As a returning guest, I'm happy to report that the V&A has maintained it's standards and was as enjoyable as the first time I stayed here in 2014. The only downfall (and clearly not the fault of the hotel) is the incessant drumming from the African Marimba band in the square in the afternoons, particularly on the weekend. If one...

After reading some of the glowing reviews, we booked into this hotel for the location but feel that the service and room quality did not compensate for the site. First of all, the noise from the street bands makes it more than impossible to sleep or take a nap. Don't really remember the hour they stopped but it seemed late....

The Victoria & Alfred Hotel is in an excellent location, right in the heart of all of the action in Cape Town by the waterfront. The rooms are very nice and the hotel staff are very friendly. They have an amazing buffet breakfast that was included with our room. Service is good, but inconsistent. There were days where we had...

4 nights here everyone was very helpful and it was clean and comfortable. Food was good without being startling. If you are going to the waterfront there is a cut through past the springbok museum next door

I've stayed here many times and it is one of my favourite hotels in the world. It's in a perfect location for almost anything in the area, the rooms are beautifully done and the staff are so well trained that you always feel valued as a guest. To add to that the breakfast is unbelievably good with the widest possibly...

On arrival we were met in the hotel car park by a staff member who was more than helpful. We booked in and were taken to our room which was very impressive. We were very happy to discover our room overlooked Robben Island. After changing we left the hotel to discover Capetown, we were knocked over by the view immediately...

We stayed here for 6 nights while in Cape Town. The hotel and staff were great. Breakfast on the waterfront and the servers were fabulous. Lunch and dinner menu was a little too limited and I chose to eat outside of the hotel because of the selection. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Location is in the middle of...

The hotel is well situated by the waterfront. It's breakfast room actually faces the water with some tables outside by the water. There is a huge mall and tons of restaurants and shops around the hotel. It's all very convenient. Walking to downtown Cape Town is about 15 minutes. The breakfast is a feast. There is buffet and you can...

Overall this is a good hotel with an excellent location and very good staff. Food was amazing with breakfast a real treat. You could every meal of the day from the breakfast buffet! Bedrooms whilst a good size could really do with modernising to bring them to the same standard as the overall hotel. Table Mountain view room is a...
