History and modern luxury merge to create ageless beauty at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, which was built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse. This iconic establishment was named after Queen Victoria and her son, Prince Alfred who played an intrinsic role in the establishment of the Breakwater Basin, now the V&A Waterfront. The hotel is located in the very heart of this internationally acclaimed destination and is a sophisticated retreat amid the buzz. It offers some of the most enviable views of Cape Town Harbour, Table Mountain and the slick city that stretches out at the foot of this Natural Wonder. Timeless elegance and personalised luxury are found at the award-winning Victoria & Alfred Hotel.

There were a few bumps, but overall a really great stay. The front desk staff was exceptional, we had one gentleman that really helped us out during our entire stay, I wish I could remember his name. The breakfast was delicious, and you can't beat the location. Really happy with our stay.

If you are looking for a central hotel in Cape Town then this is the place to book. Its in the center of all the action. Spacious Rooms. The views from the rooms and restaurant are stunning. The red bus pick up is around the corner from the hotel - so just hop on and travel around cape town. Breakfast was lovely. Overall a great hotel in a great location.

It's been nearly 2 decades since I was last in Cape Town and was impressed to see how much more modern it's become. V&A Hotel was in the most popular and touristy neighborhood in Cape Town. Very safe. Tons of nice restaurants. The hotel was clean. Service was professional and rooms were comfy. A solid choice.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to post such a positive review of the V&A Hotel after an absence of nearly 20 years in the Waterfront. The V&A was the first hotel to open in the Waterfront just over 30 years ago and has always strived to stay one step ahead of the massive changes to this precinct since then. We look forward to welcoming you back to the V&A in the not too distant future to enjoy more of our superb location and innovative cuisine at Ginja Restaurant, coupled with our uninterrupted views of Table Mountain overlooking the working harbour.

We staid three days in a room which got upgraded from loft to piazza view room. We really liked the service at the hotel as well as the room which was spacious and had a new bathroom with shower and bathtub. The location is had to beat as you have al the restaurants and cafes as well as tour operators at your doorstep. The restaurant gives you a spectacular view to the waterfront and table mountain. The breakfast was also good and offered a variety of choices.

Nice room with comfy beds and oversized pillows. Bathroom is tight with limited amenities. Service at breakfast is lacking and the chef service at the continental buffet needs addressing - unreasonably slow. Solid 4 star with no surprises. Ginja menu is uninspiring.

Thank you for your detailed feedback about the V&A Hotel! We are pleased that you enjoyed our unique setting in the heart of the Waterfront and are looking into the slow breakfast you experienced at the buffet which is definitely not the norm. We hope to see you back at The V&A Hotel in the not too distant future when it will be our absolute pleasure to welcome you back !
