Cape Point, Wine and Garden Route

Day 1 to 4 - Victoria & Alfred Hotel

The personal hand written note of welcome is telling… as sign of the style that is the hallmark of a very special hotel… the style that sets the Victoria & Alfred Hotel on the Pier head in Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront apart. You can feel the ambience of colonial Cape Town as you step into the foyer, sense the past of shipwrecks and storms that colour every corner, then relax in the elegant contemporary bedrooms.. . and savour the atmosphere of the world’s most famous working harbour.

There are 94 spacious bedrooms, air-conditioned, en-suite, and spread over three floors. Our superior luxury double rooms boast separate bath, shower and toilet, king-sized beds and are creatively styled and well-appointed. All have coffee and tea on tap, with private bar, electronic safe, pay-for-view television, wireless internet plus high speed internet access and trouser press….every room has a view over the ever-awake Alfred Basin or Piazza. Truly unbeatable! Built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse and converted in 1990 to a luxury hotel, it is named in honour of the Queen of England and her son. Prince Alfred visited the Cape in 1870 and officially opened the Breakwater basin, today’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
