This was our first trip to South Africa for our 10th anniversary. My wife and I loved everything about this hotel. The service was excellent, the rooms are very nice. The breakfast buffet is amazing... The concierge service was one of the highlights. Location doesn't get better with this hotel being on the waterfront just feet away from shopping and... More

My stay here started with a sour taste as I had a fraud on the credit card I had used to make this booking.The hotel had asked me to scan and send my passport, both sides of my credit cards and address details. Surprise surprise, someone in South Africa purchased an air ticket from my card my UK bank reliably... More

Our tea was excellent and better than you know where. The savoury items were particularly nice, scones gorgeous and so many cakes you could only try a fraction of them. Our seats were comfortable and the service was attentive, although it took us some time to pay the bill.

Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor, we had high expectations for this hotel which unfortunately failed to materialise. It all started well - the hotel is in a fantastic waterfront location, the entrance and lobby is gorgeous and our check-in was friendly and efficient. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived but they told us they were upgrading us... More

I always look forward to staying at this hotel for one very good reason: The service is unmeasurable. The staff are be so well trained and pleasant towards that before I even think of asking for something it's already there. A few hotels have built a tradition of great service over the years but Table Bay hotel has done just... More

You cannot beat the location of this very nice hotel. It is on the waterfront, walking distance from many attractions. An outstanding feature is the breakfast. Free wifi (fast). Rooms have beautiful views. Can reccomend this hotel.

We started our South Africa trip with three nights at the Bay hotel. The last time we went there was 15 years ago and we were looking forward to the stay very much indeed....this time with our three children. The hotel is still great but if I'm honest parts of it are looking a little 'tired'....the bathrooms in our two... More

An opulant - if not slightly over the top - hotel. As others noted, there is direct access to the V&A mall on the floor immediately above the lobby. Small gym and small pool, but not overcrowded. The breakfast buffet had juices, smoothies, a diabetic station, indian food, japenese food, as well as traditional american and european offerings. Lots of... More

This is probably the best hotel in Cape Town, located at the hugely popular V & A and with superb room views of either Table Mountain or the bay. The bedrooms are very well appointed, the beds and linen excellent. The food and drinks are reasonable and well served and there is direct access to the V&A mall. Highly recommended.
