Best hotel with the best view of Table Mountain

We received prompt and friendly reception on arrival after a long and tiring flight from Australia. We had requested a room with view, and boy we got that and more. The room was large, a second large change/ luggage room, and beyond that a large bathroom with separate shower and bath tub. It was like having three rooms separated by doors to each. We had upgraded to the SPG members rooms, which meant we enjoyed free drinks that evening, free breakfast each day. Dinner was only a nominal charge extra in the private dining room, all very exclusive with attention ... to personal service. One of the best facilities was the shuttle bus which operates every fifteen minutes to and from the harbour, where you'll find great shopping and dining as well as street entertainment all in a safe environment. At the end of the night the shuttle is there to take you back to your relaxing hotel. It all helps to make your stay so enjoyable. I would definitely stay there again. read hotel review

The main issue is that the hotel is way too expensive if you look at the service and quality of food provided. Apart form that, service was pretty bad, staff was unhelpful, rude and unprofessional. read hotel review

The Westin is a typical city hotel. On arrival the vehicle from the staff in the underground garage parked. Very warm welcome and the check in is easy. There is also german-language Staff. We have many tipps for excursions received. We also have a free upgrade to the executive floor. Super! The staff in the restaurant was very attentive. The rooms are modern and very nice. Great view of the waterfront. Nothing was missing. Haus- Shoes, bathrobe, everything. The hotel offers almost 1/2 hour. A shuttle service to the waterfront And back. We often liked to use it. Bus (red ... and blue) for sightseeing stops In front of the hotel. Everything was great, we can highly recommend it. read hotel review

The Westin Cape Town is amazing. I was at the opening of parliament in cape town and the hotel was full of local politicians. As this left was anthological. Nevertheless the hotel was not crowded and the spa brilliant. Of the sauna one has a great view over the harbor and the hot tub can be a part of table mountain to see. The hotel is generally a bit 'cool' decorated. I liked it but really good pleased. read hotel review

The Westin is a very nice hotel, where you really feel very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very big and from all available. The quality of the food was perfect and the staff are also very friendly and accommodating. I would particularly like to highlight in 30 minutes intervals driving shuttle bus of the hotel to the waterfront, where numerous restaurants and shops are to be found. All in all a great hotel, which i absolutely recommend can. read hotel review
