Everything about this hotel is brilliant from the location on the V&A Waterfront, rooms, staff, welcome, decor, food, safety & security etc. We really couldn't fault it. Breakfasts were particularly great. Never had...

Beautiful hotel in a great location. Our room had a balcony facing Table Mountain and luckily the weather was perfect during our stay. The rooms were very spacious and the service was excellent. Like others have stated, the breakfast is amazing with too many selections to list. Highly recommend.

The hotel is situated and dominates in many ways the waterfront with a very distinct blue roof. It is linked to the waterfront shopping mall and the restaurants in the mall and is really convenient to get onto the water front. Weekends are very busy with plenty of entertainment and places offering every type of cuisine imaginable. The staff work...

I had the great pleasure of staying for 5 nights at this Luxury-Plus hotel, opened by the late Pres. Mandella in 1997. To say it is magnificent in all areas is an understatement. From the moment you arrive at the entrance of the palm-tree lined driveway, you know you are going to be pampered and in for a great experience....

This is a lovely hotel having spent 5 nights there in August 2016. I wanted to call out Cronin Cherry who provided the most amazing customer experience by replacing a lost item for my son and shipping it to the UK. This was fantastic and went above and beyond my expectations. The hotel itself is very nice and is well...

We were booked into this hotel through a travel agency/tour. It was beyond our expectations. The rooms were lovely with incredible views.

The Table Bay Hotel is GRAND. There is nothing small or ordinary about it. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and afford stellar views of the water and Table Bay Mountain. The staff was professional and warm The breakfast, included with the room rate, was amazing...so much choice...so little time!
