Enjoy Accommodation Within Walking Distance to The V&A Waterfront At The Commodore Hotel From Only R 960 Per Person Sharing Per Night

Cape Town is considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful cities. The city is surrounded by ancient mountains, some of which appear to rise out of the deep Atlantic Ocean, others fringe the edge of the city and are tipped with snow for part of the year. The area is a paradise for tourists, so when planning your trip make sure you give yourself enough time to sightsee.

Take a ride up Table Mountain in a revolving cable car, visit a few of our many wine estates, some of which are nestled in the valleys within the metropolitan area. A trip around the Cape Peninsula, over Chapman’s Peak will leave you breathless. In addition to our natural wonders we also have museums, galleries, parks, a planaterium, glitzy shopping malls and so much more.

Escapism is not only a state of mind; it’s a place at the cosmopolitan Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town. That place is The Commodore, a Legacy hotel where stylish living, excellent service and a tranquil setting comes standard. Enjoy breathtaking views of the charming ‘Mother City’ from the upper floors of the hotel’s superior rooms or treat yourself to cocktails on the terrace.

The Commodore offers 236 elegantly furnished standard rooms and suites. All rooms have individual air conditioning, tea and coffee making facilities, bathroom with toilet and separate bath and shower, direct dialling phones, electric razor plugs, hair dryers, DStv and 24-hour room service.

Dining

Chef Rob Creaser has created a truly amazing menu especially for the Clipper Restaurant. Born in England, he moved to Cape Town at a very young age. After completing his schooling at Wynberg Boys’ High School, he joined the South African Navy for National Service.

Once Rob had finished his two-year chef training, he decided to return to England, where his first introduction to cooking was at the Epsom Derby. After that, he spent a further six years in England working and learning as he went, and ending up at Woking, which had two restaurants and banqueting facilities.

“You need to move away from Cape Town to appreciate the beauty of it,” says Rob. Upon his return to Cape Town, Rob took up a position at the famous Mount Nelson Hotel, working under the direction of Garth Stroebel.

After completing two years there he moved on to the Victoria Junction Hotel where he was promoted to Head Chef. An awesome experience followed for Rob when he became Executive Chef at Londolozi Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands. In between then and The Commodore, Rob took a year off to travel through Asia. Here he came across a variety of different flavours that inspired a lot of his creative cooking.

Originally setting sail for the Caribbean, Rob was approached by the Commodore for the position of Executive Chef. “I have developed a natural passion for food and I truly enjoy what I do. At the Clipper Restaurant I try to perfect food by using the freshest ingredients and keeping it simple. The menu is varied with influences from Asia and Africa. I try and create ideas that are new and different, there are few things that feel better than when you try a new dish and everything just works!”
