The hotel staff were very charming and went out of their way to make you feel special. The hotel room was very nice but you need to know they do not have air conditioning so it can get warm and stuffy. Bring a personal fan and that will help a lot.

I recently hosted my induction as Kirstenbosch Lions Club at The Reserve at The Taj Cape town.. This is an amazing venue with so much of history. The banqueting team was amazing and the South Indian breakfast was just wow.

Great place to stay. We had a two bedroom two bathroom suite on the club floor which gave us access to the lounge for afternoon tea, evening drinks and canapés that were huge. Attentive staff. Pool a little small. City location by Greenmarket Square.

Everything was top notch. Icing on the cake was the dinner at the Campton Place restaurant - a delectable treat that brought a wide variety of familiar Indian dishes and flavors together brilliantly. Hats off to Chef S on receiving the second Michelin star.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Cape Town welcomes guests to the vibrant heart of the one of the world's most scenic and desirable cities, Cape Town. The hotel is a combination of rich history and elegant contemporary architectures. Originally home of the South African Reserve Bank and Temple Chambers and later the Board of Executors (BOE), it successfully combines the heritage of the old with the luxury of the new - a 100 years in history! This luxury hotel is perfectly located in the centre of historic Cape Town at the entrance of the famous pedestrian precinct, St George's Mall. It's prime location ensures a blend of fascinating history, exotic culture, soulful art, lively entertainment and delectable cuisine. - Within walking distance to most tourist attractions, monuments, museums, shopping, restaurants, markets and nightlife. Adding to this grand yet welcoming atmosphere are the two dining experiences, the Indian fine dine specialty restaurant, Bombay Brasserie and Mint, a relaxed all-day dining restaurant. Both are warm and welcoming and serve outstanding cuisine. Alongside this you'll find wonderful Champagne and tapas bar known as The Twankey Bar which is exceedingly popular with both locals and guests alike. Rooms are located in both the heritage buildings and the contemporary tower wing, but all continue to seamlessly merge history and modernity. Luxury Rooms have spectacular city or breathtaking mountain views overlooking the famous Table Mountain and the Taj Club Rooms and suites offer all the benefits of the executive Club Lounge including butler service, evening canapes, cocktails and private breakfast. One and Two Bedroom Suites are also available, perfect for the discerning traveller or for families. The award winning Jiva Grande Spa is one of its kind in Africa with unique and authentic wellness treatments and experiences. Also on offer is complimentary use of all wet areas, heated pool, and a high tech gymnasium. ... more   less
