Rising eight stories above ships and fisheries, the Table Bay has picture-perfect harbor views and direct access to waterfront shops and restaurants. Occupying a modern gabled building, the hotel sits on the site of an 1869 stone breakwater wall, which has been incorporated into the architecture. Common areas here have a maritime theme, with paintings of legendary local ships; the most inviting is the first-floor Lounge, with its high open-trussed ceiling and expansive atrium window beautifully framing a view of Table Mountain (the perfect spot to hunker down in a cozy chair and enjoy the decadent afternoon tea spread). While the 329 guest rooms aren’t inspiringly decorated, they’re spacious and comfortable, with dark wood and marble bathroom vanities—and all have water views. 

Room to Book:

First-floor rooms are the only rooms with balconies; choose an even-numbered room for one facing the harbor (rather than the less-bustling Atlantic side).

Insider Tip:

Grab a seat, a beer, and a burger (considered to be the best in town) among locals in the hotel’s rosewood-paneled Union Bar.
