where you want to stay
The Capetown waterfront area is very expensive but right in the middle of all the action. If you want to watch seals palying in the harbour out of your bedroom window or take a 5 minute walk to a ferris wheel out the back door of the hotel, this is the place to stay. The restaurant was excellent and provides about a dozen sidewalk tables fronting the water. The room was very large and well appointed with an attached sitting area. The bed was comfortable. There is a doorman at the elevator all the time and it makes you feel very safe. Step out the front door and you are right in the middle of everything you want to see and do at the waterfront. All the best sights and bars/ restaurants are within a 5-10 minute walk. An upscale mall adjoins the hotel. Two other malls are within a 5-10 minute walk.
We started our vacation and ended our vacation at the V&A Hotel. On our 1st visit, we had a King bed with a loft. It was perfect, as we were only there for 1 night. We enjoyed walking along the waterfront, after a 17 hour plane ride. The breakfast was plenty full and the service was superb. Such a great place, we choose to stay again at the end of our vacation. We needed to store our golf clubs while we were traveling and Wesley assisted us and when we returned at the end of our trip, he upgraded us to a King Suite and it was again a wonderful experience. I love plush bedding and extra pillows and V & A didn't disappoint. The rooms were modern with great amenities. We were there at a difficult time, as the Coronavirus was in full swing (March 22 & 23), but the staff was always pleasant, helpful and the service remained superb. If we are ever in Cape Town again, we will be back. Many thanks to all for your hospitality.
Excellent location and service
Our room enjoyed splendid views of the Inner Basin and Table Mountain. From our initial welcome by Reception to check out, the service from the staff could not be faulted. Excellent breakfasts with wonderful choice.
Lovely but outrageous price
Lovely hotel right in the middle of the V&A area, but horrendously high priced for South Africa. Our room was very small (a loft room) but clean and attractively furnished. Service is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet in the restaurant. Excellent stay in all respects but would not pay the outrageous price the next time we are in Cape Town.
Great location, excellent staff
We stayed in the less expensive rooms without the mountain view, deciding to forego a view for an extra night of travel. The rooms were adequate, not huge but spacious enough for two of us, with a comfy chair, desk, tv with Neftlix, separate toilet, bath and shower, and windows that open to a view of the harbor with music wafting in day and night. The buffet breakfast was simply awesome, literally the best breakfast I have ever seen anywhere, and that includes lavish spreads in Thailand and other exotic places. We did not eat at the restaurant but appreciated live music in the lobby and the excellent level of service from the staff. Location could not be beat. The only drawback was having to walk across the street and uphill to the pool, which is located at their other property. We felt very safe and secure, the staff was excellent, and I would definitely come back. If you are starting a safari adventure here, be sure to buy anything you might want in this area because day-to-day items get harder to come by the further you get from the city and almost impossible once you get into the bush.
