I stayed post cruise at the Cape Grace per recommendation of my travel agent the end of March,2014 for several nights. I knew I had made the right choice, as I was warmly greeted by the hotel driver of the luxury car that was sent to transfer me to the hotel from the cruise pier. The door staff and front... More

We stayed at the Cape Grace for two nights in February before embarking on a cruise along the west coast of Africa. We arrived at Cape Grace after an early morning arrival on a BA flight from London where the service had been, to put it kindly, graceless. Such a contrast to our arrival at Cape Grace where from the... More

If you want a remarkable hotel experience, I strongly recommend the Cape Grace Hotel in Capetown. The rooms and all public spaces are extremely beautiful-even the area to wait for the elevators on each floor have a living room feel. The staff greeted us by name at breakfast, remembered where we sat the previous day and were all very helpful.... More

Considering all 5 stars hotels that I've ever been to, no one has the quality of Cape Grace's staff. EVERYONE will make EVERYTHING for you to feel comfortable. They think about every detail. Everything so pleasant. Room, furniture, design, view. Great choice of wines and good food. I really appreciated staying in the waterfront area. You can walk around feeling... More

Cape grace is a fine hotel, located in the waterfront area. The staff is exemplary, friendly, helpful and knowledgable. Our room with a view of table mountain was plush and inviting. great selection of south african wines in the bar and the daily breakfast buffet was just delicious. no complaints here, Cape Grace is truly outstanding.

This hotel is not like the usual hotel. All the staff are extremely friendly, courteous and helpful and learn to call you by name, despite a short stay. The rooms are large and comfortable. The beds are great and the furnishings including the bathrooms are clean and neat. The public rooms are inviting and pleasant to the eye. The restaurants... More

Next to a working drydock is not ideal, but the view of the yachts in the marina was great. Stayed at room 2 on the ground floor an still had good views. The waterfront is a very nice area to walk around and the nice two cars of the hotel will take you to town and bring you back for... More

The Cape Grace has managed to combine old world charm with all the modern amenities a traveller could ask for! The ability to book the hotel car and driver to go sightseeing or just shopping was an extra, unexpected treat. The room was lovely overlooking the inner yacht harbour, quiet and peaceful. The room was spacious and had a separate... More

In very simple words it is a nice place with excellent environment of the hotel. The way the interiors are designed really makes it adorable for all the guests and it really is very good. Overall it is a very decent stay with affordable rates and good value for money.
