Our room was quite spacious with a breath taking view of Table mountain. Facilities are great. Staff and service definitely worth the money. The breakfast buffet (atmosphere, selections, wait staff) was an event that I welcomed on daily basis.

We almost upgraded to a suite from our table mountain deluxe king and I'm so glad we didn't waste the money. Our room was extremely spacious, clean, had a sofa where we could sit and watch tv, and a huge bathroom with a... More

Service is truly outstanding without being stuffy in the slightest, nothing is too much trouble and all staff are very friendly. All areas of the Hotel are spotless.

For those of you who have stayed at One&Onlys you know how they are. Destinations in and of themselves. This one is in a destination city...Capetown of course...but is definitely a strange one in that it feels like a Hilton but it isn't. The rooms are awesome. Large and make sense. The property feels like a resort which it aims... More

We recently spent three nights at this hotel. The welcome was fantastic after a long flight from Sydney via Johannesburg. We were shown to our room which was set up as requested with twin beds ( most hotels don't seem to get two friends travelling together ). The location was great - a short walk to nearby restaurants, bars and... More

We spent a week at the One and Only earlier this month and couldn't fault it. The rooms are spacious, clean and extremely comfortable - we had a room with a view of Table Mountain which was stunning. The choice of food at breakfast is outstanding and even includes oysters! We loved the chocolates left by the turn-down service which... More

We had a Marina Mountain Suite. The Suite was very large with breathtaking views of Table Mountain. We were in room 301 and it was very nice. We called room service on a few occasions and they delivered our food at exactly the time they quoted and it was very good. They also bring you complimentary coffee with your wake... More

If you looking for a luxury stay , the one&only is for you. Great service , great food and very central to everything you need. best time of the year to go November - March right in the middle of summer near to top beaches in the world even though the Pool area is great to relax at too.
