The Victoria & Alfred Hotel is set on the Pier head in Cape Town’s famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse and converted in 1990 to a luxury hotel, the Hotel is named in honour of Queen Victoria, and her son, Prince Alfred (the latter visited the Cape in 1861) and officially opened the Breakwater basin, today’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
There are only 94 rooms, all of which are spacious, air-conditioned, and en-suite. The superior luxury double rooms have separate bath, shower and toilet, king-sized beds and are creatively styled. All have coffee and tea on tap, with private bar, electronic safe, pay-for-view television, wireless internet plus high speed internet access, and each room has a view over the Alfred Basin or Piazza.
On both the first and second floor, there are Mountain and Piazza facing Junior Suites. All Piazza Junior Suites offer a dining area, whilst The Mountain Junior Suites have a dedicated 4-seater lounge area. The third floor is home the 26 superior loft bedrooms – the ideal space for visitors seeking a cosmopolitan experience.
