I LOVED staying here. The staff was extremely friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. They asked questions about each days' excursion to ensure a smooth and enjoyable time. When learning we were going to go to Mama Africa's the next day, the staff reserved a taxi to and from for us (without us even asking!). Food was amazing. Room was beautiful and... More

The Dock House is unique in its quiet, but very central Waterfront location. With only six luxury suites, this hotel offers that personal touch many hotels fail to offer. As a family we had booked four of the suites and were all delighted with our accommodation and very impressed with the excellent service offered by all the staff with whom... More

A lovely boutique hotel very near the waterfront. Lovely room on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the waterfront V and A. Great food and amazing service. Possibly the best hotel in Cape Town.

I've stayed in several of Cape Town's finest hotels and have only great things to say about all of them. (Cape Town is an extraordinarily hospitable place!) But The Dock House was a unique unparalleled experience. If I remember right it has only 8 rooms. Each quite spectacularly luxurious. It sits right in the waterfront, but high above the fray...

We stayed here in May and just loved this hotel and Cape Town in general. The hotel is extremely conveniently located and is walking distance to many restaurants and attractions. The hotel management and staff were superb. They were very attentive and proactively responsive to any needs / requests we had. I had fallen and sustained a semi-serious knee injury... More

We have stayed at Cape Grace several times and loved it. We only had one night this trip and wanted to stay in the V&A harbor area. We were fortunate to book suite 501 which is on the first floor. This suite has living and sleeping areas as well as a huge bath and private outdoor patio. To my wife... More

From the driver pick up at the Airport to the check in process, I felt like I was visiting an old friend. Stepping into my suite, my room had a view of the waterfront and I could hear the sounds of South Africa from my balcony. The staff was amazing and helpful in all ways, walking me to nearby Shops...
