Table Bay hotel is a great base for a trip to the Cape especially if your business trip spans a weekend. Service is excellent. The food in the brasserie is perfect for a light meal and you couldn't want more choice at breakfast,. I've stayed a number of times and always found the staff very keen to please and unobtrusive....

This review is based on the Table Bay promoting itself as a 5 star & one of 'The Leading Hotels in the World'. My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in a mountain facing room. Parking was easy, and on arrival check-in was swift and efficient and we were in our room within 10 minutes. During check-in we were... More

I love this hotel! The rooms are ample and luxurious and the service is exquisite. But I am most impressed by the sumptuous breakfasts. There really is everything one could ever want for breakfast and then some. I haven't eaten at any of the other restaurants, but expect that they will also be terrific. The location, on the Victoria and... More

The Hotel is in a great position on the Waterfront in Cape Town so is in easy access to some great restaurants and also the shops. The Hotel is large but it does not have that anonymous feeling often found in big hotels. The room I had was very comfortable and well equipped with views over looking the ocean. The... More

When traveling in South Africa for pleasure I make it a point to never stay in a hotel. The country's myriad of B&B and guest houses make it utterly pointless. However, there are a few hotels that are at least interesting to walk through, to have drinks, or are situated so conveniently that they can pull me away from the... More

We stayed at this magnificent hotel with a tour group. It has everything you need and more. The location is fabulous, the rooms are great and breakfast is absolute spectacular. We have eaten in many hotels, but there is an amazing array of food in the buffet! Oysters, salmon, Asian, Italian and everything else you can imagine! The staff were... More

Great location, attentive and resourceful staff, great food, well-appointed and spacious rooms. Security is not just an afterthought. This hotel takes security seriously. Definitely a return stay is in order. Remember to book excursions in advance, even in the winter months.

Let me say the hotel is absolutely excellent. The room, the environment, the service. Everything perfect. But! I booked a family room that was supposed (according to the hotel) to host my wife, my 2 kids (11 and 12 yo) and myself. The room we were given had a small, old sofa that could not host the kids. Simply a... More

Thank you Table Bay Hotel for such a lovely weekend. You sure made my wife's birthday a memorable one. The cake, flowers and champagne you arranged for free were amazing. The breakfast absolutely perfect. The best location in Cape Town indeed.

while this hotel is in an excelent position and the food and service is of the same standard this cannot be said of the bedroom we occupied. The room requires attention with the shower leaking ans you could not turn off the TV. Thanks for thick towels
