This is a grand hotel. They spoilt us rotten. Not one employee did we come across in our week long stay who did not go out of the way to make eye-contact or smile & greet.

And, never for a tip.

That is what the Taj Group is about. The world's greatest Hotel group with service standards equivalent to what Singapore Airlines offers in the air.

This Taj is not just an awesome, dignified, property but it is run highly professionally. It has Muchi the best concierge that my wife and I have come across in 35 to 40 years of travel and staying in 4 and 5 star hotels.

The breakfast was a treat and the service attentive and prompt. For lovers of South Indian food, rejoice: they usually have something every morning in the buffet. Mind you, the breakfast is strictly western but the choices are varied. And, they serve a mean cup of masala 'chai' too!

The rooms are immaculately maintained and painstakingly cleaned though on a couple of days we missed the fresh fruit which we gave to some of Cape Town's many homeless.

They are a city hotel AND have a free shuttle which runs on the hour and takes you to both Table Mountain as well as V & A Waterfront. It is a terrific idea. They also have a free limo, for short hauls - check if you are eligible.

All in all, a fantastic hotel from a venerable group (TATA) who own Land Rover, Jaguar, Tetley Tea, etc.

The TATAs are India's best known conglomerate, well known for their ethics, care, service and integrity.

The Taj Cape Town lives up to their group credo and enhances it, every day.

Don't even think of staying anywhere else in Cape Town.

Room Tip: Old wing !

Lots of staff standing around ! Good room , shambolic breakfast service , no control over staff , never even asked if I was staying in hotel ! Biggest disaster was walking back from town to find my car parked outside hotel , I had not requested it ! And believed it was valet parked under the hotels ticket system , supposedly fool proof ? So how come someone managed to call my car down , Massive apologises but no real explanation . I did not need car until next day . Lots of coach tour business here which blocks up entrance . Barely 4 star these days .

Its been 5 year since last I stayed in Taj Cape Town, the experience last time I was here made decide to explore other hotels.

However this time around, thank you to my sister insisting that we stay here, I got reminded why this is one of my favorite hotels in this beautiful city.

Hospitality is always great, every one from valet to room service is adequately attentive, rooms are clean, classically put together and spacious with a gorgeous view of the mountain.

The local is ideal, from a walking distance you can access restaurants and bars of your liking and explore some of the cultural places in Cape Town.

Love the fact that hotel has shuttle services for both the airport as well as camps bay and waterfront. One dont really need a car while here, not unless you planning trips outside town.

Taj Cape Town, I guess we have found each other again.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled with family
