We booked for 3 nights in March 2020, to celebrate our 30 th wedding anniversary. I highlighted to the hotel of this special occasion a couple of times prior to arriving, as well as that we are vegan. 1) Location and Hotel Very special location, views and beautifully "crafted " hotel testifying to the creative talent of Gayle Behr. 2) Customer Service Well, this is where this hotel experience disappointed. Hotel was low occupancy, and they put us in the "worst" room in the hotel despite it being very special occasion. It is called the worst room by the hotel, for a simple reason that despite it being comfortable, and edgy in design, its location within the main hotel and lounge/dining area, made out noisy. We had to ask more than once that the staff respected that we were guests. Gayle Behr may well be a design genius, but she was around when we highlighted to her staff of our dissatisfaction that the service, staff attitude and culinary options for vegans were limited. Running and managing a hotel at the 5 star level required for the pricing, takes more than design, and making your guests feel uncomfortable for pointing these things out. Not once did she make an effort to personally come over and take charge to sort out things. 3) Food - Limited vegan options despite hotel being notified weeks in advance. At the time, I recall there being one main option for vegans, which is ridiculous for a 3 day stay. Summary- Go have drink or a light meal there to experience the setting, but I cannot in good conscience recommend staying over. Running a 5 star hotel at 5 star prices takes more than design.

I am writing about the food before the hotel closed it down for outsiders. Lunch - Sunday - it was so quiet we were the only guests. Great I thought. Wrong. Service was non-existent. A simple bottle of wine took 25 minutes to arrive. Food? Another 25. Quality? Dream on. If not because of our host/friend, I wouldn't give it 3 stars. But don't worry. You can't get in anyway.

The Romance of Travel has been subsumed by accountants and designers intent on a suicidal shuffle between cost saving and luxury inflation. Hotel offerings from even the grandest of chains now have a feel of the business class lounge, identical to the other 1000 airport’s lounges in this sad consumer-world that has literally gobbled the ground beneath our feet. And then there is Dorp. Dorp is original, theatrical, transcendent , unapologetically didactic in its commitment to Gail Behr’s clear loathing of the mundane. Her innate genius for unwasteful perfection invites us into her world and like a glass of water or a warm breeze, you know that this is truth, she is right, and that you’ve returned to the home you wish you possessed.

We found a home in Cape Town. Wonderful experience and boutique hotel feeling. Perfection in all aspects - service with a smile, kindness from the management and staff. Nothing is a problem and the only concern is to please the client! Sense of attention to details and wonderful interior decoration, views, restaurant and gardens. BRAVO! We just hope that will be back very soon ! Thank you to all 💓

I heard about Dorp Hotel in the Bo-Kaap, an historic Malay quarter, from a journalist (they get invited everywhere first). When I wanted to book for dinner as a treat for a friend visiting South Africa I read online to my dismay that the restaurant was not open to the public. When I phoned to enquire whether this was true the person on the other side of the line asked playfully whether I wanted it to be true. Well . . . So we were allowed to make a booking for what turned out to be a magical evening with views over the Mother City from Table Bay to Table Mountain, a lovely meal and a dining room/lounge that was utterly charming with its plants, books and mismatched furniture. Oh and there is the very long pink sofa which in itself is reason enough to go again. Congratulations, Gail, and your staff who were all just delightful.
