We recently spent four nights at the Table Bay Hotel, chosen mainly for its superb location on the V&A Waterfront. The room was very nice with a very comfortable bed and luxurious bed linen, plenty of hanging and drawer space and a fantastic view of Table Mountain. However, the carpet had obviously not been vacuumed as there were crumbs and...

The Table Bay Hotel is situated down on the Cape Town Waterfront. An easy walk to all the restaurants and facilities in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront area. The hotel is also attached to one of the shopping malls (which also has some nice eateries). I found all the staff to be extremely helpful and courteous. A lovely breakfast area...

This is a beautiful upmarket hotel. Five stars and at 5 star prices, but unfortunately some of the staff are sub par and appear to be poorly trained. We received a nice welcome on the forecourt and the very friendly concierge staff unpacked our luggage from the car and immediately offered valet parking. A very pleasant start to our visit....

My husband and I recently stayed 4 nights at Table Bay. We really loved the location, however the hotel itself has some serious flaws / personnel issues: - the shower only works properly if you shower outside of peak times. If you choose to shower morning or night (like the majority of guests), be expected to have a shower that...

This hotel is truly a five star experience. The staff are very professional and the facilities are of a quality. The bar has a good selection of whiskey and the breakfast is spectacular. It's situated adjacent to the V & A Waterfront with easy access from the hotel.

5 star hotel delivers a 5 star experience. The rooms are immaculate with stunning views. The food and service matches up as well. Perfectly located on the waterfront close to restaurants and shops. Although on the pricey side on things I higher recommend you push the budget if it allows. You won't be disappointed.

What is there not to like about the Table Bay Hotel? Nothing. It is excellent in every respect, first of all location, location, location, it does not get better than this. A magnificent view of Table Mountain and the harbor from our room was just the beginning. The hotel is in the V&A area so there are a multitude of...

We just spent an amazing week in Cape Town and booked this hotel at the recommendation of a colleague back in the UK. The location is perfect- 2 mins walk to countless excellent restaurants, cafes and bars but at night the rooms are quiet and cool due to decent windows and insulation. The service was second to none- I measure...
