Most amazing stay! Great personal service and was our request handled efficiently and effectively. Even received complementary drinks while waiting. Walking distance to V&A Waterfront and transportation to Cape Town in general. Stayed in a room overlooking the waterfront, all what you can wish for was in the room and more.

Booked this hotel on a winter special rate online as a last minute decision. Best one I have made in a long time. I usually use the Table Bay Hotel as linked to the V&A shopping mall so all convenient but this time made a change and found a new favourite. This hotel is a good mix of contemporary yet... More

My husband and I stayed at the one and only for 2 nights. It was absolutely amazing. I have stayed in many hotels and resorts but nothing compared to this. The service was incredible. From the moment we stepped out our car until our departure we were only met by smiling faces. Every one of the staff were absolutely amazing.... More

The place is beautiful (as you'd expect from a One&Only hotel) and the location is perfect, right next to the Victoria and Albert waterfront. You can walk pretty much everywhere in the city centre from there, it is safe enough.

From the professional friendly check in to the beautiful rooms overlooking the marina and Table Mountain, this is a place to indulge your senses. The staff are all friendly and welcoming making you feel special. The breakfasts in Reuben's restaurant... More

From the moment we arrived at this hotel the service that we received was superb. Without exception every member of staff that we met could not do enough for us. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. The only meals that we had at the hotel was breakfast which was excellent. I had some spa treatments which were truly wonderful. I... More

I liked the choices on the previous menu but for certain the new menu does not disappoint !! Steak fish especially the mussels in a class of its own are of the best you will find...!! Starter portions are not big so a three course advisable !! Service is good and pleasant

The hotel is beautifully decorated, clean with excellent, well-trained staff. We had tea on a Saturday afternoon in the lounge area where there was wonderful live music and a decadent array of sweet and savoury eats tastefully laid out. The space is child friendly with a wonderful view of the harbour. Seating is available inside and outside. There are pages... More

This hotel is beyond fantastic. Beautifully decorated, helpful and friendly staff, fabulous views and a delicious high tea.The bar serves some of the best cocktails we've had..ever.It doesn't have a hotel vibe, it felt more like a resort on an island far far away.We didn't want to leave! So proud of having this gem in Cape Town.
