We stayed the past weekend at this hotel for 2 nights to be tourists in our own city. This was not our 1st stay probably 5 times before. We love this hotel as it is in the heart of the Waterfront. We had a deluxe room (634) very spacious and overlooking the harbour and Table Mountain. Bathroom very comfortable and... More

With the exception of the hotel's cheap coffee the Table Bay is very beautiful, a perfect location on the waterfront, lovely rooms with stellar views, amazing breakfast and a really a very nice property overall. The reason for the poor rating was what happened on the very last day. We checked out early at 8:00am, pretty much on time to... More

We booked a trip on the Rovos Rail train from Cape Town to Pretoria and booked into the Table Bay adjacent to the Waterfront Mall in Cape Town. The reception staff were extremely friendly and efficient, right down to the porter. We were shown to our room and familiarised with all the features. We had a beautiful view of the... More

This is a great hotel with an excellent location on the V&A Waterfront. There is direct access to the mall from the hotel with excellent shopping and many superb restaurants to choose from. The rooms are extremely comfortable with a beautiful view over the bay. Check-in and check-out was easy and hassle free. The bed was very comfortable with a... More

Lion World Tours did a great job putting our trip together. We stayed 4 nights at Table Bay Hotel. It was very clean, the staff were very nice and accommodating, and the food was delicious. We had breakfast, high tea and dinner. They all surpassed our expectations. We had a beautiful view of Table Mountain that our camera could not... More

A truly classic 5-star hotel with a superb location in Cape Town's V&A waterfront area. The location in Cape Town is very important, as the waterfront area is one of those areas, where you can safely walk around even later in the evening. The downtown area does have a few nice hotels as well, but my overall experience from it... More

This hotel is conveniently located on the V&A waterfront, which is it's major advantage. The waterfront area features several restaurants, bars and cafés that serve an array of mouth watering dishes, which you will appreciate as I found the hotel meal/snack menu to be lacking in variety. The breakfasts area had 2 serving points. On our first morning we were... More

We stayed here as part of a package with Lion World Travel and we were thoroughly impressed. When we first arrived we had one of the staff immediately give us a tour of the hotel and our room. Our room was nice, it had a great view of table mountain. The free breakfast there was excellent! They had a great... More

My family (kids 9&11 and husband) and I recently stayed at the Table Bay Hotel for 5 nights. We had an incredible time. Not only was the room comfortable and spacious, but the location of the hotel was incredible; we were close to many great restaurants, shopping (there is even a passage to the V & A shopping center), and...
