Our stay at table bay was very disappointing for me and my husband as honeymooners. We had to wait for a table for breakfast 3 days in a row! And it takes them 15-20 minutes to prepare an omelette! Also, the housekeeping people knock on our door almost 3 times a day for no reason regardless the privacy sign kept... More

We stayed here for six nights and had a wonderful room overlooking the harbour with Table Mountain as the backdrop. The service was slow on the terrace and in the bar. The staff, in the main, are courteous and seem well-trained. I was given a voucher for free afternoon which would have been wonderful but for my gluten allergy. We... More

The security in and around the hotel is good and access to the upper floors is by lift /room key via a roped of area overseen by genial... More

The breakfast buffet is wonderful and has a huge variety. The outside area is on the waterfront, but the birds can be a nuisance. We had several small issues with the hotel staff, but overall it was a very nice hotel. We had high tea at the hotel and afterwards were too full for dinner! We almost missed out on... More

A simply lovely hotel right at the V&A waterfront. We stayed 4 days, after our cruise ended in Capetown, and the ship actually docked within 100 yards of the hotel!! Pretty easy to transfer luggage! The breakfast buffet was the finest we have ever seen...there was an entire room dedicated to just juices and smoothies!! Selection and quality +++. Staff... More

Excellent hotel. Perfect location. For our 30th anniversary we chose Cape Town and Table Bay. We are happy that we did. Cape Town is a beautiful city and Table Bay is a gem in that city. Location can't be better. Right on V&A Waterfront (one of the most happening places in Cape Town) with plenty of eating options. Hotel is... More

The hotel is located at a place within walking distance from a mall, restaurants and the harbour. The rooms are cosy and a decent four-star type. My room was one overlooking Table Mountain and the harbour where I used my super-zoomer to take great photos just from my window. This was the only hotel during my South African trip where... More

We booked 5 bedrooms in the hotel for a 50th birthday celebration weekend. All 5 rooms were on the 6th floor - the views were fantastic. The attention to detail in service was fantastic - we were all met by luggage porters on arrival, each of us were personally escorted to our rooms and champagne was served promptly in our... More
