We recently went to the grand cafe for dinner and were very disappointed. When we arrived there were only two other people in the restaurant, however it took 29 minutes to be served out 2 glasses of wine!! We were then pretty much forgotten about until we decided to sit down and eat, still no more guests in the restaurant... More

This is a lovely boutique hotel with the most amazing views. We stayed in room 7 which was lovely. The rooms are unusual in design for example we had a double shower inside the room itself ( not a separate bathroom) and we glimpsed a peek in a suite and again beautiful, unusual this time with a tropical outside shower!...

We booked a room with view on the sea, we didn't get one. The pice/performance ratio is really bad in this hotel. Staff is very unfriendly. We were really disappointed and wouldn't recommend to stay in this hotel.

We were excited to visit Grand Cafe and Room for lunch as we are big fans of Grand Beach in Cape Town, but were very disappointed at the quality of the food as it certainly did not match up to the standards of it's counterparts. Pizza bases were not available, the homemade burger patties were near tasteless lacking basic seasoning... More

This was our first time staying at the Grand. It couldn't have been better. Great location in the centre of town, fantastic staff service made us feel right at home, the rooms are huge and quirky, views are beautiful

Huge bed, beautiful lounge area and roll top bath. Great views across the bay. Lovely massage at the spa. Cons - shower in... More
