Situated within a precinct of heritage buildings along the main road leading to Cape Town's V&A Waterfront, the Queen Victoria Hotel is a luxurious haven and the perfect place from which to experience the Mother City in style. Ideal for those who enjoy a sophisticated holiday that is a little removed from the crowds, this boutique hotel sits in a quiet road, but still within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront's attractions.

Ideally located, the Queen Victoria is also only a short drive from Table Mountain, the city centre, and the many excellent beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. Walk to the Sanctuary Spa right next door while enjoying a host of fine-dining restaurant, art galleries and boutiques virtually on your doorstep.

Dash is the Queen Victoria's in-house restaurant and bar, and gets its name from the late queen's of England's favourite pet spaniel. You can look forward to sophisticated fine dining and a menu that is structured around classic French cuisine. The chefs make wonderful use of seasonal ingredients and all items are sourced locally - except for the high-grade caviar. Most of the furniture found in the restaurant were sourced from local designers and you can decide to sit either inside or out on the veranda, either way enjoying an intimate, delicious meal.

Traveller Reviews

  • The Queen Victoria Hotel was perfect. Great location and very friendly and helpful staff. Definitely can recommend. We met some friends and did the tour of Table Mountain, another day did a private penisula tour and just enjoyed all that the V&A waterfront had to offer. Perfect weather too!

    David Hackney, October 2016
  • The Queen Victoria couldn't have been nicer. The location, of course, is perfect, and the hotel is quite luxurious.

    Helen Katz, November 2015
  • The Queen Victoria Hotel was beautiful. The location at the V & A Waterfront and the proximity to shopping and restaurants made it especially attractive. The room was elegant, spacious and had all the amenities that one could hope for. We had a fabulous view of Table Mountain! The staff was most accommodating and dining was excellent. Our touring in Cape Town was awesome!

  • The hotel in Cape Town was very nice as well; location right at the waterfront was perfect. The staff at the hotel was very professional and helped pick restaurants and arranged taxis etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
