General

Framed by the ocean and Table Mountain, the elegance and luxury of the Victoria and Alfred Hotel is rivaled only by its relaxed atmosphere and warm personal service. 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.

It’s the 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. Then there are the 94 bedrooms – air-conditioned, en-suite rooms with separate bath, shower and toilet, ultra comfortable, with king sized beds, creatively styled and well appointed, on just three floors. All have coffee and tea on tap, with private bar, safe, trouser press, High Speed Broad Band Internet connectivity Pay-for View Television and state-of-the-art flat screen televisions. Every single room has a view over the ever awake Alfred Basin, majestic Table Mountain or the piazza.

    Very conveniently situated on the Waterfront and easy to find with free parking. We arrived from the airport before our room was ready and they just sent us out to sit by the harbour and gave us coffee - a lovely sunny welcome to South Africa The staff were, without exception, wonderful.

    A bit more space in the bedroom would have been welcome. The bathroom looked a bit dated

Cape Town

Cape Town

Cape Town holidays is much more than a City Break! Cape Point offers rugged cliffs, scenic coastline, baboons and wild ostriches. The wooden walkways of Boulders beach allow you to observe the African penguins in their natural habitat without disturbing them.

Visit Simons Town, a haven for visitors interested in maritime history. Visit the statue of Able Seaman Just Nuisance and hear the story of this legendary Great Dane (and friend); Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens is a must for every visitor to Cape Town and is a haven for lovers of nature, flora and fauna.

Sports and nature

Sports and natureCapetonians are just as passionate about their sport as the rest of South Africa. Catch a game of cricket or rugby at Newlands or try one of the many world class golf courses. Adrenaline pumping sports include Dune Surfing; Abseil down Table Mountain; Kayaking and Tandem Paragliding to name but a few. Of the world’s six floral kingdoms, the Floral Kingdom of the Cape has been declared a World Heritage Site; Reserves include Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve whilst the Jackass Penguin Colony near Simonstown is a must for all visitors

Nightlife

NightlifeCape Town entertainment and nightlife has something special that will appeal to everyone’s taste. Maybe it’s the diverse selection of places to choose from, which range from top class international venues, to settings with a typically warm and local flavour. Some may say it’s the mix of interesting personalities and attractive qualities of the people you will meet. Whatever the case, Cape Town has a vibe and an energy that will have you partying the night away, sipping cocktails overlooking the sparkling sea or just relaxing, ‘chilling out’, and enjoying the city’s unique atmosphere.

Culture & history

Culture & historyCape Town has a fascinating history, and as a result the modern-day culture of those who live here is both vibrant and eclectic. A good place to start your exploration into Cape Town's past is with the city's oldest building at the Castle of Good Hope, built as a fortress by the first white settlers, the Dutch. Robben Island is one of Cape Town's biggest tourist attractions and is a major highlight on any trip to the Mother City. Many of South Africa's most famous freedom fighters were incarcerated here, including Nelson Mandela, who spent 18 years on the island. Growing in popularity are tours to the townships on the Cape Flats, where a new urban culture is being forged. Tours provide a ‘behind the scenes' look at how communities live and work with visits to arts and crafts facilities and sustainable and environmental development projects.
