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.
The 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. Located only 5 min walk away from the Great Zimbabwe Monuments, where guests can take part in informative guided tours, and renowned for the exceptional warmth of its staff, this hotel will treat you to real authentic African Hospitality.
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. 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.
The hotel has a range of outdoor activities such as swimming and volleyball.
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.
