The location is excellent with very easy access by road or on foot from the harbour area. The style and decor are beautiful; the rooms are a good size and very comfortable. Breakfast is stunning - who ever heard of oysters for breakfast?! The Banting omelette is something to behold and savour.
Dinner in the restaurant is a fine-dining experience but the restaurant is surprisingly quiet, which is a shame - the hotel needs to broadcast it more!
And then the staff - they are brilliant. Always friendly and smiling - nothing is too much trouble. It may be the African way but it is a lovely way.
Stay here please - you will not be disappointed and do use the restaurant.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated in the heart of Cape Town, the Queen Victoria Hotel welcomes guests to experience the very essence of distinguished luxury, where classic elegance meets contemporary design. Its prime location in a quiet, historic precinct near to the V&A Waterfront allows for a serene city escape as well as convenient access to a range of outstanding amenities. The hotel’s regal ambience is felt throughout the property, from its triple-volume foyer with a dramatic spiral staircase and glass lift, crystal chandeliers and marble finishes, to its spacious rooms and breathtaking suites. This grandeur, along with fine touches, expected of five-star properties, and hospitable service have earned the Queen Victoria, also referred to as the QV, recognition as one of the top 25 luxury hotels in South Africa. As its name suggests, this hotel truly is fit for royalty. ... more less
