Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2017

This hotel is a definate wow!. From the rooms to the staff to the dining experience. Beautifully appointed rooms, the staff were exceptional. The menu is extensive and dining in detail. Would recommend this hotel for the money, beyond our expectations.

Room Tip: Any room is exceptional. Close to the V & A waterfront. ( across the road ).

We stayed here 12 months ago and decided to stay here again as it was so nice.
Has soon as our taxi pulled up the doorman (Wonga) remembered us and welcomed us back such a lovely young man so friendly and happy. In fact all the staff we came across were very good.
Super location right near the waterfront but quiet and peaceful.
The restaurant here is excellent the food was superb.
Thank you for a lovely stay we will stay here again when we come to Cape Town.

I was pleased when I arrived at the hotel although finding it was quite a challenge.
The foyer is a high standard as was our room although we did choose a premier one.
We had a good view of Table Mountain but had to ignore the warehouse below it.
The staff were always polite and helpful so overall it was an excellent choice. There was just one criticism namely the swimming pool. It actually serves the adjacent hotel Dock House and is more of a plunge pool than a swimming pool. I never used it but was dying for a decent swim. The position is really good being just a short walk to the V and A.

Room Tip: Upgrade to premier

My husband and I stayed at the Queen Victoria for 5 nights. It has a superb location just above the Waterfront, a three minute walk away. The hotel is very modern and small with some interesting quirky decor in both the public rooms and bedrooms. The staff were extremely helpful and personable. There is a smallish dining area where breakfast was served, adjoining the small but swish bar area. Both the dining room and bar had windows and doors giving access to the terrace which ran the complete length of the building and overlooked the Waterfront and Table Mountain. Our room was large, as was the en-suite bathroom, both trendy in decor, if a little tired. Unfortunately, the housekeeping left a lot to be desired. This is not a cheap hotel. Turn-down service was haphazard and on two occasions we were actually in bed when they knocked to come and sort things out! For the first three nights our bins were not emptied and on one occasion I had to go and find someone to supply face cloths and drinking water. The only time that everything actually came together was the night before we left! That said, we would stay there again as the location is just perfect and the rooms are spacious. We feel that the problems we encountered were mainly due to the housekeeping staff probably being new and not properly trained; we were aware that the lovely young staff in the dining room were being put through their paces by the delightful and jolly lady in charge who was an angel! However, as I said, it was not an inexpensive stay and having come from the well run Oyster Box in Durban, we were a tad disappointed.

Met up with three other couples and had a grand time here. Staff was exceptional, very well trained, and much fun. We ate several delightful dinners with quality wine and superb food. Our room was bright, clean, and comfortable...but not exceptional. Location is great and waterfront is an easy walk. A great introduction to the hospitality of South Africa. Highly recommend.
