We stay there only for one (1) night, and we got a room with large floor-ceiling windows with a view to TableMountain, LionsHead and SignalHill in one window, and sealions, fishingboats in the other window. Had a bottle of local sparkling wine (as good as Champagne) as the sun set down below Signal Hill. The best time for breakfast is... More

In the past 7 years I have stayed at 4 different hotels in Cape Town. My only regret is that Table Bay was not my first choice back then. A few weeks ago I spent 4 nights at this amazing hotel. A special check in for our group was set up and it was smooth and efficient. My room was... More

What an amazing place this, one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Our comfortable and spacious room had a beautiful view over Table Bay. The large lounge area has huge windows with a view of Table Mountain. The legendary breakfast bar has to be seen to be believed. The staff fall over themselves to be helpful, and if... More

The Table Bay Hotel well deserves its 5 star status - it could not be faulted. We had magnificent views of the harbour and Table Mountain and from the other window, the Atlantic. The staff were extremely efficient, friendly and very smart. The food was excellent and the dining room and lounge were spacious and comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the... More

All good at Table Bay Hotel. Fantastic situation for the restaurants, shops and entertainment on the V & A waterfront. It was clean, the room spacious even for our family of four, and the branded toiletries in the bathroom were lovely. There was welcome packs for our children, and daily bottles of water, sweets and other thoughtful touches. Plenty of... More

Spent the last few nights of our trip here earlier in October. We were part of a large group and we're told that lots of groups stay here but it never felt crowded and there were plenty of small groups and couples too. Set on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront our room looked out on Table Mountain and the harbour.... More

Our final stop in our 19 day tour of SA was 3 nights in this fantastic city, in this fantastic hotel, with a room with a view across the waterfront to Table Mountain which apart from a few wisps on our first morning was completely free of cloud. We couldn't ask for more. The public areas are very grand but... More
