Total luxury

The two of us had a wonderful holiday at The One and Only Capetown. It's in a very good position to get around from. Restaurants are all close if you don't want to eat in the hotel. Good variety of craft shops. Open top buses just around the corner, which have two routes and cover a large area. We used a car from the Hotel to do the Winel route. Amazing attention to detail with the hotel staff. They went out of their way To make the experience special. We would definitely return.

Not worth the money

Nice hotel but not worth the money. I was expecting a top 5 star experience, but this hotel did not give me that. We stayed at other places in Cape Town that were cheaper and better.

Excellent hotel & service

One of the best hotels i have ever stayed at! Staff were wonderful and helpful. I stayed in an Island Suite, which was nicely secluded and ideal for a luxury break. Would definitely go back over and over again! Spa facilities are amazing too.
