Whereas I usually have a high opinion of the One&Only chain. I think that in Cape Town they don’t meet expectations. They just cannot compete with all the lovely boutique hotels and high standard bed and breakfast’s around. It is massive, there is no nice place to sit and work, and whereas the service is impacable, it is not very personal. In short not my cup of tea.

Stayed: March 2017, travelled on business

Two friends and I visited this hotel for dinner and drinks. We went to the restaurant, Nobu, which definitely lived up to its reputation as one of the best restaurants in Cape Town. However, our dinner was far from the highlight of our experience. After dinner we ordered drinks from the bar and asked the bartender, Archie, to surprise us with his favorite drink. Instead of just making us the same drink, he asked his two fellow bartenders, Luba and Stephen, to also make their favorite drinks so that each of us would have a different special drink to try. The results were incredible, including fire, house-made alcohols and flavorings, and elaborate decor. In addition to their remarkable talent, Archie, Luba, and Stephen were extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the area informing us which bars to head to next. I will definitely return to this hotel, if not for the drinks then just to say hello to my new friends Archie, Luba, and Stephen!

Room Tip: Ask for Archie, Stephen, or Luba at the bar!

Its all in the title, I went with my boyfriend and his family to their homeland a few years ago and we stayed in this lovely hotel. We had stunning views of the Table Bay mountain from our room, the room was huge and had a beautiful bathroom.
We often ordered the milk tart sundae which was amazing and we enjoyed the pool area. We went on leisurely walks into the shopping mall which was a 10 minute walk from the hotel and had some delicious meals in the hotel.

The hotel staff were courteous and friendly, we loved talking to them and finding out about them. The gym was great and we enjoyed daily workouts.
Overall I really enjoyed staying in this hotel and found it very stunning.

Staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are superb and have the breathtaking view of table mountain. The spa treatments are good. We found the pool area a bit cramped, but the hotel is well located for walking around the V&A area and general local exploring.

We hope to return next year.
