this is a top-notch hotel for many good reasons. the service is amazing; we had nothing but smiles and kindness throughout our stay. the location is great. yes it is a bit out of the way, but the views are killer and the attached shopping center and local V&A area are safe and fun. breakfast buffets were ridiculous (in all...

This hotel is in a great location but I was let down in a number of areas. Firstly the wifi was very very slow which was a problem as I was on a business trip and battled to open documents. The shower temperature went from boiling hot to cold every few seconds which was extremely irritating and uncomfortable . I...

The grande dame of the V&A Waterfront, the Table Bay needs no introduction; nonetheless, my husband and I bypassed it a couple of times for smaller neighbouring hotels before finally checking in last month, and loved it so much that we were back for more a couple of weeks later. First of all, there’s its prime location in Cape Town’s...

The Table Bay Hotel is ideally situated in the V&A waterfront, you can choose for views of Table mountain or the bay, we had the bay. All the staff are very friendly and really look after you. We had a sofa bed in our room for our 9 year old which was fine for our 3 night stay, views over...

The hotel and its staff are outstanding in every way. Hotel rooms are large and well equipped. The location is excellent. I can't fault the hotel in any way. The hotel pool on the roof is just bliss. We arrived early from our flight, an early check in wasn't available, so we spent the hours waiting for our room by...

I visited this hotel for the first time last week to meet a friend for coffee. I was greeted by very friendly parking attendants and once inside this beautiful hotel the friendliness and service didn't stop. Very elegant surroundings, delicious coffee, eats and treats and then also a hop skip and jump to the Waterfront shops. I will definitely be...

In order for one to appreciate why Cape Town is voted as the no 1 tourist destination, the location of this hotel will justify. With stunning mountain and sea views and direct access to the busiest Waterfront in the world, you can't go wrong. The fantastic service by the Duty Manager Rodrick does not go unnoticed by both guests and...

Don't even know where to start. Perfect location, amazing view, perfect staff, perfect service, just absolutely perfect. The V&A Waterfront is a top tourist destination in Cape Town and includes the Victoria Wharf complex, the most famous shopping mall in CT. The Table Bay is right in the centre of the Waterfront; you simply walk out the door and all...

This a return trip for us to the Table Bay Hotel. We last stayed here 8 years ago. It is good to see that it's standard has remained so consistently high. Just one negative comment. The breakfasts are no where near as good as they were 8 years ago. We gave up having a cooked breakfast as they were all...

The hotel is in a great spot, attached to a mall and the waterfront. There were many great restaurants that we could walk to. The service was exceptional. The breakfast buffet was great! Our adjoining rooms were large and beautiful. We would stay here again.
