The hotel was hosting the sales convention for us, and all of the people who stayed at the hotel were incredibly impressed by the fantastic helpful staff and the setting of the hotel itself with views out over Table Mountain. The breakfasts are something to behold and I also have to comment on the quality of the bed sheets -... More

We were lucky enough to book a brief stay in Cape Town and stayed two days at the One & Only and then two days at Cape Grace. Both were great, however the One & Only was absolutely beyond fantastic. Phenomenal property, incredible staff and absolutely wonderful room. We were graciously provided a room early and stayed in a giant... More

Lovely luxurious hotel with great views of Table mountain. All the staff were super helpful and friendly, the breakfast was amazing, afternoon tea & drinks at the bar were superb. Location is great for walking over to the marina and getting into town.

We spent three nights here after disembarking from the QM2 and had an upstairs island suite. The room was huge, with a massive bed, lounge with large TV, large balcony, bathroom, everything. We had breakfast included at Ruebens and also had dinner there one night. The food was really good and reasonably priced. The location of the hotel is right... More

Very nice hotel experience for me. The staff went the extra step to make sure every thing was satisfactory. I appreciate their efforts. The breakfast included was perfect every day. The room was maintained and even have a good laundry complement. The only slight I may mention is the free wifi cost me $20 U.S. Which means free is not... More

My husband and I just LOVED our 2 night stay in the One & Only hotel. Our room had a wonderful view of Table mountain. We were very impressed by the excellent service and friendly staff. We felt spoiled and special and will certainly stay there again and most definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Cape Town.

It is located about 5-10 minutes away from Cape Town's waterfront area, with plenty of good restaurants and shopping opportunities. The room was spacious and had a breathtaking view on the Table Mountain and the hotel's own garden area, with cute water channels inbetween. Its heated outdoor pool is phenomenal. Breakfast was rich, the service impeccable.

We stayed here for 4 days after our amazing Safari at Ullasabe, Krugar. The hotel is on the waterfront so near to wonderful restaurants and near the Boat trip to where Mandela's prison island. A must visit is Table Mountain. The food and service in the hotel were 6 star. Will DEFINATLY return here.

We spent two weeks at the One and Only Cape Town (Feb-Mar) and it was one of our best experiences. We are from near Toronto Canada and a family of four with a two year old and six year old and when we decided to travel to Cape Town we wanted a safe and convenient location. This fit the bill...

We were a party of six family and friends, staying for 8 days from 20th to 28th March 2015. We had three rooms booked, two on the island and one in the main building. On arrival we swopped the room in main building for a suite, only because it was a special occasion for one party member. Four members of... More
