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.
In addition to the suites there is one paraplegic luxury room and the 31 remaining rooms are broken down into the following categories:
2 x Classic rooms
13 x Deluxe rooms
17 x Premium rooms
- All rooms are fitted with high-tech amenities: flat-screen TVs, wireless internet and unusual down lighters.
- All bedding is made from four hundred thread count pure Egyptian cotton.
Food & Wine
Dash Restaurant & Bar
Dash is the restaurant and bar offering at the Queen Victoria Hotel, named after the Queen’s favourite pet. There is nothing cute about this space, however. On the contrary it is the ultimate in sophisticated fine dining. Pioneered by highly acclaimed executive chef, Stephen Templeton, the 40-seat Dash offers patrons an elegant yet relaxed experience with a touch of drama in the presentation of his well-crafted menu. Taking his cue from the basis of all contemporary cuisine, a classic French style, Stephen focuses on the unique flavours of each ingredient, which, except for the caviar, are all sourced locally.
