We stayed at the Cape Grace during our honeymoon. The service was marvelous. They had a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room when we arrive. The staff was very helpful. Breakfasts in the dining room were well done and complete - continental or full. We had dinner one night and found the food well-prepared and tasty. My wife had... More

Nicely located with easy access to the waterfront and Robben ferry. Walk to the city (Long Street) is reachable for most people. Even hikes Signal Hill and Lions Head can start from the hotel. For further distances there is a limo available. The hotel should to used as a school for other hotels for how to run a hotel. We... More

If you are going to visit, this is the place to stay. Conveniently located near the wharf and many sights. Easy ferry to Robben Island to see where Mandela was imprisoned for 22 years. Be sure to visit the wine district at Stellenbasch also while in Cape Town.

We recently spent four nights at the Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town, S.A. It is a very lovely hotel with fine service. Our room was well appointed and the location of the hotel is wonderful. The concierge desk was very, very helpful. We wrote ahead to ask them to make dinner reservations -- which they did. At the same... More

We stayed at the cape grace at the start of our honeymoon which was 4 nights in Cape Town, 3 nights on safari at Shamwari Game Reserve and a week in Mauritius. What a great start it was at the Cape Grace. Service was amazing. Our rooms were made up at least twice a day. Champagne was awaiting us on... More

We got one of the 3-bedroom suites on the third floor (toward the mountains) and it was ideal for our party of three couples. It contained a HUGE living room and dining area with a kitchen (great for mixing drinks). The suite is decorated comfortably - as if we were at home. We even had our first dinner served in... More

This is my first Trip Advisor review. Even though all of the reviews already tout the perfection at Cape Grace, I felt compelled to write this to future honeymooners that want to feel extra special during a unique moment of their life. We spent five nights at Cape Grace and chose a Table Mountain Luxury Room. Despite being winter, we... More

We visited the Cape Grace at the end of August for a family vacation (three teenagers). We arrived from a very long trip from New York. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel incredibly welcome. While the hotel is beautiful, the location ideal, and the room fantastic, they are all topped by the warmth, friendliness and quality... More
