This was the first stop on our South African honeymoon, and we really enjoyed our stay there. The room was beautiful and had an amazing view of Table Mountain. The rest of the hotel was very classy. There is a great bar area with live music in the afternoon/evening. And the food is excellent. The breakfast buffet is top notch...

We stayed four nights here on our way to the Lion Sands Safari Lodge and the Ngoma Safari Lodge in Botswana. After a 15-hour flight from New York, we were ready for some R&R and pampering. The One & Only did not disappoint. The breakfast included with our stay daily was abundant and fresh. WE MUST CALL OUT AUBREY IN...

I think people who rate this place highly mustn't travel much. It's very expensive for what it is. It needs a refurb in some areas. There are no harbor views but location is convenient. Some of the individual staff were good but bound by union rules. Try getting breakfast before 6:30 am before an early flight. The public areas are...

It's our first visit to Cape Town and we are really pleased that we have chosen wisely to stay at One&Only. Decor, ambience, location and room size all excellent. Most memorable is the service. Absolutely outstanding! Whoever provided the training should be congratulated! On the negative side, we booked a room with mountain view. We did get the view but...

Simply exceptional!!! An oasis in the middle of Cape Town right at the V&A Waterfront. We stayed in a family room for two days and were simply wowed by the hotel, room size, friendly staff, delicious food and the wonderful pool area. It was a fantastic way to end or trip to Cape Town.

This was our first stay at a One and Only resort and it won't be the last. Wonderful staff. A good location within easy walking distance of a mall/shopping area and restaurants. Also easy walking distance to the boarding area for tours to Robben Island.

Having never been to Cape Town before we decided to "push the boat out" booking this Hotel in spite of the hefty price tag especially as a safe bet particularly in terms of location. The room was described as having a Panoramic View of the Marina and this swung my decision. ( Unfortunately it didn't.....more on this later.) The Hotel...

Booked a 1 bedroom suite in an island section of this beautiful hotel. The reception was faultless; warmly received and I was escorted into my room within 20 minutes of arrival. Room was clean, but the complimentary fruit basket was not appertising ('tired' fruits). Unfortunately, I hardly had more than 8 hrs of sleep in the 3 nights I stayed...
