Incrediable location

Would recommend Sat 15 Mar 2014
Having breakfast on the outside on the waterfront was amazing. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. The staff was excellent. It seemed that they couldn't do enough for you. They picked up our party in their Mercedes sedan and Mercedes SUV(we had a lot of luggage) even though we arrived after 10PM local time. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Attractions

The hotel is located on the waterfront. A complete mall is located next door with excellent restaurants and outstanding shopping.

very comfortable stay

Would recommend Sat 14 Dec 2013
The V&A hotel is very conveniently located at the waterfront, rooms are comfortable (I liked the cozy feel and quiet position of the loft rooms) and clean. What made it such a lovely stay is the V&A staff though, they were, without exception, welcoming, friendly and very helpful, from the maid to the reception staff and porters, as well as restaurant personnel. Liesl from travel services deserves an extra mention - she's been very helpful and clearly enjoys her job. I enjoyed the restaurant's special crayfish deal so much that I had it twice in a row - great value and very tasty. Happy to come back to the V&A some time soon.

Hip and Perfect Location

Would recommend Wed 12 Jun 2013
We loved this beautiful hotel. It was decorated in a very classy urban way with great amenities. The hotel was freshly painted and the bed was so comfortable! The wait staff did a great job and the food was delicious. The location was perfect - we were right where the action was. We felt very safe and had a good time at the shops in and around the hotel.

Shopping hint

The shops connected to the hotel have good prices.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE! STAFF WILL STEAL YOUR STUFF AND MANAGEMENT WILL DO NOTHING

Would not recommend Wed 22 May 2013
My stay here was terrible. I would definitely not recommend that anyone stay here. I stayed here for 7 days, so I have a good understanding and feel for the hotel and the service it provides. First and most importantly, maid staff will steal your stuff, and management will do nothing about. During my stay, I had over $200 USD stolen from my wallet, which I contacted the hotel about. They were not only unhelpful and uncooperative, but I felt that I was treated very poorly by the manager, Andy Nold. He was supercilious and patronizing and did nothing to help the situation. How could I possibly endorse a hotel chain who treats its customers this way? Fortunately, at least the bad service is consistent from top-down! because like the manager, Andy Nold, the front desk also isn't very inviting, knowledgeable or willing to share information with hotel guests. If you ask them for any recommendations at all, they're happy telling you "everything is good around here." really? give me an opinion. That shows you have no clue or don't care. Second of all, the internet NEVER works. This is the 21st century, get with it. Thirdly, if you look it up, it says that it has "state of the art gym, spa and pool" this is totally misleading as it's not on-site. They're really inconveniently located at a different "sister hotel" that prohibit them from being a convenient service, you can basically call them nonexistent. There are SO many other hotels in the area, don't waste your time or money here - the Portswood and the Commodore have competing and even lower prices and you will be treated with MUCH better service and amenities and more knowledgeable staff.

Superb waterfront location

Would recommend Mon 7 Jan 2013
We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Victoria & Alfred. We loved the location and enjoyed fantastic leisurely breakfasts (one of the best breakfasts we have ever had) sitting outside overlooking the waterfront. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful and each morning our car was cleaned in the hotel car park. We stayed in a Superior Luxury Piazza facing double room. The room itself was spacious and comfortable but the decor and furnishings were very dark and in our opinion it could do with a lighter/brighter colour scheme with perhaps a picture or two on the walls. It would then be more pleasing to the eye. The bathroom was fantastic..

This hotel is nicely located at the waterfront. The room was nice, albeit a little small. The breakfast was great. Be sure to secure a room overlooking the harbour AND facing Table Mountain.
