This review should be read in the context of the room rates this hotel is charging. If the hotel is going to charge room rates equivalent to a stay in NYC or London four star establishment, the service should be on par or better. I found the design of the hotel be good and the pool area at the next...

We have just spent 4 nights at this lovely hotel and have enjoyed it very much. Our room was large and well appointed. Amenities are top rate, and the service from every employee we encountered was consistently warm, friendly and polite. I would give the hotels 5 starts but for the absence of slippers in the room, surprisingly scratchy towels...

This was our second stay at this hotel and it was every bit as good the second time. We had a lovely, spacious, well-appointed first floor room with a view of Table Mountain. The facilities are excellent including outdoor relaxation space with a pool and a bar service. Breakfast, included in our rate, was very good with a wide range...

Situated only a couple of minutes from the quay, but quiet. There are three boutique hotels owned by the same company and you use the lovely pool and grounds . The guys there make a mean mojito. The spa was great with a really professional team Room 1011 is a very nice ground floor location with great bath & shower....

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in. The location is perfect; handy for the waterfront but set back slightly so less noisy. The restaurant Dash is excellent. The room and bathroom were gorgeous. The only downside is that it is also the most expensive hotel we have ever stayed in!

The hotel and surrounding buildings are in a colonial style and the location, a three minute walk to the waterfront and the same to the Citi Bus stop for City Tours, is ideal. The Waterfront was abuzz with live music but it is just far enough away from the hotel to be out of hearing distance. The hotel itself offers...

We had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel for 4 nights over new year. The Waterfront area was extremely busy during the festive season and this hotel provided a great base to enjoy the attractions without being in the hustle and bustle of the crowds. Our room was lovely with great views of the fireworks on NYE.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Queen Victoria Hotel is the newest addition to Newmark Hotel’s portfolio, which offers a myriad of ideally located upmarket hotels, other accommodation options and restaurants. What sets this unique five-star boutique hotel apart is the attention to detail given by the creative team responsible for its development, who achieved this through their unwavering passion for awe-inspiring design.From the creative brief of ‘where classic elegance meets contemporary design’, every effort has been made to ensure that the 35-room Queen Victoria Hotel is a haven of calm, luxury and understated opulence amongst the hustle and bustle of Cape Town’s popular V&A Waterfront.The interiors create an ambience of peaceful elegance, through the use of greys and taupes, marble-clad walls, crystal chandeliers, white marble and wooden parquet flooring, not to mention the triple-volume foyer with its dramatic white spiral staircase, glass lift and crystal chandeliers. The signature shade of deep purple has been employed to add a touch of regal eccentricity as an ode to the historic figure after whom the hotel is named.From the food and beverage offering at the hotel’s restaurant and bar, Dash, to the interior aesthetic, the Queen Victoria Hotel embodies a sense of international flair fused with local flavour. The menu at Dash is structured around classic French cuisine, with all ingredients sourced locally and seasonally, while ninety per cent of the interior pieces were sourced from local design geniuses.With a management team and staff dedicated to making every guest feel like royalty, a stay at the Queen Victoria Hotel will certainly exceed your expectation of what five-star luxury should be like. ... more   less
