A wonderful hotel to discover Capetown, attentive and friendly hotel staff, even without mentioning I found a bottle of champagne in our room for my birthday!! Great service and attention! Wonderful views from our room - excellent restaurant too, and a sumptuous breakfast buffet. We'll be back one day!

A wrong booking from the travel agent left us initially out of a planned family holiday in Sun City. Fortunately we could get 4 rooms in this hotel and enjoyed our few days at the Waterfront. The breakfast is out of this world! Excellent! Rooms were good too. The pool could be better. Too much sun and too little shade....

A very welcoming and professional hotel in a great location with stunning views of Table Mountain. Do visit the stylish pool area and have breakfast on the terrace outside. Service overall was good but could be better for this class of hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Shopping and excellent restaurants are attached to the hotel. Very relaxed way to experience the best of Cape Town. Service was overall excellent except for one incident, which was quickly sorted out.

We stayed at the Table Bay Hotel for several days before leaving on a transatlantic cruise. The hotel is in a great location, right in the center of the V&A waterfront with great shopping, and a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment options.
