The Hotel is in a great position on the Waterfront in Cape Town so is in easy access to some great restaurants and also the shops. The Hotel is large but it does not have that anonymous feeling often found in big hotels. The room I had was very comfortable and well equipped with views over looking the ocean. The... More

When traveling in South Africa for pleasure I make it a point to never stay in a hotel. The country's myriad of B&B and guest houses make it utterly pointless. However, there are a few hotels that are at least interesting to walk through, to have drinks, or are situated so conveniently that they can pull me away from the... More

We stayed at this magnificent hotel with a tour group. It has everything you need and more. The location is fabulous, the rooms are great and breakfast is absolute spectacular. We have eaten in many hotels, but there is an amazing array of food in the buffet! Oysters, salmon, Asian, Italian and everything else you can imagine! The staff were... More

Great location, attentive and resourceful staff, great food, well-appointed and spacious rooms. Security is not just an afterthought. This hotel takes security seriously. Definitely a return stay is in order. Remember to book excursions in advance, even in the winter months.

Let me say the hotel is absolutely excellent. The room, the environment, the service. Everything perfect. But! I booked a family room that was supposed (according to the hotel) to host my wife, my 2 kids (11 and 12 yo) and myself. The room we were given had a small, old sofa that could not host the kids. Simply a... More

Thank you Table Bay Hotel for such a lovely weekend. You sure made my wife's birthday a memorable one. The cake, flowers and champagne you arranged for free were amazing. The breakfast absolutely perfect. The best location in Cape Town indeed.

while this hotel is in an excelent position and the food and service is of the same standard this cannot be said of the bedroom we occupied. The room requires attention with the shower leaking ans you could not turn off the TV. Thanks for thick towels

This hotel is absolutely superb. Rooms had every amenity imaginable, breakfast was outstanding, service amazing, concierge and reception staff remembered our names throughout our five day stay......amazing. Its proximity - linked to the Victoria and Albert Shopping centre - is as central as you could wish to be. Vistas from rooms are fantastic and there is a tremendous sense of... More

I spent few days there and I can say it was really beautiful and interesting days. The most excited thing is to see few seals in front of your window. The barking seals instead of crowing rooster unforgettable.

After an awful encounter at another hotel I sighed a huge sigh of relief checking back into this magnificent hotel. This truly is the best address is Cape Town! Well done Sherwin, Shaun, Sandy and team. This hotel makes me proud to be South African.
