A stone’s throw from the alluring V&A Waterfront, located alongside the Time Ball Tower, Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa offers the ideal balance between convenience and complete privacy. The hotel’s charming ...More exterior gives way to an opulent world beyond its front door. Chandeliers and ornate ceiling cornices, among other fine touches, create a sense of Victorian charm and allude to the property’s historical roots, originally the Harbour Master’s private residence in the 1800s. Since then, the building has been transformed into a distinguished boutique hotel, voted among the top 25 luxury hotels in South Africa. It has been uniquely decorated with elaborate furnishings and bold artworks, maintaining the trait of classic exquisiteness throughout the establishment. Less
