The Victoria & Alfred Hotel was the first hotel built on Cape Town’s magnificent Waterfront and overlooks a harbor of world-class yachts. Lovely and luxurious, it retains the best location on the quay and has a well-deserved reputation for personal service.

The simple colonial decor of its public areas extends comfortably into the gym, pool, restaurant and bar. There are several classes of rooms and suites, half of which overlook the harbor, and half Table Mountain. The rooms are contemporary and plush.

Originally built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse and converted in 1990 to a luxury hotel, and since refubished into an even more spectacular property, it is named in honor 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.
