Dock House Boutique Hotel Menu

A stone’s throw from the alluring V&A Waterfront, located alongside the Time Ball Tower, Dock House Boutique Hotel offers the ideal balance between convenience and complete privacy. The hotel’s charming 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.

About Cape Town Central

Cape Town, otherwise known as “The Mother City”, is a cherished destination among locals and internationals alike. It has, in recent years, been named the best place in the world to visit by leading international media – and the reasons for this are unmistakable. The central region of this city comprises a number of sought-after attractions and suburbs: The V&A Waterfront region and harbour remain abuzz all year round, the CBD boasts world-class establishments and attractions that appeal to both business and leisure travellers, and the Atlantic Seaboard – just minutes from the CBD – offers a laid-back seaside setting.

The region’s Mediterranean climate makes for pleasant summers, although winds can pick up. Notwithstanding Cape Town’s unpredictable weather, which has earned it the reputation of having four seasons in one day, the city experiences an average of over 3 000 hours of sunshine a year. Winters are typically rainy, but the city takes on a cosy, European atmosphere which is easily appreciated alongside a fireplace.

About Cape Town, South Africa

From the initial arrival, where we were welcomed as we parked in front of the hotel, to the final au revoir as we departed, the staff could not have been more attentive. The room and large en-suite were very clean and the view of the Cape Wheel from the balcony was very wonderful. The location of the Dock House Boutique Hotel is perfect, just on the edge of the V&A Waterfront.

Tucked away in a corner on elevated grounds overlooking the V&A Waterfront, the Dock House offered a truly unique and luxurious experience especially when we arrived, not knowing what to expect with this being our first visit to Cape Town. Our needs were served down to the tiniest details and the staff absolutely spoilt us…

We arrived in Cape Town and coming to this hotel which after a twelve hour flight was like heaven. The staff are truly wonderful, nothing is too much trouble for any of them. They have six rooms and happy to find ours was a suite, with sitting room, bedroom, bathroom and private terrace. It's quiet, relaxing and the manager Michelle is very nice…
