A stone’s throw from the alluring V&A Waterfront, located alongside the Time Ball Tower, Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa offers the ideal balance between convenience and complete privacy. The hotel’s charming exterior gives way to an opulent world beyond its front door. Chandeliers and ornate ceiling cornices, among other fine touches, create a sense of Victorian charm and allude to the property’s historical roots, originally the Harbour Master’s private residence in the 1800s. Since then, the building has been transformed into a distinguished boutique hotel, voted among the top 25 luxury hotels in South Africa. It has been uniquely decorated with elaborate furnishings and bold artworks, maintaining the trait of classic exquisiteness throughout the establishment.

We Stayed for 6 nights mid March in this lovely boutique hotel. We were greeted by one of our 3 butler’s during our stay Innocent who showed us to our top floor corner room 503 I think.Lovely big room with large bathroom and a nice terrace looking out over the garden and pool to the V&A. Donovan looked after us during breakfast which was very nice with lots of cooked options available and a great buffet spread. The location was excellent just 2 minutes walk to all the restaurants and bars of the V@A and a great craft market. Both Innocent and Donovan were excellent hosts. The third butler was X who we interacted with a bit more as he was on in the afternoon and he went above and beyond calling us taxis in the evening and printing of forms required for our onward journey etc. He is another great asset to this hotel. Their sister hotel Queen Victoria and was about 70 meters away with a nice bar area and restaurant and we had some fun in there with the bar man and one very happy waitress who’s names I’m sorry I can’t remember. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for service and location and thank the 3 butlers for looking after us so well during our stay and I hope to return one day.

This location can't be beat. The hotel is directly across from all the action on the waterfront. Our room was large and well appointed and the staff were wonderful. Innocent, the butler, was very accommodating and even arranged reservations at the last minute for a great meal. Our travel plans were disrupted by airline issues and the hotel helped with luggage storage and a spot to perch that evening while waiting for the transport to the airport. Treat yourself to an historic and convenient hotel.

Stayed here for the first 3 nights of our holiday and what a great way to begin, a beautiful boutique hotel right next door to the Waterfront in a fantastic location with free parking. Our room on the top floor looked over the grounds and into the waterfront was just lovely and big. They don't have a bar or restaurant on site, but their sister hotel the Queen Victoria right opposite does and is where you have your breakfast. Staff there, including the security guards outside so friendly. Donovan and Innocent are 2 great guys and a credit to the hotel. A wonderful stay.
