I went with my family this month to stay for 4 nights. As my family is strict vegetarians, we did not eat lunch and dinner at the hotel restuarants. However, we had breakfast every day. We had a wonderful stay at the Tabel Bay! The location of the hotel is perfect. It faces the atlantic sea and back of the hotel faces the waterfront. Our rooms had the breathtaking view of the waterfront and the table mountain. The staff from the belman, concierge, receptionist, restuarant staff were very helpfull. The room service was very efficient. The breakfast had lots of choices. We throughly enjoyed our stay and would stay agian if we get a chance.

Great hotel best location and very clean and comfortable room. Negatives, shower is terrible freezing or skin off hot!! Lift broke 4 times during our 3 day stay and the room key packed up twice. Had to walk down 7 flights of stairs several times to get another key despite calling down from hall phone nobody arrived after 15 minutes!! Other than that staff always friendly and breakfast was great.
