History and modern luxury merge to create ageless beauty at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, which was built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse. This iconic establishment was named after Queen Victoria and her son, Prince Alfred who played an intrinsic role in the establishment of the Breakwater Basin, now the V&A Waterfront. The hotel is located in the very heart of this internationally acclaimed destination and is a sophisticated retreat amid the buzz. It offers some of the most enviable views of Cape Town Harbour, Table Mountain and the slick city that stretches out at the foot of this Natural Wonder. Timeless elegance and personalised luxury are found at the award-winning Victoria & Alfred Hotel.

The hotel is well located and meets the requirements one would expect from a hotel in this price range: Friendly staff, clean rooms, fast internet, etc. However, the "wow effect" was missing. The rooms are rather small, there is rather little storage space (suitcases), small tilting windows (I had a room on the third floor) and the minibar was poorly stocked and without water. All in all I was satisfied, but next time I will try something else.

Great location, most comfortable rooms, accommodating staff. Our room overlooked the water and up to Table Mountain. The decor was contemporary and most comfortable. All staff were very helpful and friendly. Excellent breakfast and we enjoyed two dinners in the restaurant. Well equipped gym and spa. With Uber, easy access to downtown attractions.

My wife and myself stayed here for a total of 8 nights in-between a 2 day safari. The staff could not be better. The food was excellent. We ate here on a couple of occasions. The breakfast is plentiful. A hot or cold selection are available. The rooms are clean and have plenty of cupboard space. We were fortunate to stay in a loft room and also a mountain view room. No matter what room you get you will not be disappointed. What makes this hotel outstanding is the location. A wide variety of restaurants are available. The front desk also took time to advise us of excursions and also ordered our taxis. Everything taken in to account this was probably one of our favourite trips.

We had an excellent stay in Victoria & Alfred Hotel. We stayed 5 days and, no doubt, I would go back and stay in V&A again, in my next visit to Cape Town. Location and parking are a ten out of ten. Moreover, all the staff is very professional and kind. Among them, Jason, at the reception, provided us with vey helpful and appreciated tailored made options. Jason managed to make us feel like at home during all our stay in Victoria and Alfred Hotel. Rooms are extremely clean and looked after. The bed was very comfortable and the housekeeping team, in the morning and in the evening, make sure that everything is in place, including those chocolate details that make evenings a bit more special. Breakfast was great and includes lots of healthy choices. However, toasts of brown bread, are not the best. When breakfast is busy, it might take longer to get your coffee or tea and you hot breakfast options. I definitely recommend Victoria and Alfred Hotel, if you are looking for a place at Cape Town's waterfront.

Right on the Waterfront with amazing views of the harbor and Table Mountain right from your room! Centrally located to the mall, the Aquarium, the Watershed and waterfront- you will not find a better location. The staff are amazing, helpful and friendly. The breakfast with their harvest tables is wonderful. You will not be disappointed and will love your stay here. We highly recommend you stay here for the best experience.

Our family recently spent several nights and absolutely loved it. Our rooms were clean, well-appointed and quiet. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful and the staff in the restaurant went out of their way to ensure we were well taken care of. We would definitely stay there again.
