I will start by saying I would give this hotel 3 1/2 stars but since it is not available and since I don't believe it deserved 4, I've given it a 3. So, lets go on to the review: 1. The best aspect of this hotel is its location, which is absolutely perfect. The hotel literally sits in the middle...

Once again The Table Bay delivered in every way. This was our third stay in less than a year and a half - a good indication of how much we love this hotel. I have a few health issues and the hotel and their staff always go the extra mile to make my stay as comfortable as possible. A special...

What a wonderful way to relax after sight seeing in Cape Town. This hotel is not just beautiful but the staff are SUPERIOR. the High Tea was a wonderful treat.

we went both times for a wedding in south Africa. To me it is in a perfect position right on the water front above the shops. It is secure with a large roof top pool with magnificent views of Table Mountain. Having breakfast with the Sea lions was a first a bit smelly but such fun, to sightseeing and shopping...

This hotel is lovely. it is well situated right on the water front near trendy little shops and fabulous restaurants. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and the breakfast buffet is surreal. Live piano music at breakfast and in the evening was a lovely touch. The pool area seems small but we always found a chair and the staff...

5 star hotel within the V&A Waterfront so the perfect location for the attractions. The rooms were spacious and clean and the staff exemplary. We only had breakfasts here but they were first class. Excellent laundry service.

Stayed at Table Bay at the end of an escorted tour from Johannesburg to Cape Town. I can honestly say I can't fault the place. My room was on the 5th floor overlooking the harbour. The staff made me feel like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble. Lovely touches like a fresh rose in the bathroom and nougat and fresh...

Disappointment! Table Bay, your location is your only asset! Your service is slow, you forget bar and food orders, your drivers are late, and even when the Reception staff try to accommodate special occasions, your colleagues let you down. Until your staff, your service and your location are in sync, the hotel is not worthy of so any stars. P.S....
