We stayed at the V & A in May 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The rooms were very nice although we could have used a second luggage stand. Breakfast was included and served adjacent to the water; very nice. The area was close to a number of restaurants and bars. The V & A...

We spent 3 nights here and enjoyed our stay. The room overlooking Table Mountain was large - the breakfasts were delicious. It was a treat to be able to start the day eating outside with a beautiful view. Location was great and an easy walk to Robben Island ferry and restaurants. We didn't give this five stars because the carpet...

We stayed three days at this excellent hotel. Excellent for the location and excellent for the professional service rendered by Jason, who was really quite exceptional. The V&A has an excellent location right smack on the Victoria Waterfront where we felt really safe as there are security personnel all over . The restaurants and shops are all good with a...

Spent 5 days at this Hotel booked through BA. Confirmation said room with a view. I knew that the loft rooms only had velux Windows so had paid for the option. On checking in I asked if this was on the second floor(best views) and was told the loft rooms were on second floor( which is not the case) but...

Quite an expensive hotel but you get what you pay for. Could not have a more central location as all the action is on the Waterfront. The breakfast was fabulous and even fresh oysters were on the lavish buffet breakfast.

We stayed for 5 nights in March during our 3 week holiday from the UK to South Africa. We can't fault the hotel as it is very comfortable, clean and in a great location on the Waterfront. The rooms are a good size (we had a Piazza view room) with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was included in our rate...

The location is the best. You can go out at the waterfront at night. If you have a table mountain view room yo have a super view. You can walk 5 minutes to where the ferry to Robben island is leaving from. The rooms are modern and fresh with a big bathroom with tub and seperat shower and a seperat...

We flew into Cape Town from Perth and chose the hotel from the Internet while sitting in the airport. Taxi to the hotel, wonderful greeting and a beautiful room. Plenty to see and do right next door for two or three days.

V & A Hotel and Waterfront must be one of the best waterfront destinations in the world. The Hotel is an old converted coal store which has kept its old architectural charm but it has been updated to a modern level which allows for a very pleasant stay. The staff were very helpful and very attentive. The breakfast and restaurant...
