Situated in the heart of Cape Town, the Queen Victoria Hotel welcomes guests to experience the very essence of distinguished luxury, where classic elegance meets contemporary design. Its prime location in a quiet, historic precinct near to the V&A Waterfront allows for a serene city escape as well as convenient access to a range of outstanding amenities. The hotel’s regal ambience is felt throughout the property, from its triple-volume foyer with a dramatic spiral staircase and glass lift, crystal chandeliers and marble finishes, to its spacious rooms and breathtaking suites. This grandeur, along with fine touches, expected of five-star properties, and hospitable service have earned the Queen Victoria, also referred to as the QV, recognition as one of the top 25 luxury hotels in South Africa. As its name suggests, this hotel truly is fit for royalty.

This is the only 5 star hotel that really deserves to be classified as such in Cape Town. The service was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay of 14 nights. It so so close to the vibrant Victoria and Alfred shopping and entertainment complex and some days, the hotel being so good we would just stay there and take in the ambiance of the best hotel in the area.

There are many options when choosing a hotel by the waterfront at Cape Town, SA. But in the end, you need to choose a hotel within real walking distance of the waterfront and its mall. If not, you will have to Uber or walk quite a distance. After a long and hard study of the options, we chose the Manor House at the Queen Victoria Hotel. You have the charm of the QVH, with all the modern amenities of the Manor House. And the Manor House only has four rooms. If you take the two rooms at the top, you have a private dining room and area. Breakfast in the garden is truly special. Watching the birds, the pier and Table Mountain while having an espresso is clearly a nice way to start the day. If you want to misbehave, have the French toast - very decadent! The Queen Victoria has THE location. You walk down the steps, cross the street and stroll right into the restaurants and mall. And if you rent a car there is plenty of parking on premises.

Dear Alan C Thank you very much for taking the time to review The Manor House at Queen Victoria Hotel. I am delighted to hear that your party enjoyed the charm and privacy of the Manor House. The garden is truly a hidden gem in the Waterfront, with a fantastic view, that is difficult to beat. We are in a truly unique location by being in the heart of the Waterfront but just far enough away that the noise from the hustle and bustle of the Waterfront doesn't intrude on your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future, and having the French Toast waiting for you under the palm tree in the garden! Best regards, Tyler Windell

This is the best location in Cape Town - And so is the gym, service, pool and breakfast. After super sleep you just walk down to the sizzling Waterfront with sea lions and sushi restaurants. Super safe hotel and staff

The location was ideal close to the Waterfront the social and restaurant centre for Cape Town. The room was outstanding, spacious and very comfortable with all the amenities expected from a hotel of this grade. The breakfast was a delight with a wide range of cooked options prepared while you wait in addition to the buffet. The staff were most attentive with a ready smile, interest in your stay and above all nothing was too much trouble. The whole experience Is highly recommended.
