I only stayed one night but felt I should write a review. I got a loft room with a beautiful view of the mountain and the harbour. Bathroom was modern with lovely toiletries. Wifi kept dropping in and out which was my only complaint (this seems to be an issue at South African hotels - had exactly the same experience... More

I am very rarely moved to write reviews. The normal reason to do so is an excellent or appalling experience. In this case the hotel is pleasant enough, well-located and reasonable value. However.......(you knew something was coming didn't you??!!) the wi-fi is absolutely shocking and really not what you would expect from a hotel of this calibre. If you need... More

Great place, location, service and value for money. Right in the heart of Waterfront with views of harbor and in our case, Table Mountain. Very close to excellent restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. Had 4 nights there and wish we had been able to stay 3-4 more. Had day tours to Winelands and Cape Point with &Beyond travel guide who provided... More

This hotel was amazing in terms of its location, service, meals! From our room we could see Table top mountain and the wharf where seals would lay out in the evening. We could walk to the dock to catch ferry to Robben island, to the aquarium and to the wharf side mall with great shopping and excellent restaurants. The breakfast... More

The V&A Hotel on the Waterfront provides a comfortable place to rest your head. Anticipate late nights if your staying for fun. Situated walking distance from the Waterfront's restaurants and shops, this hotel offers travellers just one more option in a sea of hotels with similar levels of amenities. If you can get a better rate here than at the... More

On others advice, as a solo woman traveler, I chose to stay right on the waterfront. This is a great location! It adjoins a tourist area with pubs, a ferris wheel, shops, a mall and lots of fast food and restaurants. Very busy and well lit - easy to go grab some chicken, pizza, burger, etc. Going the other direction... More

The V&A hotel was incredibly welcoming and friendly. Our rooms overlooked the marina and were very spacious. The location is wonderful and the food was delicious. Excellent selection for breakfast and it is possible to sit outside with fantastic views of Table Mountain. The rooms were very well equipped and the bed very comfortable. Ideally located for visiting the Western... More
