About
Description
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 More 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. Less

We have been staying at the V&A (sister hotel) and have spent the last 2 days relaxing around the pool and treating ourselves to spa treats. I found Pelma to be a fantastic therapist who I would strongly recommend. I had a manicure and pedicure and was delighted with the results.

We arrived exhausted from Australia late at night and were given a warm welcome by Nicholas. The bed was a dream and it’s impossible to get any closer to the sights of the V&A Waterfront - just a flight of steps. We couldn’t fault this small boutique hotel. I was suffering extrem
