First visit to Cape town, and was recommended the Table Bay by the Travel agent. We chose to upgrade our room to the the mountain view room, which overlooked the harbour as well as the table mountain. The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast which was included in our package was great. The hotel was close to the V&A... More

We enjoyed our fist visit to Cape Town and chose the Table Bay because of its proximity to the V&A Waterfront. We asked for and enjoyed the Mountain View room looking out at the the inner harbor and famous Table Mountain. Bountiful breakfast in lovely, light and bright dining room (included in our rate) was a highlight and started our... More

The staff here make you feel welcome and comfortable. The afternoon tea is a must. Location is right in the heart of the V&A and couldn't be better placed. Rooms are very comfortable and the beds and sheets are lovely. We had a great stay for my girlfriends 40th Birthday and she even got a cake delivered to the room....

We visit the table bay at least twice a year The location on the waterfront is great and if you upgrade to a luxury room with a balcony you feel part of the harbour with the mountain as a backdrop The standard rooms in my opinion is to small and not what you would expect as 5 star The service...

We had an absolutely great time at the Table Bay Hotel. The location is unmatched on the V&A Waterfront. The rooms and furnishings are all fantastic. The breakfast buffet is one of the best we have ever had.

As the byline would have it - Best address in Town. Service is Outstanding! The view of Table Mountain is picture perfect. Great breakfast in the Atlantic room. The V&A as a location is awesome. The hotel however needs a bit of attention - is a bit tired and run down. Rather sad that such a great hotel is not... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at the Table Bay hotel this past weekend. After seeing the reviews on trip advisor prior to the weekend I was a bit neutral about the service we will get and prepared myself mentally to not expect too much from the frontline service as most of the reviews stated that. I phoned in... More

Lovely room with a view of the mountain and harbour. Breakfast overlooking the working harbour and mountain was something special. The conference facilities were not that great but I don't know if that is the hotels responsibility. It is very convenient next to the V&A mall.

Table Bay Hotel is one of the most beautiful Hotels I've ever had the pleasure of staying. And located in a city that took my breath away. The hotel flower arrangements and especially the Proteas were magnificent! We had an Ocean facing room. Ask for one of the higher floors for the most optimal view. The staff was extremely helpful...
