A gem of a hotel close to everything on the Waterfront

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 01 Nov 2023via mobile
The Dock House was a delightful place to stay in Cape Town - spacious and well-appointed rooms in a charming and historic building, good location and with excellent service. Ashley our host was delightful - engaging, knowledgeable and took great steps in ensuring a wonderful stay. Be sure to ask him stories about the history of the Dock House.

What a beautiful building, inside and out, right in the lively area of V&A. Everything was perfect and nothing was too much for a member of staff by the name of Ashley, he was attentive to all our needs and his ashleychino in the morning was a perfect start to the day.

Room tip: You are in the heart of the V&A, so can hear it when you are by the pool. But the room was quiet. Easy to walk into V&A without any worries

The hotel is very well placed in the V&A area and is very boutique. The staff were excellent especially Donovan and Ashleigh who looked after us all the time. The room was spacious with a separate bathroom, the bed was very comfortable and the view from the balcony was spectacular.

We spent two, three day spells here at the beginning and end of our holiday to South Africa. The standard on both occasions was extremely high, whether we ate at the Dock House for breakfast or had an evening meal in the dash restaurant at the sister hotel, the Queen Victoria nearby. The staff were overwhelmingly polite and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
This is an excellent base for visiting Cape Town Waterfront and excursions to the wine lands, Table Mountain or trips around the Cape peninsular.

Room tip: Jump on the Hop on Hop off Bus for a tour of the area or Table Mountain. The bus terminal is a few hundred metres away

A welcoming room, with a beautiful view and always kept tidy by the staff who have always been kind, professional and attentive to our comfort. We felt pampered at all times. It is also located in a very safe area where there is an air of joy and sharing.

The hotel is located within easy walking distance of the waterfront. The rooms are beautifully presented clean and spacious and the bathroom is excellent. The separate dining room where we had breakfast is also beautiful. The breakfasts are substantial and lots of choice. Across the courtyard is the sister Hotel Queen Victoria which you are able to enjoy delightful drinks and food.

Room tip: Great spot to use as a base for sightseeing
