Recently spent 5 days and nights at the Queen Victoria Hotel for our wedding anniversary. Amazing experience!. Great location, great scenery. The room was very spacious, clean, well appointed. Great view of both the V&A waterfront and Table Mountain. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. Breakfast was wonderful too. Being a smaller hotel, only 32 rooms,...

Fabulous hotel in a quiet location but only a few minutes walk to the V&A Waterfront. Fantastic service from the minute we arrived (refreshing soft drink at check-in) and throughout our whole stay. Room spacious, well maintained and spotlessly clean. Great breakfasts and really glad we tried the tasting menu in Dash restaurant (excellent and good value). Highly recommend this...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in Sept. 2016. The hotel is quiet, rooms are large and tastefully decorated. The location is great on the V&A Waterfront with access to lots of restaurants.

Reviewed 6 October 2016 via mobile

The Queen Victoria is a beautiful hotel with exquisite spacious rooms and is perfectly situated in close proximity to the V & A waterfront, but far enough removed to be clear of the general hullabaloo that typifies the precinct. Understated yet elegant, it is easily on a par with any of the other top-flight Cape Town city hotels such as...

Loved the place, the staff, the food, the location. It was the perfect choice for us to stay in Cape Town. The only thing bad was not having more time to stay there. For sure when we return will be place to return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Queen Victoria Hotel is the newest addition to Newmark Hotel’s portfolio, which offers a myriad of ideally located upmarket hotels, other accommodation options and restaurants. What sets this unique five-star boutique hotel apart is the attention to detail given by the creative team responsible for its development, who achieved this through their unwavering passion for awe-inspiring design.From the creative brief of ‘where classic elegance meets contemporary design’, every effort has been made to ensure that the 35-room Queen Victoria Hotel is a haven of calm, luxury and understated opulence amongst the hustle and bustle of Cape Town’s popular V&A Waterfront.The interiors create an ambience of peaceful elegance, through the use of greys and taupes, marble-clad walls, crystal chandeliers, white marble and wooden parquet flooring, not to mention the triple-volume foyer with its dramatic white spiral staircase, glass lift and crystal chandeliers. The signature shade of deep purple has been employed to add a touch of regal eccentricity as an ode to the historic figure after whom the hotel is named.From the food and beverage offering at the hotel’s restaurant and bar, Dash, to the interior aesthetic, the Queen Victoria Hotel embodies a sense of international flair fused with local flavour. The menu at Dash is structured around classic French cuisine, with all ingredients sourced locally and seasonally, while ninety per cent of the interior pieces were sourced from local design geniuses.With a management team and staff dedicated to making every guest feel like royalty, a stay at the Queen Victoria Hotel will certainly exceed your expectation of what five-star luxury should be like. ... more   less
