OVERVIEW:

Victoria & Alfred Hotel is owned and operated by Newmark, a company specialising in camps, lodges, and hotels across Tanzania and SA. It’s a pretty iconic building, once the V&A Waterfront’s North Quay Warehouse as established in 1904! Named after Queen Victoria and her second son Alfred, since 1990 the structure has functioned as a hotel offering a sophisticated base from which to explore Cape Town and surrounds. Accommodation is usually booked on a B&B basis, including parking and Wi-Fi. The hotel is open all year round.

ACCESS & LOCATION:

The hotel can be accessed via 25 minutes’ drive from Cape Town’s international airport. It’s situated at the heart of the V&A Waterfront, with amazing views of the working harbour and of Table Mountain!
