We stayed at the V&A hotel at the end of October. It's location on the waterfront is perfect. There must be 80 restaurants in that area. It is also within walking distance of the Hop On Hop Off bus that tours the city. The staff is very attentive, and Leisl, the concierge was very helpful in setting up our reservations. The breakfast, that is included, was far better than any breakfast I've had at other hotels. The dinner we had at the OYO restaurant was delicious and we ate it outside on the harbor, where there were seals entertaining the customers. I would highly recommend the V&A hotel to anyone visiting the area.

As a mother travelling with three young daughters, I chose this hotel due to the location and security. We stayed for 4 days and just loved it. The location is excellent both for doing day trips with our rent a car and for walking around the waterfront. I found the staff to be very accommodating, especially so on our last morning! We had an early flight to catch so the receptionist suggested they pack breakfasts for us to eat on the way! It was fantastic to be handed these gifts at 4 AM in the lobby!

The room was very large and clean. Just perfect.

The breakfast buffet was excellent and included everything imaginable!

There is no need for us to look for another hotel in Cape Town during our next visit, we will definitely stay here again!

This hotel offer a lot, situated in the harbor you have the choice of everything nearby, bars, resto, shopping to every budget all within walking distance and always safe, you can also book all kind of excursion including Roben Island on premises. Try to stay in the loft room (like home) bar service is OK, breakfast, lunch and diner food and service are excellent.

This was a former rope storage warehouse and had been beautifully restored. A charming centrally located hotel, with direct access to all the waterfront ameneties. In no way does this feel like being in a shopping mall-there are African bands playing outside,and a wonderful buffet breakfast including oysters and champagne can be enjoyed whilst facing the harbour or Table Mountain.. Staff are very helpful,and with such a central location taxis are not required.The swimming pool and fitness suite are directly across the road at the sister hotel, a charming boutique hotel with a lovely garden where Vand A guiests are very welcome.Security at the hotel is ever present, discreet and reassuring. Visit the food and craft market next to the Hotel. The huge fresh fish food platters are £15 for two and provide a spectacular photograph!!We will stay here again when we return to Capetown.

Room Tip: Rooms either face the piazza where there is plenty of activity but there is no problem with noise. T...
