Stayed here for 5 nights and found this a good hotel. Location on the V and A waterfront is superb with convenient access to all the shops and restaurants. Rooms are large and well maintained. Comfortable and all facilities worked well. Food offered in the hotel is average at best, but alternatives are close at hand. My only issue is - many of the service staff are poorly trained and motivated- they were there in large numbers but spent most of their time standing around and talking to each other. Overall, enjoyable stay but can be better. Read less

I visited many countries and stayed at many hotels in Africa and most left a lot to be desired however, Table Bay did an excellent job of keep the rooms clean, stocked with supplies, the spa was great and the staff friend and helpful. I also enjoyed the location with several restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay here again!

We were surprised and pleased at the quality and service of this Colonial themed hotel. Our room was well appointed and exuded class and comfort. It had a wide view of the pool below and the ocean beyond. Lovely views in the morning, during sunset and at night. The lobby and restaurant were luxurious and yet comfortable.

We were surprised and pleased at the quality and service of this Colonial themed hotel. Our room was well appointed and exuded class and comfort. It had a wide view of the pool below and the ocean beyond. Lovely views in the morning, during sunset and at night. The lobby and restaurant were luxurious and yet comfortable. The buffet breakfast is among the best we’ve had in both 4 and 5 star hotels. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was abundant in choices of eggs, meats, fruit and pastries. If we were to return to Cape Town, this would definitely be the hotel of our choice! Read less
