This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff were uniformly wonderful. Central location was great - Waterfront on the doorstep. Not cheap but worth every penny. Best breakfast I have ever seen as well - almost too much!

Me and my wife stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary. Previously we've stayed at The Cape Grace and while this hotel isn't in that bracket it's still an excellent choice for Cape Town. Located just off the waterfront it's very convenient for that part of town. All the staff are really helpful and friendly - I liked Oswell on... More

The hotel is beautifully decorated. The rooms are large with fabulous bathrooms. Food was lovely. Breakfasts small selection but all you could want. Nicely presented and well cooked. if you want to be close to the V&A waterfront this is one to consider. There were a few muck ups but this was due to a new staff member who was... More

Four of us stayed four nights over the 2015/16 New Year period. We all thought it was a little gem, very comfortable, friendly staff, good breakfast nothing seemed too much trouble. There are no pool or sunbathing facilities on hand, but they do have two sister hotels close by that offer these facilities including a beauty treatment centre. It tends... More

We found the front desk staff to be very responsive and helpful, especially Tendaii. The hotel is small and quiet so you don't feel like you are packed in with other guests. The breakfast buffet fantastic. Location can't be beat if you want to be close the harbour...walk down the stairs and you are there. I was hoping this would... More

We were very excited for our stay at the Queen Victoria hotel. The excitement didn't last long. The front desk staff are not the most friendly group of people. They do not make you feel welcome. Once our room was ready we were brought to a main level corner room near the kitchen. The room was big but was painted... More

A great boutique-style hotel, neatly tucked away, but still extremely close to the vibrant waterfront. The hotel staff, particularly those on the front desk and front door are particularly friendly and helpful: they assisted us plan what to do each day and even walked us to the waterfront restaurants in the evening. There a small gym, a choice of three... More
