We stayed a few nights at The Commodore, for the price we paid i felt that the rooms were a bit small, though the magnificent view of Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront made up for it. Service was top notch and breakfast was delicious. Parking can be a bit of an issue as the hotel shares its bays with...

5 minutes walk to Waterfront area which is very lively place with shopping mall and restaurans and bars. Breakfast is satisfactory. There is an outdoors sitting for smokers. The rooms are with balcony and very confortable bed and pillows. Towels are enough big thanks God. The plug system is British and the hairdryer is in the drawer in the room.

One of the nicest hotels based on the friendly welcoming helpful staff. The décor reflect the nautical name and there are some very good marine paintings as well. the rooms are in the process of refurbishment with a cool blue range of tones.

The room is clean. The water pressure in the shower is simply perfect. The bed and pillows are the right firmness and have fresh white linens. I only ate breakfast and the selection is good - breads, fruits, assorted dairy, warm dishes...the works. If your preferred breakfast options are not available in the buffet you can inform any of the...

This hotel is very conveniently located across the street from the waterfront market area. We walked around at night and felt safe and secure with all of the security guards about. The breakfast at the hotel was excellent. The rooms were very small and there was only one electrical outlet for two of us to plug in numerous devices. We...

This was our second visit. The hotel is clean, comfortable, and some rooms have small balconies with lovely views. A 5 minute walk will get you to the Waterfront. We were pleased to see the same friendly and effcient restaurant manager from 3 years before. Breakfasts are buffet style with a varied choice, and can be eaten inside or outside....

We had a great stay at The Commodore. Although our room was one of the older, unrefurbished ones, it was clean and spacious. The bathroom definitely needed up-dating but the water was hot and the shower was pretty effective. The buffet breakfast was great and all the staff made us feel very welcome.

This could be a beautiful hotel while already being in a great location next to the Waterfront area of Cape Town. I had a room on the second floor with a non-working air conditioner and after asking to have it repaired 3 times, the unit was eventually completely replaced. They did offer me a free late check out on my...
