Framed by the Ocean and Table Mountain, the elegance and luxury of the Victoria & Alfred Hotel is rivalled only by its relaxed atmosphere and warm personal service. The name of this world-class hotel was selected to honour Britain's Queen Victoria and her son, Prince Alfred, who opened the Breakwater Basin in 1870. The Breakwater Basin is today the famous, upmarket Victoria & Alfred Waterfront mall. The original North Quay Warehouse, dating back to the early 1900's, was transformed into this luxury hotel in 1990.
The Victoria & Alfred Hotel is situated right in the middle of one of the country’s top destinations, Cape Town’s beautifully restored Waterfront. Guests can walk in the utmost safety to some of the finest retail outlets in the country, from designer stores to restaurants, craft markets, cinemas and entertainment in the amphitheatre. The OYO Restaurant & Cocktail Bar is a delightful experience, both aesthetically and in terms of its cuisine. Fresh seafood is the speciality at OYO where every table boasts views over the charming harbour bay and magnificent Table Mountain. The Victoria & Alfred Hotel has over 90 spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms featuring both a bathtub and a shower. All rooms are air-conditioned and feature tea-/coffee stations, safety deposit boxes, interactive and satellite television, and high-speed internet connections with wireless access. These luxurious rooms look out over the bustling quayside, working harbour and iconic Table Mountain. The hotel has a wellness spa and fitness centre, as well as a lush garden where guests can dine beside the sparkling pool.
