“Stunning views, gracious service”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

I spent eight nights in this glorious hotel right on the Harbor in Cape Town. It is luxury at its best. The rooms are well appointed, the bar is friendly and very accomodating and waking up every morning to a view of Table Mountain was breathtaking. This rates as my number one hotel that I have stayed in EVER; and Cape Town is one of my top two destinations in the world. I can't wait to get back and enjoy a little more Cape hospitality.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Bay and Table Mountain are the most scenic.

We recently stayed here for 4 nights to end our safari experience in Zambia. We flew down to visit Cape Town to do a little wine tasting and sightseeing. The hotel was very nice and everyone very hospitable. Our room looked out on Table Mountain and the water which was beautiful. Breakfast has everything you could want plus. Check in was quick and easy with bags arriving in room quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

We stayed at the Table Bay hotel for 4 nights. The accommodations were very nice, we had a great view of Table Mountain. Each room has a safe in it and free wifi although it was a bit slow. The people were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was as advertised - extensive. This was definitely a 5 star hotel but what really made it stand out was the location. The spot on the waterfront with so many restaurants to choose from was ideal. i really can't come up with anything negative to say. I highly recommend it.

Well probably one of my favorite destinations in the world. For sure the place to stay in Cape Town. Can't wait to go back. Can not think of one negative point. Great rooms, service, location etc. Only down side is the small pool. For families looking for a swim with kids, maybe not the best choice. But if you are not looking for a big pool - this is the place to be!

My husband and I stayed at table bay Hotel from August 21-August 25 and the experience was wonderful. The hotel is elegant with marble, pale victorian colors, huge, high lobby, High Tea and sitting area with stunning views of Table Mountain. The front desk checked us in with no wait time, the room was a corner room overlooking the waterfront on all sides! The room was huge with a sitting area and huge bathroom. Everything was sparkling! All the help was very polite and took time to talk to you.

One of the most amazing parts was the breakfast buffet! Tables and tables of food for all palettes and cultures..including a carving station!

This was the nicest hotel that we ever stayed at. It is safe, convenient to everything. A supberb hotel!

Room Tip: 641 is a corner room with tall windows and amazing view!

We stayed at the Table Bay Hotel between 26th and 31st August and the experience was wonderful. Most ideal location on the waterfront. Ask for the family rooms...they come with a balcony. Its just fantastic. The hotel is attached to the mall which makes its location ideal. Few things one must definitely do....1 High Tea 2. Spa 3. The awesome breakfast. Great place for families,.

What a fantastic hotel - from the check in (where they give you a hot towel and soft drink of your choice), to the check out. The staff go out of their way to make you stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are very clean and the bed is super comfortable. The location of the hotel is fantastic - right on the waterfront, and linked to the V and A mall (which is huge!). The breakfast buffet is out of this world ... I could go on forever about how fantastic this hotel is. I would definitely stay here again.
