Great hotel. Great service and great restaurants. It has a Nobu at the hotel. It is very close to table top mountain and to the pier. Very well located. The pool and spa are also beautiful. Service could not be better.

This was our first time in Cape Town and at The One and Only. The hotel is absolutely wonderful, from its perfect location to its impressive facilities and attention to detail, where nothing is too much trouble for the staff who always seem to deliver their service in an efficient and friendly manner. In particular, our daughter has food allergies... More

The One&Only Cape Town is located right in the Waterfront, the trendy area of Cape Town. It is an Ultra-Modern hotel, something you will take note of the minute you walk in the front door. The staff is very friendly. The hotel features two restaurants, one of which is the trendy and delicious NOBU. The rooms are also very nice,... More

We had a single room overlooking Table Mountain. Great views and great service. The landscaped grounds were fantastic to walk around and was easily walkable to shops nearby. Would recommend this hotel.

The service, the food, the rooms.... where do I start? All the staff are so friendly - always willing to help and making guests feel welcome. This was particularly lovely after a long flight and arriving at the hotel very tired! The rooms are beautiful and well kept. They're clean, modern and very, very comfortable. Ours was a poolside room... More

Okay, so we were only meeting a friend of a friend for drinks. But our group of 20 were so excited about seeing the 6 star The One and Only. We were to meet at 6:30 for a drink and then everyone was splitting up to go their separate ways for dinner. We decided to go to Nobu, as long... More

The rooms at One and Only took my breath away! The bed was very comfortable and you had a pillow menu for your personal comfort. There is also a scent menu in case you like a certain odor in the room. Our balcony overlooked the waterfront, which was a great place to enjoy a glass of wine. The bathroom was... More
