Touristy location near many attractions, near the ferry dock for Robben Island, and convenient for Ubers to many other places. Comfortable big rooms with large windows overlooking Table Mountain for half the hotel. Palatial bathrooms Included breakfast served on terrace includes 5 million tempting choices including raw oysters, dried fish, all the "English Breakfast" foods, and lots of Asian stuff....

We stayed at Table Bay for a week in January, and thought it was great. The approach to the hotel from the front is really impressive and we were enthusiastically welcomed by the staff at the door, and shown to reception. Here things stumbled a little, for the first and only time. Check in is at 2pm, but we had...

I chose Table Bay because our cruise was initially set to depart from the nearby dock and convenience was a big factor. Our cruise was changed and so we needed to do a bag transfer.

Really enjoyed our stay here which took in the New Year celebrations. The breakfast is the most stunning array that I have ever seen and one could order literally anything from the kitchen in addition to the buffet. The hotel had great facilities with nice hints of an historic past. It has a good feel about it. As a travel...

Spent 5 nights at Table Bay and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are spacious and ours overlooked table mountain, which was lovely. It's not modern or new but it's well maintained. The location was also good - a mall is attached and attractions are nearby. Breakfast was included and was ample and diverse. The staff chatted with each other...

Everything about it was amazing. The rooms are beyond beautiful, the staff is more than lovely and accommodating, the breakfast is to die for, the restaurant offers very delicious food, the gym and pool were very nice and with excellent service. The concierge is more than helpful and hands on when it comes to arrange anything you want. Couldn't complain...
