We stayed for 5 nights after spending time in Kruger. The view from our room was of Table Mountain. The hotel is very beautiful, every staff member we encountered could not have been more pleasant and the breakfasts are to die for. My favorite part of breakfast was the wonderful cappucino! The hotel offers a free shuttle to several sites... More

A first rate hotel in a magnificent setting. Beautiful views of Cape Town harbor from our room. A well done, traditionally decorated large room with a really big bathroom. There was a nice mini-bar stocked with reasonably priced items, and tea & coffee service. Fast free wifi a treat in a high end hotel. Of course their world famous buffet... More

We stayed 4 nights, and it was lovely. Our package included all transfers, a dinner at Camissa (restaurant located inside the hotel), and high tea. I loved the jasmine queen tea that was served during our afternoon high tea. It smelled wonderful, too. We had the 2 twin beds room, and they put rose petals on top of the bed... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in August. No complaints. Staff amazing, helpful. Rooms clean every day. Bathrooms luxurious. No plumbing problems, amazing water pressure and plenty of hot water. We were on the 2nd floor overlooking the ocean. We were the only room with a balcony with a table and two chairs on it. You could sit... More

What a beautiful hotel, fantastic staff, great location ....and the list goes on. My wife and I along with four others just returned from South Africa. We spent a week at the Table Bay Hotel and it was fantastic. This hotel may seem expensive but it is well worth the money. Each day starts out with a fantastic breakfast buffet.... More

This is a hotel in the classic style! Rooms are elegant and comfortable. Most have exceptional views of the waterfront or Cape Town and the Table. The staff were just wonderful. It seemed that we only had to think we needed something and it was provided. The concierge service exceeded exceptional. Table Bay has doorway access to a mall with... More

From our first view of the hotel it had the wow factor, and we were not disappointed. The rooms were excellent with wonderful views of Robin Island. The service from all staff was exceptional our every need was catered for. The buffet breakfast was very good, so much to choose from. All nationalities were catered for. Altogether a 5* experience

Our family of 4 stayed at Table Bay Hotel in August. The rooms were very nice, well appointed. The lobby, reception area, dining and bar areas were top notch. Our room was on the 3rd floor with a beautiful view of the harbor and Table Mountain. This hotel is incredibly convenient as it located right on the Victoria & Allfred... More

We were introduced to this magnificent hotel and the guide mentioned Michael Jackson stayed here when he last visited Cape Town. Thus, hopes were high and we were really impressed. The hotel was able to maintain great privacy by sending off people who were just visiting the hotel. Thus, the hotel is strictly for their guests. The staff were very... More

My wife and I are frequently travelers and typically stay in four or five star hotels. The Table Bay is truly a five star hotel. Rooms are very well designed and spacious. The quality is quiet good. The service was first class and the buffet breakfast was good (not great). The location is certainly nice if it's your first trip... More
