The Tudor Hotel is much more than just a place to stay - it's an experience: Situated right in the heart of the city on historic Greenmarket Square, it is the oldest hotel in Cape Town.
Of course we're proud of our heritage, and while 'old' adds atmosphere, it does not mean 'old-fashioned'. When it comes to creature comforts, the recently refurbished Tudor Hotel is second to none. This combination of contemporary finishes and the historic face of the city makes for a stylish and refreshing hotel experience - at very affordable rates.
At The Tudor Hotel everyone is special, and to make sure you feel right at home, each room has been furnished in its own unique style. All our rooms are en-suite, have colour television, tea & coffee making facilities and for your comfort the rooms are equipped with ceiling fans, while some air-conditioned rooms are available on request.
While you may be tempted to spend more time in our hotel than is strictly necessary, there's an entire city out there waiting to be discovered: So, if you're interested in taking day trips, cruises or brief organised excursions, our Reception staff will gladly make arrangements for you.
For those who prefer to make their own way, we have secure undercover parking available just a block away from the hotel - and secure safety deposit boxes at Reception.
If you do decide to stay in and put your feet up, you are welcome to relax in our lounge and page through our selection of daily newspapers. And when it comes to sheer indulgence, our full buffet breakfast is not to be missed. Light lunches can also be ordered and if it's a tempting teatime treat you're after, you don't have to look any further than our restaurant.

House of Parliament
This guided tour of Parliament includes historical background and a synopsis on how Parliament works. Here you can witness debates by decision makers from the public galleries, or attend a hearing or a committee meeting.
Castle of Good Hope
The Castle of Good Hope is the oldest building in South Africa.
It is also the only remaining outpost of the old Dutch East Indian Company still managed and run as a military base. As South Africa's oldest building, it is a symbol of the birth of Western civilisation on the subcontinent. The castle was completed in 1679 - its purpose, to protect the new settlement from possible attack. Back then, the ocean used to crash against the two south facing walls, effectively making this castle a functional fort.
One of Jan van Riebeeck's first tasks after coming ashore at Table Bay in April 1652, was to create a vegetable garden one which would feed the Cape's first permanent European settlement. This humble patch of ground flourishes to this day and remains one of South Africa's most attractive and otanically interesting city parks.
District Six Museum
The aim of the District Six Museum is to ensure that the history of forced removals lives on in the minds of all South Africans. The museum is curator of, and manages a collection of historical materials, fine prints and paintings, artifacts, photographic images, books and audio-visual recordings, most of which were donated by the ex-residents of District Six.
V & A Waterfront
One of Cape Town's biggest tourist attractions. Much of its charm comes from the fact that, surrounded by a huge, authentically styled entertainment venue with pubs, restaurants, speciality shops, craft markets, theatres and movies, lies a busy commercial harbour.
About 12 kilometres north of Cape Town, Robben Island has over the years become synonymous with the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. Now a World Heritage Site, it has come to symbolise, not only for South Africa, but also for the entire world, the triumph of the human spirit over enormous hardship and adversity.
Table Mountain Aerial Cableway
Table Mountain - a World Heritage Site - is a sandstone plateau towering over the Cape Flats. The top is approximately 3km wide, and at its highest point, Maclears Beacon, rises to 1085m above sea-level. Over the centuries it has become one of South Africa's most famous landmarks. The summit can be reached by trails or via cable-car. The latter was recently redesigned and
revamped and boasts a revolving floor for panoramic viewing.
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens
Beautifully situated on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, these world-renowned gardens are dedicated to the preservation of the indigenous plants of Southern Africa. Some 6 000 different species are grown here, including ancient cycads and many species of Protea, Erica, Pelargoniums and Ferns.
One of the Cape's main attractions is undoubtedly the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve at Cape Point. Noted for its floral diversity, the reserve presents a spectacular coastline, with Cape Point boasting the highest sea cliffs in South Africa. From this lofty vantage point, you can witness the meeting of the
