Ahhhh! The Vineyard Hotel is a really top-class hotel. It has been around foralong time-and I can highly recommend it. The service is good, and the food is superb, with a typical South African influence. There are also good bars & ther facilities.
The Victoria & Albert is also good- but situated in a very touristy area.It is popular with foreign travellers.
My personal favourite hotel is the Hohenhort. It is perfect in every way.
Have a look at the website:

ITs all about location, The Vineyard hotel and spa, is stunning,I was there a few months ago, and tried the spa as well, but away from the Centre of Cape Town. The V&A is right in the Waterfront, very touristy,but also good.
I would look up on the map where they are situated, and depending if you have a rented car, should not be a problem , both hotels will have shuttle services.

Yes-exactly what I have stated, Antonela

I totally agree with Lynne - you cant go wrong. Both are exceptional hotels.

I take it that you are referring to the 2010 football games next year. If that is the case then the V&A waterfront is your best bet, cause it is close to the stadium as well as city centre. You can use taxi's to get around which is safe. If you want to know anything else, do not hesitate to drop me a note

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Table Mountain dominates Cape...

by KarmaKomet

Table Mountain dominates Cape Town like a magnet to all visitors
When it's clear, the views from the top are phenomenal with the Indian Ocean to the east and the colder Atlantic Ocean to the west and there are some excellent walks on the summit.
There is a cable car to the summit but Walk up, there's is no point saying you were there if you didn't walk up it, I’m not as fit as I used to be and I survived! You can get the cable car back down after all, and if you there early bungee-jump out of the car!
I have to admit I wanted to take the easy option but after being forced into climbing up I realise it would have been a tragedy if I hadn’t.

The trek will nearly kill you, it's top is at 6000ft above the city. My advice would be not to stay out to 6am the previous night, bring bottled water and Jackets for the colder windy top. We kinda looked silly, hungover de-hydrated, and freezing! There’s a lovely restaurant at the summit where you can refresh yourself and take some nice photos. Brilliant!

Most things you can purchase here

by jo104

A daypack is useful for trips to the beach or walks. Be aware that if you go to any supermarkets you will be charged for a plastic bag so best to carry your own A sun hat & sunglasses are a must in summer. Good walking shoes are advisable as is a pair of sandals or thongs (slops). In summer it can be windy depending which time you visit so a windbreaker & a light jersey to layer clothes. The closer you get to the mountain the colder the nights will be. Moisquito repellent, suncream, headache pills etc can be bought at any pharmacy. Some B&B's provide toiletries but its best to check first. SA plugs are std 3 pin round although many places will have adapters for 2 plug round (ie shavers, electric toothbrush) UK can take over Europe adapter & plug into SA adapter & Europe plugs will fit SA 2 plug adapter. Bring your charger, there are places to develop digital prints instantly. Hotels will mostly not supply beach towels although you could buy them for your trip in Cape Town cheaply & leave them behind afterwards. Do not take your expensive jewellery with you on holiday it could attract the wrong attention. You can purchase great jewellery in SA at the craft markets beaded jewellery is very fashionable & reasonable

Cape Agulhas - where Atlantic meets Indian Ocean

by grets

No natural boundary seperates the two oceans, but the geographical boundary is generally recognised to be here at Cape Agulhas

At Cape Point, the warm Mozambique current meets the cold Benguela current, making a significant impact on all forms of marine life in the vicinity and on the flora on the peninsula.

The shopping focus of the...

by jill_archer

The shopping focus of the waterfront is the Victoria Wharf, an enormous flashy mall on two levels, inside the mall you could be in any large city in the world, but the resturants and cafes with outdoor seating have fabulous views of table mountain across the busy harbour.

Cape Town's only floating restaurant

by glennkasner about SEA HORSE

For a different view of the city, why not take a dinner cruise through the Victoria Basin, Duncan and Ben Schoeman docks.
They offer a 3 course a la carte menue and live band.

Cruises sail subject to weather conditions - seems to be restricted in very windy conditions
