Great location right next to waterfront. Very nice contemporary high ceiling room with a nice bathroom. Good service. You can have breakfast at the hotel or at any of the sister hotels nearby (a small boutique hotel called Dock House and the Victoria & Albert Hotel right on the waterfront). Breakfast at the hotel was good, and we tried Victoria... More

Stayed here in January 2015. We were expecting something a bit more dated and a bit old colonialist style but we were pleasantly surprised at the fusion of sleek modern with plush vintage creating a modern take on classic colonial style. Spacious well designed rooms showing a slightly decadent spin on the old classic furnishings - like a modern candelabra.... More

I really am glad we choose the queen victoria hotel over some of the bigger properties. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the rooms are very large. We had a view overlooking the harbor which was so relaxing. Just across the street (walking distance) is the ferry to Robben Island, as well as many restaurants, a market, and a... More

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely smallish boutique styled hotel. In the Waterfront just opposite the Aquarium above the car park. On arrival the friendly welcoming staff made the check in process very easy and offered us a cold towel and a cool drink. We had a Premier room with a small balcony looking over at Table Mountain.

Stayed at this lovely hotel after our previous hotel was a complete disaster.

We are on a 3 week trip and Cape Town was our first stop - 4 nights at the Queen Victoria. We stayed in room 1207 which has a nice deck and views out to the waterfront and table mountain. The location is very central which allows a quick cab for dinner to all the various excellent restaurants or an... More

We stayed for 3 nights and found the hotel fantastic. The staff couldn't do more for you especially Mo who went over and above the call of duty . If you want a classy, elegant and stylish hotel located only a minute's walk form the hustle and bustle of the V&A Waterfront then this is the one for you. Truly... More

This hotel in the centre of the Waterfront is perfectly placed for exploring Cape Town. Very clean, lovely staff, great bedrooms and very good breakfasts. An abundance of restaurants are within easy walking distance and the shopping malls are great. The sister hotel next door has a small but nice swimming pool in a lovely grassed garden with plenty of... More
