My stay at this iconic hotel could not be faulted. The Rooms are great. Luxurious and comfortable. Warm and friendly service. The breakfast buffet and hot selection was delicious. Next time I would like to try the Cape Wine Experience, Bascule and I would definitely do a treatment at the Spa. The hotel is great for couples or families. It... More

Cape Grace is perfectly located to walk all over the wharf and explore 100+ shops and 25+ restaurants, and all by itself it is a perfect destination. They even have a variety of brown liquor tasting, where you get a small flight of whiskeys or scotches with a description of what you are trying and how it will taste Breakfast... More

Our family of five adults spent three nights at Cape Grace following a week of safari camps. We were treated to one of the best hotel experiences of our lives! The rooms were beautiful, quiet, and restful.. The staff was amazing, each and every person we met going out of their way to make us feel welcome and cared for.... More

Stayed for two nights in a two-room suite as part of a larger South African trip organized by Imagine Africa, London. Our suite was extremely comfortable, overlooking the marina and with views of Table Mountain from the balcony. Two separate en-suite rooms with a large living area and small kitchenette stocked with drinks and snacks is ideal for a family.... More

One of the loveliest hotels we have ever enjoyed. Loads of charm and elegance. Rooms are spacious and well decorated - dinner selections were excellent - breakfast buffet cannot be topped. Husband enjoyed the whiskey tasting. Very short walk to the VA Waterfront. Best part was the greeting from staff as we returned from an active day - "Welcome Home."

This has been a truely memorable stay, from the time we sat foot I the hotel till the time we left we were treated like royalty. The near perfect service was a welcome relief as service levels in South Africa is not the best at times. Had a special birthday treat in the room and the Bascule whiskey bar offered... More

Stayed in a 2-bedroom suite with my family of 4. Suite had a kitchen and living room with bedrooms on opposite ends. Perfect place for Cape Town home base to tour and relax after 10 days on safari. My teenage kids enjoyed the location right on the V&A waterfront. Staff was amazing, gracious, and hospitable. Food excellent. Kids enjoyed relaxing... More

The Cape Grace has to rank amongst the best 5 star city properties in the world. Rooms are spacious and well furnished and the wifi works!! Common areas are opulent and stylish without being brash. Great breakfast. Concierge service is amongst the best I have encountered. They booked our restaurants and insisted we used the hotel limo to take and... More

Cape Grace was the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed at. Their customer service was the best I have ever had. I felt like my mother was taking care of me. Everyday they did something that amazed me! If you are ever in Cape Town you must stay at Cape Grace!!! They will spoil you.

We live 10 mins away from Cape Grace and after a night away, felt like we'd been away on holiday! The warm welcome from Nyameku and Johan made us feel right at home and our daughter rode the porter's trolley up to our suite. Thoughtful welcome gifts and wonderful amenities for children were laid out for us and we had... More
