We stayed in the Queen Victoria for four nights in the middle of July. This was the start of a three week honeymoon during which we would travel over towards Port Elizabeth and beyond. We could not speak highly enough of the staff particularly and the hotel. We were treated so well and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nelson, the porter... More

My husband and I stayed here with a group of friends while we were touring around the area. This hotel has beautiful rooms, amazing service, friendly staff and a great turn down service. The hotel offers breakfast and has a choice of a buffet or ordering from the menu. Give yourself plenty of time, as things take a bit. The... More

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, great location, less than 5 minutes walk to V & A mall. Very safe even at night, Dash Restaurant has excellent food! Clean amenities, I loved the daily sweet treats I found by my bedside every evening! The staff happily helped us to organize our daily excursions! We had a very delightful stay here!!

We were very happy with the location of the hotel, it was recommended to us by our church pastor who visited last year on a missions trip. The rooms were comfortable and the staff helpful without being pushy. We used the hotel to help book us a safari trip which was good but a little expensive for what it was.... More

You can't go wrong by choosing to stay at this stunning hotel. Very spacious rooms with lovely views (only some of the rooms have Table mountain views). If you are staying at Queen Victoria, you can choose to have breakfast at the sister hotel Victoria & Alfred Hotel with the views of the waterfront. The large beds were very comfortable.... More

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
