We had a spacious suite on the ground floor, very comfortable if the decor is a touch sterile, but a huge efficient bathroom. Our patio area needed attention though, if the fountain doesn't work fix it, don't leave stagnant water in it ! Breakfast was excellent served inside or out and prepared to order exactly as requested. The garden is... More

I stayed in the Dock House in July (2014) with my parents - it was great that they could give us an interchanging room. Upon arrival, your door is opened for you and your luggage is carried to your room. The manager that helped us check in was friendly. The rooms are always wonderful - soft bed and linen and... More

The service, decor, and location - superb! Very attentive and accommodating staff who found a doctor, for a minor issue, immediately. Beautiful views of the waterfront. Convenient to the V & A shops and right next door to the "Springbok Experience" (Rugby Museum).

The great personal service (nothing is too difficult), the quality decor, the fabulous location, the view of the V & A waterfront (we had an upstairs room with a balcony) the amazing food - everything about this small boutique hotel is superb.

The hotel is quite small, so everyone in the staff is dedicated to servicing your needs at all times. Its location right on the V&A waterfront is very convenient for both business and holiday trips, unless you want to stay at the beach. Justine, the manager, was very helpful in finding concerts and shopping. Staying at the Dock House also... More

Accommodation perfection. Excellent position directly above the V&A. Rooms luxurious. Staff professional and unobtrusive but great attention to detail for example a bottle of cold water brought as soon as you sit in the sun lounge after a dip in the lovely little pool.
