My wife and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Taj. It was excellent in all aspects. On arrival, we were upgraded to a suite, which was a fantastic surprise as we were travelling for our honeymoon. We had complimentary access to the executive lounge, where there is a selection of food and drinks, and the two gentlemen at the front desk on our days there were extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was fantastic, very spacious with a huge bed and lovely bathroom and a great view of Table Mountain. The location of the hotel is great - 10 mins to V&A, 15 mins to Camps Bay and walking distance from the buzzy streets of Long Street, Kloof Street, Bree Street. The hotel even has 2 of their own cars which if available will take you where you need free of charge, otherwise uber is very easy to use. Special mention to the concierge team, Faaik, Luvo and the rest of the team who were so helpful in booking excursions and restaurants. The walking tour is also fantastic, the girl who takes the tour is so knowledgable and friendly- we did this on our last day but i would recommend doing this early on during your stay! Overall it was fantastic and we will definitely be back.
