Sorry this took so long to write life is busy busy busy
Last year whilst on our honeymoon we were lucky enough to travel to South Africa. We had 4 stops on our trip and with one being Cape Town.
We wanted an area full of life, entertainment and of course nice restaurants, and that’s when searching for a hotel we stumbled upon the V & A waterfront. Our choice of hotel was the Victoria and Alfred hotel.
The Victoria and Alfred is situated right on the harbour waterfront. It has full views of the amazing table mountain, which just has to be seen to believe how amazing it is.
The hotel has an amazing restaurant downstairs, serving amazing breakfast from buffet to al la carte breakfast great opportunity to get you r day started all fresh and absolutely delicious. The evening menu sounded delicious but with it being within walking distance to at least 50 restaurants located along the waterfront, from high class eateries to takeout’s available in the mall located 5 minutes away, we decided to get out and try some other options. But we did enjoy sitting at the restaurant mid afternoon, sipping on a glass of pinotage ( Oh pinotage how we miss you) and looking out over table mountain.
The service at this hotel is 5 star!!! Every person you encounter is friendly, attentive, and just generally helpful. From the front desk staff who greet you to the restaurant staff who get to know you and enjoy a good chat. Even the people who clean the room do an excellent job twice a day to make your stay wonderful.
The rooms are huge, with some of the best beds we have ever been in, so soft and comfy. There are the usual cons, mini bar, tv, lounge area and huge shower room with bath and shower. The rooms were so clean, and even on arrival we were, as being on honeymoon treated to a trail of roses and a complimentary bottle of champagne. The champagne in its self won us over.
We didn’t avail to the fitness centre or the pool, however from photos looked great and had everything you needed from these facilities.
Overall the Victoria and Alfred was a beautiful stay and highly recommended.

For now all the best
