The service is excellent with smiles and offers of help. As to the rooms they are large with 100% comfort. There is a fantastic tea time there with an impressive variety of pastries. For a return trip it would be difficult to choose any other hotel.

What a beautiful hotel! Excellent friendly service, beautifully appointed rooms even had fresh flowers in the bathroom! Breakfast in the dining room was amazing, so much to select from. The hotel is in a great location, an easy walk to the waterfront with lots of security...would love to have stayed longer. Highly recommend a stay at The Table Bay Hotel.

Lovely hotel situated in the V&A docks with wonderful views of table mountain. service was exceptional and all the staff were extremely pleasant. The room we stayed in was very clean and spacious.

Stayed here as part of a group over New Year and the first week of January. Had visited the hotel before but this was our first stay. First impressions were very good, an easy well organised checkin, rooms ready relatively quickly, and we liked the layout of the room with a large and very confortable bed and a large bath....

This is a beautiful hotel located on the waterfront in lovely Cape Town. Their breakfast buffet was exceptional. Rooms come with amazing views of either the waterfront and Table Mountain or the ocean. The Concierge, Yazeed, was so accommodating and handled anything we asked of him. The room was lovely and clean and I loved the bathroom. Can't say enough...
