The One and Only is a beautiful hotel with lovely rooms. It is the most quiet large hotel I've encountered in my travels. Since it's newer construction, there must be good sound barriers between the rooms. I loved my room, which was center of the hotel and had an unobstructed view of Table Mountain. The Nepresso espresso and cappuccino makers in the rooms are a bonus!! Room service was prompt. Room service came from Ruben's Restaurant downstairs and I had corn soup one night which was so good that I could have lived on it! The breakfast buffet at Ruben's was also fantastic. Despite not so good reviews of Nobu, I had a good meal there as well. I took advantage of the spa and my treatment and technician were good, but I thought the spa was small and too noisy. Other than that, no complaints. One and Only was luxurious and comfortable.

Dear Karen,

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to the Resort recently.

I was happy to read that you enjoyed your stay and that the corn soup was such a hit, please do let me know if you would like us to send you the recipe. I am really glad that your meal in Nobu exceeded your expectations as it is one of Cape Town’s favorite restaurants. I have shared your feedback about the Spa treatments with the Spa team and will do our utmost to improve the experience.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

This review is overdue as we stayed at the One & Only resort in Cape Town at the end of September last year. We stayed in a one bedroom island suite which was gorgeous, very large, spectacular bathroom, huge bedroom with excellent king size bed, large lounge-room and kitchen. Terrace off the lounge room and bedroom. The suite was beautifully furnished, very clean and well maintained.

The resort itself is spectacular. Great location (good for start/finish of Cape Town marathon which we were there for), easy walk to harbour shopping / restaurant area. Beautiful gardens and outdoor areas as well as gym and spa. The daily breakfast was extensive. Very helpful and professional staff, both before arrival and throughout our stay. We dined at Nobu one evening which we really enjoyed.

We highly recommend this hotel and would definitely return when next in Cape Town.

From the moment we walked into the lobby and was greeted by the door man I knew this hotel was up to my standards. The receptionists are extraordinary. Patricia gave us a warm welcome and her services and hospitality was supreme. she needs to be clone. The view of b table mountain is breathtaking from the lobby and your room. The size of the room is very generous and the bath products are top retail. The hotel is clean, clear cute and the breakfast is worth waking up for.

Great breakfasts, excellent pool and fantastic location. But you would expect nothing less at these prices. We had some good examples of great service but our check-in was not satisfactory and by the time the customer service manager showed we were pretty frustrated. Food at Nobu was good but not great and service there adequate but not sparkling. Plenty of good restaurants on the waterfront and in town so would select these rather than eat in.

Room Tip: Try one overlooking the pool below and Table Mountain above.
