A modern five star property, beautiful grounds and luxurious rooms with balconies. Mine had an excellent view of Table Mountain. Breakfast buffet was outstanding with service to match. Hotel is a bit modern for my taste but I appreciated all of the amenities and comforts offered by a newer hotel. Location couldn't be better, easy walking distance of the V&A...

We have stayed in a lot of great hotels in a lot of places, but this was by far the best in absolutely every respect. There are no words to adequately describe how courteous and helpful every staff member was.

My wife and I stayed at the One & Only Hotel in Cape Town during our first trip to South Africa. We enjoyed it very much. The accommodations were excellent. The hotel has great amenities. The restarants are exceptional and the main bar is beautiful. We did not have an opportunity to use the outdoor pool, but it is gorgeous....

Wonderful staff -- particularly Megan of Guest Services who greeted us warmly and accommodated our every whim with a smile and a suggestion to make it even better. Good buffet for breakfast.

Absolutely lovely hotel and instantly joins the ranks of hotels like Four Seasons Hong Kong and Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. Be sure to get a room with a view of Table Mountain, and eat dinner at Reuben's rather than Nobu. The intoxicating Charlotte Rhys scents that perfume this property linger in my memory as I write this.
