There is good secure underground car parking. The hotel communal area has a very peaceful ambience and the check in process was quick and easy. The staff are very attentive, friendly and professional. The internal security tag on the key fob operates the lifts to all levels and the place felt very secure. The Penthouse Apartment 704 is very well designed and feels light and airy. There are 2 bedrooms each with en suite facilities (shower and bath upstairs shower downstairs). The balcony looks directly at Table Mountain and the view is its USP. The breakfasts are excellent with a good selection with the added advantage of eggs cooked to order. The hotel is situated a stones throw from the Cape Quarter with an excellent SPAR grocery store. There are also plenty of excellent restaurants within walking distance or a R30 taxi ride away.

Disliked
There were a couple of issues which I took up directly with the hotel management and they were dealt with promptly. Once resolved there was nothing not to like.

We booked a three bedroom apartment for our family of 5 but when we checked in On New Year’s Eve we were told there had been a change to the reservation system part way through the year and the apartment we had booked was no longer available. We were instead given 2x2 b/r apartments for 2 nights and then moved to a 4 b/r apartment for the following 3 nights which was annoying as we just wanted to stop and unpack for 5 days.
The 2 bed apts were ok but pretty worn.
The 4 b/r apt was spacious but the 2 upstairs bedrooms were mezzanine style and opened directly onto the living and kitchen spaces below meaning there was no privacy for these rooms.
The nightclub across the road was clearly audible each night until well into the early morning.
The bathrooms didn’t have exhaust fans so smelled damp all the time but the kitchen and butler’s pantry which included the washing machine and dryer were reasonably well equipped.
The lifts and lobby areas could use some maintenance but the staff were lovely and were really helpful.
Parking is not included in the room rate but isn’t expensive (~60zar/day) and brekky is ok but it’s much better value if you go out for this and there are lots of great brekky spots close by including a Spar if you want to make your own.
All up our stay at at the Rockwell was convenient but the place needs a bit of maintenance.

We enjoyed an intimate wine tasting and cheese platter at Rockwell Cellars @ The Rockwell Hotel & All Suite Apartments. The educational tasting was conducted by Benito the F&B Manager, he is extremely knowledgeable about his wines and flavours and made us feel like he's known us for years. After 2 tastings he had already figured out our palate and was not shy to bring out more bottles that he felt we would enjoy. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening as well as the different wines and cheeses on offer and went home with a few bottles of wine. We will definitely and gladly attend another tasting like this at Rockwell Cellars!

I had a booking with Rockwell "Luxury" Suites last week.
When checked into the room, it was anything but "Luxury", in fact the level of accommodation, finishes, equipment could be described as nothing but "budget".
The unit was cheaply finished, sparsely furnished, and the kitchen crockery, utensils, glasses, cooking equipment were below boarding school quality. The unit smelt of bleach / disinfectant, which was overpowering.
I was planning to use the apartment to meet offsite with management from my business in Cape Town, and just could not do so due to due to the apartment being so poor.
The property may argue that their facility "ticks all the boxes" as advertised. I cannot argue with this, but it certainly does not meet the expectations of the price point charged.
There are signs in the apartment asking guests not to use marijuana in the apartment, what sort of place is this??
I left the apartment within 45 minutes of arriving, after making a few calls to find a suitable alternative.
I make use of apartments and hotels in Cape Town at least once a month. This is by far the worst accommodation I have experienced in the past 3 years.
I have requested a refund from the property, but have had no response.

When we arrived Rockwell had no record of our booking despite the Chief Operating Officer having confirmed the booking in an email. We had to mill around for three hours. When we returned no progress had been made. Eventually there was a cancellation and we were given a room we were informed was available for two nights. We were asked for proof of payment which we provided. There was no apology and the hotel blamed Agoda for the mistake. There appeared to be no porter or doorman. Our room had only three forks and three spoons. Furnishings are budget not luxury. We had to buy a bread knife. Nobody ever checked if everything was in order. The walk to the Waterfront is twenty minutes and via a tented community under a bridge. The bath is tiny and shower head low. The additional fee should you wish your room to be serviced is exorbitant. On the plus side there is a nearby Spar, the linen was clean, the WiFi quick and the view of signal hill and the mountain decent. Unfortunately in the foreground is an abandoned service station.

Check in was a nightmare, we had to circle the block 3 times and every time pop back in to reception to get the parking disc reset very time. eventually we got into the building, when you access the lifts in the basement, there is NO signage to say that the lift on the left is only for staff and will not work for guests needless to say we got stuck, doors don't open and the lift does not move. After ringing the emergency bell, security got us out on the ground floor. we then had to change to a different lift and move all of our stuff, as you cannot go to upper floors using the lift from the basement. As it was loadshedding, I asked about using the stairs, they are apparently locked, but will open in the event of a fire - I certainly would not want to test that theory. I could go on and on, suffice to say, all of the guests from our party were very unhappy with the Rockwell and will NOT be staying there ever again.

When leaving my first hotel, and wanting to come and book in for a few extra nights, I was met by an extremely friendly security guard that showed me to the reception area, as I stood there explaining to the receptionist that I would like to book in, she kept looking down at her computer doing work. I stopped, to give her a minute to rather finish, when she then decided to look up at me and tell me, that I fact she was able to multitask and that she could I fact in am extremely rude tone, multitask and she can answer my questions and do her work at the same time, when I mentioned that I felt that it was extremely rude, she started going off at me, about what she cant And can't do.
I would never recommend staying here

We stayed 5 nights in the hotel. The staff were excellent the room was very clean and the balcony that all the rooms have was a delight to share some wine in the evening. About a 15 to 20 min walk to the V&A waterfront or Long St. Would definitely book again when/if we return to Cape Town.

My trip is quite busy, I booked this hotel quite late. The first impression on the hotel is the receptionist is very professional and enthusiastic. Moreover, the eating spots that the staff recommend are really delicious.

Nice apt, clean and fair prices.
Although I asked specifically for Table Mountain View and one room with twin beds several times, it wasn’t provided (was promised).
However, the stay was pleasant otherwise.

Can you walk to the v&a docks from the hotel?
Answer from LouiVictoria
Haddington, United Kingdom85 contributions10 helpful votes
Yes we walked to and from every night. We walked along prestwich st to ebenezer rd, turn right and down to the roundabout. Crossed at the roundabout to the right and down dock road which takes you round to the waterfront. We did go left at the roundabout the first night but that was a long way. Hope this helps. Also maybe take a taxi if it's dark!
