Great Weekend GetawayPosted Apr 22, 2014 on Hotels
If you are looking for great 5 star accommodation and service and are willing to pay for it, look no further than the Dockhouse Boutique Hotel. The Service and Hotel are truly 5 star. Great location and view, divine cheffy food and exceptional service.

Attentive staff and well cared for historic sitePosted Mar 23, 2014
Pros: The charm, the small size, the friendly helpful staff and the attention to detail are what I will remember most.
Cons: There is no elevator so it would be difficult for older couples but it is only a two story property so it is no problem for most people.
Location: It is a minute from the ferris wheel at the V&A harbor so there is lots of restaurants and shops and very close to the Aquarium.
The building is the former harbour master's residence. It is close to but overlooks the V&A Harbour. The staff clearly love the boutique hotel and are very attentive to the needs of their guests. Welcoming fruit and champagne and a nightly baked treat at bedside are examples. Breakfasts were served in the dining room by efficient friendly staff. The inside is state of the art modern without spoiling the charm of the hotel. If you get a balcony you can enjoy the sea breeze but the back garden is relaxing day or night. I would definitely recommend it to friends and stay there next time.

A wonderful place to stayPosted Feb 20, 2014
I cannot recommend The Dock House enough. Fantastic and personal service and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are marvellous (would suggest you try to get 505 or 504 which have balconies) and more than equal to any 5 star hotels I have stayed in.

The rooms were tastefully appointed and very large. We had a comfortable balcony with a view over the V&A waterfront. The bathroom was enormous. Service was friendly and professional. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. We can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

Charmantes Hotel an bester LagePosted Feb 5, 2014
Pros: Das historische Gebäude mitten in der Stadt mit dem kleinen Aussenbereich zum relaxen war super. Lage perfekt. Mitarbeiter sehr nett.
Cons: Die elektrischen Installationen im Bad dürften besser sein. Es fehlen Steckdosen.
Location: Super Lage. In ein paar Schritten ist man an der Waterfront mitten im Geschehen.
Kapstadt ist eine Reise Wert. Das Hotel haben wir als sehr persönlich empfunden. Die Mitarbeiter haben sich bestens bemüht und wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Wir planen nächstes Jahr wieder zu gehen und werden sicher wieder in dieses Hotel gehen.

Relaxed Atmosphere in Centre of CityPosted Feb 3, 2014
From the moment we arrived this hotel proved to be something special. Wonderful staff who are friendly and attentive. The room was excellent with a large balcony from which we had a great view of the waterfront. The gardens and pool are tranquil despite the close proximity of the waterfront shops and restaurants. I have stayed in other 5 star hotels in Cape Town but this was the best for me

Excellent Hotel and LocationPosted Dec 23, 2013 on Hotels
We loved the Dock House Boutique Hotel! We stayed there at the end of our honeymoon and it was an ideal location to explore Cape Town for the two short days we had. The staff was beyond accommodating, flexible and helpful, and the breakfast was delicoius! Our room was enormous, clean, beautiful and so well appointed! We considered staying at a name brand hotel (One & Only, etc), but we're so glad we chose the Dock House. I highly recommend it! Thank you to the staff for making our stay so great!!
