  • Ideally located on the Waterfront. Very nice spacious room with views of Table Mountain and the marina, bathroom and toilet separated to look current and small lunch friendly, make the Victoria and Alfred Hotel the ideal hotel to visit Cape Town and its region. Very good value for money. Only downside, no swimming pool on site, go to another hotel that accepts guests at the V & A, but we would definitely stay there again!
