Our best hotel experience
Simply the best hotel experience we've ever enjoyed (and we've enjoyed a lot). Everything from when you pull-up, check-in, breakfast (seriously - best hotel breakfast we've enjoyed) and the service and amenities throughout the stay. Kids club is superb, pool is superb, food is superb, location is superb, view is superb. The best place we could want to be during Covid19 (which they handle professionally and calmly). There is honestly not one thing I can find to fault One and Only Cape Town.
