The hotel was named ‘The Three Boutique Hotel’ for being Number Three Flower Street, and for the three iconic Cape Town views best seen from the roof terrace; Table Mountain, Lions Head and Devil’s Peak. The hotel is known as a National monument as it was once occupied by the Commandant of the Castle General Robert J. Gordon, who commanded the Dutch forces in South Africa. The Three Boutique Hotel has been awarded by Trip Advisor a Certificate Certificate of Excellence in 2012.
