In a bid to escape grey English skies, my younger son Edward (16) and I headed off to Cape Town for February half-term. I must confess that the key driver for choosing South Africa as a destination was good weather with no jet lag on our return so on the assumption we would only be visiting once we might as... More

Cape Grace is a lovely place to stay in Cape Town. Comfortable, well appointed rooms with fantastic service. Nothing is too much trouble. It's also very convenient for all the restaurants and activities offered by the V & A Waterfront. Highly recommended.

The Cape Grace is one of those hotels where you feel as if you have stepped back in time. Furnished with antiques and repurposed fabrics and furniture, the atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. The only negative was that we did not request a room on the Table Mountain side, but instead received a room on the shipyard side. The sand... More

This hotel has it all --- when great architecture, location and pure luxury are combined with excellent service you get opulence personified. The rooms are spacious and have great views, whilst the hotel has excellent lounges and a great bar. The bonus is the location i.e. the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town I recommend this place very highly

The Cape Grace is the definition of an understated 'grace'. Every detail is considered. Rooms are luxurious without being flashy, classic decor, excellent bath amenities, a dressing table, padded slippers. The pool deck and downstairs bar succeed in making one feel aboard a very lux yacht. Breakfast both buffet and hot courses are interesting and very well-prepared. Most notable is... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel as an anniversary treat. Not only is the location great, but we cant fault the rooms, staff and service. The hotel has a lovely 'old school' grace and charm which you just don't get at the new modern hotels. Nothing was too onerous or burdensome for the Cape Grace... More

This hotel is wonderfully located for business and pleasure and has staff who genuinely seem to want to help. Nothing is too much trouble and the attention to detail is impressive . It is hard to find any fault with this hotel.

The location is perfect as it right next to the Waterfront for restaurants, shopping, etc. For the whole of our... More

We stayed here on our first few nights in South Africa - great location for V&A docks and trip to Robben Island. Very close to lots of restaurants and easy drive to Table Mountain. Food in the restaurant was delicious and the staff extremely helpful.
