Some rooms are currently suffering from some daytime noise due to the local aquarium undergoing building work but the hotel moved us as soon as we noted this. The rooms are a good size and well equiped. Breakfast is excellent. The only item I would note is that the service at the weekend does drop a little (especially the bar... More

Beside being an excellent hotel, best situated and in beautiful setting, the One&Only offers a memorable yoga experience. Imagine you practice at sunrise in a little pavilion just above the water surrounded by the sound of the birds... Lindé, the yoga teacher is best! After one hour I felt like newly born! I can as well recommend the spa treatments.... More

Beautiful hotel with well appointed rooms. Hotel near marina area with a shopping mall and wonderful restaurants. I was told Cape Town was a beautiful city and it definitely lived up to my expectations.

We stayed in a two bedroom Island Suite at the One&Only Capetown at the end of July. Although the exterior of the suite was a bit gloomy, the interior was absolutely lovely. Very spacious with two good sized bedrooms both with well-appointed en suite bathrooms. In the centre of the suite was a superb living room with a remote-controlled artificial... More

First off, I strongly recommend South Africa as a honeymoon choice. While most of the Northern hemisphere will be getting colder November onward, South Africa will be getting warmer. So if you are planning a honeymoon in the 'Northern Winter' South Africa is perfect. Secondly if you plan on going to Cape Town, I would definitely recommend the One &... More

We stayed here with a tour group as our last stop on an African safari trip. The view from our window of Table Mountain was one that I could have watched forever from our lovely balcony. Very elegant, but unfussy hotel. The location, minutes walk to Victoria's Wharf and a short drive to other sights in Cape Town, was excellent.... More

We stayed in an island villa and the room was gorgeous! Lovely staff who really looked after us and even provided a picnic for our climb up Table Mountain. Small but perfect spa. Good location to the Waterfront and restaurants. A big thank you to Diana.

We stayed here on the day of our 10th wedding anniversary and it was a very good choice. We were treated on bubbles and candy to celebrate. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
