Stayed at the Taj CPT with my wife for five nights for a celebration of my 50th birthday! It's a great hotel with luxurious rooms. The whole building is very historic and very well maintained in its original form. The staff was courteous and very helpful with local advice. Breakfast was on order (no buffet due to coronavirus) and the Indian menu items were a total surprise plus delicious too. The location is great- the Red bus (HOHO) terminal on Long Street was walking distance and so were other facilities. The Taj had superb covid protocols in place and we left extremely satisfied.

We were staying at the Taj for 5 nights, we were supposed to stay 4 nights, but we loved it so much, so we extended it. We were staying in the one bedroom suite, which was spacious. room was clean and tidy, with amazing views of table mountain. Wi Fi signal was excellent. Breakfast was not a buffet (due to Covid), but the staff are doing their best to bring you anything you ask (even if its not on the breakfast menu). Afternoon tea is really nice experience, huge vareity of pastries and finger food, and you can also order it to the room. Gym and indoor pool are great, usually gyms are quite small, but they have a really good one. we have tried the spa, which was excellent as well. The service is top notch, from the reservation agent to the vallet parking, housekeeping, and breakfast room waiters. Would like to say special appriciation to Audine from reservation that really helped us with booking process (as we had to change the booking so many time because of Covid), Lee Anne from sales, that made sure we have anything we need, and Primrose - the breakfast waitress that always took care that we will eat :) highly recommended.

We were a family of five and stayed at Taj Cape Town for 3 nights. We had an outstanding experience and I really wished we could have stayed longer. The level of professionalism from from both Hotel Management and Staff is highly commendable. Dinner at the Bombay Brasserie was well prepared and presented however the time between courses was lengthy. Breakfast was ordered off a menu, plated, well presented and sufficient. There was a variety of fruit, fresh bakes, fresh breads provided at the table. Jiva Spa also exceeded my expectations, we enjoyed the heated pool and steam-room as well as relaxing massages. Thank you Taj Cape Town for your hospitality, we look forward to future stays.
