One of the nicest places we've ever stayed. Overlooked the bay, the city, and Table Mountain in the background. We were fortunate to have been there during the Volvo Ocean Race so had a great view of the yachts from our window. The breakfast buffet was by far the best. It included any possible breakfast choice imaginable!

We've stayed at The Table Bay Hotel in March and what a surprise. The hotel is part of the V&A Waterfront, so, ample place for shopping, dining and sight seeing. Our room had views of both Table Mountain and Lions Head and the mornings were misty and cool. Perfect Cape Town weather.

My wife and very much enjoyed this hotel. Location is very convenient. Many dining options literally right out the back door. The rooms are good size and well outfitted. The breakfast buffet is robust. Staff are friendly and very willing to help.

I stayed here while on vacation with friends. My expectations were exceedingly meet. The views both from the front and back of the hotel are magnificent. The room are sensational and the service is outstanding. The hotel is attached to a very high end mall. Don't miss the high tea.

In my humble opinion this hotel is all front with little or no back up! Lots of people in suits wandering around the lobbies and restaurants but dig a little deeper and it all falls apart. We were part of a group and check in was painless with bags delivered to our room in an acceptable time, pity that the... More

Our room on the fifth floor was large and on arrival there were pink and red petals everywhere. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had separate bath and shower. The view from the window was even better, taking in the harbour, Table Mountain, Signal Hill and Lions Head. Breakfast was very good with every kind of food on... More

Wow. wow and wow. What an awesome time we had this week-end at the Table Bay. It was my birthday week-end and the Table Bay sure went the extra mile to make it special for me. On entering our room a lovely bottle of bubbly awaited us with a beautiful little cake. Next whilst sitting in the jacuzzi another beautiful... More

Not up to 5 Stars. We wanted to stay at high-end properties during our trip to Africa. We spent the first Two-days in a small boutique hotel (Rosmead-wonderful!) and then did a safari for two days followed up with two days in the best hotel on the waterfront. Unfortunately we didn't chose well here. The hotel appears as extravagant as... More

I just loved staying at this hotel for 2 nights. The staff were warm and friendly, the breakfast buffet is exceptionally varied and delicious (e.g., many types of fresh tropical fruit juices, multiple types of smoked salmon, etc.) and the rooms were quite elegant. You can't go wrong with the spectacular views of the ocean on one side of the... More
