Overview

Dock House Boutique Hotel & Spa is hidden away in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa. With just 5 rooms and 1 suite, this luxurious gem epitomizes what Chic Retreats is all about; personal service and exquisite attention to detail.

This luxury hotel might be small but it certainly packs a punch with large rooms, butler service, gym, swimming pool, manicured gardens, secure parking, and spa.

Activities

It's hard to believe such a small luxury hotel can offer you so much. You can run off your jet lag in the state-of-the-art gym, book yourself into the spa or chill out by the pool bar. The free WiFi is accessible wherever you are in the hotel so you can be working online while working on your tan and no one will know!

If it's your first visit to Cape Town, the full concierge service can make suggestions, organise trips, book restaurants and help with Table Mountain walks and wine tours.

Dining

Sister hotel Queen Victoria is directly opposite Dock House and is home to the restaurant 'Dash', named after Queen Victoria's favourite pet. The fine dining menu changes every few weeks ensuring seasonal products are used and if you like cheese you'll love the home-grown 18-month mature cheddar called Queen Victoria which the chef sourced from a local dairy in Prince Albert.

Breakfast is served from 7 am every day; expect to breakfast like a king with freshly baked pastries, bread and mouth-watering hot dishes including The Waterfront - crispy bacon on raisin toast with warm maple syrup and creme fraiche.
