We stayed here for 9 days in Jan 2023 and it was amazing from the beginning to the end of our stay. The consistency of the quality of the staff, the hotel has an victorian meets Indian design which is perfect. It is close to most activities you'd want to do in Cape Town. The food was amazing! And so was the spa.

Wonderful! The location is great. Mountain View room recommended. The breakfast buffet was great to get your day off to a good start. The concierge was excellent arranging day trips and excursions. I have stayed at several Taj hotels around the world and this property was great. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

This trip was my first and long-awaited trip to Cape Town, SA…and I’m glad to say that I couldn’t have chosen a better property to stay at. As soon as I stepped out of the car, I was immediately greeted by professional Valet Attendants and Doormen who remained kind, professional, attentive and friendly for my entire 4-night stay. As I entered the lobby and reception areas, again, I was immediately greeted by friendly, knowledgeable and professional Front Desk Associates who always remembered and used my name whenever they saw me moving around the property, which truly makes you feel welcomed and at home-away-from-home. Namely, Front Desk Associate Khanyi always went above and beyond by walking me to various places (i.e. VIP Lounge, Restaurant, etc.) instead of simply pointing/directing me to the location. I would like to give a special thank you and acknowledgment to the Front Desk Manager, Pepy who was by far, the most kind and professional staff member I interacted with. He provided me with an upgraded room that really exceeded my expectations. In addition, he regularly checked in on me and my party (i.e. Lobby, Restaurant) to ensure that we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. I have absolutely NOTHING constructive to mentioned about the staff, hotel property, nor services offered at the Taj Cape Town. Thank you to all of the staff (housekeeping included) for making my stay so comfortable and memorable. Taj Cape Town will be my hotel of choice in the future.
