We had a fabulous 4 days at the Table Bay Hotel YET I come away very, very disappointed and shocked that no one and no where in the hotel was there any publicity of the severe water shortage Cape Town is suffering. As a tourist I had absolutely no idea that there even was dire water shortage. Apparently there are...

We were very fortunate to be able to use the spa facilities at the Table Bay Hotel. Thanks to Camilla who spoke to us on the phone and was very helpful in assisting us. We had the most amazing afternoon at the spa. The showers, sauna and pool area are all very well maintained and clean and the Africology products...

In the middle of the V&A Waterfront, this is a great hotel for sightseeing and getting about. The staff are all warm and friendly, welcoming you like a returning guest and always looking for ways to help you. The room - a king size ocean view - was spacious and well fitted out and, while the bathroom could have done...

Touristy location near many attractions, near the ferry dock for Robben Island, and convenient for Ubers to many other places. Comfortable big rooms with large windows overlooking Table Mountain for half the hotel. Palatial bathrooms Included breakfast served on terrace includes 5 million tempting choices including raw oysters, dried fish, all the "English Breakfast" foods, and lots of Asian stuff....

We stayed at Table Bay for a week in January, and thought it was great. The approach to the hotel from the front is really impressive and we were enthusiastically welcomed by the staff at the door, and shown to reception. Here things stumbled a little, for the first and only time. Check in is at 2pm, but we had...

I chose Table Bay because our cruise was initially set to depart from the nearby dock and convenience was a big factor. Our cruise was changed and so we needed to do a bag transfer. This review is not reflective of the location change but does indicate our experiences. Check In: We had 2 rooms as we arrived at 2...

Really enjoyed our stay here which took in the New Year celebrations. The breakfast is the most stunning array that I have ever seen and one could order literally anything from the kitchen in addition to the buffet. The hotel had great facilities with nice hints of an historic past. It has a good feel about it. As a travel...
