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.
