This ideally located hotel within the V&A Waterfront Complex in Cape Town is regarded as THE hotel in Cape Town. We would tend to agree - and once in our well appointed room overlooking the Harbour and Bay we enjoyed our 11 hour stay here before checking out at 05.00 hrs next morning. We were in room 359 on the...

If you have to choose one hotel for your stay in Cape Town, this is the one. The check-in experience is quick and seamless. The room was clean, well-appointed, and quiet. The hotel attaches to the mall for all the shopping you could ask for. The views of the mountain and the bay are priceless. The breakfast alone is worth...

This is a fabulous hotel with a perfect location on the Waterfront of Cape Town. It is connected to an upscale mall with all the shopping and services one could possibly need including a slew of very good restaurant. The rooms either have ocean views toward Robben Island or Table Mountain views. Both are spectacular! The service is excellent and...

We weren't impressed at all by this hotel. Check in was not straightforward. We had to pay for an 'upgrade' unexpectedly and our room was not, apparently, high on housekeeping's agenda! We had to phone to request the turn down service which seemed to come as a surprise to them, it wasn't made up at 3.00pm one day and the...

We have just returned from a lovely 5 night stay in the Table Bay hotel. We had requested inter-connecting rooms for our family which was not guaranteed on booking but they advised prior to travelling they would do their best to accommodate the family. We did get allocated inter-connecting rooms which were lovely. Both rooms had amazing views of Table...

The hotel on a whole is stunning, the staff are extremely pleasant, for an exception of the restaurant staff, they are rude and seem confused or maybe it was because we were young.For a 5* hotel, my toilet was a disgrace, the pan kept on moving everytime you sat, our shower taps had moss growing around the tap and the...
