Having a room with a perfect view of a World Heritage site is hard to put into words, but when you add the sleepy harbor just a stone's throw away, and the seals gracefully entertaining passersby, the smell of the ocean all while ensconced in a very spacious and meticulously clean hotel room, it becomes even more difficult. Located on... More

Right where do we start, we had requested a mountain view room and the view of the harbour and Table Mountain didn't disappoint, in fact they were awesome!!! The room (201) was very large with bathroom and seperate toilet. We could sit in the window and watch the Cape Grey Seals in the harbour. We were slightly concerned about the... More

What a great hotel! Fantastic location, nice and efficient staff, very clean. I took a group of 23 to V&A for a week. They arranged group check-in that took almost no time. Very accommodating. Good breakfast. Couldn't ask for a better location.

First time in South Africa celebrating our wedding anniversary on a DIY holiday; perfect choice to start our holiday for location and ease to get to from airport in hire car. The Waterfront was a great place to walk around in the evening and central for trips out; breakfast good although occasionally staff "forgot" about you but this was really... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in glorious room over looking the harbour and Table Mountain. Very comfortable & quiet despite being in the centre of the main tourist area for shops & restaurants. Reception & porter staff were friendly & helpful. So this would have been a 5* review except the service at breakfast, every day, was disorganised and unhelpful.... More

Great location right in the heart of the tourist area, so easy to walk around the docks, get to all the main tourist attrractions and see Table Mountain from below. We loved our room looking out over the harbour (with seals) and the mountain. Staff were very helpful, particularly concierge and parking. Great breakfast. We walked to the pool in... More

Stayed 5 nights in March of 2014 with my son. The room was spacious - the bathroom was okay - could use with some updating. But the location was excellent - walking distance to many wonderful restaurants, and waterfront activities. The breakfast buffet (included) was great! Add the wonderful views of the harbor and Table Mountain and its a winner.

Everything perfect except for internet bandwidth. In a hotel of that league I simply expect a bandwidth that is high enough to stream videos. Especially good is the location direct at the waterfront. Breakfast buffet is superb. Warm dishes are made to order.

A lovely hotel right on the waterfront with comfortable rooms. No pool or gym on site and a bit of a trek to the other side of the road for the shared pool which was rather small. Water in the bathrooms only lukewarm.

I stayed with a friend at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel. We had a nice view over Table Mountain and the harbor. The hotel was nice and the staff was kind and helpful.
