The glamorous Queen Victoria Hotel is part of the same group as the neighbouring Dock House and Victoria & Alfred hotels. This means that you have a whole range of dining options right next door, as well as an abundance of restaurants, cafés and shops found in Cape Town's V&A Waterfront. Together, these three hotels share an immaculate pool area and a tip-top spa for some indulgent pampering.
The hotel’s facade is positively stunning. A white Victorian townhouse presides over the Waterfront, with a moulded spiral staircase stretching regally upwards. High-backed sofas, modern art, teardrop chandeliers and splashes of mauve emphasise the contemporary look and feel of this hotel. It's also the perfect base from which to explore all the Mother City has to offer, from beach days to hikes up Table Mountain and sampling award-winning wines.
The 32 Luxury Rooms and three Suites are modern with state-of-the-art lighting, climate control and flat-screen TVs. It also features touches of Victoriana, with bold portraits, ornate mirrors and tufted headboards. Botanical canvases adorn the pewter-coloured walls of the hallways along with bronze wildlife sculptures made by local artists. The marble and granite bathrooms are also exquisite, to say the least. If you find yourself feeling peckish at an odd hour, you can take advantage of the 24-hour room service.
