Fantastic hotel- great location next to the V&A waterfront. Really excellent service with very friendly and helpful staff. We had a queen room (2 double beds)with a fabulous view of Table Mountain. Rooms are really lovely and beds super comfy.
Loved it!

Great Hotel

I loved this hotel! Great location, very comfortable rooms and attentive staff. Would stay here again. Had a great view of Table Mountain. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby, so I was able to walk around on my own in the neighborhood and feel safe.

Superb hotel and service

Exceptional service, rooms are immaculate (we had the mountain facing view), the breakfasts are incredible and we enjoyed the proximity to the waterfront. I'm usually one to stay on the beach side when visiting CT, but this was well worth the change.

5 star Dinner

Where do I start. What a beautiful Hotel situated in the Waterfront. My husband and I have lived in CPT for the last 2 years now and this was my fist time at the Hotel. We where blowen away. All with warm welcoming smiles and greetings. We had dinner in Reubens on Saturday night and what a treat. Restaurant was very busy and had a great vibe to it.The show stopper was the food and service, it was 5 Star Quality. Special thank you to Bradley our waiter. He made us try the stuffed calamari... a must. And also the manager Damian. Really super friendly and make us feel like royalty. We will be back!

World class service on another level!
Reviewed 1 week ago

Every hotel in the world needs to follow the standards and first class levels of service set by the One & Only in Cape Town which has just smashed its way right to the top of our favourite hotel in the world list!

This hotel is truly EPIC in every sense of the word and has exceeded our expectations in every possible way.

The attention to every detail, the personal touches, the warmth and friendliness of EVERY member of staff make you feel completely at home.

We have never met such a team of genuinely happy, helpful, smiley and friendly staff (in ALL departments from check in to concierge to bar to pool to restaurant to room service to housekeeping to door staff and security!) that truly make this hotel the benchmark for what world class hotel service is all about. Whoever is responsible for staff recruitment and training and ongoing team morale deserves a big thank you.

Mangaliso our concierge from the moment we arrived was utterly charming. A true gentleman who could not do more to make us feel welcome and comfortable. His discreet yet thoughtful levels of service continue to amaze. At breakfast this morning he arrived with a smile to gift us pool essentials after noticing our burning faces and feet from the heat the day before. Its the little touches like this that take this hotel to another level of first class service.

We are already looking up the locations of the other 7 One & Only resorts across the world in order to plan our future holidays around their locations, however rest assured this Cape Town property which welcomed us into the world of One & Only will be a regular home away from home for us.

Thank you once again to the entire team at Cape Town One & Only.
