    Superb

    Very good location, breakfast was lovely.

    The hotel cars were ok but I would advise against using their taxi service as this was disorganised and overcharged for the trips unless charged on account.

    The staff was incredible!!!.... Close to the Waterfront for the tourist shopping and photo ops of the bay.....(My wife didn't like the few panhandlers to and from the Waterfront but I see it as part of the culture...) A cabbie told us of the "Green Market" and the flea market was the best.. Bargaining with all the merchants made the day for me. The room was a little small and crowded for the value but we spent so little time there is was just OK... The staff made up for any short falls in the room size... The rest of the facility was great....Breakfast put weight on me it was so good....John A from US

    Wish the room was a lttle larger but other than that a great stay!!!!

    We recently spent over a week at the Commodore in the v&a Waterfront in Cape Town. We were so pleased we extended the stay. The staff is incredible! Every single person we encountered was exceptional. The Travel Desk, Concierge, restaurant staff and front desk staff all remembered our names and room numbers and were very friendly. The hotel is in a great location, close to everything, and made arrangements for us to go on safari and several day trips. We intended to do these things on our own but the staff was just so accommodating and we ended up using their excellent suggestions. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Cape Town.

    Staff was accommodating, knowledgable and friendly. Very peaceful and Business atmosphere. Hotel has an old world elegance.

    The bathroom shower partition could have been longer to prevent water spillage. The bathroom bath and sink stoppers were not easily operable.

    Convenient location to V &A waterfront and to downtown. We combined the trip with business and meetings with friends. The hotel is beautiful, very clean, and the staff very accommodating. The room we had was a good size and had a balcony overlooking the waterfront.

    Proximity to the Water Front, shopping and other facilities. Swimming pool. Provision of newspapers. Room service. Guest relations department was very helpful. Concierge department excellent.

    Breakfast, although adequate, was not quite as good as in previous years.

    Superb

    Service staff are very helpful and always ready to assist you

    Access via the patio poll area should remain open later. Returning from the waterfront via Portswood Road after diner is not very pleasant..a bit dark and beggars are present harrassing you at times.

    Fabulous

    A comfortable hotel conveniently located close to the Waterfront shops and restaurants. Breakfast was excellent.

    Although the room was comfortable and clean, I would recommend refurbishment in the near future.

    The best thing about Commodore H is the location and the kindness of the employees. I also enjoy the gym, useful and nice space!

    The accomodations were exceptional. The location is within easy walking distance to the waterfront and all it offers to include the ferry out to Robben Island. Having taken the red bus city tour and also the peninsula tour. The Commodore Hotel is the best for "Location, Location, Location".

    The only constructive critcism would be the exterior of the building (plain) does not do justice to the interior design or reflect the quality of service within.
