We had an excellent stay in a loft room which was spacious with a modern bathroom. The staff were amazingly friendly and seemed to really enjoy their job. We did not have breakfast included in the room rate but the a la cartel selection included a good selection of freshly cooked options including toast and drinks for a very reasonable...

Let me start with: The Victoria & Alfred really is where you want to be. It is right in the middle of the Waterfront District. The views are just amazing. And the staff was great. We stayed in May of 2014, so this review is a bit late. So why four stars for a five star hotel? We had just...

Could not ask for something nicer. Staff and accommodation were top notch. The location is so handy to the waterfront. All restaurants close by are outstanding. Large array of shopping and activities as well.

Overall, our experience was nice. They have a great coffee bar. The staff was good. The room was facing the plaza and is a bit noisy and touristy. If you want to be in the middle of the V&A waterfront, this is a great place. We tend to search for places that offer a bit more of the local vibe......

My wife and I stayed at the V&A Hotel for three nights. The hotel location is perfect for views over the harbor to Table Mountain and is an easy walk to the various ‘Hop On Hop Off’ buses. We found the location close to many restaurants and bars and with a plethora of tourist police, safe to walk around day...

My husband and I stayed at the Victoria and Alfred at the end of January this year. It is in a fantastic position on the Waterfront, with lovely views of Table Mountain. The Waterfront itself is a great place to shop and eat. It is relaxing and also a good place to use as a base because it is near...

You are paying for the location at the Waterfront if that is what you want, as well as a fantastic view of Tablemountain but not for the quality of the room. You are not advised upon booking that 3rd floor rooms in the loft mean velux windows. Makes the whole experience very disappointing.

This is how a friendly hotel should be, other places I've been to could take a lesson in staff training at the V&A. The rooms are lively, I was blessed with a view of the Harbour and Table Mountain, it was surreal. The bedding and bath were high quality, and the mini bar is good value. Room service was a...
