We recently stayed at the commodore to watch the cricket at Newlands. Not only is the hotel perfectly situated for the v and a but is also only 10 to 15 minutes away from numerous hot spots in Cape Town. Our room was well decorated immaculately clean really comfortable bed with superior bed linen. Serviced and replenished everyday with efficiency...

We stayed in this maritime themed hotel during December 2015. The property is situated in close proximity to the V and A Waterfront. The rooms are comfortable whilst the the food on offer in the dining room is superb. All staff members go out of their way to assist wherever they can. The only gripe that we had was that...

We stayed as a family we had before Christmas. including our little daughter had so much fun. We made breakfast in the garden was very nice.

Both the hotel and the staff could do with updating. On the plus side, the location is excellent and the breakfasts are brilliant. Muneeb, from Customer Relations was very good and helpful, but overall the staff training seems lacking. The concierge told us the wrong pick up point for a trip. The Welcome Pack arrived two hours before departing on...

The Commodore was an excellent home-base in Cape Town. The location on the V&A Waterfront is perfect for tourists of all types (plenty of fantastic restaurants and key sights within walking distance and easy to find cabs). Breakfast buffet was excellent (excellent croissants and service). We would definitely stay again when we return to this gorgeous city.

We stayed a few nights at The Commodore, for the price we paid i felt that the rooms were a bit small, though the magnificent view of Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront made up for it. Service was top notch and breakfast was delicious. Parking can be a bit of an issue as the hotel shares its bays with...

5 minutes walk to Waterfront area which is very lively place with shopping mall and restaurans and bars. Breakfast is satisfactory. There is an outdoors sitting for smokers. The rooms are with balcony and very confortable bed and pillows. Towels are enough big thanks God. The plug system is British and the hairdryer is in the drawer in the room.
