This hotel is very overpriced. Location is good at the waterfront, breakfast selection is huge, rooms are quite small but comfortable but for the price of $400 a night you should expect better value. Service and staff are not good, very slow and not efficient which was very disappointing, especially at the reception. When you order white toast at breakfast,... More

This was our third stay at the table bay and I am always amazed at how good this hotel is. The service, the staff, the resturants, the rooms oh and that location on the waterfront over looking Robin Island and Table Mountain to the rear make this one of the worlds best hotel locations. Connected to the shopping mall on... More

This is a very pleasant hotel in an excellent location. Our room was excellent with beautiful views and a very comfortable bed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were some of the best we had. It was great to be able to walk from the hotel and be surrounded by restaurants, things of interest and shops.

My husband and I stayed at the Table Bay Hotel for 5 nights. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. The room was nice and comfortable with a great view. The bed was so comfortable we found ourselves falling asleep much earlier than usual. The breakfast buffet was hands down the best breakfast I've ever had at... More

Table Bay is an ideal location. Walk to the waterfront, views of table mountain, and access to everything. The morning buffet is 5 star 5 diamond. The service is excellent. If you are lucky enough to have Shirley take care of you will never forget her loving care. The food was delicious and the choices were varied and international. The... More

The hotel is adjacent (perhaps part of) the Victoria and Alfred centre. There is a direct route from the interior of the hotel to the Victoria Mall and the rear exits onto the rest of the centre with its many pubs, restaurants and shopping facilities. The front rooms face the sea and the rear ones (probably more expensive!) face Table... More

We decided to stop over for lunch in the restaurant in the reception area. Our hostess Loraine is certainly a huge asset to this hotel as her level of service surpasses most of the best service I have ever received. She made us feel special and catered to all of our requests. What a special lady. Thank you Loraine for... More

We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights in total and had a wonderful stay. We had booked a suite and it definitely lives up to our expectations. The room itself had a large bedroom with a walk in wardrobe and a sitting room also with a wardrobe, both rooms had a fabulous view of Table Mountain. The bathroom was... More
