The convenient and quiet location at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, with views over the harbour to Table Mountain, is just part of the Commodore Hotel’s appeal. Comfortable and modern, it offers excellent value for money and is a perfect base for visitors exploring Cape Town and for business travellers wanting an efficient stay in a safe area. The vibrant V&A Waterfront offers a whole host of shopping, dining and entertainment, boat trips to Robben Island, and is a short distance to the beaches, and close to the museums and galleries of historic Cape Town.
The Commodore’s 236 rooms are decorated with a nautical theme to match the waterfront location, some of them looking over the harbour and Table Mountain, others over the central courtyard and swimming pool. The rooms are spacious with armchairs and writing desk and all the modern conveniences of air-conditioning, safe, TV with Dstv and tea and coffee facilities. The Business class rooms boast the best views from their balconies on the 5th and 6th floors and have internet access, and the Executive suites on the higher floors have balconies, a lounge and dining area and panoramic views over the city.
The comfortable reception rooms provide a peaceful environment to meet friends or enjoy a cocktail in the bar before dinner at the Clipper restaurant, which is à la carte dining with an African flavour and Asian influences. A generous buffet breakfast and light lunch menu is also to be taken here, or on the terrace in warm weather. There is 24 hour room service for travellers arriving late.
Relaxing beside the swimming pool is a lovely way to cool down on hot days, or guests can have a change of scene at the nearby Portswood hotel pool, a sister hotel to the Commodore. A massage can be booked at the wellness centre, there is a small gym or guests can enjoy a run along the promenade and enjoy the fresh sea air while they exercise.
Altogether the Commodore offers affordable luxury in an excellent location with friendly service and all the modern conveniences.
