We were recommended by our friends to experience the high tea in The Lounge on V&A Waterfront. The Table Bay hotel has excellent location which is surrounded by the majesty of Table Mountain with wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean. The Lounge is equally loved by both tourists and locals and famous for its grandeur with classic décor, timeless finishes...

We have been in this hotel in march 2017, in an incentive trip with our company. It is true that the trips organized with this company are just AMAZING, but it is a reality that if the Table Bay was not good enough, this company had never choosen it!

The hotel provides a free shuttle bus service to Table Mountain and we took this following our early arrival from London Heathrow, before we had even checked into our room. Take advantage if the sun is shining as it may be your only opportunity! Fabulous room, very comfortable beds and pillows. The hairdryer was definitely past it's best but had...

We stayed at the Table Bay Hotel May 17-21 and loved every minute of it. The hotel and rooms are beautiful and the staff is the most accommodating staff I've ever encountered. We had a great time in the bar with the bartenders Thato and Ryan - they were the best! We can't wait to come back!

We had a lovely stay at The Table Bay Hotel. We enjoyed everything about it. It sits right on the Victoria and Albert wharf so it is VERY convenient to shopping and strolling during the evening or during the day. We felt very safe, since there were security guards throughout the wharf area. The hotel itself has a lovely morning...

I did enjoy the hotel, my room had great views and the direct walk into the Waterfront Center makes the location perfect for tourists and business travellers. The set-up is good, well trained staff and a good bar. Get a corner room, so you have both mountain and sea views.

This five star hotel deserves ten at least! On the terrace is a statue of a dolphin below which are plaques commemorating visits by every star you can name, royalty, politicians, US presidents, sports stars, we were the only people we'd never heard of!!!!! Anyone who's anyone states here. Even us!! The hotel is utter pampering luxury. Not for nothing...

We have been staying in many hotels around the world and quite a few in Cape Town. This hotel was included in a cruise package with a company in the UK called Imagine Cruising.
