Traveller Reviews

  • Absolutely fantastic. The staff at the V&A Hotel couldn’t do enough for our family and got to know us on a personal level. The staff were top class all round! We could not have chosen better for our stay.

    Nick Blackford, May 2015
  • The hotel was awesome and the concierges were very, very helpful and attentive. Great location. We just made up our own days in Cape Town and had no problem filling them with Cape of Good Hope, Penguins, walking tour, Table Mountain, Long Street at night, etc. Breakfast was awesome at the hotel, just like everywhere else.

    John Cote, September 2014
  • Victoria and Alfred Hotel was awesome & beyond our expectations. We loved being on the waterfront in Cape Town because everything we wanted to do in Capetown was right at our fingertips. We dined at many of the restaurants and tried all the unique dishes and also enjoyed the breakfasts at the hotel. The shopping was great with a lot of variety. I also go the perfect tanzanite with diamonds which was mined right from Africa. I’ll cherish that souvenir forever.

  • Everything about Cape Town went very well. The V&A Hotel was wonderful (good location, service, etc)

    Cindy Niekamp, January 2014
  • I have been meaning to drop you a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip to your beautiful country. Everything went perfect. All connections went smoothly and our transfers that met us to get to our next destination were all on time and very nice people. The V & A in Cape Town was the perfect location. I would highly recommend all the places we visited and have recommended you to our friends. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime!

  • Lucy worked with me to put together a great adventure. She took care of everything: hotel, tour guides, airport transfers. She suggested the Victoria and Alfred hotel on the V&A waterfront which was a great place to stay, near shopping, restaurants and Robben Island tours. This made everything easy for us. The V&A hotel provided beautiful rooms, a nice restaurant and bar, and serve a magnificent breakfast in the morning. The hotel staff quickly responded to any requests we had.

    Robert Price, October 2013
  • Personally I enjoyed all the resorts. Cape Town my family enjoyed thoroughly & hotel was great location.

    Pilar Streegan, September 2013
  • Cape Town was wonderful & staying at the V&A Hotel at the Waterfront was perfect.

    Heather Cayman, June 2013
  • Victoria and Alfred Hotel (V&A). What a hotel! What a deal we got staying there two free nights! The location is PERFECT. You can walk anywhere in the wharf area. The restaurants, mall, shops, whatever – right there. We looked out at the huge ferris wheel and Table Mountain! The breakfast was included. We thought that might be just rolls, bagels, coffee, etc. It was a buffet piled almost to the ceiling. It represented foods for every possible culture/nationality you could think of. That would have been more than enough, but you also got to order a full breakfast from the menu – that was included too!! The inclusive breakfast also let you eat at the Queen Victoria across the street. We tried that one morning – but nothing holds a candle to the breakfast at V&A. We had our last dinner at the Oyo Restaurant at V&A (where breakfasts were). Fabulous. From Ukutula to Cape Town, we did some really good eating! The hotel staff could not do enough for us. Very friendly. Very accommodating. One concierge gal even fixed my Blackberry when it wouldn’t work! Best mattress I’ve ever slept on while traveling too! Had to ask what kind. Sealy Posturpedic. I’m sure it’s a hotel grade. But it was wonderful.

  • The Victoria and Alfred was a great choice. I do not think a better location in Cape Town exists. It was convenient to walk to the mall, restaurants, Robben Island departure and the pier area.

"Great value property in the heart of the V&A Waterfront. The Piazza and Mountain facing rooms are really spacious and I loved the intimate Loft rooms with the electric windows in the A-frame of the roof."
