We stayed at the Commodore for four nights and were very happy with the service and the location. The breakfast were wonderful and Claire at the travel desk was so helpful in arranging an all day wine tour which I had tried to book myself. "Wineflies: is the name of the company and it was absolutely fantastic: Included 5 wineries... More

This was an OK hotel. The location is excellent, but the room was just average. The bathroom was downright annoying. The bathtub/shower combo - bathtub very narrow and shower water came out either too cold or too hot, and switched up between hot and cold as I took my shower. My mom experienced the exact same thing! The bed was... More

we booked a DELUXE ROOM via a booking machine as the direct booking failed several times. The room is not as big as offered, the announced 24 m2 had the the bathroom included AND it had NO balcony as offered. The story they told me at the reception: If you ask for a Balcony, you get one. Why should we... More

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel as part of our South Africa trip. The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to the Waterfront. Only 5 minutes walk. Waterfront is a lot fun, lots of dining and shopping opportunities. Hotel itself is adequate. Breakfast buffet was very impressive: fresh made to order eggs, pancakes, variety of cheese, smoked...

Enjoyed my 3 nights stay very much. Happy with my room as it has pool, waterfront and Cape Town football stadium view. Rooms are small but nicely furnished. Love the comfortable bed & pillows and buffet breakfast spread. The restaurant staffs are always polite and friendly. Hotel is 5 mins walk to V&A Waterfront shopping mall and most of restaurants...

Stayed for 5 days and was satisfied. I really appreciated the discrete service which kept the room clean and even turned the sheets for the night, with a chocolate to match. The wind can be noisy at times and the air conditioning average. Heating was not convincing. The fireplace was better. The lifts are grumpy, with a mind of their... More

The hotel is in a great location only a couple of minutes walk from V&A. Some of the staff are friendly and helpful and the room Is clean and has a modern feel to it. Unfortunately the wifi doesn't work in the rooms so we had to go to the lobby to use it, the toilets didn't flush properly so... More

Overall had a good stay in one of the newly refurbished rooms. The location & breakfast remains the biggest selling point. The shower over bath should be banned from any hotel that wants to be 4-stars in my opinion – but it does the job I suppose. We had a room on the 1st floor overlooking Portswood Rd, the traffic...

A really nice hotel that is within walking distance to the Waterfront. I was most impressed with Dumi,Palesa,Helena,Bukiwe,Tina and Philip. The car service which is outsourced is mot a good value it is 50% more than getting a cab that the hotel can call for you
