Exceptional 10,0 has no service help line hat works
Excellent service and friendly staff . Morning breakfast was the best in Cape Town with friendly staff . But I will never book through ever again as well as Expedia. They caused me to pay double for my stay . You can never get hold of them at all !!!!!! How about yourl send us a client review survey for and not the Victoria and Alfred.
David Patrick, za1 night business trip
Exceptional 10,0
Our stay was fantastic. We had a flood in the bathroom from a blocked drain in the shower. The housekeeping and maintenance team were there within 5 minutes to sort it out. The location of the hotel is so convenient and easy to access. The breakfast was very good. We'll definitely stay at the hotel again.

Total satisfaction
You would be very hard pressed to find fault with this magnificent hotel. Absolutely everything was superb, and walking distance to all of the waterfront activities. The staff are especially great, the entire stay was a joy. Their breakfasts are of the best I have encountered in a long while.

Quick trip
Great location and service, but food and drinks were costly by South African standards
Debra, za2 night business trip

Overall a Very Comfortable Hotel
It's a very comfortable, classic but a little dated hotel in a great location. Checkin desk and restaurant staff may wish to be more attentive to guests. Cleaning staff may wish to relocate their equipment including buckets and mops away from areas they are no longer working (such as outside a guest's room door the entire stay). Luggage/porter staff are amazing, friendly & helpful. TV in room's reception was very poor - reminded me of the 80s and bunny aerial reception. You cannot use Uber right outside this hotel - you have to move about 20m down the road to be able to specify a pickup - not great if your leg is in a cast and don't want to use the exorbitantly-priced local metered taxis parked right outside. And lastly, if a guest has an obvious injury (wearing a cast) it may be more appropriate to locate that guest in a room the furthest possible distance away.
