Victoria and Alfred Hotel
Built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse and converted into a luxury hotel in 1990, the V&A Hotel is named in honour of the Queen of England and her son who visited the Cape in 1870 when Prince Alfred officially opened the Breakwater Basin – today’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
It’s the precise details that gives the Victoria & Alfred Hotel its elegance, intimacy, romance and reputation….the wooden staircase, the telescope, flowers and the service….friendly and efficient yet never intrusive.
There are 94 spacious, air-conditioned, en suite rooms spread over 3 floors, with Mountain and Piazza facing Rooms on the first and second levels, while the top level is home to 26 sophisticated superior loft bedrooms. The superior luxury double rooms boast separate bath, shower and toilet, king-sized beds, and are creatively styled and well-appointed. All have coffee and tea on tap, with private bar, electronic safe, pay-for-view television, wireless internet plus high speed internet access and trouser press.
Dining options include the Dash Restaurant, named after Queen Victoria's favourite pet; Sotano, a casual eatery; and OYO restaurant and cocktail bar, with al fresco terrace.
A transfer service to and from Cape Town International Airport and established fares to all areas in and around Cape Town is offered in luxury sedans.
