The Commodore Hotel

Cape Town

Days 1 - 3: Cape Town

The Commodore Hotel Location Map

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Town is consistently voted amongst the top cities in the world to visit and it is no surprise that this wonderful city is one of the highlights of a holiday to South Africa. The climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot summers.

One of the main tourist attractions is the tastefully restored V&A Waterfront with its many shops, bars and restaurants. There is also an aquarium and one of the largest craft markets in Southern Africa. Boats offer tours of the harbour from the quayside and the whole place is always buzzing with life and activity. The City Bowl is home to many museums and historical buildings which can all be viewed from a 'topless' hop on/hop off tourist bus, complete with interesting commentary as you ride around the city.

The adventurous can climb up (or abseil down) Table Mountain, windsurf or kitesurf at Bloubergstrand Beach, dive in shark tanks, or do any one of a dozen more adrenalin pumping activities. For a more relaxed pace of life, there are miles of sandy beaches for soaking up the African sun, or enjoy a quiet stroll through the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Overlooking the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, with views of Table Mountain, Robben Island and the harbour, the Commodore Hotel offers stylish living and a quality service that ensures guests return year after year.

The V&A Waterfront is a 5 minute walk away, offering guests an abundance of experiences. Indoor shopping and entertainment venues seamlessly merge with ocean vistas and mountain views and the fresh sea breeze and warm African sun add to the cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere.

When not out and about exploring the sights of Cape Town, sit back and relax in the tranquil surroundings of the pool area and enjoy a sundowner or an afternoon nap whilst soaking up the sun. Food may also be ordered at the pool from the restaurant menu. The Casuarina Spa is located on the 1st floor of the hotel, and there is also a fully equipped gym.

The Clipper Restaurant serves a buffet breakfast and offers a la carte lunch and dinner. Scale models of ships, as well as artwork, remind patrons of these glorious vessels that once sailed the oceans.

The Commodore offers 236 elegantly furnished rooms and suites. All rooms have air-conditioning and are bright, spacious and decorated in a nautical theme. Guests can choose from Standard Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Executive Rooms and King Suites.
