Hotel One & Only is by far the best hotel I have ever visited. We were here on a tour of South Africe in May 2016. The accomodations are brand new, the swimming pool is magical and the staff must be the friendliest and best trained I have ever met. If this hotel would be located closer to home, I... More

My favourite of the big hotels in CT. Offers everything. The spa is a delight. Very peaceful environment with quality treatments. Lunch at pool is very enjoyable. Breakfast or high tea is great. Had dinner both at Reuben s and Nobu s very good. The Neo shop is also a nice experience. Love the smell in the hotel.

This is a true luxury hotel. My room was beyond spacious and well-appointed with everything I could have asked for. The hotel itself has inviting public spaces and a fun bar. The pool and pool-side restaurant were a relaxing oasis. The location is just off the waterfront which made it easy to walk to sights to see, places to eat,... More

Stayed at this wonderful hotel in July 2016 , It was a magnificent experience, Patricia who checked us in was amazing ! Some of the staff are warm and really nice, and a few were not that friendly or approachable. Our room was sublime, with a huge balcony overlooking the mountain on one side and the marina on the other,... More

We have been back to the One&Only a number of times this year. One of the weekends was for my birthday celebration. Everything about the hotel is world class. Value for money...this hotel is worth every cent. It is surprisingly well priced compared to other more exspensive hotels in cape town that don't offer close to the professional, personal service....

This hotel has every amenity and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Dinner at the main restaurant was a bit various for a restaurant / hotel of this quality, though breakfasts were excellent. The main problem for us was the placement of the family from Hell in an adjoining room, who made enough noise for us to imagine they... More

We read Bianca Coleman's review in the Argus Newspaper. Her review was spot-on! The pool-side restaurant, called Isola was a wonderful venue and a warm place to be on a cold day. Wonderful staff; very warm welcome and a super fondue experience, which brought back many memories for us. Thank you Bianca for suggesting a novel way to have lunch.... More

Stayed for three nights and had a great time. Staff was friendly. Food and service was very good. We also think the location was pretty good close to shopping,food etc. Only issue we had was that they scratched our rental car when they parked it in the garage.

Our family recently stayed at The One and Only Cape Town for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. They were so accommodating to my husband and myself, as well as our 3 children.
