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.

From the moment we have checked in we were met with smiles and excellent service. We came as guests and left as family. Everyone was well trained and helpful. The managers were all hands-on and well trained to please their customers.

We booked for a winter warmer special to include breakfast and a massage at a local spa. Upon arrival we were greeted by very friendly and efficient staff. We were fortunate enough to be upgraded in our room choice, and had a fantastic room overlooking the harbor and table mountain. It was stunning, impeccably clean and neat. The doorman was so welcoming, they know how to make you feel special here. The breakfast was from a menu and was excellent.. we couldn't fault anything here. If you want to be in the center of the Waterfront and be spoil t..the V & A Hotel tops the bill. Hopefully we can get back again soon.

The hotel is quiet cool and decent, close to everything in the town. close to the walking place and the shopping malls. nice food, and really the most amazing breakfast buffet ever .. the staff is helpful, but the hotel is always crowded because of its location.

The Capetown waterfront area is very expensive but right in the middle of all the action. If you want to watch seals palying in the harbour out of your bedroom window or take a 5 minute walk to a ferris wheel out the back door of the hotel, this is the place to stay. The restaurant was excellent and provides about a dozen sidewalk tables fronting the water. The room was very large and well appointed with an attached sitting area. The bed was comfortable. There is a doorman at the elevator all the time and it makes you feel very safe. Step out the front door and you are right in the middle of everything you want to see and do at the waterfront. All the best sights and bars/ restaurants are within a 5-10 minute walk. An upscale mall adjoins the hotel. Two other malls are within a 5-10 minute walk.

We started our vacation and ended our vacation at the V&A Hotel. On our 1st visit, we had a King bed with a loft. It was perfect, as we were only there for 1 night. We enjoyed walking along the waterfront, after a 17 hour plane ride. The breakfast was plenty full and the service was superb. Such a great place, we choose to stay again at the end of our vacation. We needed to store our golf clubs while we were traveling and Wesley assisted us and when we returned at the end of our trip, he upgraded us to a King Suite and it was again a wonderful experience. I love plush bedding and extra pillows and V & A didn't disappoint. The rooms were modern with great amenities. We were there at a difficult time, as the Coronavirus was in full swing (March 22 & 23), but the staff was always pleasant, helpful and the service remained superb. If we are ever in Cape Town again, we will be back. Many thanks to all for your hospitality.
