Pocket Guide: Cape Town Clock Tower Hotels

The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront Clock Tower is located in Table Bay Harbour on Cape Town’s waterfront. The Gothic-style Clock Tower, which was built in 1882, originally served as the port captain’s office, and is a major landmark in Cape Town.

What Kind of Accommodation Is Available near the Clock Tower?

You’ll find a wide range of hotels around the Clock Tower, from apartments and bed and breakfasts to villas and guesthouses. Families will enjoy well-equipped hotels with outdoor swimming pools, babysitting and children’s activities, while business travellers will find all kinds of amenities, including conference facilities, fitness centres and spa services, at larger hotels. Proximity to the harbour’s many entertainment and shopping venues is a big plus, and with such a wide choice of accommodation available, good deals can be found even in the busier seasons.

The Clock Tower: A Historical Landmark

The distinctive walls of the Clock Tower are still painted in the same shade of red that adorned them in the 1800s, but the dominant feature is of course the clock itself, which was imported from Edinburgh. The Clock Tower has been a focal point in the urban renewal of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront – this busy harbour has become a major entertainment venue with restaurants, theatres, movies and specialty shops. As you’d expect, a wide range of hotels can be found within easy walking distance.

Sightseeing around The Clock Tower

The Clock Tower serves as a portal to the many sightseeing opportunities around the Cape Town harbour. Inside the tower, inspect the old tidal-gauge mechanism on the bottom floor, which was used to check tide levels. On the second floor you’ll find a mirrored room that allowed the port captain a full view of all harbour activities. The top floor holds the restored clock mechanism, which is still in use today.

From the clock tower, take a cruise around the harbour or an excursion out to the museum on Robben Island. Look for Cape fur seals swimming in the water, explore the Cape Town Diamond Museum and visit the 19th-century Breakwater Prison. With so much to do nearby, a Clock Tower hotel makes a superb base for your Western Cape stay.
