This hotel is lovely. It sits right off the esplanade and overlooks the harbor where tourists and locals alike come to stroll, dine and shop. It has an old world elegance in everything from the decor to the very kind and attentive staff. Dark brown wood and cream colors make it feel very serene. It is one of the few... More

A visit to the Table Bay is a full-on experience of the wonder of Cape Town. Table mountain, the harbour and the bay are always hovering in the back-ground, and peeping through your bedroom window. Inside, the magic continues with staff displaying warm Cape Tonian friendliness, all with the utmost professionalism. The rich, warm, nautical decor and old-worldly ambiance add... More

Great location for a hotel but the big issue is that it's too big and the service is not personal. You are treated like a number - no idea how it's a "Leading Hotel", it's the worst one I have been to. Here's a laundry list of our experience: 1. Forgot to pick us up from airport. 2. Sent car:...

We stayed at the Table Bay Hotel for 6 nights while we were in town for a wedding. While the location and convenience of the hotel are without question, the service was not worthy of anything near 5 stars. The reception was less than friendly when we checked in and when I asked if they could make change so that... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. The last time was about 7 years ago. We booked here again because I have lusted over their breakfast buffet since then. I was slightly disappointed on my first morning as the fruit table had no passion fruit. A casual mention of this to the bellman in the elevator that night and... More

This hotel is lovely, it's beautiful decorated, wonderful location, lots of areas to sit and relax and have a drink. You could not get a better location, you can walk to most places from the hotel! The room we had was lovely, it was a family room so slightly bigger than most. Lovely bedding, towels and Molton Brown toiletries. The... More

The hotel is good but not great! We noticed 2 mice running around the terrace area just before some guests came to have dinner on that same table. Staff are not as friendly as Ive experienced at other hotels in Cape Town.

This hotel is extremely beautiful inside. The décor and food were both amazing. Try their high tea, it is very romantic. I loved the idea that I could walk from the hotel directly into the shopping mall of the Waterfront! The outside pool and chill area are also very good, I loved the slightly warm water of the pool and... More

This hotel is pure luxury and they know how to look after guests. The views over the ocean as the sun sets are spectacular. The customer service is second to none. High tea should not be missed with its beautiful array of cakes pastries and teas. The local shopping is absolute high end with artisan arts and craft galore.The local... More
