The property was beautiful and the location near the wharf was wonderful. There were only ~35 rooms so the hotel was never too busy and it was easy to sit for breakfast service. The front desk service was ok, slightly below par for the price of the hotel but still average. Recommend staying here if you want to be near the wharf.

Had a lovely stay at the QV at the end of a self drive tour of the eastern cape, and the hotel fitted the bill perfectly. From our first contact arriving at the door, to departure for the airport, all staff were superb, welcoming, efficient and friendly without fail and should be highly commended.
The hotel restaurant "Dash" serves first class food in the evenings and the tasting menu is exceptional, and a credit to the new young executive chef. Well done.
Like some others our stay was spoiled by the impact of the wedding of a family member of the owners which effectively put the public areas, garden and pool area, and evening dining room out of bounds for two days of or stay. Had this been declared at booking, we would have booked another hotel, and the comments from the manager on other reviews about being understanding, only serve to underline the lack of consideration to paying guests, with a take it or leave it attitude. Any other decent 5 star hotel would have made arrangements for inconvenienced quests, and at the very least made some offer of recompense, but this was not even considered which was sad because it undermined the great work of all hotel, and sullied good memories of our stay. Maybe not too late to remedy with guests impacted, but given previous attitude, I would not hold out much hope. Very poor, and explains the 4 star grading at the very most.

Good Morning

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay at the Queen Victoria Hotel and Manor House. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Queen Victoria. We are very excited about our new Chef, Albert, and his food is getting great reviews

The team and I truly are passionate about the experience our guests receive and I am happy to hear that that we were able to add value to your time in Cape Town.

We sincerely apologies for the inconvenience caused by the wedding ceremony. This was unfortunately a very last minute decision to assist due to extreme winds experienced on the day in the city and as a result the original outdoor venue was not able to accommodate the ceremony.

We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the near future.

Kind Regards

This is my second stay at The Queen Victoria in 12 months and both occasions have been extremely pleasant. The staff could not be more friendly or helpful. The rooms are nicely decorated spacious and provide everything you could need. The restaurant offers excellent food and service., and the breakfast is particularly good. I throughly recommend this hotel is you are looking for a small boutique hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be quiet and well appointed.
