Stayed for 4 nights at table bay, good hotel with close proximity to water front. Hotel is within the shopping mall, ease in having variety of food. Its away from airport and city centre, but calm place to relax after business meeting and casual holidays.

The V&A Waterfront is one of the most visited locations in Cape Town and offers the most unique experience of a working harbour together with a retail space. It is certainly a place to visit and we look forward to your return to The Best Address is the Cape!

I love it. Classic, old fashion, best and largest breakfast in town Big rooms, good pool, best location ever Its a classic! More 5* hotels came to town with more luxurious deco and small in size, so more attention to details and service, but this is still a good choice!

A hotel with a huge breakfast; there was nearly everything. Service was very good. The hotel is with its own entrance to the main shopping area. The hotel has a very good restaurant but outside there are lots of good restaurants and shops, all within walking distance
