The Dock House Hotel is a unique and opulent jewel in the crown of Cape Town’s glamorous, world-famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, offering discerning guests exclusive accommodation and personalised yet unobtrusive butler-style service in a world-class setting.
Originally built as the Harbour Master’s private residence in the 1800s, this architectural gem has been transformed into one of Cape Town’s most elegant boutique hotels. Understated grace meets contemporary-classical glamour; from the groomed gardens surrounding the slick outdoor swimming pool and bar area to the well-appointed interior which boasts six five plush suites, an elegant Morning room and a private library.
