Traveller Reviews

  • 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 One&Only was great with good food and beverages. The room was elegant and relaxing. The location is perfect and only minutes away from the Waterfront - shopping and dining galore.

    William Saunders, January 2012
  • Cape Town, One & Only - Awesome accommodations we loved it here and all the sites we were able to take in!

    Roger Hall, November 2011
  • The One and Only was lovely. We were so glad to have experienced South Africa for the first time and we will be back before long!

    Lawrence Notman, November 2011
  • We had some concerns about this hotel in terms of would it be too modern and impersonal. Again I am delighted to say that we were wrong and from the moment we were greeted at the door by Enoch the doorman we felt part of the family. The children were whisked off to see the Children’s club (which we had not even thought would be working). The only slight blip was that the large outdoor heated pool was not being heated because the boiler was being maintained (what is it about us and outdoor pools being taken out of commission!) but Nicola, the receptionist that was dealing with us said that we could use the penthouse pool and she arranged to have it heated for the children. The rooms were fantastic with the interleading working very well and the views of Table Mountain absolutely stunning. We actually ate in the restaurant two nights because the food was such good quality and although marginally more expensive than eating out in the Waterfront was worth that premium payment. The children visited the kids club for the odd half hour when we were packing or getting ready for going out and always came back with creative things they had made with the carers such as South African flag fridge magnets or painted t-shirts. We would wholeheartedly recommend the One and Only to families and will return ourselves.
