The DockHouse is a delightful boutique hotel right at the doorstep into the Waterfront, but still gives a feeling of seclusion. at Night from the first floor rooms the view of the Waterfront lit up is a special sight. Now onto the rooms they are all individually designed and all are lovely and spacious with great bathrooms. they are all... More

We loved our stay at Dock House. The rooms are gorgeous, large, and the balcony had amazing views of the waterfront area. Breakfast was included and could be enjoyed at Dock House or other Newmark properties on the waterfront. We actually preferred the breakfast at Queen Victoria the best as we could sit on the patio facing Table Mountain. Craig,... More

There are only six rooms in this beautiful hotel and we had the pleasure of staying in one. I can only say book it and experience it for yourself. It deserves more than five stars. There is a back, hidden entrance to the hotel that puts you at the V&A Waterfront in about two minutes on foot. Perfect location, superb... More

We had the pleasure to be in this beautiful hotel with only 6 rooms on New Year's Eve 2015. The rooms are absolutely amazing: spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and the location right above V&A waterfront made it a first row seat in the beautiful garden to watch the fireworks. Really nice and very personal check in and service makes this... More

5 great nights. Fabulous large rooms, great toiletries, outstanding staff everywhere you turned, delicious breakfasts and dinners at their restaurant Dash, lovely pool area, premier location etc. etc. etc. I could go on and on. SO MUCH BETTER than the overhyped local competition. I would return in a heartbeat and would like to thank all the ladies and gentlemen on... More

I have had the most amazing healing and relaxing treatments at the Sanctuary Spa located at the Dock House Boutique situated in the V&A Waterfront. My therapist Nikita greeted me warmly with a delicious drink of cool natural fruit infused water and guided me into the stunning spa where I was given my own locker and robes with slippers to...

Terrific location in the heart of the Waterfront, right next to all of the action, but surprisingly private nevertheless. Charming old building and the rooms are well appointed and comfortable - we had a balcony with a view of Table Bay and could also see the mountain from one of our windows. Staff were friendly and bent over backwards to... More

We stayed at the Dock House, whilst in Cape Town for four nights, we were allocated room five which was absolutely gorgeous, we rarely find a room which is on par with our bedroom at home, and this hit all the marks. Craig was particularly helpful and all the male staff were a delight, particularly Nelson. The manager took us... More

A small charming hotel with easy access to the waterfront and the city centre. But the service is extraordinary. Craig the manager could not have been more helpful, not just with our stay in Cape Town but he also helped book and suggested excursions on our drive along the garden route. Thank you Craig, zinzi was a great restaurant in... More
