5 star hotel at 4 star prices. ”
From the moment you enter into the spacious, cool, lobby you are met with 5 star treatment. The staff are unassuming and helpful. I felt as if I was aboard a luxury liner. Worth upgrading to a junior suite if you can as the other rooms are not large. The bar fridge, room service, laundry, I called... they came. Sumptuous bed was indicative of the standard of everything to do with this hotel., comfortable, clean, bright and light.. what was there, worked. What wasn’t simply had to be asked for. The option of swimming and dining at their ‘sister hotel’ adjacent just added to the feeling of ‘holiday resort’ not a 5 minute walk to the ever popular V&A Waterfront with a myriad of bars, extensive shopping experience and restaurants serving everything from fresh caught lobster to Ostrich and even McDonalds. If you have one destination in mind next year and it’s Cape Town, don’t waste your time snd money going anywhere else...this is every inch a 4 star hotel...run by 5 star people.

Very good location for V&A”
Close to the entrance of V&A. Very nice entrance. Hall. When checking in staff was friendly and quick, not so much when checking out. They did not even look up. Parking was included which was great, we walked from there. Very hot in the room, we could not figure out how to make it cooler. By then we were in nighties and did not want to bother staff, so I opened a window facing courtyard. Had to put up with noisiness then. We did not eat there as there are so many place at the Waterfront. Staff not sure whether they should help us with luggage when checking out. We did not want to leave yet and they kept asking us to bring the car around. Eventually 2 helped to take luggage to car park. Figure out aircon and plugs when you arrive so they can help with that before it’s too late.

Time to refurbish some areas”
The toilet was not mounted on the wall correctly, the staff took care. In the end it did not do the job. We were only there one night. We had a room to the road. The curtain closed took more of the noise of the road, than the window did... And then they brought the wrong car for us on the day of our leave out of the parking area...

Perfect location, clean rooms, awesome breakfast!”
This hotel is located Waterfront which is probably the safest town in Cape Town. I booked this accommodation super last minute because I got robbed in Long Street and I got really paranoid so I booked a hotel room. Best decision I've done the whole trip! It is near the Cape Town Port which is such a beautiful place with the perfect view of Table Mountain! Another best thing is it's near awesome restaurants especially Belthazar! Loved it there! Oh it's super near the hop on-hop off main station so you it was super convenient! So yeah I love this hotel! :) I'll definitely stay again if I ever go to Cape Town again.

Truly a lovely hotel. Although the hotel is little bit dated, room is clean, spacious and the staff is friendly and helpful. Location is very near the harbour. Breakfast spread was good but remains the same for the 3 days we were there. We would still choose this hotel if we are to visit cape town again.

Convenient location – great breakfast
Five stars (may be four stars) hotel is in VA water front area. The hotel location is convenient near the harbor, shopping center, restaurants, and red bus city tour. A park is not far too, about 20 min walk. Once reached the park, the other end of the park is the ocean. It is nice to walk along the ocean side walk. The rooms are of five stars standards and modern style relatively large. The Check-in and checkout is easy without any hassle. The breakfast is excellent with variety of choices. Staff is very friendly and speaks good English.

Somewhat run down hotel very close to V&A waterfront, but disinterested staff & scam artist”
The room was small and a bit dated with aircon unit by the window, but it did work well. Breakfast buffet reasonable but staff were disinterested - we had to hunt down coffee 3 of the 4 days. Location looked good but there was a small not well travelked block on the way back from the V&A waterfront where we were sandwiched by 2 people wanting money. We were given another route to use when we asked about it - why wasn't this suggested when we checked in? Travel desk was excellent and efficient. Worst experience was at the end when we asked the concierge to call a taxi which the front desk had said would only cost about 320rand to the airport if we wanted to pay cash - better than the hotel arranged car at 495 rand. Only after the concierge put us and luggage into the taxi did we realize there was no meter and sure enough, at the airport the driver wanted 690 rand. We paid only the hotel arranged price but we're disgusted that the hotel concierge set this up.

3rd party services terrible....”
Hotel is fine and great location but i used their car park services and my car got vandalised. I also used their cleaners and were charged an absolute fortune. When mentioning both issues to the manager they just replied "car park and cleaning are third party so nothing to do with us". Need to take responsibility for all hotel services.

We had a one-night stay at the Commodore, but wished that we could have stayed longer,”
The location is superb, right on the Waterfront, with easy access to the sights and amenities of Cape Town. Our car was parked for us, and returned promptly when needed. The staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. The bedrooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The bar area is delightful, with a nautical theme in wood and brass. The best bit is the dining area and service; we enjoyed a lovely breakfast, with friendly and attentive service from the staff. Thank you very much. We will return!

Location and proximity to V & A area”
The location of this is a big plus point as it is near the V & A area. It is literally 3 to 5 minutes away. The V & A area is the heartbeat of the city if you only have a few days to spare. We got a room with a view of Table Mountain. That was priceless. The room is fairly large but amenities are sufficient. However the only downside of this hotel are the people. Check in was impersonal and I have always felt that these people are the front line and should always make guests feel welcome. The travel desk and in particular a lady by the name of Lorian was condescending and arrogant. She was not a pleasant person to be dealing with and she made you feel that it was not her job to help or entertain you. The best people in the hotel are those at the restaurant serving breakfast in the morning and also at the Bar. They are the ones that made our day because they are enthusiastic about their work and they are the true ambassadors of the hotel. Nothing is too difficult for them. Well done.

Another fantastic experience.”
The Commodore once again proved to be a fantastic hotel. The location of this hotel, next to the V & A Waterfront is simply amazing. We stayed for 10 days and there was always something to do. The hotel is beautifully clean, the staff are friendly and provide brilliant service. The breakfast in the courtyard outside, is one of the best we have experienced. We have now stayed here three times and would highly recommend it.
