A wonderful stay at The One & Only Cape Town. We arrived very late in the evening after traveling over 25 hours and our check-in was swift and pleasant. The property is lovely. The restaurants are great. From the minute we arrive and throughout our stay our entire experience was lovely. Highly recommend this establishment.

My mother and I had the most amazing stay at this hotel. The service was so amazing. In the breakfast room Trevor always remembered our coffee order. If you’re at the bar, Elton is an absolute delight. Room was so nice, food was delicious and energy is unmatched. <3

This hotel is truly one of a kind, 5-star luxury. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and very clean. We had a breathtaking view of table mountain that almost made it hard to leave the room. The location is very convenient to the V&A Waterfront for shopping and restaurants. The staff are phenomenal! Every staff interaction from check-in to check-out and the various points between were pleasant and smooth. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast each morning. Concierge was most helpful! They assisted us with meal reservations, a wine tasting, finding a local reputable jeweler to purchase tanzanite, and planning out our Table Mountain and Lion's Head hikes. Our wine tasting was done with Luvo Young-Ntezo. He is fantastic. He is very knowledgeable about his craft and makes wine approachable for the non-expert. It was so fun to create our own wine blend, with his guidance, to bring home to enjoy at a later time. He felt like a life long friend by the end of the tasting. Overall, we would highly recommend One&Only. Read less

I enjoy working out on vacation as well and the gym is very nice. The gym staff were super accommodating and overly friendly and it is well stocked with water and healthy snacks. The spa was AMAZING and I like the fact that hotel guests can use the spa amenities even without scheduling spa treatments. Very nice touch. The food was amazing and the service from everyone was out of this world!! Read less
