Location excellent, friendly and helpful staff, but the air con at the room was so noisy & couldn't get it shut down, it was difficult to sleep. Beds could have been more comfy too. Nice breakfast buffet, but omelette cost extra.

very comfortable stay

The V&A hotel is very conveniently located at the waterfront, rooms are comfortable (I liked the cozy feel and quiet position of the loft rooms) and clean. What made it such a lovely stay is the V&A staff though, they were, without exception, welcoming, friendly and very helpful, from the maid to the reception staff and porters, as well as restaurant personnel. Liesl from travel services deserves an extra mention - she's been very helpful and clearly enjoys her job. I enjoyed the restaurant's special crayfish deal so much that I had it twice in a row - great value and very tasty. Happy to come back to the V&A some time soon.

Superb waterfront location

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Victoria & Alfred. We loved the location and enjoyed fantastic leisurely breakfasts (one of the best breakfasts we have ever had) sitting outside overlooking the waterfront. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful and each morning our car was cleaned in the hotel car park. We stayed in a Superior Luxury Piazza facing double room. The room itself was spacious and comfortable but the decor and furnishings were very dark and in our opinion it could do with a lighter/brighter colour scheme with perhaps a picture or two on the walls. It would then be more pleasing to the eye. The bathroom was fantastic..

tolle Lage, sensationelles Frühstück

Pros: zentrale Lage und doch relativ ruhig. Parkplätze vorhanden
Location: direkt an der Waterfront. Alle Angebote von Hafen Rundfahrt, Helikopterflüge, Hop on Hop off Buse, Shopping, Robbenisland, essen,
Wir kannten das Hotel schon vom letzten Aufenthalt vor 2 Jahren. Hat sich gesteigert! Sehr freundliches Personal bei Empfang und auch in den Restaurants. Das Zimmer (Berg- und Hafensicht) war angenehm ruhig, sehr gross und sauber. Das Frühstück war sensationell!!¨Auf drei grossen Holztischen wurden so viele leckere Speisen angeboten, dass man aufs warme Frühstück verzichtete. Wir kommen gerne wieder
