We recently spent 3 nights at the V & A while visiting Cape Town and our stay was perfect. We arrived late in the evening after a long flight and our room was ready with a easy check in. The next morning we had an early activity so a breakfast was packed for us and one of the staff even...

After a long transfer from safari we were welcomed by the very helpful doormen and checked in swiftly. We had a loft room on the third floor which was spacious with huge bathroom. We only had a view of the trees in front of the hotel and the wheel behind but we weren't planning on spending much time in our...

Drove from Knysna a day before our late night flight from CT. Had visited the Waterfront area before and loved the atmosphere so wanted a hotel there. The Victoria and Alfred didn't disappoint!

If you want to stay at the V&A Waterfront, there is no better choice than the V&A. This is by far the best location on the Waterfront. I stayed only for one night, so maybe good/bad luck: Good: great breakfast buffet, including several juices, champagne, cheeses, oysters, salmon mousse etc. A big complementary fruit platter in the room. A nice...

The V&A is in a perfect position on the waterfront. We were greeted with big smiles which is always nice. The rooms were really well appointed with a big comfortable bed, 2 comfy arm chairs, plenty of storage space and a nice bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean. Whilst I couldn't fault the service from a friendly and cheerful point of...
