About Victoria and Alfred Hotel Waterfront

It's the personal touches that set the Victoria and Alfred Hotel on the Pierhead at Cape Town's Waterfront apart as an extraordinary hotel; the handwritten welcome notes, the warm hospitality all contribute to the sense of a uniquely luxurious stay.

Colonial Cape Town's rich history is showcased by the décor and air of the V&A Hotel. Set on the world's most famous working harbour, the atmosphere of the hotel manifests itself in all aspects, which is experienced during your stay at the Victoria and Alfred Hotel.

The V&A hotel was built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse, and then converted to a luxury hotel in 1990. The name was selected in honour of the Queen of England and her son who visited the Cape in 1870, when Prince Alfred officially opened the Breakwater Basin, which is today known as the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
