Couldn't have asked for better

Stayed here January 2014. Room was superb with plenty of facilities - marvellous selection of drinks in the minibar, powerful shower and nice big bath. Staff were very attentive at all times, especially to two old fogies, and by the time we left some of them seemed like friends. Not an extensive menu in the Mint restaurant, but all the food was fresh and well prepared and very tasty. If we go back to Capetown we will be staying here again.

The TAJ was disappointed

The TAJ remains one of those places that make you realise that there is a better place to stay. It is very central, exudes opulence and good service. HOWEVER, this time I had no internet connection for two days and the help at front desk was HORRIBLE, specifically one lady that acted as if she owns the hotel. They forget to do our Turndown one evening, but in general it was good. I just felt the menu is not as good as last year and the place is definitely more expensive. After my first stay I must say this was a "let down". Don't know if they ever read these to try and improve?

Something to remember

My first impressions were not good as the room was NOT ready on arrival which was AFTER 2pm. However, once we were in our room I was impressed with the room, the furniture, the convenience and luxury. The food in the restaurants were execellent with great menus and right prices as well as the room service. We only told the first night the "Turn down" service what we wanted and all other staff implemented without even us instructing them. The SPA is to my meaning totally over priced and what put me off was the staff at the entrance and consierge who forever made you feel you MUST give them a tip for just smiling at you. The feeling of beggars like in India. I understand why is this amongst the top hotels in South Africa.

The room service menu is the same price as the restaurant and very good. If you prefer privacy, eating at your leasure and time then make use of room service.

Mountain View

I paid for a 'mountain view': being Cape Town, I rather assumed this meant Table Mountain. No. There was a view of the hill next to the mountain, but Table Mountain could not be seen. Reception said that the view of the hill counted as a 'mountain view'. Very misleading indeed to pay extra then not see the one and only 'mountain' in Cape Town
