Room was very comfortable, breakfast (included) was excellent. Staff very helpful and location perfect for wandering the waterfront, taking the hop on hop off bus tours. Restaurant was fine for dinner, though there are many other choices on the waterfront

Nice hotel but getting old Room was not so clean as you can expect for this kind of hotel Asked for a non smoking and got a smoking one; smelly Insulation is poor; so you feel cold air constantly Noise proofing is poor too. You'd hear any water being flushed or flowed from neighbor rooms Other than that hotel in...

Stayed here 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Amazing location, a very lively area. There are many things to do around and a lot of restaurants too. The view of the waterfront from my room was great. You'll enjoy amazing views during breakfast too. The breakfast service was a slow on couple of occasions because they were understaffed, but the...

My wife and I stayed at the Victoria and Alfred for 5 nights while waiting to board a Princess cruise. The location was outstanding, with plenty to do locally. We did not feel unsafe at any time, even when strolling the area at night (lots of activity). Our room was facing the water with a clear, unobstructed view of Table...

The hotel is good value given it's position. All the staff were very friendly and professional. We had a loft room, which was rather cramped but did the job. The bathroom was in need of maintenance. Convenient for a few days stay.
