Excellent and Value for Money
We stayed here based on word of mouth from colleagues in Australia. We are very glad that we listened to them. The Commodore Hotel was excellent and very good value for money. The room was very comfortable and we had a great view out towards Table Mountain. The breakfast buffet every morning was excellent and the two times that we had room service was also very good (and hot). The location is fantastic in terms of proximity to the V&A Waterfront and also Sea Point promenade.
