Our room was huge with beautiful views of table mountain and an enormous bathroom. We were travelling with our 10year old daughter who found that the hotel had also given her a mini version of...

Simply. Amazing. Therapist was brilliant. Setting is great. Facilities is up there with the best I've seen. It's a must do capetown hotel. Positioned centrally to town - with the waterfront a short walk away. Proudly. South African. 😇

My wife and I just got back from a short break (without the kids) at the One and Only Cape Town. Staff were amazing (Monique on front desk was particularly helpful and looked after us so well) and Diana was most welcoming too. We had a great room (301 - suite, in main building). Views of Table mountain from room... More
