Stayed overnight in the loft rooms - ours faced the mountain, the children faced the sea - very well appointed rooms with lovely bathrooms. Service was excellent and the breakfast was delicious - we sat outside watching a seal swim in the harbor with Table Mountain as a backdrop. Parking was included so we could walk to all the nearby...

This is really a very special hotel. Looks as you are back into the victorian times. I've had the luck to get a room with harbor and table mountain view. Really something special. You see the ship moving and have a beautifull view to the table mountain. Only kick back is the noise as the windows are not anymore tight... More

A welcoming and comfortable place to stay after being on several safaris. Great location, great restaurants on the waterfront and reasonable prices. This hotel has champagne and oysters for breakfast.

Close to the heart of Cape Town. Placed on the Water Front with lots of activities for couples, families and kids. As well close to shopping and beaches. Hotel itself is wonderfully maintained and an excellent experience. Highly recommended in CT.

My wife and I stayed here before heading to Victoria Falls and Botswana. The location of this hotel is simply perfect. It is located in the heart of Cape Town's Water Front District. The design and layout of the hotel resembles the Victorian Era, with the hotel cafe/restaurant extending out to the boardwalk with the spectacular views of the harbor... More

The V&A hotel is perfectly located on the waterfront, and if anything, it may prove to be a bit too noisy for those seeking some rest and quiet. Cape Town is not a place to rest and stay quiet, though, and I found the hotel a perfect place to start a 2-week motorcycle trip around South Africa and Swaziland. Definitely... More

I had not been back to Capetown in over a decade so I searched hard for the right place to spend a few days. This hotel is just fabulous. I had a wonderful view of Table Mountain and the harbor. The room was very spacious with a sitting area, wonderful bathroom and amenities. Great servibar and iron--which can be hard... More

This hotel really is a gem in the middle of the Waterfront. The setting is beautiful, book a harbour / mountain view to really appreciate the location. Sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets on Table Mountain. Fantastic breakfasts and excellent service. We will be back again next year. Thank you, Louise & Lee.

Had a lovely experience here. The room was very well appointed and we were very spoiled by the house keepers who popped in a couple of times a day. Free Wifi the whole 4 days!! We had an incident when the legendary winds picked up during the second night and the roof was squeaking loudly, my hubby called the night... More

The wind or "The Cape Doctor" as us locals fondly call it, can rustle things up. We are glad that our team handled this well for you and thank for sharing with us. Kind regards Rey More

We booked this hotel back in August fro a trip in December. We got a good deal to begin with but as we got closer to the trip prices dropped even more. We were here for 6 nights. Upon arrival we were upgraded from no view to mountain view. The view was spectacular! We were hoping for a good hotel... More
