“Good business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

I stayed at Table Bay for a business meeting. The location is on the harbor. My room was on the back side facing Table Mountain and the working harbor, a lovely view. The location is good for getting the ferry to Robben Island and the cable car to Table Mountain. The room had its own terrace. The hotel is very well built, so if the glass doors to the terrace are closed, it is very quiet. The room was large, as was the bathroom, and well appointed with lovely cotton sheets and a good bed and a nice desk. The wireless was a bit of a hassle, but did work. The staff was very attentive and could not have been more helpful. The hotel has its own car service with excellent drivers. The food for our business lunches was just okay, but the people in Room Service tried very hard to accommodate my wish for fresh vegetables and fruit. The hotel connects directly to a "private" upscale mall that is vast. It includes many well known chains and designers, but also has some local stores like Lorenzi's which has beautiful, high quality leather goods.

last October, we spent 4 nights at this hotel and it was perfect. It has everything that you expect from a 5 star hotel. Where it is located is also the best place to stay in Cape Town; day or night, you can access everything you need ( restaurants, shopping, Hop on Hop off bus lines, boat trips ,etc) by a short walking distance.

Room Tip: they are all good!!

I would reiterate all the positive things other reviewers have said about this great hotel. We stayed here for three days after a long grueling tour of SA and this was a perfect treat before our return to UK. Our room overlooked the harbour and Table Mountain, and contained all the facilities one would expect from a 5 star hotel. Staff were courteous and helpful, and I felt very well looked after. The spa staff were very professional and it was easy to get an appointment for hair and nails on the same afternoon. Well done!
The hotel opens into the shopping arcade and the Waterfront, leaving great opportunities for "doing your own thing" at night, or for exploring during the day. Lots of local restaurants nearby serving great food....
The breakfast buffet is to die for, and stretches for "miles"..... I just wonder what they do with the waste food at the end of the day..... there was a huge amount available!
I would certainly like to stay here again on my next trip to SA.

Room Tip: On the higher floors at the back overlooking the Harbour and Table Mountain.

you couldn't be more central on the Waterfront, which is very buzzy, enjoyable, good atmosphere, great restaurants... Table Bay very good, excellent service, functional...everything works...maybe just missing a bit of "magic"! Pool (food and drink) was good

Room Tip: all quite similar...maybe Waterfront/Table Mountain view

Table bay is a beautifully located property with good rooms, and great people. Harbour, v and a waterfront, Victoria wharf are the neighbours. Good concierge, great jacuzzi and awesome view from the room.

Except a water leak and a non working lamp in the bedroom, the place is nice clean and comfortable. Views are amazing. The connection to the mall is also really convenient. Had a quick dinner in the lounge who was really memorable with a superb view on the waterfront and table mount.
