We stayed here recently at the front end of our golf and safari vacation. I can't say enough good things about this place. From the rose petals on the bed at turn down, to the breakfast buffet that included sushi, a juice room, a carving station, and a crepe maker, to the location next to the V&A Waterfront mall, this...

This was our second stay at this beautiful hotel. We had fond memories from our first stay here. The staff is excellent especially Gerswin, who is now a butler. As before he helped make our stay special. We were thrilled to see he had been promoted from wait staff to Butler. We love the wonderful breakfast served, the attention to...

Grand old lady. Great staff. Great room. Great view. Just all good. Furniture dated but classic, there is even a phone in the loo! Hilarious! Bar really nice, breakfast five star. It was the service that stood out for us. Worth the money.

Rooms were very nice. Great beds and pillows. The buffet at breakfast is amazing. There is a separate room with just fresh fruit juices. Located near Albert and Victoria Waterfront, which has lots of restaurants and shops. High tea in the lobby with lots of wonderful deserts. However, very disappointed in the Camissa Brasserie located in the hotel. Would not...

Beautiful appointed hotel in an enviable position in Cape Town. Made to feel special on arrival and all thro stay. Large bedroom with fantastic view over the bay. Bathroom with shower and bath,separate toilet. The most comprehensive buffet breakfast to satisfy all tastes. Cherry on the cake must be the direct access to shopping mall of Waterfront.

We stayed here for a couple of weeks last month and the overall experience was pretty good. It's in a good location with nice restaurants in the area. The pool area has a good vibe with really friendly staff who look after you. Rooms are big with good facilities. The hotel does hold conferences so if you don't want the...

We spent our 10th Anniversary at Table Bay hotel over the Easter Weekend. Check in was easy and pleasant even though we arrived abit early. Spent the afternoon having High tea in the Lounge which was delicious and plentiful we couldnt do justice to all the desserts. Supper at Camissa was delicious and service pleasant. Breakfast was to die for...

This ideally located hotel within the V&A Waterfront Complex in Cape Town is regarded as THE hotel in Cape Town. We would tend to agree - and once in our well appointed room overlooking the Harbour and Bay we enjoyed our 11 hour stay here before checking out at 05.00 hrs next morning. We were in room 359 on the...

If you have to choose one hotel for your stay in Cape Town, this is the one. The check-in experience is quick and seamless. The room was clean, well-appointed, and quiet. The hotel attaches to the mall for all the shopping you could ask for. The views of the mountain and the bay are priceless. The breakfast alone is worth...
