We had four nights at the Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town which was the second destination of our two destination Saga package. The hotel fronts onto Table Bay and backs onto the waterfront with a wonderful view of Table Mountain. The back entrance also gives access to the many restaurants and bars. The large adjacent shopping mall can be...

We stayed for a week in February 2017 and was impressed immediately by the ambiance and staff on our arrival. Our room was a superior family for just the two of us and was more than ample space. The bathroom was a little smaller than comparatively 5 star hotels but didn't detract from our stay. The facilities which we used...

We booked a superior room with a balcony and views across the water to Table Mountain. The hotel has a fantastic buffet for breakfast and also do egg dishes to order. They offer a free shuttle bus to the city centre and Table Mountain on first come first served basis. For those who want to shop the hotel has direct...

Walking on the waterfront we took the opportunity to have a drink at the Table Bay hotel outside terrace overlooking table mountain. Friendly staff and nice time. We decided to go to their restaurant as the hotel looked very good. The food and service were both very good. But the challenge we had is that, we've first ordered a bottle...

Great location, lovely hotel near the waterfront and overlookimg table mountain. Escallator takes you straight into the malls. Good breakfast. Only thing we were disappointed in was the service in the bar at nights. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting cape town.

This hotel has a great location. The public areas are light and spacious and our bedroom was very comfortable with a beautiful view of the sea and Robben Island. The breakfast is one of the best we have experienced. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the concierge booked restaurants and organised cars for us. Could not speak more...

Our cruise ship provided this hotel for pre and post-cruise stays. The hotel is upscale, and in a fabulous location. The rooms were spacious, modern, and clean. Our pre-cruise room provided a lovely view of the water, while the post-cruise room had a wonderful view of the harbor and Table Mountain. We ate one breakfast there, an expansive buffet with...

We had five nights here at the start of our African holiday and it was a great introduction to Africa. The hotel fronts onto Table Bay and backs onto the F&A Waterfront. It also has internal access to the shopping mall with its restaurants and shops. The public rooms were elegant and beautifully appointed, the breakfast choices were vast with...

Was really excited after reading the reviews however, I thought it was dated and need a facelift. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment too, although there was a huge variety, I thought the staff were rude, couldn't be bothered and very rarely did they get your order right. The beds however were wonderful, as was the bedding. There...
