Table Bay Hotel | Cape Town
Location, location, location...breakfast, breakfast, breakfast.
A large hotel right in the waterfront. Up an escalator from the hotel lobby and you are in the Waterfront Mall. Baia is in the mall and is our favorite restaurant in Cape Town very close to where you enter the mall. There are many food outlets in the mall and two other favorites are Willoughby’s and Ocean Basket.
The retail area of the waterfront is accessed via the mall and it a very short distance from the where you enter the mall from the hotel.
The Public Areas of the Hotel
The hotel has a very upscale elegant large lobby. Beautifully decorated with many fresh flowers it has a quality feel from the moment you arrive. This is a large hotel not a small boutique property and has all the amenities offered by this type of hotel. A concierge is around to assist with any need you may have and security is good with a room card required to access your floor.
Restaurants and Food
The lounge is located in the lobby where they serve an outstanding afternoon tea and a light menu with salads, pastas and small plates. Plush furniture and a sea view set the stage for a delightful dining experience.
The hotel also has an upscale restaurant called Brasserie with an extensive menu featuring standard fare along with a lot of South African specialities.
Union Bar is the dedicated bar area and a nice meeting place with a very nice décor and a good cocktail selection. The Breakfast is unbelievable!
Atlantic is the main restaurant where the most amazing breakfast buffet I have ever seen is served. It is a bit overwhelming at first. Cooked to order eggs are offered by the wait staff. They have delicious cooked to order crepes and waffles station and more juices than I knew existed. Extensive fruit and bread selection along with items for every nationality. An experience you will remember.
This is a large hotel with many different types of rooms. However, they are all very spacious and nice, with ample closet and drawer space. A nice sized marble bathroom with a full size bathtub and separate walk in shower. We enjoyed our room. Our bed was large with a comfortable mattress, pillows and linens. It is a rich traditional feel that is very comforting after a long flight.
