This hotel is lovely. it is well situated right on the water front near trendy little shops and fabulous restaurants. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and the breakfast buffet is surreal. Live piano music at breakfast and in the evening was a lovely touch. The pool area seems small but we always found a chair and the staff...

5 star hotel within the V&A Waterfront so the perfect location for the attractions. The rooms were spacious and clean and the staff exemplary. We only had breakfasts here but they were first class. Excellent laundry service.

Stayed at Table Bay at the end of an escorted tour from Johannesburg to Cape Town. I can honestly say I can't fault the place. My room was on the 5th floor overlooking the harbour. The staff made me feel like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely touches like a fresh rose in the bathroom and nougat and fresh...

Disappointment! Table Bay, your location is your only asset! Your service is slow, you forget bar and food orders, your drivers are late, and even when the Reception staff try to accommodate special occasions, your colleagues let you down. Until your staff, your service and your location are in sync, the hotel is not worthy of so any stars. P.S....

My husband & I booked afternoon tea & we weren't disappointed! The hotel was absolutely stunning and the afternoon tea was to die for. There was the most amazing selection of cakes/desserts and all the ones we ate were beautiful.

What a position right on the waterfront! Rooms are lovely and spacious, breakfast was delicious with so much choice. The staff are all extremely helpful. There is a walkway through to the Shopping Centre and there are so many restaurants locally that one is spoilt for choice. We were there 6 nights and could have stayed much longer, it was...

Spent a week at The Table Bay Hotel. Went over to Cape Town to cycle the 40th Cape Town Cycle Tour. From the moment you arrive nothing is too much trouble. Everyone is so helpful. The rooms are big and has everything you need with great views. Great location on the V&A waterfront. At breakfast you get a vast choice,...

This is our first visit to South Africa and this hotel got us off to a brilliant start. We arrived in first thing in the morning (8am) and the hotel was great in trying to get a room ready as soon as possible we had asked for a room with a view of Table mountain and we were not disappointed....

An awesome hotel with the most amazing breakfast! The rooms are gorgeous as is the entire hotel it provides and delivers that extra special service and added "Glam". If you want to be spoilt this is the hotel for you. There are so many little extra surprises. The position on the V&A Waterfront is awesome!

Right on the water front and great views of the harbour as well as Table Mountain. I am normally a middle of the road to budget traveller but this time I saved a little more and splurged. This was an amazing hotel. The staff was superior, the rooms outstanding, food mind blowing and the hotel was walking distance to just...
