Just had amazing week at the Taj. We are a family of 5 and stayed in a 2 bedroom suite on the executive floor which gives excellent benefits. Having visited Cape Town many times this is Truly the Best Hotel. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming, but a special thank you must go out to Talent, Bertram and... More

When you arrive, there is a friendliness and helpful attitude from the people taking your luggage, to the check-in personnel. The room was fantastic with a desk that was great, free WiFi and an unbelievable bed. The pillows are great and the bathroom is fantastic with 2 shelves in the shower for your shaving accessories - not found in most... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Taj. The Bombay Brasserie was exceptional -best Indian meal we have ever had. Breakfast was really good. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only negative was when we returned to our room and it was obvious that someone had been smoking in our room. It was reported and dealt with immediately. Sandra and... More

Do you want comfort, excellence, wonderful bedrooms, delicious food and excellent service; well the Taj is the place to stay! From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you will have a great experience. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast buffet, for example, has such a full range of food that it has to be seen to... More

After checking in and until my departure everything went exactly as it should, all thanks to the excellent staff working at this hotel. Checking in was not a good experience for such high end hotel. Had to wait almost half an hour to be attended to. Rooms are comfortable but due to plasterboard panels being used to separate rooms, noise... More

The Taj Cape Town is a wonderful hotel. Ideal for leisure and business, it is perfectly located on Wale street, a walking distance to many of Cape Town's attractions. The hotel has a wonderful spa and a splendid Indian restaurant. Staff are delightful, the furnishings are lovely and the rooms are smashing. Most highly recommended.

Taj hotels are my lifeline when working in India, but excellent to see the standards are kept high across the group. Staying with our 2yr old, they got her a toy rhino, full range of Johnsons baby toiletries. Building from this high starting point they continued to excel with the quality of food and drinks, driven higher by the exceptional... More

I really regretted staying here. The housekeeping staff was horrible. I would have to repeatedly ask for things like extra sheets or water. The concierges were very cold and impersonal. We stayed there 4 days and the bathrooms never got cleaned, the toiletries were never replenished, I had to repeatedly request them. One day the water bottles came with stuff... More

After 3 days at One and Only we moved to Taj for the last 3 days of our trip. The difference in staff was noticeable. While still professional, the staff and Taj warm warm and friendly. We felt we were coming home each time we entered the lobby. They could not have been more helpful. Accommodations were lovely, clean and... More
