    The staff and facilities couldn't be faulted. No ask was too much and the advice given by the concierge team was excellent.

    The only thing the let's the hotel down slightly was that there are better locations within Cape Town for this type of luxury hotel. A couple blocks walk the 'wrong way' led to some undesirable parts of town.

    Good variety at breakfast. Hotel staff was very friendly throughout. Spa staff was very professional. Facilities at the hotel excellent as well as your location. We can recommend the freshly made pasta at The Mint restaurant.

    Iron board was broken and I would prefer excellent coffee at breakfast in a 5 star hotel. I'm a coffee snob.

    The view of Table Mountain is spectacular

    The room was not ready at 2pm. Random people tried to enter our room in the afternoon. There was no turn down service which I would expect for a 5 star hotel.

    The suite in the Heritage wing was beautiful. The floorboards were a bit squeaky but otherwise it was one of our favourite rooms in any hotel ever. As always, the Taj was very good value for money and we will be back.

    Housekeeping staff were friendly but didn't understand our requests until the third time. Breakfast was good but unfortunately the Indian chef was away so we couldn't enjoy the specialty breakfast that we booked at the hotel for in the first place.
