Pros In the heart of waterfront Good mattress Third floor room quite quite (even if you have only velux instead of real windows; but from the velux you can have a great view on water and table mountain) WI-fi perfectly working Cons It is unacceptable that the concierge wake me up at 6,00 insisting that I asked for such call,...

Wonderful hotel, fantastic location. Buffet breakfast was good but if you like to start the day with bubbly and oysters then I guess it would be amazing. Service at breakfast very patchy when I was there and I felt a couple of the staff in charge felt their job was beneath them which was a great shame as it was... More

It was very relaxing, and the staff were very friendly to us. There was a lot to do in the area, and the scenery was fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone. There are many great restaurants on the area too.

Our suite at the V&A on the waterfront was just stunning! The view over the harbour and out to Table Mountain is not easily forgotten and was such a treat on the first morning of our arrival in Capetown. The staff were friendly and very willing to help with tourism ideas, tickets etc. Loved the large bath and spacious bathroom... More

This hotel is perfectly situated in the Cape Town Waterfront. The service is impeccable and the quality of the food cannot be faulted... The room was spacious and the king size bed very comfortable! The full english buffet breakfast includes oysters, bubbly, quality meats and fresh fruit - The eggs benedict was the best we have had... Overall a brilliant... More

Previous to our holiday, we had heard many good things about the V&A hotel and therefore we were thrilled when our last minute reservation was confirmed. The hotel far exceeded our expectations and vastly added to our whole experience in Cape Town. We only booked for half board therefore only having bed and breakfast, but wow. The rooms were stunning... More

What an amazing hotel in a brilliant location. It was so close to all at the waterfront. We were also able to park our hire car and so had freedom to drive around. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel as there were so many restaurants around the waterfront to try. Breakfast at the hotel however was fantastic. We sat... More

Spent a week at this great location - you step right out onto the vibrant waterfront. From pick-up at the airport to check-out it could not have been better. Take your breakfast outside looking at the fantastic Table Mountain ( i'd forgotten that the sky could be so blue as I live in the ME!) and ,as everyone else has... More

We arrived in the pouring rain and were greeted very efficiently by the front door staff and directed to a parking space in front of the hotel. As we were early our room wasn't yet ready, so they took our bags and we sat down to a delicious lunch while we waited. Raymond, our waiter, took care of us and... More

We were greeted in the car park and our luggage was immediatley taken care of. As we had arrived on an overnight flight, our room was not ready on arrival but we were given coffee and didn't have to wait very long. Unfortunately the rooms on one of the floors were being refurbished so we were in a smaller loft... More
