The style is anything but 19th-century, with spacious rooms, marble bathrooms and a soaring lobby decked out in whites and creams and warmed up with royal purples and opulent fabrics. The effect is glamorous, making this the perfect Cape Town escape for romance-seeking couples.
From the food and beverage offering at the hotel’s restaurant and bar, Dash, to the interior aesthetic, the Queen Victoria Hotel embodies a sense of international flair fused with local flavour. The menu at Dash is structured around classic French cuisine, with all ingredients sourced locally and seasonally, while ninety per cent of the interior pieces were sourced from local design geniuses. With a management team and staff dedicated to making every guest feel like royalty, a stay at the Queen Victoria Hotel will certainly exceed your expectation of what five-star luxury should be like.
|Paul, our Sales Director, recently visited and reports, "Wow! What can we say, this hotel is beautiful! Overlooking Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, the Queen Victoria Hotel is a unique 5-star boutique hotel, perfect for a young, trendy client not wishing the ‘stuffiness’ of the Cape Grace or Mount Nelson. The reception area is modern-chic with greys, blacks and whites and there is a stunning staircase leading from the atrium to the rooms. There are also specially-commissioned artworks by a British artist that adorn the walls of the hotel. Each of 35 individually designed rooms are situated around an Atrium, and all have a fabulous king-size bed, fully stocked mini-bar, tea/coffee facility, flat-screen TV, complimentary wireless internet, and designer bathroom with bath and shower. The bar is off the atrium, which then leads into the restaurant. The swimming pool for this hotel is located at their sister property - Dock House – which is across the road. The hotel offers secure parking and full concierge service, as well as 24 hour room service, state-of-the-art gym facilities and a designer Spa."
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.
This leisurely holiday gives you the chance to see Cape Town, a private safari in the Kruger and visit the spectacular Victoria Falls
