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.

While the key attraction to a hotel such as this is definitely it's location (it's so central, a short walking distance from many different restaurants, bars, the mall and the waterfront), we were blown away with how amazing the hotel itself was. The Mountain Facing rooms are gorgeous, incredibly comfortable, clean and well maintained, with views of Table Mountain that are unbelievable. The hotel restaurant Ginja has some exceptional dishes. and their steak promotion (R550 for a meal for 2 including a 1kg T-bone, 3 sides, bread and a bottle of reserve wine) was PERFECTION! Breakfast is not to be missed either, full covid-friendly buffet!

We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend to celebrate a birthday. Our room had a fabulous mountain view and was clean and spacious. With the windows open this room can be noisy, it does have double glazing windows which lock out the outside noise when closed. At the time of the booking, we mentioned the birthday, thank you V&A Hotel for making it special. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the hotel restaurant Ginja has excellent food and service. We had a fabulous stay and a great experience for the memory bank. Thank you for making our stay memorable.

There were a few bumps, but overall a really great stay. The front desk staff was exceptional, we had one gentleman that really helped us out during our entire stay, I wish I could remember his name. The breakfast was delicious, and you can't beat the location. Really happy with our stay.

If you are looking for a central hotel in Cape Town then this is the place to book. Its in the center of all the action. Spacious Rooms. The views from the rooms and restaurant are stunning. The red bus pick up is around the corner from the hotel - so just hop on and travel around cape town. Breakfast was lovely. Overall a great hotel in a great location.
