Cape Town » V&A Waterfront » Queen Victoria Hotel

The Queen Victoria Hotel is the newest addition to Newmark Hotel's portfolio, which offers a myriad of ideally located upmarket hotels, other accommodation options and restaurants. What sets this unique five-star boutique hotel apart is the attention to detail given by the creative team responsible for its development, who achieved this through their unwavering passion for awe-inspiring design.

From the creative brief of 'where classic elegance meets contemporary design', every effort has been made to ensure that the 35-room Queen Victoria Hotel is a haven of calm, luxury and understated opulence amongst the hustle and bustle of Cape Town's popular V&A Waterfront.

The interiors create an ambience of peaceful elegance, through the use of greys and taupes, marble-clad walls, crystal chandeliers, white marble and wooden parquet flooring, not to mention the triple-volume foyer with its dramatic white spiral staircase, glass lift and crystal chandeliers. The signature shade of deep purple has been employed to add a touch of regal eccentricity as an ode to the historic figure after whom the hotel is named.

From the food and beverage offering at the hotel's restaurant and bar, Dash, to the interior aesthetic, the Queen Victoria Hotel embodies a sense of international flair fused with local flavour. The menu at Dash is structured around classic French cuisine, with all ingredients sourced locally and seasonally, while ninety per cent of the interior pieces were sourced from local design geniuses.

Accommodation

Luxury and sophistication emanate through to the 3 suites and 31 luxury rooms, each one individually designed and curated. With a consistent ambience of glamorous repose, most of the suites have panoramic views of either Table Mountain or Cape Town Harbour, and all of them have a fully stocked private mini bar and Molton Brown pamper accessories. The attention to detail is also something to behold, from the customised wallpaper uniquely designed with a cameo portrait of Queen Victoria and the laser-cut, paper-on-paper artwork of local fynbos to the hotel's very own designer fragrance that wafts through the suites and foyer.

There are three types of suites catering to the different needs and requirements of guests: Executive suite, Mountain Junior suite and then there is the proverbial jewel in the crown of the Queen Victoria - the presidential suite, including a wrap-around balcony with views overlooking Table Mountain and the harbour, as well as a dining room and an unconventionally large bathroom. This suite has been designed in such a way that the flow of interior and exterior space is ambiguous, with a double chaise longue bed on the balcony that encourages guests to linger longer and soak up the breathtaking scene in front of them.
