Dock House

Dock House

Built as the grand residence and offices to the harbour engineer in the mid-1800’s, Dock House boasts a proud heritage. Dock House is located alongside Timeball Tower in the V&A Waterfront’s Portswood Precint and now, under the guidance of distinguished hotel specialists, Horizon Hotels, this heritage property has undergone a transformation to be recognised as one of Cape Town’s most elite luxury boutique hotels.
