“Just as a five-star international hotel should be”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

This facility certainly isn't Africa. But it is one of the finest international hotels with a beautiful location in the middle of the shopping centers on the waterfront. Enjoyed the artwork and the paintings. Don't miss the afternoon High Tea.

We spent 4 nights at the Table Bay hotel right on the Victoria and Alfred waterfront. The view of Table mountain was amazing and shopping and restaurants were close by. The breakfast buffet was the most extensive I have ever experienced although it was sometimes difficult to get a table in the Atlantic Grill. The High Tea was also excellent. The hotel arranged a trip for us to Cape of Good Hope and the staff were always helpful. We were less excited by the one dinner at the Hotel as the description of the food was better than the taste.

Recently stayed here for 6 days. The hotel rooms are lovely and give a extra special
touch however do not ask for anything in addition like ice because it just does not happen. Buffet breakfast is large, food ok, the service in this area needs lots of help.
The staff tends to spend a lot of time talking amoungst themselves. Takes a long while to get your coffee or meals if you order something from the kitchen. Found it amazing that it appeared the supervisors in the room also engaged in joking and talking with staff and not paying much attention to customers! Service needs lots of attention in the
dining areas.
The hotel is beautiful with an ideal location on the waterfront. Many restaurants within walking distance.
We had a nice view from room overlooking table bay. If you looked down you viewed a roof not to attractive but was overlooked.

Room Tip: We looked over table bay and it was very nice

Beautiful hotel ideally located at the V&A Waterfront. Highly recommend their breakfasts too!! We received an upgraded room overlooking the ocean. The service is friendly who makes one feel like royalty whilst staying there.
From the waterfront hop on and off buses can be taken for tours in and around Cape Town.

Excellent experience....we were treated like royalty! Very romantic ;) It is connected to a mall with plenty of shopping. Easy access to the shops and restaurant along the water. There is a huge variety of things to do within walking distance, and many excursions are offered straight from or near the hotel. Breakfast and lunch buffets had plenty to choose from and was wonderful. We loved it and would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the water, higher than the 2nd floor. The view is breath taking.

For a world class place to stay, with exceptionally tight security, you couldn't do better than Table Bay Hotel. While not entirely immune from African "features" (like finding someone else's suitcase delivered to my room, or leaving an envelope with the concierge for someone to come pick up, which was then delivered to my room) but the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The location (on V & A Waterfront) is premier. The views are outstanding (although that's true nearly everywhere in Cape Town.). I can recommend Table Bay.
