We arrived at the Queen Victoria Hotel at 10:30 pm after a looooooonnnnggg flight from Atlanta. We were met in the lobby by two very gracious gentlemen. They brought us hot chocolate "to soothe you from your travels" and upgraded us to a suite. The hotel is beautiful and very well located. The best dinner that we had in CT... More

A lovely, modern hotel which is very well placed for exploring the V & A waterfront - a 3 minute walk to the big wheel. Our room and bathroom were spacious & the variety of food at breakfast was very good. Not a great deal of choice on the dinner or in-room menus but probably understandable given the hotel's proximity... More

From the name you might expect to find a somewhat old style establishment, but in fact this is a small friendly modern style boutique hotel situated on a slightly elevated position with views over Table Mountain. On arrival we received a very warm welcome at check-in before being shown to our room, which was very large, spotlessly clean, comfortable and,... More

We stayed at the Queen Victoria for our recent honeymoon. Hotel is beautiful, with large room and noticeably clean. Nothing special for a view though. Fantastic location! All staff we interacted with were just delightful. There were a few instances of miscommunication though, especially on check out. A number of room service and mini bar charges hadn't been processed to... More

Day 1 : we requested the assistance from the hotel to get us a booking at a restaurant. Someone at reception said they'd do so and revert , but we never heard back. We were on our honeymoon and there was no welcome acknowledgement of that fact entirely. Of course we weren't expecting anything much, maybe a simple card would... More

This luxurious boutique hotel is located in the V&A Waterfront area but in the quieter part and away from the crowds. The interiors are modern and elegant with some Victorian-era (late 19th century) finishings. Service is excellent and personalised. Room was very spacious, well appointed and tastefully done. Bathroom was well-equipped - comes with a spacious bathtub together with separate... More

This is a very pretty, sophisticted, minimalist property with a great location that was booked for us by Rhino Africa. We stayed 4 nights at the start of our journey.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Queen Victoria Hotel is the newest addition to Newmark Hotel’s portfolio, which offers a myriad of ideally located upmarket hotels, other accommodation options and restaurants. What sets this unique five-star boutique hotel apart is the attention to detail given by the creative team responsible for its development, who achieved this through their unwavering passion for awe-inspiring design.From the creative brief of ‘where classic elegance meets contemporary design’, every effort has been made to ensure that the 35-room Queen Victoria Hotel is a haven of calm, luxury and understated opulence amongst the hustle and bustle of Cape Town’s popular V&A Waterfront.The interiors create an ambience of peaceful elegance, through the use of greys and taupes, marble-clad walls, crystal chandeliers, white marble and wooden parquet flooring, not to mention the triple-volume foyer with its dramatic white spiral staircase, glass lift and crystal chandeliers. The signature shade of deep purple has been employed to add a touch of regal eccentricity as an ode to the historic figure after whom the hotel is named.From the food and beverage offering at the hotel’s restaurant and bar, Dash, to the interior aesthetic, the Queen Victoria Hotel embodies a sense of international flair fused with local flavour. The menu at Dash is structured around classic French cuisine, with all ingredients sourced locally and seasonally, while ninety per cent of the interior pieces were sourced from local design geniuses.With a management team and staff dedicated to making every guest feel like royalty, a stay at the Queen Victoria Hotel will certainly exceed your expectation of what five-star luxury should be like. ... more   less
