Really enjoyed stay at Commodore. Safe underground parking for my car and just a short walk to the shops in the Waterfront. Good selection of TV channels, coffee and tea making facility, comfortable bed and very nice pillows. Breakfast was really good, with a wide choice of fresh fruit, good selection of cheese and cold meats, smoked salmon and a... More

Excellent location, close to Waterfront. Food was very good. Friendly well trained staff. The guest relations manager was particularly helpful. We spent 10 nights here and were sorry to leave. When we go back to CapeTown, it is highly likely that we will return to this hotel which was a good choice for us and certainly added to our holiday... More

The hotel has a friendly atmosphere which makes one feel at home. The rooms are cozy, well decorated and very well kept. The location is great to suit everyone's interests. I will always remember the morning walk starting from the Water Front along the beach... Romantic and soothing. Finally great menu for breakfast.

We stayed at the Commodore for 7 nights in April on a Bed and breakfast basis. I previously stayed last year when the initial reception and checking in was poor. Not this time it was prompt and efficient and although it was 10.30 we had immediate access to our third floor room, this was a definite plus as we had... More

The location of this hotel is really great just short walk to the waterfront an from there Cape Town via the Hop on Hop Off bus. Rooms clean and comfortable, staff pleasant and helpful. Went out of their way to give us a great meal in the dining room when we were their only customers. Enjoyed our 3 day stay.

Lovely comfortable private suite with fantastic view. Wonderful, friendly staff. Breakfast buffet was amazing in a beautiful setting inside or outside on the patio with abundant floweres. Easy pleasant walk to the waterfront.

This is my second stay at The Commodore. I echo all the other positive reviews: The staff is excellent, especially the wait staff in the restaurant and lounge. The custodial staff is also very friendly and they do a great job cleaning the rooms. The breakfast is absolutely phenomenal! Great selection of quality items! Oh, and the location is hard... More

I have been meaning to write this review for a while. We stayed in March (8-16) and it was a truly lovely experience. Great suite, a lovely mountain view from balcony, well stocked mini bar, all amenities close by and lovely food and service. What really makes this hotel is the staff! Housekeeping came twice daily and left the room... More

As you enter you get this great warm welcome, and checking in is so smooth and easy. The hotel itself is beautiful in decor. The rooms are wonderful. So clean and comfortable, and all the staff are very helpful, poliet. The Commodore is in walking distance of the waterfront, and the big mall for shopping, and eating. We had no... More
