This hotel is perfectly situated right next to the V&A Waterfront. It has an entrance leading directly into the waterfront. With its location you have access to a host of good restaurants and the usual food franchises. The room was nice and spacious and had excellent views of Table Mountain. There was a wide variety at the breakfast buffet. A...

Table Bay has once again impressed us with its great service and hospitality. We stayed for one evening to celebrate our 9th Wedding Anniversary. Check in was quick and pleasant. You are welcomed by friendly staff. Rooms are well maintained and the turn down was done promptly. You also get a luxurious pair of slippers. We were also given a...

The Table Bay Hotel is a 5-star hotel with a 10-star staff. My wife and I enjoyed a 5 night stay at this hotel. The waterfront location was perfect. Lots of things to do with plenty of great restaurants. Our wonderful room had a gorgeous ocean view. The hotel is also attached to a fairly new mall. The location is...

I had a highly disappointing stay at this hotel. I was charged for the shuttle service to the One & Only Hotel where my son was getting married, and they did not even have a return service available. The breakfast was highly disappointing, and the service poor. The rooms are mediocre for a hotel of this star rating. They wanted...

This is a beautiful hotel, located on the beach front. Easy access to the V & A Waterfront and the surrounding places. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, security is very tight. As a patron you feel secure. The only disappointing is the breakfast, not a lot of variety and the staff still has some polish up to do, including...

This is my hotel of choice in Cape Town. I have stayed at The One & Only, Twelve Apostles, The Westin, The Place on The Bay and they all pale in comparison. The hotel is very conveniently located being attached to The V&A Waterfront. I stayed with my family from the 10th to 13th December 2015. Being a LHW member...

This was our first visit to Cape Town and we were spending 3 nights in Cape Town before the start of a cruise. The hotel is in a fantastic location within walking distance of all the V&A waterfront has to offer. There were lots of restaurants located near the hotel. In fact, the hotel is connected to the shopping mall....

We only stayed one night, our last, in Capetown, but what a wonderful experience. Everything excellent, room spacious with wonderful views of Table Mountain and the Harbour. Very extensive brunch buffet with attentive service in the am. A very pleasant way to say bye bye to Capetown, for now.
