Built in the 1800’s as a private residence for the harbor master, this beautifully restored building, located in the V&A Waterfront, is home to one of Cape Town’s most exclusive boutique hotels. Located just opposite the V&A Waterfront’s timeball tower, Dock House impresses with personalized service and panoramic views of the harbor and its surroundings. Enjoy breakfast in the elegantly furnished morning room, followed by a swim in the stylish outdoor pool. While you soak up the sun on a lounger in the garden area, your very own butler can arrange a massage or treatment at the nearby wellness center, which also offers guests the use of state-of-the-art gym facilities. Classic décor and a spacious layout make each of the guest rooms and suites at Dock House a welcome retreat after a busy day. Marvel at stunning views of the waterfront from your balcony.
