Room is beautiful and always clean, breakfast is full of great options, the Hotel itself is a hidden gem in Cape Town and has easy and convenient walking distance access...

We were originally booked into the V&A Waterfront Hotel, a sister property, and upon our arrival we were notified that we were upgraded to the Dock House. The Dock House staff were very cheerful and helpful. The room we were put in was large and nicely furnished, but didn't have much in the way for a view. We were in...

Very well positioned hotel, very close to the V&A waterfront. Michelle and her staff went that extra mile to be helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent. Great experience sitting in the garden by the pool having a coffee or cool drink. Most excellent visit to Cape Town.

This was our second stay at the Dock House. As ever, we couldn't get over how nice it was to be so close to the V&A waterfront yet be in a distinguished old building with a beautiful private garden. Generally good service but there were a few wee omissions that were rectified as soon as the manager returned from a...

The hotel is centrally located overlooking the V & A Waterfront with wonderful views. The outdoor pool and gardens were well maintained and a very pleasant place to relax after sightseeing. The staff were very friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. We stayed in the suite which was spacious and superbly fitted out with a private patio. We will be...

Many reviews have commented favourably on the the standards offered by this excellent hotel. I endorse them all but for me, the stand out feature of our recent stay to celebrate my wife's birthday were the many personal touches, large and small that made the occasion one that we will truly remember. Michelle Flourie and her team provided a level...

This hotel is not easy to find as it is tucked away on the top of the small hill above the Waterfront and in amongst several other hotels. It is in fact only 2 minutes walk from the Waterfront and the Ferris Wheel. The building used to be the Harbour Master's house and is built in the colonial style with...

The hotel is in a wonderful location , a couple of minutes walk from the V & A waterfront, stunning views of Table Mountain. All the public rooms and bedrooms have been designed by an interior designer and are beautiful. Each bedroom/suite is different. The hotel is part of a group of three close by and guests can eat breakfast...
