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.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.
