Taj is always a Gold standard in every aspect of hospitality. Starting from the front desk to the house keeping staff, everyone makes you feel at home. At Cape Town, it is really the finest. Extremely polite well behaved staff and welcoming at all times. The breakfast is amazing and a real well spread. Rooms are so comfortable and spacious that it is actually a home away from home. Some of the Staff there are amazingly helpful. Will definitely be there again.

It seems to us that the Taj Cape Town is a real bargain. It has a prime location, excellent service and good food. Breakfasts, in particular, are great, with a wide variety of high quality options. A suite with a view of Table Mountain cost noticeably less than single rooms at hotels that appear to have similar views and amenities. People have complained that the rooms are run down; we did not find that to be the case. You can also read complaints that the Taj is not a 5 star property, but the Taj is not charging anywhere near what the high end properties charge in Cape Town.

From the moment we were greeted by Rita at reception, to the waiters in the breakfast area and finally by the valet when leaving - we felt welcome and warm from the caring and happy attitude of the staff! Would definitely consider returning in the future.

Spent 4 nights here for the beginning of our honeymoon and it was wonderful! Staff is super welcoming and kind, room was amazing and cannot fault anything! The afternoon tea is excellent, canapés wonderful and the breakfast is outstanding! It’s only 10 mins drive to the waterfront and table mountain, so it’s in a great location. Strongly recommend!
