“Fabulous service in Cape Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Celebrated many special occasions at the Table Bay Hotel and every time I return I am impressed again by the outstanding service; staff are professional attentive, and the comfortable rooms are equaled only by the view of the harbour and Cape Town surrounds.

This was my first visit to South Africa and I thank the staff of the Table Bay for making it one of this most memorable stays of my life! The staff was superb – the bar staff stayed open late to accommodate my colleagues and I following a very long flight from America. The staff also provided good tips for tours and things to do. The hotel is linked to a mall, with great shops and great dining options. Security is tight but not suffocating and I felt very safe for the duration of the visit. The breakfast buffet rivals that of any cruise ship you may have been on. The room was very comfortable, quiet, and clean – and the views if you get a Table Mountain side view – can be breathtaking as long as the fog doesn’t ruin it…
I can’t recommend this hotel enough – give the Table Bay a chance and you won’t be disappointed!

Room Tip: Ask for a marina facing room with view of Table Mountain...

Stayed for 2 nights with my daughter and her 9 month old baby. The hotel was excellent from the moment we checked in to when we checked out. Staff were extremely friendly and only too happy to help whenever needed. The room was very clean and comfortable - loved the Molten Brown toiletries in the bathroom! Breakfast was very good, plenty to eat. We also enjoyed the High Tea, lots of scrumptious goodies to eat and different teas to try. Heaven! Wished we could have stayed longer.

This hotel is in a prime location near the waterfront with views of the open water, the marina, and Table Mountain. The facility is gorgeous and the staff was very friendly and helpful. One of the restaurants was under renovation while we were there, but our meals in the Atlantic Room were top notch. High tea is a must do!

the hotel is lucky to be in a prime position , in the waterfront , service in the breakfast room is terrible , staff is noisy , food is not always fresh , lots of variety but not good quality .
the room cleaning is so so , we had a fresh rose for 10 days unchanged , and some lamp was gone nobody notice it . the frame lamp on top of the picture frame was broken .....
like everywhere in south africa , all look beautiful but service is not there .. and they charge european price .

Room Tip: dont choose room at the end of the corridor you will have the noise of the service lift the all nigh...

This is a truly 5 star hotel. The staff is wonderful. If you are jet lagged from a long flight this is a great place to recover. Linens are first rate. Food is excellent. High tea was wonderful. Every room has a view.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.

I was on vacation in Cape Town. The Table Bay Hotel was excellent in every aspect. The people could not have been nicer. The location was excellent. You could walk inside to the Victoria Wharf shops and restaurants. The rooms were immaculate. The High Tea was exceptional. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms have a nice view. Also you need a room key to access the elevator. Very saf...
