This is a beautiful hotel located on the waterfront in lovely Cape Town. Their breakfast buffet was exceptional. Rooms come with amazing views of either the waterfront and Table Mountain or the ocean. The Concierge, Yazeed, was so accommodating and handled anything we asked of him. The room was lovely and clean and I loved the bathroom. Can't say enough...

We spent two lovely nights at Table Bay at the end of our mini tour in a lovely room overlooking Table Mountain & the Waterfront. After the small hotels that we had been staying in, life here was a bit hectic but everything seemed to work. The hotel is a few years old but is in excellent condition. Breakfast was...

Great location on the waterfront so easily walkable to restaurants, bars, the terminal for Robben Island, the aquarium and city bus tours. For it's location the rooms are quiet and comfortable. The communal areas are old fashioned but in a nice way - cosy and welcoming. The outside eating/bar areas are pretty unusual for around the waterfront and a real...

This was the last of three hotels that we stayed in during our holiday in and around Cape Town. Our stay was for two nights and I would certainly say that the location of the hotel is idea as it is an integral part of the V&A area so ideal for shops, restaurants and access for open top bus etc....

Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor, our location does provide the best access to V&A Waterfront. I have forwarded your feedback to our Housekeeping Department and assure you this not the acceptable standard of response. We hope you will visit us again so we can create a memorable experience for you and your family.

We only stayed here for one night before moving to the Twelve Apostles which had limited availability and could not accommodate us for the full trip. To be honest I had no expectations of this hotel, it was merely a place to crash before our much needed holiday began. The hotel is large and stately, looking a bit tired interior...

This is a very comfortable secure hotel in a fantastic location. Room was great. Bathroom sumptuous. Nice rooftop pool area. Used services at spa . Staff very good there.
