The location is great - you can walk easily to V&A wharf, aquarium etc. Restaurants are all good and you can get the full restaurant menu in your room - very good for relaxing romantic evenings. Very good size rooms, excellent decor - everything you need. A real oasis in the heart of the city.

The newest and best hotel in Capetown. The location is excellent--near the docks and Victoria and Albert Wharf. The service in all aspects is outstanding. The hotel's restaurant--Reuben's--is very good and very efficient. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to an "Island Suite", and it was wonderful and a great way to finish our tour through southern Africa. Everything... More

Spent 3 different days here having lunch and buffet tea and it was a nice treat. Found hotel to be transient but could be that we were there out of season . Wete allowed to park free but... More

Our second stay at the One&Only. Every single detail of this hotel is just about perfect: great and spacious rooms, a wonderful bathroom, very good soundproofing from adjacent rooms and hallways, immaculate cleanness of all facilities. Outstanding gym. Very high quality breakfast (what a selection !). Most of all: a very warm and dedicated staff throughout the whole hotel. Special... More

I booked two nights at the One&Only Cape Town through American Express. The hotel is modern, clean, and the rooms are incredible. I had a marina-facing suite and could not have been more pleased. It was huge and could not have been better appointed. The hotel staff are incredibly helpful and service oriented. This will be my hotel on all... More

I thought after 2 fantastic stays it was time to review the resort. A great location, stunning rooms, amazing service all of which add to the quality. One of very few resort style hotels in the area. The Kids Only kids club was such a hot with my two children we battled to get them to join us for activities.... More

Never before have I been made to feel so at home & at ease in a hotel, the staff are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is immaculate & fresh, warm & friendly. We stayed in one of the Island suites, it was huge & had its own terrace overlooking the water way. The pool does get busy... More

Our first stay in an One & Only. We were expecting a pretentious hotel, and instead found a sanctuary in the city. Perfect service, a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the inner water way and Table Mountain (very quiet at night) and walking distance to the old part of the city and the new Victoria waterfront, which is a...

I booked this hotel over 8 months in advance as an end to a 10 day Safari around South Africa. I only wanted the best, and clearly, this was not it. On the first night, we booked at Reuben's and we asked for fast service because we were all tired and my children needed to get to sleep. It took... More

Recently stayed at the One & Only in Cape Town. Wow! What a hotel. Perfect location on the waterfront, lots to see and do, during the day and evening. Hotel spa was great - ask for Jason, wonderful at massages & facials, wanted to bring him back with me. And, the prices are great, 730 zar (£43) for a 50... More
