The great room (with a view) was matched by professional and friendly service and quality food. I enjoyed a large suite with a big double bedroom, lounge and dining area. The complimentary fruit and wine also went down well. Attention to detail makes this hotel worthy of its stars.

Yes, we stayed for 2 weeks in a two bedroom suit. The rooms, and bathrooms were very clean. Housekeeping ladies were gracious. Housekeeping & Room service is efficient. The Mint restaurant provides a good range of selections for breakfast. The kids enjoyed the indoor swimming pool and the hot chocolate at the club lounge. Free shuttle is provided to take... More

This is a wonderfully enjoyable hotel -- it combines both beauty and extraordinary service in a way that leaves other hotels dumbstruck. The staff here -- each and every one -- sets a global standard that will be hard to match elsewhere. Everyone is friendly, attentive, and helpful. Indeed, they are not satisfied unless they are helping you with something.... More

Wonderful stay at The Taj, first afternoon there, we were taken by the hotel's Range Rover to Table mountain and arranged a time to be picked up also. The courtesy shuttle was useful also and we used it several times back and forth from the waterfront. Beautiful hotel with excellent staff and a view to die for facing Table mountain.... More

Centrally located, I was stunned when showed to our room, fabulous floor to ceiling picture window with a view over the cathedral to Table Mountain, what a view! The staff are ultra efficient and could not be more helpful with advice and booking. I like the fact that you can lie in the bath and either look at the mountain... More

Fantastic hotel - up there with the best - could not fault the room, the staff, the breakfast. We left a charger somewhere ( may not even have been in the hotel) on our travels - and they even managed to find us a replacement !

I used this for a business trip in June. Perfect location for the office in the centre of town with easy access to restaurants. Service efficient and friendly. Welcoming bar. Very comfortable room with good wifi. Used the hotel cars for travel to and from the airport, which is to be recommended.

This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The beauty of the old exterior in conjunction with ultra modern rooms makes this the perfect combination. The service is exceptional. We only ate at the breakfast buffet and it was really good, offering to cook eggs any way you desire along with plenty of fresh fruit and... More

I stayed here in December 2013 on a business trip. The hotel has a stanrgley cramped reception for you and then the hotel opens up and you have spacious, generous rooms which are well-equipped and comfortable. The breakfast, bar/restaurant are good and the staff are super nice. The breakfast area had a leak in the tall ceiling when I was... More

The service was superb, from the accommodation to the Mint Restaurant. The staff are dedicated and very well trained - they made us feel very special indeed. They assisted me with my diatery requirements for the evening meal and spoiled me with gluten free muffins and bread during the breakfast. I can definitely recommend the Taj.
