The gracious Victorian-era residence of Cape Town’s harbour master has been sumptuously reinvented as Cape Town’s most discreet Victoria & Alfred Waterfront hotel. A short flight of steps from the heart of the Waterfront conceals the swimming-pool deck and courtyard garden of Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa, poised above Africa’s hottest tourist destination. The sleek, beautifully manicured outdoor space (which overlooks the Waterfront’s lively harbour and has views of iconic Table Mountain) hints at the discreet glamour you’ll find within this architectural gem.
Understated grace meets luxe contemporary style in the beautifully appointed interior, which offers six plush suites as well as an elegant morning room, a private library and the sunny and gracious dining room where delicious breakfasts are served daily.
Accommodation includes five suites – all individually decorated in sophisticated style – as well as the glamorous Luxury Suite, which opens onto the courtyard garden. Rooms 4 and 5 have the option of being interleading – perfect for a family. Three of the upstairs suites open onto balconies with views of the harbour, while a ground-floor suite opens onto a veranda overlooking the garden and swimming pool. All suites are imbued with understated Victorian elegance to complement the property’s lush contemporary style. It goes without saying that the blissfully comfy king-sized beds and fine Egyptian-cotton bed linens ensure an excellent night’s sleep, while each thoughtful touch – from the minibar and complimentary coffee, tea and cookies in your room to the designer en-suite bathroom, heated towel rails, plush bathrobes and slippers, and more – enhances your wellbeing. For absolute privacy, the whole hotel may be booked out for exclusive use, at an additional cost. In this case, guests will have private use of the dining room for breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
You are spoilt for choice with a vast selection of amenities at and near to Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa. Unwind on a lounger in the hotel’s private pool area set in the beautifully manicured garden, or pamper yourself at the award-winning Sanctuary Signature Spa; if you have energy to burn, schedule a work-out with a personal trainer at the fully equipped gym.
Discerning guests relish the personalised yet unobtrusive butler-style service in this supremely elegant hotel. Dock House’s bouquet of services – which include 24-hour room service; twice-daily room servicing; secretarial service; airport, city and restaurant transfers; a foreign-exchange facility; secure parking; and WiFi throughout the hotel – smooth the way for leisure and business travellers alike.
