My wife and I stayed here for two nights on the ground floor in room 502, which is a large suite. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was enormous. The place has a really neat feel with high ceilings and large windows. You do have a view of the skyline from the ground floor, but not a view of... More

Very nice location at the waterfront but also quite noisy in the evenings because of loud music from the restaurants nearby. I travelled alone as a woman but feld perfectly safe at hotel and also in the surroundings.

My wife and I stayed in the ground floor suite which is very comfortable. However, in order to get views you may want stay in one of the rooms on the second floor, as there are no views from the ground floor. The hotel location is excellent, you are just steps away from the V&A waterfront area. The hotel has... More

My husband and I stayed at the Dock House in July 2014 while he was in Cape Town for a conference at the cape Town Conference Center.

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.
