We spent our wedding anniversary at the V&A Hotel and loved it. Our room had an outside jacuzzi which was prepared with rose pedals for us. Absolutly stunning and unforgettable. Hopefully we can go there again to celebrate another special occassion.

Kind regards,
Lesedi Moganetsi


Really nice hotel with THE BEST LOCATION you can ever imagine in Cape Town; on the waters edge at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. We stayed in a Mountain Facing room which is great, good views of Table Mountain and also the harbour.

Portia Sebola, Johannesburg (South Africa)







Couldn't think of a hotel with a better location. Right at the waterfront, surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops. Our room had nice views over the harbour and Table Mountain, spectacular. Both my wife and I loved our stay at the V&A Hotel. It was ideal for us.

Many thanks,
Anthony Mentor (Johannesburg)
