My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous New Year at the One and Only. We travel all over the world but it’s one of our favourite hotels. The view of table mountain from the bar area is iconic, standard of rooms excellent and staff always helpful. Loved the New Year party.

I am not sure about the hotels temperature but the Marina around the hotel is where the serious swimmers swim on Friday mornings - you could meet some extraordinary swimming peeps however regarding water temperature if you are looking for warm water to swim in the news is likely to be all bad......Cape Town swimmers pride themselves for swimming in cold water.....!!

No. Just finished a stay here, there are stickers in the bathroom advising you to time your showers to save water but there are no restrictions.

Yes, breakfast was included in the rate. There is an extensive buffet, I especially loved the oysters and champagne to start the experience. There is also a separate menu which lists items such as Eggs Benedict, which was divine. Overall, a 5 star breakfast in keeping with the whole experience. The staff are attentive and helpful, plates are cleared quickly and beverages topped up as required. You will not be disappointed.

From memory standard check in is at 2pm. But depending on your travel schedule and the room you've booked, they are always more than happy to check you in earlier. Check out is a more relaxed affair in the lovely way South Africa does, but the official time is 11. And no , you don't need to pre-book the Cabana (unless they've changed it recently). As long as you don't go at the height of winter, you'll love it!

"Any with a view of Table Mountain"
"Suite 416....But very expensive!!!"
"Cost-wise, cocktails are a more feasible option than staying the night, but go for it if you've had a recent result."
"Only rooms in the main hotel offer views of Table Mountain"
