Table Bay was a great place to stay for base of excursions around Cape Town. Everything that would be needed was attended to with care and in a professional manner. The breakfast selections were not to be missed.

We were four friends, visiting the hotel on Friday evening, sitting outside on the beautiful terrace, with good service But we were surrounded by rats! Running around and making terrible noises! When we pointed this out to the waitress, her reply was that they were harmless! Not good! Not hygienic! Not at all accceptable! Looking forward to hear from you!

How amazing! You look out of your bedroom window and see the iconic view that is Cape Town. This really is one of the best hotels. The rooms and the service are extreme. We went out one evening and stupidly left our room safe open. When we returned there was a note for us to contact security who had locked... More

Our room overlooked Table Mountain and the view was tremendous. Not so much the mountain...after all it's static and didn't change. But we were also able to see the Bay with all the marine traffic going in and out. The food and service here is excellent, as you should expect. Very nice location, just beautiful. It's connected to the Mall,... More

A very well appointed hotel in a perfect location. The staff was friendly and attentive. The only problem was not really the hotels fault. There was a rotting fishy smell in the air that was present throughout the halls and sleeping rooms and the entire harbor area. At first I thought it was "Red Tide" but the water is to... More

Thank you for your post on Tripadvisor, we appreciate your comments. We do have the most amazing location on a working harbour, and occasionally the smells of the ocean cast over us, generally these are very pleasant! More

This hotel is ideally located as a luxury hotel for overseas tourists to Cape Town. the V&A waterfront is one of the key attractions and this hotel is part of the complex which means that one explore the waterfront precinct at leisure in the evening. Typical 5 star amenities with stunning views and facilities.

Hotel is well-located and provided excellent service. It is close to Table Mountain. Also close to the water front for shopping and dining choices. Hotel staff was absolutely helpful when my father left his camera in a nearby restaurant. We were already in Johannesburg when he realized that his camera was missing. Not only did hotel staff track it down,... More

When I asked them for a picnic to take up Lions Head - they supplied a salad, some more champagne, a cheese board, gorgeous chilli... More

The best thing about this hotel as my title suggests is Location. Situated at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront area, there is lot of activities to do. You can also freely move around in this area - without fear of getting mugged. Hotel is connected to the Mall and the Mall has lots of Restaurants and shops. You can buy simcard/... More
