Property Description

2018 Loved by Guests Award

One of the Top 25 Hotels in South Africa
~ TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards 2017

Set on the historic Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, The Table Bay hotel commands views of the working harbor, the Atlantic Ocean and majestic Table Mountain with its iconic flat top. From the hotel’s luxury guest rooms and public spaces, guests can watch ships come and go as they plot the day’s adventures: a stroll around the bustling wharf, perhaps, with its shops, restaurants and entertainment; an excursion to the Cape Winelands; a lazy day on the beach; or a visit to Robben Island, the former prison turned museum that once held Nelson Mandela (who himself opened the Table Bay Hotel in 1997).

Billed as “Cape Town’s best address,” this neo-Victorian hotel is an exceptional choice for couples and family travelers to South Africa. It features 329 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites, three exceptional restaurants, a choice of inviting bars, a heated outdoor pool, and a pampering spa and health club. Complimentary shuttle service whisks guests to the city’s most popular attractions, while back at the hotel, guests can enjoy high tea in the Lounge, savor a signature Brasserie Tickles cocktail at the nautical-themed Union Bar, or unwind in the Jacuzzi with its spectacular sunset views over the Atlantic Ocean.


Camissa Brasserie: From the Khoisan name for Cape Town (“the place of sweet waters”), the new Camissa Brasserie offers elegant dining with harbor views. Art deco lighting, leather seating and cast iron tables create a classic brasserie ambience and serve as an inviting backdrop to a menu that evokes the cuisine of South Africa’s early settlers. Camissa’s separate wine tasting room and private dining space are ideal for special occasions.

The Union Bar: Its walls lined with world maps, this popular nautical-themed Cape Town gathering spot serves creative cocktails such as the signature Brasserie Tickles.

The Atlantic: Cape Town’s best breakfast buffet is complemented by unrivaled views of the harbor and Table Mountain.

The Lounge: A relaxing setting for breakfast, light meals and the hotel’s famous High Tea. The Lounge’s expansive window affords guests spectacular harbor and Table Mountain views.

The Pool Bar: Refreshing drinks and lights snacks are served al fresco in a magnificent poolside setting.

Meetings and Events

The Table Bay hotel can accommodate up to 300 for Cape Town’s most elegant meetings and social affairs. World-class chefs provide catering. There are five sophisticated function spaces, including a ballroom and a pavilion overlooking the harbor to Robben Island, and a business center with three private offices.


Swimming: The Table Bay features a heated outdoor mineral swimming pool and jacuzzi with views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Health Club & Spa: The Camelot Spa pampers guests with a wide variety of personalized beauty and wellness treatments for individuals and couples. The spa includes steam rooms, a hydro bath, laser therapy, and a double treatment room, as well as a gym with qualified personal trainers and views straight out to Robben Island.

Cultural sites: Between the hotel’s top-notch concierge staff and complimentary shuttle service, Table Bay guests enjoy easy access to Cape Town’s finest attractions, from historic Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned (now a museum), to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and Two Oceans Aquarium.

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront: Home to a wealth of shops, eateries and entertainment, plus a point of departure for helicopter tours and boating adventures.
