The Food at this Hotel is amazing and ranks up with my best dinning experiences. There is a nice selection of Wines and varied daily specials. The restaurant is relaxed and casually elegant. Dine here and you will remember it fondly long after your meal is over.

We visited Cape grace during our 10 days South Africa & Safari vacation. It was our first stop and I am glad we booked Cape Grace to start our holiday. The facility itself is just great, spacious rooms, beautiful and well decorated interior / lobby area. It is not an ultra modern hotel but not very classic either. It has... More

Cape Grace is in the revitalised waterfront area of Cape Town. Staying here was a great experience in all respects; they get everything right. What really stood out was that the staff seemed happy. One waitress we talked with said that going to work in the morning was no hardship because it was a good place to work and that... More

The Cape Grace was our home away from home on several visits a year for years until we got our own place in Cape Town. 7 years after my last visit, I walked into the lobby without reservation. Imagine my surprise when Jacques, the Guest Experience Manager, greeted my son and I by name.. the hotel has gone from very... More

Our family spent 3 nights in this world-class luxury hotel. I cannot over-emphasize how lovely and comfortable our stay was here. As a 5-star Diva travel family, we have been to about 20 countries and stayed in some pretty amazing places...this one stands out as one of the best. In summary: Location: just perfect on the waterfront. Views are beautiful.... More

We have stayed at the Cape Grace several times and it never ceases to impress. From the moment you walk through the doors you are greeted by name by the attentive warm staff. The rooms are gorgeous, the staff faultless, nothing is too much trouble. Very personal caring service. The BMW 7 series car service that is complimentary within a... More

I have been to the hotel a couple of times. Every time is special and excellent. Went the other day for lunch only with my daughter. The restaurant for lunch was amazing. The food and service perfect! Stunning view.

This review has been far too long coming. My wife and I stayed at Cape Grace for 7 nights in September of 2013. We could not have picked a nicer hotel to stay in. From check-in to check-out our entire stay was absolutely perfect. The hotel staff was attentive and friendly every second of every day. Let me give a... More

A charming hotel on the waterfront that is incredibly comfortable and artistically designed. Staff are all helpful and friendly. The Conceirge helped us with the dinner reservations very efficiently. They even offer a free driver service that requires pre-booking. Rooms are spacious and immaculately serviced twice a day. Our rooms faced the Harbourfront and this is highly recommended. We were...

I recently booked at Cape Grace Hotel for 4 nights with my family. It was really great, our rooms were neatly done. I mostly loved the signal restaurant, the food was excellently served, and I should compliment one of the waiters there, Blessing. This guy is very humble and also doing his work properly, he really served us well and... More
