Breakfast is lovely. It does not have a pool, but there is a lovely garden area at the sister hotel across the street where you can...

What can you say that has not already been said. Lovely boutique hotel that treats you like a long standing guest. Dash restaurant is as good as any around, though we did think that chef tried too hard on occasions with a bit too much on the plate. Having said that ,some of his dishes were excellent, for example the...

Partner and I, decided to go for a couples package, consisting of various treatments. Instructions were not set out clearly from the beginning and we ended up feeling dis-coordinated. Secondly the level of general etiquette was poor, employees not knocking before entering certain rooms, resulting in a breach of privacy with partner.

The accommodations were absolutely luxurious, the evening piano by the bar was classy, and the restaurant dining was delicious. The staff was so courteous and provided a lovely breakfast along with a wonderful anniversary surprise for me and my husband. Convenient to everything you would want to see on the waterfront.

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
