The staff strive to be efficient and courteous roght from the pick up from the airport to taking you to your room. Rooms are spacious with great views of the (table) mountains. Being right by the waterfront and a part of the hustle and bustle that goes on around that area makes it a convenient tourist destination. Food from Reuben's and Nobu restaurants is always fresh, with the breakfasts in Reuben's being splendid and refreshing.

After a long flight from the UK, we arrived at the hotel very early and whilst our actual room wasn't ready (the hotel was at full occupancy), the incredible Gerard was so fantastic and arranged for us to have a beautiful day room (which was actually one of the fab island suites) so that we could shower before heading out to explore for the day. The team then arranged for our luggage to be moved seamlessly whilst we were out, so we returned to another beautiful room - it might not have been on the island, but the view of the marina and Table Mountain were actually better!!

Dinner in Nobu was exceptional - as good as the others we have tried around the world. And then having breakfast on our balcony in front of table mountain could not be bettered.

Brilliant start to our holiday and INCREDIBLE service by Gerard and his team - all in all, faultless & highly recommend staying here if you want a topnotch, 5 star experience (ps we even saw the State President!)

We recently returned from our honeymoon in South Africa, and the Only & Only Cape Town was the second leg of our trip. Once again, the O&O lives up to its expectations. The room was absolutely fantastic, and the views of Table Mountain from all over the hotel were breathtaking. The staff working at the concierge desk were beyond helpful, and went out of their way to help with all request. After being there for only a few hours, they already knew our names and greeted us while we walked through the lobby. We ate at the hotel a number of times, and each time our meal was delicious. Another bonus is the great location of the hotel. You are less than a 5-minute walk from the V&A Waterfront, where you have access to great shopping and numerous restaurants. Never once did we feel unsafe walking around whether it was during the day or at night. Cape Town is a beautiful city with so much to offer, and staying at the O&O was the icing on our amazing time there.

I don't even know where to begin- the staff at the One&Only were part of putting together one of the best nights of my life!
My fiance had planned to propose and the staff went completely over and above what was expected of them.
Champagne on arrival, private dinner for 2 was arranged in a secluded "Yoga hut" - we had our own waiter and the food was transported to us via a golf cart! The in-house co-ordinator was fantastic.
The romantic turn down was a nice touch too - champagne, chocolates, candles..
As for the room - great! Shower was super, separate bath tub and a Nespresso machine to kick start your morning.
Reubens served an amazing breakfast!
Beautiful gardens, great location, 5star service and definitely an experience to stay here!

We stayed at this hotel in September for 4 nights with 2 kids. We opted for the villa rooms and loved how spacious they were. The staff were extremely friendly and every simple need was catered for. My kids loved the attention as the staff ran them special baths every night, and we kinda had to drag them away from the kids room as they loved all the activities.Trust me that was wonderful as hubby and I got to enjoy some quiet time.Turn down service is always welcomed and we loved the fact that the room was always tidied when we left. We were offered shuttle services to the waterfront and even if you choose to walk its a short 5 min walk which is lovely as you use the dedicated pathways. We also enjoyed the Nobu restaurant which is a must visit if you love Sushi and Japanese cuisine. I was a bit disappointed with the breakfast at Reubens as the menu never changed and the buffet was exactly the same each day. A must have and experience is the gorgeous high tea. I have stayed twice at this hotel and will continue to book my Capetown breaks here as the entire family really loved it.

Room tip: Choose the villa rooms as they are very romantic
