Fodor's Review

Victorian splendor meets modern glam at this stunning boutique hotel perched over Cape Town's trendy and ever-popular Waterfront. The Dock House, with only a handful of rooms and butler-style service, oozes pampered privacy. Antique silver artifacts, crystal chandeliers, edgy artwork, and bathrooms are sure to impress. The staff, dressed in white linen tunics, provides immaculate yet understated service. The property's prime location means visitors can freely (and safely) explore the Waterfront's plethora of dining, shopping, and other attractions. But, with a private chef dishing up divine room-service meals, a pool and bar overlooking the harbor, and a full range of treatments and gym facilities at the OneWellness spa annex, it's entirely possible you'll never want to leave.
