Stayed over at the One and Only Cape Town this weekend and what a fantastic stay. The service was impeccable and the staff made us feel as if we were VIP's from the time we arrived to the time we left. The room was spectacular with views of the mountain, surprise complimentary champagne in the room as we were celebrating... More

Good luxury hotel with views of the Table Mountain from most rooms. Rooms and bathrooms are large, well appointed and do not disappoint. Good food. The business center offers free browsing. Friendly staff.

We were welcomed at the One and Only with lots of warmth and friendliness which was lovely as we were there for a special occasion. The room they gave us was a corner room and absolutely gorgeous - views of the harbour and mountain. Everything was great from the moment we arrived until the moment we left - in the... More

My wife and I spent three nights at The One&Only as part of our 25th wedding anniversary visit to South Africa. This was our 1st stop and the visit set the tone for a wonderful trip. The staff was courteous, professional, and friendly while the guest accommodations, dining, and spa facilities were top notch. But above all, the attitude of... More

Most of the luxury hotels/resorts we have been to are generally pretty expansive and spread out. O&O came across as a pretty compact luxury property given its entrance, lobby, the restaurants, and four floor of rooms and an Island wing. It became all the more obvious when we had one group during our stay. The location is great - walking... More

We travel a lot, and generally stay in Four Seasons properties when available. From now on I think we'll stay in One&Only properties even if there's a Four Seasons nearby. The O&O Cape Town is exceptional and truly one of the best hotel experiences we've every had, anywhere in the world. Our airport pickup (and dropoff a few days later)... More

Right from the welcome drink and the excellent rooms and the warmth and the service, each aspect is simply outstanding. The rooms are wide and spacious with nice balconies on the island rooms . The property with its canal interface is great. And a ferry to V&A waterfront is hop skip and jump. We were part of a large delegation... More

No apsect of this hotel is anything but excellent. The room my husband and I had was contemporary but not cold. There was fresh fruit on the table when we arrived, and it was replenished daily. The bathroom was oversized and had all the amenities a guest could want. Housekeeping was efficient and the staff more than polite and helpful,... More

If you only have a short amount of time in Cape Town, stay here... Beautiful rooms with every amenity, large funky bathrooms, excellent buffet breakfast, and all the rooms have amazing views of Table Mountain. Walk to the waterfront, close to everything.
