“Perfect for Us”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

This hotel was perfect for us. It's close to the Waterfront (a two minute walk), but far enough away that you don't get the noise. The rooms were luxurious--nice spacious bathrooms, a chandelier over the bed, and a wrap-around balcony with views of Table Mountain. There is a nice lounge area with a fireplace that we enjoyed at the end of the evening, and there's a complimentary made-to-order breakfast in the morning. I thought the service was great. The manager, Bobby Pringle, took care of every request I had and was very friendly. Also, one evening we wanted wine in the lounge, but it appeared to be closed. Instead of just saying, "Oh, it's closed"--which MANY hotels do--the front desk employee opened it for us, turned on the fireplace, and gave us excellent service. If we were to return to Cape Town, I would want to stay here again.

This is a newly refurbished hotel in a building stretching back to Victorian times. It is located on a ridge overlooking the waterfront district and great views of table mountain. My cabbie took me to the Victoria & Alfred Hotel first so make sure you make the name clear.
The rooms are very well apointed with a very comfortable bed and a huge bathroom.
It is within easy walking of the waterfront district which is a busy tourist area. I had a DSV in the dry dock to survey so was on my own, but it would be highly recommended as a location for couples.
There are loads of eating places in walking distance along with craft shops; a supermarket, and speciality shops.

Room Tip: Ask for the mountain view and then get up early and watch the sun slowly light up table mountain and...

We stayed in the Queen Vic from the 14-17 April 2012 at the start of our honeymoon. The hotel exceeded our expectations in every way, and when we opened the door to our 'room', we were amazed beyond words by the luxury of it all. The bathroom was huge, with his and hers basins, a large walk in shower and separate loo. The bedroom was massive, with a seating area, super king bed and chandelier!! We stayed in room 1213 and had a great view of Table Mountain (when it wasn't raining). The breakfasts were yummy! Buffet starter and then full hot breakfast to order. We were also given the option to have breakfast in the Dockhouse which we did on our last morning, and enjoyed a plated service at the pool. The location was perfect for our days out at the Waterfront. We were also given a complementary bottle of Champagne. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel.

Room Tip: 1213 is a corner suite with views of table mountain (and the car park), but it was huge, and sunny.

Stayed one night in this hotel and loved it. Everything from the stunning decor to the really nice breakfast buffet pleased us. We had a nice room with excellent views in two directions, comfortable beds, slippers, gowns and plenty of toiletries. The service all round was good and we will most definitely stay here again.

This was a lovely hotel with contemporary decorations, and a great location right near the harbor. It gets confused with a sister hotel, so try to be clear with the Cab drivers. The breakfast was excellent, both buffet and ordering and the view from it was also lovely of table top mountain.

This is not a full service hotel, so don't try to get them to do a 'picnic' lunch or anything like that, but they are very gracious and helpful about getting you into town safely and where the ATMs are etc. They do have access to a gym//spa in a sister hotel, but we didn't use it.

Superb hotel, a very warm welcoming and very trendy lobby. I liked it very much. Unfortunately, I was only spending two nights at the Queen Victoria. Breakfast was outstanding, the service was very professional and the room was very clean. Just a very small issue, their WiFi does not work everywhere in the hotel (well, that was what I experienced). For sure, I would stay again while visiting CapeTown.

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
