Guestbook Reviews

The Dock House is a wonderful small hotel right by the V&A Waterfront. The rooms are large and very well appointed. The staff led by the lovely Kelly, are all fantastically friendly and helpful. The hotel has a small gym with modern equipment and a great view from the running machines! The spa was also excellent. This is one of those rare hotels that we would recommend completely and without any hesitation.

Press reviews

Understated waterfront glamour - Dec 2009

One of Cape Town’s most intimate boutique hotels, included in the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler annual ‘Hot List’, Dock House plays host to only a few discerning guests at a time. Five generous rooms and one glamorous suite – all leading into oh-so-spacious bathrooms – are individually decorated with sensuous fabrics, crystal chandeliers, original art and the softest carpeting underfoot, giving them a serene and gracious charm.
