We stayed here for the first part of our New Years trip with friends. The location is great- we could walk to the v&a waterfront, restaurants and stores within 2 blocks, or take a quick $1-2 uber anywhere else we needed to go. Amazing views of Table Mountain! The breakfast isn't included and is kind of pricey for Cape Town... More

This was our final hotel stop, where we spent 3 nights, on our trip along the beautiful Garden Route. I stayed here with my partner, daughter, 21, and son, 16.

We stayed here for 5 days in December. The location is great.

Very friendly staff. 5 minutes drive to the waterfront. Complementary shuttle available to the waterfront. Very comfortable hotel. Superior rooms are spacious. Food is good. If you want to stay near the waterfront, this hotel should be on top of your list.

Enjoyed a three night stay at the Victoria Junction. It's been a while since I was there and the improvements to the decor have improved the interior and the rooms. The restaurant was busy for breakfast provision, but poorly supported in the evening - probably because the food provision is very limited and service not great....particularly if you choose to...

Stayed here for three nights pre- cruise. Great location, about 1k from the V&A waterfront. But, I would recommend taking a taxi for safety and comfort in the hot climate. Plenty of taxis outside hotel. We paid about 50 rand to the waterfront. The drivers tell you it's more but will settle at 50 if asked nicely! (£2.50). Loft room... More
