Our room had a magnificent view of Table Mtn, the waterfront and Victoria Basin. I found the room a little dark and the bathroom a bit tired looking but overall it was spacious and most of all, the hotel was in a great location.
The buffet breakfast, included in our room rate, was the best we encountered in South Africa: fresh oysters, cold cuts, cheeses, cereals, fresh fruits, sparkling wine as well as a juices and hot made to order food - a great way to start the day.
Lots of activity in this area of the waterfront from early morning to late at night. Restaurants galore, live street entertainment, a pub, aquarium, craft centre and a shopping centre within easy walking distance. We visited the nearby sister hotel, The Victoria, to use the pool. We weren't impressed with this hotel itself but found the grounds charming.
We had heard that the waterfront area might not be a safe locale and were advised to stay further up the mountain in a boutique hotel - total mis information. Luckily we didn't take that advice and had a fabulous time at the V&A.
Although the hotel was very busy the staff were most friendly and helpful.
