The Table Bay Hotel
Ranked #17 of 110 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 8 December 2011

This hotel is fabulous - the location is perfect right on the water front, with views on either side of the hotel taking in either the bay and Robben Island, or Table Mountain behind. The lobby is spacious and grand, the breakfast buffet simply incredible and the bar great for chilling out. the rooms are large and luxurious with extremely comfortable beds. The service is second to none. Simply cannot fault this hotel. Possibley the only tiny downside is a relatively small gym with treadmills that need oiling - but really not an issue!!

Probably my 10th visit to the Table Bay for after-noon tea but my first trip-advisor review.

Our last visit laid an egg on us and was'nt so great in terms of service.

But this visit was fantastic just what we felt like on a windy day in the Cape.

My wife and I ordered toasted cheese sandwiches. They where excellent and came with skinny fries and a small salad.

The selection of cakes is also brilliant. We finished off with a small plate of four cakes.

Definately a good destination for after-noon-tea in Cape Town

Stayed here on business/leisure for two nights. We had a large, spacious room with a balcony overlooking the harbour and mountain. Everything was very well appointed and beats hands down anything inhave experienced in the USA or Europe excepting for 5 star suite hotels which cost way more. The decor in the main lobbies is grand, harkening back to a previous era whilst the rooms are modern and spacious.

You cannot beat the location and the breakfasts are to die for. The variety is expansive and the setting relaxed. Don't rush the occasion if possible.

At every point staff went out of their way to be friendly, helpful and professional. This was valid from floor service staff through to the porters and the management.

Situated right on the V&A Waterfront, there is immediate access to world class dining, shopping, entertainment and everything else the mother city has to offer. Sure there are probably other better value offers in Cape Town, but if you are travelling on Dollars or Euros, splash out. You won't get anything similar back home at the price, and you will leave rested and with a contented smile.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room facing the mountain if one is available.

Stayed at the Table Bay for a few nights on business. Nice hotel, but on balance, it's overpriced and overrated.

The hotel has a beautiful view of the V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain, the room was well appointed, and the service was truly exceptional. But you can get a similar experience at the Queen Victoria or the V&A for a fraction of the price.

the location of the hotel is just fabulous... you can see the mountain, the port ,and most important the waterfront... Once you enter it , you will feel as if you're entering into Richie Rich's mansion... The rooms are spacious, but the bathrooms are kind of outdated... Breakfast choices are exquisite!I have sent a wonderful time there, and since I have been there for my honeymoon, one night we came back to the room and they have prepared it for us in such a romantic way, with flower petals over the bed, and filled up wam bubble bath with flower petals and a bottle of wine.....

Room Tip: a waterfront view on the upper levels

Stayed here for business for three nights. The positives: Great view of table mountain and the waterfront; good location; nice shopping mall attached; areas to walk and stroll along the water; clean and comfortable rooms; attentive service. The drawbacks: very expensive; a bit stuffy for my taste; restaurant was very elegant, but food was just average.

Overall, I can't really complain about this hotel in terms of service or quality. I guess I just didn't really like the old-fashioned vibe of the place. To me it seemed like it was kind of living in the past and trying too hard to be old world elegance. I will say that the transportation and drivers that we booked through the hotel were excellent.
