• A fabulous location right by Cape Town’s buzzy V&A waterfront
  • Stylish guestrooms with harbour views
  • A designer spa on site

With the V&A close at hand, this boutique hotel is perfectly placed for exploring all of Cape Town, with Robben Island visits, Table Mountain walks, day safaris, shark cage dives and wine estate tours all on the doorstep. But there’s much to enjoy at the hotel too, not least a lavish designer spa.

In more detail

The 35 rooms at the Queen Victoria hotel are lined with muted tasteful shades of grey and taupe, marble clad walls and parquet flooring, all adding to a luxurious ambience. Many have fabulous views of the waterfront or of Table Mountain, and the presidential suite features a wrap-around veranda with a double chaise longue from which to enjoy views of both.

Hotel guests have use of a small pool sweetly set in the perfectly manicured gardens of the nearby Dock House boutique hotel, and the vibrant shops and galleries of the waterfront are seconds away.

Dining is a treat, dished up at Dash, named after Queen Victoria’s favourite dog. Delicacies include double baked gorgonzola soufflé with biltong shavings, hot chocolate fondant with orange ice-cream and bitter sugar brittle and a cheese board featuring a Queen Victoria cheddar. Service throughout the hotel is warm and thoughtful.
