We had a very smooth and nice stay at this hotel. It was still going through it's renovations but that was not problem at all. Perfect location to other restaurants and the city tour bus that we utilized. Breakfast was lovely. We never knew what or who our car pickups looked like each day so the parking attendants were gracious... More

Stayed at the V&A in February while travelling to watch some cricket. So impressed that I decided to re-visit in September with my wife to celebrate our anniversary. As ever service etc was first class, however, when booking was not advised of renovations at the hotel. Unfortunately this took some shine off our stay as I certainly missed the dining... More

We are terribly sorry you were not aware of the upgrade program as it was communicated across all our digital booking channels, website and email confirmations. That being said, we are all set to re open on the 1st October so it would be fantastic if you would visit again to see... More

Seldom experienced this level of customer service. Everyone from the receptionist to the breakfast service to the fabulous bartenders made my stay enjoyable. The breakfast is amazing with champaign and oysters served each morning along with an incredible buffet.

The V & A Hotel has a stunning view of the harbor. The hotel is excellent and better than most small restaurants/hotels surrounding it. The food is outstanding and it is highly recommended for a nice waterfront lunch.

The hotel is beautiful located by the Waterfront. Walking distance to the mall, restaurants and the best view of the table mountain from our window. The buffet breakfast was excellent and the dinner at the same restaurant was equally nice. Highly recommended.

This hotel is in an old building which has been thoroughly remodeled with a superb location on the V and A wharf right by the food court and shopping. The service was very professional and the staff very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel for those staying the Capetown area that would like to be near the wharf

Great modern hotel with friendly staff, located in the center of the Victoria and Albert water front complex. Easy walking all local attractions. Hop on hop off bus 100 yards away and restaurants for all tastes. Only two small negatives, neither of which reduce my 5 star rating, are - the lighting the rooms could be better and during our...

We stayed at the V&A for 5 nights in August. We had booked a transfer from the airport which saved any hassle. The location on the Waterfront was perfect - our room looked out on to the Cape ferris wheel, 2 minute walk to the shopping centre with all different restaurants, a stunning view of Table Mountain from the other...

Our party recently stayed at this hotel for four nights. As other reviewers have commented, it certainly is well located being in the heart of the action with plenty of restaurants and shopping on your doorstep. We did not have dinner in the hotel as the adjacent eating places were generally good and very reasonably priced. The room itself was... More
