We stayed at the Cape Grace in V @ A waterfront in South Africa in January 2016 the service food and the staff first class. Our bedroom 316 had a fantastic view of table mountain I would recommend this 5 star hotel.

I had seen this property before but did not understand it until I stayed and WOW. The service here is SO slick with true attention to detail. By comparison to other waterfront properties Cape Grace is a small boutique spot with amazing location, fantastic food and amenities. From Bascule Bar that feels like you are in the belly of a...

I had the pleasure of staying at the Cape Grace for five nights. This is a top notch hotel, which oozes with charm. The welcome and treatment by staff is very warm and courteous - you'll often be told "welcome back home" upon returning to the hotel. This is one of those "grand hotels" that is actually well maintained and... More

The moment you pull up to the Cape Grace you are greeted with the highest level of service! All of the staff are dedicated to making your stay amazing. I arrived late on Christmas Eve. When I arrived in my room they had placed a small dessert tray with a chocolate snowman and a handwritten note welcoming me!! Such a... More

Just had a lovely stay at this hotel. Beautiful decor, service excellent, great location and that extra bit of attention to detail some other hotels are lacking. Staff treat you as a valued guest and nothing seems to be too much trouble. Other hotels could learn a lot from the way this hotel is run. Hope to return soon!

We stayed at the Cape Grace for only one night before a cruise. The service was top shelf and the room was comfortable, roomy, and delightfully appointed. The hotel is located central to all waterfront amenities. The concierge arranged for a car to take us to Table Mountain. It was a comfortable town car with a friendly driver. He came... More

We spent a beautiful day at the Cape Grace and found it to be a hotel in the grand, old style. The room was beautiful, and the hallways were beautifully appointed with antique china plates and etchings. It overlooked the harbor. And the breakfast was superb. Just a magnificent hotel and hope we can return again.

Little chocolates on a welcome plate in our room,Christmas present on Chrisrmas Day, mince pies and Christmas cake under a done on each floor for everyone to help themselves-well it was... More
