Victorian charm overlooking the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

Exhibiting filigree architecture and a sprawling verandah that leads onto a manicured lawn, the Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa exudes old-world grandeur – no doubt thanks to its history as the former residence of the V&A Waterfront’s harbour master. Now, the hotel invites guests to enjoy its sublime location, direct access to the Waterfront and seamless transfers into Cape Town’s City Bowl and surrounds. 

Cape Town is a city of startling contrasts. The Atlantic Ocean and looming formations of Lion’s Head and Table Mountain are juxtaposed against the CBD and City Bowl. Even there, modern high-rises stand adjacent to 19th-century churches and the verdant expanse that is the Company’s Garden. 

The hotel’s five Rooms and one Suite either look onto the ocean or have views of Table Mountain. Each comes complete with a designer bathroom, open bar, plasma-screen TV, high-speed internet connection and understated Victorian elegance combined with decidedly modern accents. Other on-site conveniences include a luxurious spa, morning room, library, swimming pool, al fresco dining area, bar, valet and concierge services and a world-class gym.  


  • Several activities exploring the Cape Town area can be organised from the hotel with the comprehensive concierge and transport service 
  • Universal Access facilities are available along with secretarial and professional child-minding services 
  • Foreign exchange facility available 
  • The Suite has access to a private garden 
  • Two of the rooms have optional interconnecting facilities for families and friends travelling together
