Traveller Reviews

  • 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!

    Bob & Loretta Brenneman, April 2014
  • Thank you for a lovely trip. Cape Town was great, and Queen Victoria hotel was fantastic - the weather was good. Rooms were fantastic and the staff was very helpful and gracious.

    Marina Barros, September 2012
  • 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.
