Our stay at Table Bay was a great experience. The hotel backs up to the VA waterfront so you can walk out the back and be right in the middle of everything. There is shopping, restaurants, boat rides, helicopter tours and museums all within a short walk. This is your typical large hotel with all the amenities you would expect.... More

I just spent 5 nights here on a business trip. Beautiful corner room (622) overlooking the harbor and Table Mountain for about $300 per night. Breakfast was included and was an extensive buffet (I didn't know until my last day that I could also have eggs cooked to order). The location on the V&A waterfront is convenient and the hotel...

We stayed the past weekend at this hotel for 2 nights to be tourists in our own city. This was not our 1st stay probably 5 times before. We love this hotel as it is in the heart of the Waterfront. We had a deluxe room (634) very spacious and overlooking the harbour and Table Mountain. Bathroom very comfortable and... More

With the exception of the hotel's cheap coffee the Table Bay is very beautiful, a perfect location on the waterfront, lovely rooms with stellar views, amazing breakfast and a really a very nice property overall. The reason for the poor rating was what happened on the very last day. We checked out early at 8:00am, pretty much on time to... More

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback, the hotel does have access to cab drivers at the hotel to facilitate the speed of response for our guests and should this not be available, the most speedy alternative should be arranged. More

We booked a trip on the Rovos Rail train from Cape Town to Pretoria and booked into the Table Bay adjacent to the Waterfront Mall in Cape Town. The reception staff were extremely friendly and efficient, right down to the porter. We were shown to our room and familiarised with all the features. We had a beautiful view of the... More

Lion World Tours did a great job putting our trip together. We stayed 4 nights at Table Bay Hotel. It was very clean, the staff were very nice and accommodating, and the food was delicious. We had breakfast, high tea and dinner. They all surpassed our expectations. We had a beautiful view of Table Mountain that our camera could not... More

A truly classic 5-star hotel with a superb location in Cape Town's V&A waterfront area. The location in Cape Town is very important, as the waterfront area is one of those areas, where you can safely walk around even later in the evening. The downtown area does have a few nice hotels as well, but my overall experience from it... More

This hotel is conveniently located on the V&A waterfront, which is it's major advantage. The waterfront area features several restaurants, bars and cafés that serve an array of mouth watering dishes, which you will appreciate as I found the hotel meal/snack menu to be lacking in variety. The breakfasts area had 2 serving points. On our first morning we were... More
