    Very comfortable and well positioned to explore the Waterfront., Cape Town and to just relax.

    Staff are insensitive to guests as they seem to rely on once off toutist business as apposed to local recurring business

    We booked a loft room but it was up-graded to a superior luxury double room facing Table Mountain. The room was spacious and always very clean. We did enjoy looking at the beautiful mountain from our room all the time. The location was perfect. The area seems to be the safest one in the town and is very convenient for eating out and shopping.

    We had dinner at the hotel restaurant called OYO. Nice location and very nice food such as local oysters and ostrich steak with eide range of wines. Only dissapointment was the service was very slow although there were only 3 guests. We gave up having desert as more than 2 hours passed for 2 course. If you can stay for 3 hours for 3 course, it would be very nice restaurant... This is the only disappointment at this hotel and everything was so nice.

    We loved the personalised service, unlike larger Hotels where you are just another guest.

    Excellent location and very large bathroom with seperate toilet, shower and bath. Shower was very large with an excellent shower head. Bed was confortable and room service was excellent.

    Decor was more modern that I expected but my husband liked it.

    My wife and had an extremely enjoyable 9 night stay at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel recently. The location of the hotel was superb. We had a very nice room overlooking the piazza and enjoyed a lovely breakfast each day with great views over the waterfront. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be of assistance. We would definitely make this hotel our choice when next visiting Cape Town.

    Location, location location. The deal via Booked.net was excellent. Substantially less than offered by the hotels own web site. The breakfast is excellent and the stay in general is great value for moeny.

    TV remote control operation difficult & a poor choicve of TV stations.

    Everything was excellent. The breakfast was amongst the best I have ever experienced. The room was outstanding in design, size and comfort. The hotel (although not every room) has a spectacular view of the waterfront and Table Mountain. The service was never less than attentive and skilled.

    The hotel occupies a crowded site on the waterfront and the swimming pool is across the road in a sister hotel, so, in season, I assume everything is busy.
