Cape Town & The Western Cape
Victoria & Alfred Hotel

Arrive at the V&A Hotel and you feel immersed in colonial Cape Town, and yet bedrooms are as contemporary as they are elegant.

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 – aka the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Guest rooms offer spectacular views of the working harbour, Table Mountain or the lively Piazza.

Facilities & Activities

Guests have access to the pool located at the sister hotel, Dock House Boutique Hotel, located just across the road. The pool is set in a beautifully manicured garden with views across the V&A Basin.

The Sanctuary Spa offers 3 treatment rooms, gym and outdoor pool. The hotel travel desk will help you choose from a plethora of nearby attractions, from stunning beaches, golf courses, hop-on-hop-off Bus Tours, Cape Point, Boulder’s Bay for penguins and not forgetting the local wine estates.
