We stayed at the hotel in September 2013 and had a wonderful weekend. The location is amazing - the views of the table mountain and the harbour are wonderful and the hotel could not be better located for all the attractions and restaurants at the V&A Waterfront. We had two interleading rooms which were very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The... More

Our 10 day holiday started in CapeTown for 3 nights at this lovely hotel. As other travellers had said the view is superb and the service second to none. The hotel is very well located and the surrounding restaurants are well worth a visit if you can tear yourself away from the hotel ! The breakfast buffet was the best... More

Spent 4 nights at this hotel and found it to be well placed and the room to be comfortable. Our view was of the shopping center opposite the hotel, but the breakfast room had a view of Table Mountain that was breathtaking. Service in the breakfast room was very good: after 4 meals, the staff knew us! The room was... More

If your visiting Cape Town there is no better location and hotel than the Victoria and Alfred. great views of the harbor from the room and the service was excellent. It located within walking distance of shopping and many fine restaurants.

The V&A is in a fantastic location. Service was great; brekky on the balcony exceptional; lovely room overlooking the harbour - would certainly stay there again! Close to everything but very private and special.

I must admit I was not looking forward to visiting South Africa, however I found Cape Town to be very picturesque, the hotel is in a prime position, albeit yes there were renovations going on at the time and yes the complimentary wine, which we did not have due to our experience with the winery tour which soured my tastes...

Enjoyed the location particularly. The views of the waterfront, table mountain, and the carousel at the shops make it extra special. The staff was friendly and helpful. I asked for an additional soap in my room and was told there would be an additional charge! I hope it was just an error of the housekeeping staff.

Renovations were going on while we were there, but to be honest I would have never known it if they hadn't told us so, and offered us a free drink coupon to make up for it. Our beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. The toilet is separate from the bath and shower. The only thing I couldn't figure... More

Our stay at the V & A was too short! From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Our room had a great view of Table Mountain. The location on the Waterfront is perfect for all types of tourists. There are so many activities to do in and around Cape Town; and the... More
