rivalled only by its relaxed atmosphere and warm personal service. Built in 1904 as the North Quay
Warehouse and converted in 1990 to a luxury hotel, it is named in honour of the Queen of England and
her son who visited the Cape in 1870, when Prince Alfred officially opened the Breakwater basin,
today’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
The North Quay Warehouse is one of the many buildings at the Waterfront which has been restored and used for new purposes.
