For a stunning panorama, you can take the cable car up Table Mountain - the lower station is a 10-minutes taxi trip. A free shuttle takes you also to the beach.

Champagne and oyster bar

Combining 2 historic buildings and a 17-story tower, the hotel celebrates period style, with an Indian restaurant, all-day international dining, and Guinness, Champagne, and oysters at Twankey Bar. Relaxation options include the Jiva Grande Spa, a gym, and pool. Business travelers may choose among 9 meeting rooms. A free shuttle to the nearest shopping center is appreciated in particular by women.

A very good and comfortable stay
The staff and facilities at the hotel were lovely. Staff was very welcoming and went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. Our "heritage room" was large and comfrotable, if was perhaps a bit dated in its furnishings. We had a nice view of the cathedral across the street and could also see Table Mountain by lookign sideways. The swimming poll was excellent and the gym seemed good. They serve a large and plentiful and tasty breakfast in a comfortable dining room. The wifi was not good and could be incredibly slow. The surrounding area had some interesting shops and good restaurants but was a bit dodgy at night, with homeless and street people. Overall, we very much enjoyed staying at the Taj Cape town and would definitely stay here again.

Loved the Taj!!!
What a beautiful hotel!!! The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was impeccable, and the food was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I loved their texting app to contact the hotel if I was in need of a shuttle, towncar, taxi, tour arrangements and more. They were quick to respond to my every inquiry and request. And the view of table mountain was breath taking. Be sure to take advantage of their complementary 90 minute walking tour So you can get yourself situated with the area. I was absolutely blown away.
