    From dissapointment to Excellence

    Initially I was very disappointed as the room I received was not the one I booked. When I enquired about that all they could tell me was that the pictures displayed on the room I booked was false. I spent one night in the incorrect room. I then however asked to be upgrade, which they did at an additional cost of R500, the upgraded room is outstanding. It is exactly what I originally booked. Service with regards to my upgrade and move to the new room had been great. I am very very impressed with this room and I will most definately stay at the Taj again.

    They have given meaning to hospitality

    This is my preference place to stay in the Cape. However, this time the food was not so great and what annoys me is that with all these hotels lately Covid-19 gets blamed for everything that can go wrong. After my complaint, the head chef made sure to address the short comings and promised next time it will be like what I am used to get at this place. What I like most here is the attention to detail they always give, for example: I booked a room for a couple with a 16 month old baby. When we arrived in the room, there was a small gown with ours in the bathroom waiting on our son! No other place I have ever been has done those little things that made us feel special as the Taj. There staff is extremely well trained and hospitality is the main focus here. They make you feel special.
