Everything about this hotel is 5 star. We had a beautiful corner suite on the first floor, which was tastefully furnished and decorated. Beautiful toiletries by Charlotte Rhys - wonderful. The staff were extremely helpful, professional and friendly. We dined in the hotel and food and wines were superb.

Very nice and comfortable smaller, personalized, modern hotel (37 rooms). Spacious suites at appr 55 m2 with nice decor and ample bathroom. Good beds. Very attentive staff. Good BF buffet. Excellent location within V&A Waterfront, however on a hill - therefore more secluded but with good views - even so only 3-5 min walk to the Mall as well as... More

Don't think twice about booking this wonderful hotel, perfectly situated on the waterfront in Capetown. This was our first visit to this wonderful part of Africa and the Queen Victoria Hotel provided a calm, elegant and tranquil oasis from the bustle of the many tourist attractions nearby. The decor was fabulous and the staff where charming. Breakfast selection which is... More

This was our second time in the Queen Victoria Hotel and it was fantastic both times. The hotel is just across the street from the V&A Waterfront with all of its restaurants, bars, shops and activities. The hotel booked a couple of tours for us this time as well. We really enjoyed the Cape Point and Cape Winelands tours and... More

I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in ( and I've been privileged to stay in a few over the years) The bathroom was big, 'cool' design, huge shower and deep bath. Big bedroom, well laid out. Super high cotton count sheets. Public areas stylish. Location, next to the Waterfront. Staff excellent,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Queen Victoria Hotel is the newest addition to Newmark Hotel’s portfolio, which offers a myriad of ideally located upmarket hotels, other accommodation options and restaurants. What sets this unique five-star boutique hotel apart is the attention to detail given by the creative team responsible for its development, who achieved this through their unwavering passion for awe-inspiring design.From the creative brief of ‘where classic elegance meets contemporary design’, every effort has been made to ensure that the 35-room Queen Victoria Hotel is a haven of calm, luxury and understated opulence amongst the hustle and bustle of Cape Town’s popular V&A Waterfront.The interiors create an ambience of peaceful elegance, through the use of greys and taupes, marble-clad walls, crystal chandeliers, white marble and wooden parquet flooring, not to mention the triple-volume foyer with its dramatic white spiral staircase, glass lift and crystal chandeliers. The signature shade of deep purple has been employed to add a touch of regal eccentricity as an ode to the historic figure after whom the hotel is named.From the food and beverage offering at the hotel’s restaurant and bar, Dash, to the interior aesthetic, the Queen Victoria Hotel embodies a sense of international flair fused with local flavour. The menu at Dash is structured around classic French cuisine, with all ingredients sourced locally and seasonally, while ninety per cent of the interior pieces were sourced from local design geniuses.With a management team and staff dedicated to making every guest feel like royalty, a stay at the Queen Victoria Hotel will certainly exceed your expectation of what five-star luxury should be like. ... more   less
