Well located property close to the Waterfront !
Overall a pleasant stay in close proximity to the Waterfront. Excellent service, good facilities and good location. Rooms lacking electricity outlets and beds/duvets needs improvement though!
Jan Dam, au2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Convenient for V & A Waterfront
Commodore is very convenient for the V and A waterfront. The hotel is fine but could do with some refurbishment. Our room had a lovely view From the balcony over the marina and up to Table Mountain but no chairs to sit and take in the view. The bathroom was of reasonable size with walk-in shower. Unfortunately it had been fitted with new door seals so some it wouldn’t open properly. Nice bed linen but mattress becoming a bit soggy.Good breakfast buffet.Seemed a safe area to be wandering around in after dark.

Great location, clean and comfortable
Lovely staff, comfortable room. Shower took a while to heat up which made me feel guilty due to the water situation in Cape Town. Location is extremely convenient, a 3 minute walk to the V&A. Breakfast was not very good. The baked goods were not good at all and the selection is limited.
Maureen, us3 night trip
Good 6.0
Needs a refresh or update, pool area is a hit but grab your preference sun or shade early. Staff could be more friendly, especially breakfast area and check in. Breakfast is great value and tasty.

Staff could not have done any more to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable, it was amazing. Lovely rooms and great location close to V&A waterfront for New Year celebrations.

Fair 4.0
very noisy hotel
The hotel is well located but maybe more appropriate for leisure than a business stay. The breakfast was good and the team was helpful. However, I could not sleep on both nights. First room was ok the road, I could hear the bus stop and everything like I was in the street. They changed it to a room towards the internal patio... was calmer but still could hear anyone who was sitting in the patio. They have a big soundproofing issue. Same with the corridor noise and finally, not possible to put the AC on as the noise from it was beyond possible. All in all quality to price rapport was less than average.
