Victoria & Alfred Hotel
This upper 4-star hotel is located in the very heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town and is a sophisticated retreat amid the buzz. It offers some of the most enviable views of Cape Town Harbour, Table Mountain and the slick city that stretches out at the foot of this Natural Wonder.
The personal handwritten note of welcome is telling… as a sign of the style that is the hallmark of a very special hotel… the style that sets the Victoria & Alfred Hotel on the Pierhead in Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront apart.
You can feel the ambience of colonial Cape Town as you step into the foyer, sense the past of shipwrecks and storms that colour every corner, then relax in the elegant contemporary bedrooms and savour the atmosphere of the world’s most famous working harbour.
On your doorstep the bustling sights and sound of the world famous Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Brimming with shopping opportunities, craft market finds and entertainment galore, the Waterfront could keep you occupied for days. Stroll through the sophisticated mall, grab a cappuccino or take a seat at any of the first rate restaurants and drink in the surrounding harbourside views.
It’s the level of detail that gives the Victoria & Alfred Hotel its elegance, intimacy, romance and reputation….the wooden staircase, the telescope, flowers and the service….friendly and efficient yet never intrusive. The vibrancy and local colour of the Waterfront might entice you to leave your luxurious surrounds to mingle with the buskers and dancers who bring indigenous music to life – on the other hand, each room and loft is such a haven of comfort and indulgence, we’d be surprised if you’d want to leave at all!

Some Historical Background
Built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse and converted in 1990 to a luxury hotel, it is named in honour of the Queen of England and her son who visited the Cape in 1870, when Prince Alfred officially opened the Breakwater basin, today’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
