Very well positioned hotel, very close to the V&A waterfront. Michelle and her staff went that extra mile to be helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent. Great experience sitting in the garden by the pool having a coffee or cool drink. Most excellent visit to Cape Town.

This was our second stay at the Dock House. As ever, we couldn't get over how nice it was to be so close to the V&A waterfront yet be in a distinguished old building with a beautiful private garden. Generally good service but there were a few wee omissions that were rectified as soon as the manager returned from a...

The hotel is centrally located overlooking the V & A Waterfront with wonderful views. The outdoor pool and gardens were well maintained and a very pleasant place to relax after sightseeing. The staff were very friendly and attentive without being obtrusive. We stayed in the suite which was spacious and superbly fitted out with a private patio. We will be...

Many reviews have commented favourably on the the standards offered by this excellent hotel. I endorse them all but for me, the stand out feature of our recent stay to celebrate my wife's birthday were the many personal touches, large and small that made the occasion one that we will truly remember. Michelle Flourie and her team provided a level...

This hotel is not easy to find as it is tucked away on the top of the small hill above the Waterfront and in amongst several other hotels. It is in fact only 2 minutes walk from the Waterfront and the Ferris Wheel. The building used to be the Harbour Master's house and is built in the colonial style with...

The hotel is in a wonderful location , a couple of minutes walk from the V & A waterfront, stunning views of Table Mountain. All the public rooms and bedrooms have been designed by an interior designer and are beautiful. Each bedroom/suite is different. The hotel is part of a group of three close by and guests can eat breakfast...

We loved our time here. This beautiful hotel is very close to the Waterfront but set in lovely gardens behind a high wall which screens out almost all noise. Our room, 2, opened onto the lawns and pool area and was spacious and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful and gave a warm yet efficient welcome on arrival,...

It's a bit like going back in time I suppose, colonial Britain or the time of the Raj or at least perceptions of it because the care everybody goes to make sure you are looked after is unbelievable. It's not in a subservient way, just good manners and lots of attention to detail. Nothing seems to be too much trouble...
