    Just WOW.

    Incredible views of the V&A Waterfront from this meticulously maintained historic building. Welcome and service during our stay bordered on embarrassingly posh. Fantastic bed made you not want to get out of it despite the excellent location. Possibly the best place we have stayed at in every category.

    WOW from start to finish.

    From arrival to departure was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for Jeanette, Cynthia and the whole team. They made us feel very welcome and the service was natural and not forced in any way. The location couldn’t be any better as it’s a very short stroll away from the many restaurants and shops on the V&A waterfront. I would highly recommend the Dock House.

    Honeymoon Stay

    Fantastic stay at this perfectly located hotel. All the staff were very friendly and could not have been more helpful if they tried. The breakfast options were brilliant. You have a choice of 3 different hotels to eat in so you can vary your options should you fancy a change. The hotel was very clean and the rooms were very comfortable. The location on the waterfront was perfect. Would definelty stay here again.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Unique ist surely the position and the fact that it is a very small hotel which means cosy. What I did not like is the fact that they put the 50ZAR donation per day already on the final bill without telling in advance, although I understand that it was my decisione if I liked to pay it or not. I also thought that there was almost to much staff around the breakfast table at times.

    Great hotel and staff.

    Really lovely hotel. Only hotel we're returned to twice as we really enjoy it. Boutique, centrally located right in the heart of the waterfront. This can make it slight noisy but usally music stops at midnight. Saying this, we love sitting on the balcony absorbing the atmosphere. Staff couldn't do more for you. Decor we love.

    troca de hotel

    na verdade estou avaliando o queen victoria hotel, hotel vizinho e da mesma rede do dock house . quando cheguei eles me comunicaram que o quarto reservado por mim estava com problemas e que eu deveria me hospedar neste outro. fiquei chateada , pois ja tinha me hospedado no dock house e, e um hotel especial, diferenciado. inclusive ponderei que devia ter sido avisada com antecedencia, pois poderia querer ir para outro hotel.
