This renovated warehouse is one of the best designed and decorated hotels I have stayed in. Even the corridors are architecturally interesting and beautiful. The restaurant features outdoor dining with a great view of Table Mountain. The property is next to a shopping mall with fine stores; several good restaurants are close by. The hotel restaurant is quite good; breakfast was included in our room rate and it was wonderful.
Our guestroom was a standard double that faced the front of the hotel. It was spacious and well designed with ample closet space and drawers and a minibar, The view was lovely but we realized later we should have asked for a room with a view of Table Mountain for two reasons: the view and peace and quiet. Several local musical groups perform all day every day at the V&A waterfront. They stationed themselves under the tree that was directly below our room. The first full afternoon of our visit they played for more than four hours without a break. The noise was so loud I couldn't take a rest or even listen to the TV. After I complained to the front desk they called the harbor management and the band magically disappeared. Although we were subjected to music every day, it lasted only an hour at a time. If you don't want to be loudly serenaded, ask for a room with a mountain view.
I highly recommend the V&A Hotel and it's fun location.
