The V&A Cape Town's iconic 5 star Waterfront hotel

Tourists love Cape Town and the V&A Waterfront is usually their first stop after landing at the Cape Town International Airport, then transferring to Cape Town’s iconic V&A, Victoria and Alfred, 5-star Waterfront hotel. It’s a luxury destination set in the heart of Cape Town’s Waterfront, it’s high-class urban chic at its best and perfectly positioned for your adventure in the Mother City.

Your luxury suite in the V&A Victoria & Alfred Hotel is only footsteps away from the famous marina where boats go to and from Robben Island. The place where the renowned South African President, Nelson Mandela, was incarcerated for so many years and a museum well-worth the boat ride. Special touches make this Cape Town Hotel popular amongst travellers to South Africa who love the hand-written welcome notes and the array of five-star facilities.

Situated five minutes’ drive from Cape Town’s city bowl on the Pier head, the Victoria & Alfred Hotel is a central venue for business people and leisure travellers. Explore both the Waterfront and the many sites around the city, including Table Mountain, Green Point, the Company Gardens, and the National Iziko Museum.

The V&A reflects a timeless sense of history merged with modern opulence to create something that all guests aspire to – a comfy place to relax and be entertained in the heart of pretty Cape Town. The hotel dates back to 1904 and was originally the North Quay Warehouse. It takes its name from the Queen and her son who had a hand in the development of the Breakwater Basin which is now the famous tourist attraction we all love, the V&A Waterfront.

The stunning views of Table Mountain take up your window frame and enthral all visitors to this Mother City – take the 11-minute ride to the cable car and enjoy sightseeing on the top of this iconic mountain, then hike back down. What a wonderful part of the Western Cape!

Perfection in accommodation at this hotel is featured in 94 ultra-luxurious suites with an antique décor and sense of past Victorian decadence – choose three different room types in the Piazza Facing Superior Rooms, the Superior Loft Rooms, as well as the Mountain Facing Superior Rooms. 

All chic suites provide air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms, mini bars, tea and coffee facilities, satellite TV and more. The hotel is so close to the water you can see its reflection, changing hourly with the movement of the sun overhead. Stroll around the shops and restaurants at sunset.

Choose fresh seafood at the restaurant at the five-star Queen Victoria, located just across the road from the V&A Hotel. Pop into the cocktail bar or sip a good Cape wine on the pool terrace. Enjoy everything about the Victora & Albert, Cape Town’s iconic 5-star Waterfront hotel, a luxury destination set in the heart of the Mother City with instant access to shops, restaurants, Table Mountain, Robben Island and the Sea point prom. 



The best part of your Cape Town tour is the V&A Hotel at the central tourist attraction in the harbour of the Mother City – the V&A Waterfront. Enjoy the Victoria and Albert hotel garden and swimming pool outside where the sun beckons. Sip a cocktail at the sun terrace bar or explore the walk-in cellar.

Victoria & Albert Hotel accommodation is worthy of kings and queens, literally! Choose from 94 large airy rooms, elegant and romantic, harking back to that Victorian era, with air-conditioning, en-suite baths and showers, king-size beds, tea and coffee stations with herbal teas and biscuits, minibars and wireless internet. Superior luxury double rooms for couples ensure everything is there, nothing is needed – looking over the wonderful Alfred Basin and Piazza.

Mountain and Piazza facing rooms on the first and second floors have flat-screen TVs and on the third floor, find superior loft bedrooms boasting refined sophistication and chic decor – for all cosmopolitan visitors!

Cape Town’s Victoria & Albert Hotel is friendly – guests find themselves looking out of windows at every opportunity to see new perspectives on wonderful views – the Mother City has it all!

After a long day of business or leisure head for OYO Restaurant & Cocktail Bar where breakfasts and other fine food is served inside or alfresco on the quayside veranda while live music plays. 

On a more serious note, Dash restaurant suits those who want to eat fine food in fine surroundings. Try South African and international dishes created with flair. Sotano is a more relaxed affair, serving Mediterranean foods where diners can look out at Mouille Point Lighthouse and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

What do past clients say about this destination?


Very happy with our stay at the V&A Hotel Cape Town. The room was so roomy… and so stylish. Just what we needed after a few hiccups in Zimbabwe. The hotel is in a fab marina area that seems so buzzy with people, things to do, we loved it all. Our breakfast was part of our rate and we could never finish the divine choices we ordered, so quality. It made Cape Town seem even better.
