Traveller Reviews

  • One and Only was beautiful hotel - loved it.

    Janice Duncan, August 2016
  • We enjoyed our stay at the One&Only accommodation in Cape Town. The full package was very good .

    Fernando Monti, March 2016
  • The One and Only was very impressive and we were very well looked after . The V&A arranged a bottle of champagne in the room when we arrived which was nice and the manager called to check everything was ok.

    William Angear, July 2014
  • The One and Only in Cape Town could not have made us more welcome!

    Melanie Maxwell, May 2014
  • The One & Only was a fab choice. Service, room, pool... everything was very perfect. So we will definatley return to that hotel ;))

    Andreas Freijs, February 2014
  • Like last year, One&Only was perfect.

    Ryad Souilah, November 2013
  • My son and I had a blast. It was a eye opening experience and we both are counting down the months till return. The One and Only staff was fantastic! From the management, concierge, doormen, and waiters; they all were great. My son absolutely loved the Kids Club! Michelle (work in the club) was great with my son. I really cannot see me staying anywhere else when I visit. Speaking of Cape Town... We both fell in love with Cape Town. I love that place, it is such a beautiful city. The food was excellent too. I had a Lobster salad from Nobu that was the best salad ever.

    Lee McCray, July 2013
  • As for Cape Town... Breathtaking is the only word that fits! Lets just say, I'm return next year. The One and Only is top notch. My son asked me several times if we could move here. I think this will be our official vacation spot.

    Lee McCray, July 2013
  • The hotel was beautiful and the accommodations superb! We had no complaints about this hotel at all, but I will say that we also were not in it very much! When we checked in they also had us booked in a room with two queen beds, which was disappointing. We told them since we were there for 4 nights we did not want to be in a room with an extra bed. The manager came over and was extremely friendly and actually ended up upgrading us to a suite with a king bed so it all worked out in our favor. We had a corner room which had views of both Table Mountain and the marina. Our favorite thing about the hotel was probably the concierge - he was very helpful in telling us where to go for lunch and dinners. We loved every meal we had in Cape Town! I think The Codfather was our most favorite just because it was such a different experience in that you get to go to the counter and pick out your fresh fish. On our first day we decided to buy tickets for the hop-on, hop-off bus to see the whole city and I would highly recommend that to anyone who is going to Cape Town for the first time. It was a great way to see all the sites and get off where you wanted to explore a certain area. That day we went shopping with street vendors, laid on the beach at Camps Bay, and even made it to the top of Table Mountain!

  • The journey was absolutely fabulous! The One and Only is amazing.
