greater convenience, substantial style and a more bespoke experience than visitors can expect at larger hotels. There are plenty of great stand-alone and chain hotels in the Cape, but it’s hard to beat the value, service and hyper-local experiences offered by the fine properties on our list of The Seven Best Boutique Hotels in Cape Town & Surrounds.
