From the moment we arrived at TBH we had no complaints. We got greeted by Alan who welcomed us to the hotel and took our luggage to our room. Our room was sea view facing and it wanted for nothing. The bed was divine and I had the best 7 nights sleep ever. As we were celebrating a birthday and anniversary the hotel had arranged some little treats in our room. Kelsey, on reception went above and beyond to help us source where we could have our PCR test’s done prior to our departure. We were booked in for B&B and have to say, the breakfasts were amazing and set you up for the day. The restaurant manager, Laaiqah ran a fabulous team. Everyone was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The chef on the egg station, Ben; he went out of his way to help with my daily order of 2 fried eggs done in olive oil rather than butter as I have a dairy intolerance. A separate frying pan was used specially. My husband and I had the best 7 days touring around Capetown and every time we returned back to the hotel we always had a very warm welcome from staff such as Pengani. Our time in Capetown was made even more enjoyable with staying in a 5* hotel with exceptional staff.

This hotel far exceeded our expectations! I was a little hesitant reading reviews saying it was outdated and with the hotel not being a well known brand. Everything was exquisite! We stayed 4 nights in a harbor view room overlooking Table Mountain. The hotel itself is gorgeous and the staff go above and beyond to help you and make sure you are enjoying your stay. The location is great. We felt extremely safe and the hotel is in walking distance to many restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The hotel exceeded all our expectations. The personal touches, friendly staff, brilliant breakfasts, cocktails, good spa, waterfront access, fitness centre and location to name just a few, all contributed to a brilliant celebration long weekend. Our room (328) overlooked the harbour, waterfront to the right and table mountain in full view in the background. We pre-booked a stylist (easy and seamless pre-arranged access), flowers (perfect), champagne and some other personal touches - the hotel did not miss a beat. I have to single out every single member of the staff we had the privilege of interacting with. The hotel is most probably impacted by COVID, it does not show on the faces of staff. Absolutely professional, friendly and on point. We were treated like royalty. (By the way, check out Oscar’s base, royalty has stayed here before, so you know they know how.....) We will return, probably many times.

We were upgraded on arrival and the rest of our stay was wonderful. The rooms are very spacious and the bath rooms very modern. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delish. The hotel is well situated for traveling in Cape Town.
