The hotel is adjacent (perhaps part of) the Victoria and Alfred centre. There is a direct route from the interior of the hotel to the Victoria Mall and the rear exits onto the rest of the centre with its many pubs, restaurants and shopping facilities. The front rooms face the sea and the rear ones (probably more expensive!) face Table...

We decided to stop over for lunch in the restaurant in the reception area. Our hostess Loraine is certainly a huge asset to this hotel as her level of service surpasses most of the best service I have ever received. She made us feel special and catered to all of our requests. What a special lady. Thank you Loraine for...

We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights in total and had a wonderful stay. We had booked a suite and it definitely lives up to our expectations. The room itself had a large bedroom with a walk in wardrobe and a sitting room also with a wardrobe, both rooms had a fabulous view of Table Mountain. The bathroom was...

We stayed at Table Bay for 5 nights at the end of October 2016. The cleanliness of the room was impeccable and the view (table mountain view room) was sensational. The location of the hotel within the waterfront was excellent and being attached to the mall meant you were in the heart of the waterfront as soon as you left...

We stayed at the Table Bay Hotel for 5 nights and had a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the sea. This hotel is stunning and has a wonderful vibe about it. It is right next to the V&A and has it's own exit straight into the mall from the hotel. The breakfast was plentiful but unfortunately the service at...

Luxury hotel at the waterfront. The very positive aspect is the position, very central in the waterfront and easily connected through the mall to the most of the restaurants! Is a 5 star hotel, however in the room there was a terrible smell of food... and it was clean but not really optimal. Overall a very good experience!

Attended a wedding in November. Staff were VERY unwilling to help and had very bad attitude! Service at the bar was shocking! Almost didn't want to ask for assistance. Liver pate served WITHOUT bread, beef steak served WELL DONE and not enough dessert buffet for all the guest. Pavlova meringue was FLAT! Asked for coffee 4 times and when it...

This must be one of the best hotels in the best locations in Cape Town. The Waterfront was absolutely pumping and the hotel is right there but shielded enough to feel remote. My room had a great view over the harbour with Table Mountain in the background.

This is a delightful hotel on the waterfront. The staff are amazing, friendly and helpful. We arrived at midnight on a Tuesday and the bar is open until 2am. Terrific bartenders - made me the best Old Fashioned cocktail in a pretty bar setting. Corner room with view of Table Mt. Very large and comfortable and I dove into the...

Our travel agent booked this hotel for us after our request to be in a convenient location. While we've been to Cape Town before, 8 years ago, it has changed so much. Moreover, crime has intensified in certain areas so we were looking for convenience and safety over price. We had no idea how exquisite this hotel was. It has...
