Framed by the ocean and Table Mountain, the elegance and luxury of the Victoria & Alfred Hotel in Cape Town is rivalled only by its relaxed atmosphere and warm personal service.
Built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse and converted in 1990 to a boutique style luxury hotel, it is named in honour of the Queen of England and her son, who visited the Breakwater Basin, today's renowned Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
The Victoria & Alfred Hotel boasts 94 large rooms, superbly furnished, with air-conditioning. Each room has a full-size bath and separate shower, a separate toilet, fully stocked refreshment centre, television, hairdryer, trouser presses, wireless internet connectivity and DVD players. The rooms enjoy unrivalled views of Table Mountain and the city, or the vibrant working harbour and Table Bay.
Robben Island ferry trips depart at the Waterfront, taking only 40 minutes to reach the island. Departing with this ferry is an exquisite experience in itself; you leave the tranquil waters of the bay watching a video on the struggle in the old South Africa. At Robben Island you are shown the prison itself, visit all the various blocks from A to G; the B block is the famous block where Mr. Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.
The Victoria & Alfred Hotel in Cape Town is internationally renowned for the highest standards of service. The warm personality of this hotel, the attention to detail and the friendly atmosphere created by the staff, make your stay even better.
