We booked at the very last minute and got an amazing deal. Queen Victoria Hotel is a small, very elegant 5-star hotel just on the edge of the V&A Waterfront where there are of course other 5-star hotels which are also very gorgeous but eye-wateringly expensive. QVH was exceptional value for money. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and we would single out Simon, the lobby porter, for special mention as a Top Bloke! His broad smile will remain with us.
Our room was beautiful with the best hotel bed we have slept in for some years (seriously). Unfortunately we couldn't use the bath owing to the water shortage but the shower was great and the dressing gowns! One of us is over 6 feet tall and this was the first hotel dressing gown to fit him properly since about 2010. That earns QVH the fifth star. There was a bit of corridor noise from staff during the night, probably because our room on the ground floor (1102) was opposite some staff rooms; if we stay again I'll request a room higher up and you may wish to do that too.
We had a great breakfast and a good club sandwich in the bar. Sadly we only stayed one night so didn't have the chance to try the restaurant. When we return to Cape Town this hotel will be our choice. It really is a great place. All that the V&A Waterfront offers is within a short walk but the only noise that carried across was African street music, and who's going to complain about that?
Thanks Queen Victoria. We were delighted we found you.
