We had a great three nights stay in this ideally located hotel. Michaela, the receptionist we most dealt with, could not have been more helpful. She booked excursions for us and gave us great advice. Our breakfasts were fabulous as was the service. We ate out in the evenings because the V&A Water Front has so much atmosphere. We took...

The entrance by car is from Portwood Road, connection to the Waterfront and its shops and restaurants is via a short pedestrian walkway. Easy and secure parking on the premises. We stayed 3 nights in a suite room with nice views over the VA Waterfront, the city and Table mountain. The hotel, although so close to the Waterfront, is actually...

The hotel and restaurant are STUNNING with a lovely ambience and extremely attentive staff. The only thing that was incredibly disappointing were the cat-sized rats that are saw "dashing" across the balcony as I ate my dinner. Please please please do something about this as this is a top notch spot that I'd certainly like to visit again.

Proper 5 star treatment- this hotel was faultless- each member of staff we encountered was friendly, helpful and the room was beautifully decorated. Classic but modern. Breakfast was good, ample food on the buffet, plus an a la carte menu to choose from. The hotel is not cheap by any means but you defintely get what you pay for! Loved...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Queen Victoria Hotel is the newest addition to Newmark Hotel’s portfolio, which offers a myriad of ideally located upmarket hotels, other accommodation options and restaurants. What sets this unique five-star boutique hotel apart is the attention to detail given by the creative team responsible for its development, who achieved this through their unwavering passion for awe-inspiring design.From the creative brief of ‘where classic elegance meets contemporary design’, every effort has been made to ensure that the 35-room Queen Victoria Hotel is a haven of calm, luxury and understated opulence amongst the hustle and bustle of Cape Town’s popular V&A Waterfront.The interiors create an ambience of peaceful elegance, through the use of greys and taupes, marble-clad walls, crystal chandeliers, white marble and wooden parquet flooring, not to mention the triple-volume foyer with its dramatic white spiral staircase, glass lift and crystal chandeliers. 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
