Cape Town, South Africa
Fitting neatly into its neighbourhood, the Dock House gives you the full V&A Waterfront experience. It has a charming history – as the Harbour Master’s private home in the 1800s. It oozes Victorian elegance – with lavish chandeliers, exquisite fabrics, and antique-inspired furnishings (and modern luxuries like a courtyard pool with Table Mountain views). And it feels like you’re staying with close friends – with just six rooms, a bijou breakfast room, and the option to pop into other hotels in the ‘family’ for dinner. But you’re here to experience Cape Town – and you’ve picked one of the best addresses, just moments from the waterfront’s dining, shopping, and sights like Time Ball Tower and Nobel Square.
