My husband and I just returned from our Honeymoon in Cape Town. Small Boutique hotel, with beautiful rooms, GREAT location on the waterfront, friendly, smiley and very helpful staff (thanks Justine!!!) and the option to eat breakfast in two other sister hotels which are right next door! What more can you ask for! Justine made all of our dinner reservations-... More

We chose the Dock House because of all the reviews and it equalled the best of them. It is set in a great location next to the waterfront, and is a real oasis in the middle of the V&A buzz. The service was wonderful and personal - including a treat bottle of champagne on feb 14th - and the rooms... More

The hotel rooms are so big and clean. It is luxury room with very big bathroom. I recommend having very tight and controlled glass door between the rooms and the hotel garden. You have three choices to take your breakfast where they give you the choice to select between the hotel and the other two hotels around. The location of... More

We stayed here during our honeymoon trip to Cape Town. The hotel helped us arrange pickup at the airport which was perfect. We arrived to a personal note and exceptional service from our butler. There are only a few rooms in the hotel so it is very quiet and restful. Breakfast is delicious. Rooms are clean and sumptuous. Steps away... More

Our first visit to this charming hotel. Extremely warm welcome from Duty Manager Justine. Very well appointed rooms, full of character, first class amenities and sumptuously comfortable bed. Being such a small hotel the service from hotel staff felt very individual and nothing was too much trouble. Very hard to fault any aspect and this shall now be our hotel... More

we stayed in room 503 - the best room in the Dock House. Kelly the manageress greeted us and had petals leading up the stairs to our private luxurious suite. The room and balcony were perfect.

We were fortunate to be upgraded to The Dock House. It is close to all of the waterfront activities and venues but a million miles away with respect to its quiet sophisticated warmth and charm.

If you are thinking of staying somewhere else in Cape Town, don't! The hotel is so comfortable and the rooms are beautifully decorated. We had a balcony which gave spectacular views over the V&A Waterfront which is literally at the bottom of the garden. Kelly and her team could not have been more helpful, but were never intrusive.
