The Victoria and Alfred Hotel Cape Town

Victoria And Alfred Hotel

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

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 your 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 Buffet

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

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.

The Rooms


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.

We are adventure seekers who love to explore the world. So one day, we decided to write about it here is our story so far

    When I visit Cape Town I’d love to stay here

    1. Its beuatiful the view over table mountain nd the harbour are unreal

  2. kagould17 – Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.
