“Best Hotel in Cape Town.”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

We just returned from four days at the Dock house and it was wonderful. Perfect location on the waterfront, beautiful big rooms in a smaller, intimate hotel, and very helpful staff. Can't say enough good things.

You've probably found the Dock House because you are picky. Good choice. The V & A is a waste of space, commerical, contrived rubbish (Liverpool 1). Ok for an hour while you aclimatise.

Dock House, Rooms Dreamy, Breakfast Superb, Garden and Pool lovverly. Staff A plus

Try Camps Bay for a safe fun day OR night out. Taxis are A OK.

What a lucky find this boutique hotel was. With only 6 rooms it was a calm place to return to each day -at least on those days that we could bear to leave it! Our room on the first floor was beautiful with fabulous decor and furnishings. The bathroom was a spa in itself. The finishing touch was the long verandah where we enjoyed sitting with a sparkling glass at sun down and watching the ferris wheel turning as it presided over the V&A waterfront.
The staff were unfailingly helpful and really made us feel special. Full marks to all at the Dock House

My wife and I have stayed twice at the Dock House and it is one of our favorite hotel in the world. You really feel at home. The service is impeccable and the rooms fantastic (ask for a room in the second floor with a balcony). The location, right above the Waterfront, is perfect. There is no restaurant, but room service is available and breakfast is served in the morning. You do have access to the facilities of their big sister hotel, the V&A across the street.

This is a gem that I can wholeheartedly recommend.

We had an excellent stay in this tiny hotel. Very well located for the V&A waterfront (walkable even in the highest heels), it's a perfectly executed boutique residence with every last detail carefully thought through. I cannot recommend more highly.
