This was a solo visit for me. The Commodore hotel was very hospitable and had a fantastic location which was across the road from the Victoria and Alfred tourist area. The room was serviced daily to a very high standard and the the staff were superbly polite and friendly. Breakfast was an absolute pleasure...plenty of choice and good quality food.... More

Couldn't fault the location of the Hotel, within easy walking distance of the Waterfront in Cape Town. A bit formal and more like a business Hotel for our tastes especially after 3 weeks of boutiques Hotels on the Garden Route and Game Lodges in Kruger. But I guess we knew that when we booked it! Spot on server, breakfasts excellent,... More

Stayed here for a night as it is a great location after arriving in Capetown by ship. Clean and comfortable room although the shower over the bath is awkward. The bath is so narrow it's difficult to balance under the shower. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and professional. We were given an excellent packed breakfast as we had an early... More

The location was perfect. Walking distance to the Waterfront shopping, restaurants, cafes, and boat trips. The breakfast was super with variety of food and drinks. The room was a bit less spacious than I would expect. I would suggest to the management to check on level of noise coming from air-conditioner. Luckily in May the temperature was not too high...

I extended at this hotel for 2 nights following a business trip to Johannesburg and Cape Town. This hotel was a decent 3 star property with comfortable rooms that boasted a nautical theme but had a somewhat tired look about it. The service throughout the hotel was professional and courteous and I encountered no problems during the check-in or check-out... More

A beautiful hotel located around the corner and a five minute walk from the gorgeous V&A Waterfront - and that makes it one of the prime reasons why you should stay here. Great property with rooms overlooking the Table Mountain. The breakfast is a King's spread from the varieties of fruits, cheeses, grills, breads, bakes and the chef is even... More
