                                                                      I was not aware of the service offered by the hotel of taking clents to destimations within a 20km radius.I was also not aware of the rooftop cocktail bar.I think that when you arrive at the hotel the concierge should give you a run down on all activities and services offered at the hotel.

                                                                    • Older travelers

The three Concierge that we dealt with were amazing - knowledgeable and helpful. The woman at the front desk who checked us in actually walked us to our room to explain the various room amenities to us personally. We had dinner one night at the Bombay Brasserie there at the Hotel and it was one of the most amazing culinary experiences I have ever been through. We selected the wine pairing meal where the chef chose what we ate and paired each course with various South African wines. This meal is truly not to be missed!

                                                                      I couldn't think of a single thing we didn't like about the Taj Cape Town.

The first for turndown at 7pm while we were still preparing to gou out (too early and disruptive), the second from a person ("supervisor") around 10 a clock to hear if all was fine ( Very disruptive) and then a third later that night for again some enquiry that I could not remember what it was for. For a one night stay, 3 calls are excessive - we did not think to put up the do not disturb sign after the turndown was done. B: The roll down for bathroom privacy did not work - it rolls down but does not lock. Spent long frustrating minutes to try and fix that standing on top of the bath surround. C: The wrong car was delivered to us by valet parking...almost packing our bags in it as well. The valet parker almost appear surprised that I even questioned their delivery (he was not rude though) and pointing out to him that the voucher / key of the car belonged to a guest "Mr Baloyi" and that I am not Mr Baloyi brought a smile to his face. The right car was brought up eventually.
