    A great location for access to v&a, Robben Island etc. The Commodore welcomed children with the large room having a queen bed and a comy single fold out. (The Portswood next door would not take a booking with kids.) Lots of room left for bags and moving around. Breakfast was great and the restaurant served a delicious reasonably priced dinner. A great bar with large fire place for chilly nights. The staff were friendly and helpful.

  • Older travelers

    The staff was most obliging and friendly, offering help without being asked first. The breakfast was amazing, the beds were very comfortable.

    The windows on the 4th floor open alarmingly wide - enough for someone to slip and fall out while trying to close the window.

    The rooms , staff , and everything was perfect , the friendliness with my kids and family was A 1, The best for small kidds , Thank you

    The taxi sevice was up and down ,Some taxi drivers tried to get as much out of you with detours and very high prices that differ everyday for the same route ???

    Friendly staff

    I didn't find the Waterfron particularly interesting. Next time I would stay in the wine district or perhaps at a boutique hotel further down the coast or on the east side of the peninsula. Didn't really enjoy the centre of Cape Town, but loved all the other suburbs.

    The Commodore is in a great location, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly.

    The hotel seems to be old and when the wind blows it creeks and squeeks to the extend that you cant get to sleep at night.

    Only its proximity to the shopping at the v&a waterfront

    The service was poor,very perfunctory,i requested three times for a duvet to make my extremely hard bed -softer-nothing happened.the room was never vacuumed dury my stay-how do I know- I left three grains of rice on the dirty carpet ,they were still there when I departed.the management staff were more interested in their regulars and flitted about with grim demeanours.the security staff were good at calling the lift,but the porters had not been briefed that car doors are always open and shut for the guests. upon my departure one of them half heartedly made a move to do so,i beat him to it by a mile.the cupboards were extremely dusty.i unfortunately place a couple of my folded white shirts on this unclean surface.i really did not enjoy the h

    Very well appointed, friendly and helpful staff, excellent food and drink, great ambience.

    There was nothing I didn't like about the hotel.

  • Family with children

    Breakfast buffet is excellent. Tables at the garden are also noce when whete\ther is good.

    The hotel gave us a room of lower CLASS(standard room) than we booked. We stayed one night there before we moved in "right room(business room)" where we stayed another three nights after we complaint. no compensation nor special service was provided against the mistake. The hotel staff said "Business room and Standard room are same rate throgh Booked.net".(i don't know if this is true or not) We also had some other small troubles. One of those was that they accused us for not packing our baggages before we went to sightseeing when we moved in "right room" while we confirmed that we can pack them after we come back. Hotel staff entered in our room despite "Do not disturb" tag.

  • Group of friends

    The staff was excellent as was the food. The location is a three minute walk to the waterfront. It is excellent value for money.

    The only disappointment was the outdated equipment in the gym. I needed to work out the kinks after a 30 hour trip.

    Car parking service and assistance for lifts etc.. breakfast was ok and staff there were nice in the serving area

    Cost for car parking I had to move 3 times during the stay due to supplying a crap view, lack of space. My Balcony got flooded and then was never cleaned (slightly dirty) I eat in my room and service did not always hoover I used to only drink still water buyt ine evening they decided to put sparkling next to my bed internet usage was awful and should not be offered at a service due to speed restriction My charger was broken and then left on the floor in my room Look of bathrooms Loose balcony door let in draft and was noisy when windy

    The staff are great, the food is good, the hotel is close to the waterfront and the hotel is comfortable.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Good location ajacent to v+a waterfront, attentive staff and prices reasonable for meals and extras

    They had a voucher system for interbet access that expired the evening before we left!. They did provide a new code but this was inconvenient. The access should be codeless - what are they worried about? They made a double charge oin my credit card. They did refunfd the second payment , but due to currency issues it cost me £20 for this mistake they made!
