The location is fabulous. The rooms are impressive with an entryway, oversized sleeping area, comfortable living area and a bath facility the size of an entire bedroom in any usual hotel... all impeccably appointed. The killer view of Table Mountain is one of the best vistas in the city. Service is two cuts above usual as well. The only less... More

This was my husband and my first time staying at a One and Only, we both liked our experience. The hotel was nice, especially the entrance/bar/coffee area overlooking the waterfront. We stayed in the Marina Table Mountain Queen Room. The view was amazing, waking up to the view of table mountain...when it was clear day. The hotel is located in... More

We stayed with a large group as part of a company trip and what a wonderful place...deluxe all the way, fantastic location, great restaurants and very helpful staff. To illustrate that point, I had a unique problem to solve: my expensive SLR camera had fallen off a shelf, hit the floor and jammed the now shattered UV filter in place...the... More

We had a week here between Safari and a couple of weeks in Mauritius and have to say it was the highlight of the holiday! Awesome hotel in every aspect, service, food, range, facilities, rooms, I could go on all day! The two main restaurants offer diverse and exciting dining options from Japanese to traditional and contemporary world foods. Breakfast... More

Booked thro African hotels.com ...From arrival to departure staff could not have been more friendly. Location for eating out on the V&A Waterfront is less than 5 mins walk. 2 minutes to the Big Red Bus Tour. Breakfast excellent. Room upgrade to to Table Mountain room. Recommended hotel at the prices they charge in SA. Would visit again....

The hotel has all the amenities of what I expect in a five star resort. The service was fantastic. 5 minute walk to the waterfront. The bar and restaurant were excellent. I highly recommend this property and would return.

Quite simply one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in ranking equal to the best five star properties in the Far East which are usually my benchmark for superb quality. Staff supremely helpful with nothing too much trouble. Small enough for personal recognition to be commonplace. Great location with superb panoramic views of Table Mountain. An easy walk... More

Just back from a wonderful weekend spent in Cape Town where the team at the One & Only made our 20th wedding anniversary so very special. All the finer touches made us feel very welcome and the experience was truly a memorable one. The proximity to the V&A Waterfront also makes the hotel an ideal location to explore the City.... More

My husband and I stayed here for three days on our 50th wedding anniversary trip to Africa. The room we had was superb - comfortable king bed with sitting area, huge bathroom with double sinks and separate jetted tub and shower, and a lovely balcony overlooking Table Mountain. Each time we came back to our room, there was something there... More
