Queen Victoria Hotel

Queen Victoria Hotel

What sets the Queen Victoria Hotel apart from other hotels at the world-renowned V&A Waterfront is undoubtedly its position. Located within a precinct of heritage buildings along Portswood Road – a main artery leading to and from the Waterfront – the Queen Victoria Hotel gives you a sense of being within the Waterfront’s vicinity but removed from the frenetic pace of it.

The advantage of this is that, while staying at the Queen Victoria Hotel, you have easy access to the Waterfront – the shopping precincts, the harbour, the restaurants and other must-see attractions yet you are positioned away from it, in a relaxed, secluded enclave that overlooks majestic Table Mountain, the City Bowl, Cape Town Harbour and the Atlantic Ocean.

The Sanctuary Spa and pool at Dock House Boutique Hotel, breakfast, lunch or dinner at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel’s fine-dining OYO Restaurant & Cocktail Bar, as well as its conferencing and banqueting facility, The Forum.


Luxury and sophistication emanate through to the 3 suites and 32 luxury rooms, each one individually designed and curated. With a consistent ambience of glamorous repose, most of the suites have panoramic views of either Table Mountain or Cape Town Harbour, and all of them have a fully stocked private mini bar and Charlotte Rhys pamper accessories. The attention to detail is also something to behold, from the customised wallpaper uniquely designed with a cameo portrait of Queen Victoria and the laser cut, paper-on-paper artwork of local fynbos to the hotel’s very own designer fragrance that wafts through the suites and foyer.

Queen Victoria Hotel has 15 Deluxe, 17 Premium, 1 Junior Mountain Suite, 1 Executive Suite and 1 Presidential Suite.

  • Deluxe Rooms – Deluxe Rooms overlook the courtyard and range in size from 38 – 46 sq. metres.
  • Premium Rooms – Premium Rooms enjoy views of the working harbour and/or Table Mountain. The difference between Deluxe and Premium rooms are primarily the views. Premium rooms range in size from 35 – 54 sq. metres.
  • Junior Mountain Suite – The Junior Mountain Suite has beautiful views of Table Mountain and the working harbour. This suite consists of a large bedroom which includes a lounge area and open-plan bathroom and balcony. The Junior Mountain Suite is 63 sq. metres in size.
  • Executive Suite – The Executive Suite has a separate bedroom, lounge and bathroom with TVs in both the bedroom and lounge. This room is 50 sq. metres and has a balcony overlooking the courtyard.
  • Presidential Suite -This suite has been designed in such a way that the flow of interior and exterior space is ambiguous, with a double chaise lounge bed on the balcony that encourages guests to linger longer and soak up the breath taking views overlooking Table Mountain and the working harbour. The spacious dining room and contemporary style lounge leads to a luxurious bedroom with a king-sized bed and an unconventionally large bathroom. This suite is 124 sq. metres in size.
