I stayed with my family here in June. We were given a ‘normal’ room overlooking the big Ferris wheel at the back of the building. The room was easily large enough for our king bed and an extra bed for our 4yr old. There was a separate toilet to the shower and bath room which worked well for us. Occasionally... More

We booked our New Years Eve stay a bit late and ended up having to pay the eye-watering prices at the V&A Hotel. I wouldn't have minded, except that it seriously wasn't worth the money. Half of the rooms overlook the touristy parts of the waterfront, so you're likely to be woken by noise form musical performers or otherwise. All... More

This hotel had been recommended to us by a number of friends and it did not disappoint. The loft room we selected was clean and comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located on the waterfront, and there are many restaurants close-by as well as the hotel restaurant. Breakfast was included in our rate and it was excellent - a buffet as...

Room was very comfortable, breakfast (included) was excellent. Staff very helpful and location perfect for wandering the waterfront, taking the hop on hop off bus tours. Restaurant was fine for dinner, though there are many other choices on the waterfront

Nice hotel but getting old Room was not so clean as you can expect for this kind of hotel Asked for a non smoking and got a smoking one; smelly Insulation is poor; so you feel cold air constantly Noise proofing is poor too. You'd hear any water being flushed or flowed from neighbor rooms Other than that hotel in... More

Stayed here 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Amazing location, a very lively area. There are many things to do around and a lot of restaurants too. The view of the waterfront from my room was great. You'll enjoy amazing views during breakfast too. The breakfast service was a slow on couple of occasions because they were understaffed, but the... More

This hotel is by far the best located in Cape Town. The harbour / marine is just a buzz with atmosphere with loads of resteraunts and bars. All outstanding and too many to choose from. Our room was large and spacious with the most spectacular views over the harbour, and looking up to Table Mountain. What a view when we... More

My wife and I stayed at the Victoria and Alfred for 5 nights while waiting to board a Princess cruise. The location was outstanding, with plenty to do locally. We did not feel unsafe at any time, even when strolling the area at night (lots of activity). Our room was facing the water with a clear, unobstructed view of Table... More
