Well located property close to the Waterfront !
Overall a pleasant stay in close proximity to the Waterfront. Excellent service, good facilities and good location. Rooms lacking electricity outlets and beds/duvets needs improvement though!

Convenient for V & A Waterfront
Commodore is very convenient for the V and A waterfront. The hotel is fine but could do with some refurbishment. Our room had a lovely view From the balcony over the marina and up to Table Mountain but no chairs to sit and take in the view. The bathroom was of reasonable size with walk-in shower. Unfortunately it had been fitted with new door seals so some it wouldn’t open properly. Nice bed linen but mattress becoming a bit soggy.Good breakfast buffet.Seemed a safe area to be wandering around in after dark.

Great location, clean and comfortable
Lovely staff, comfortable room. Shower took a while to heat up which made me feel guilty due to the water situation in Cape Town. Location is extremely convenient, a 3 minute walk to the V&A. Breakfast was not very good. The baked goods were not good at all and the selection is limited.
