We found this hotel to be fine with attentive and friendly staff. It has a very good location on the water and we felt it was a safe area to walk around. Meal and bar service were slow and the food was just average.

Without a doubt "a must do" , experience. From the moment of being picked up from the airport by the Cape Grace courtesy car, to arriving being greeted with the old world charm yet familiarity of "coming home". Although not modern, the amenities are fabulous and whilst being given "the tour" , delighted in all the various quirks and nooks... More

We really enjoyed this hotel. It's in a perfect location to base yourself to see all of the sights. The hotel is situated right on the V&A Waterfront, so plenty to do within walking distance, with amazing selection of restaurants and stores. We stayed in adjoining suites and the rooms were beautifully appointed. Very clean and modern hotel with excellent... More

The hotel is wonderful- all services related to this stay. The continental breakfast is excellent. The location next to the wharf is great with views of the marina and Table Mountain. The extras include cars to get you to restaurants and other sites to see. The concierge service is well-versed in all of the attractions, restaurants, etc. The rooms are... More

We had 3 nights here. The Hotel was out of this world! We stayed in a premier room with a view of table mountain and the kids 18,13 and 10 stayed directly opposite in their own room. They loved it. The staff were faultless. Anything you needed they sorted it out for you. The hotel has a certain air about... More

We looked at a number of hotels before deciding on Cape Grace and were so pleased with our choice. Firstly, the location is brilliant. We had a fantastic view of the Marina with the amazing backdrop of Table Mountain. It was great to be able to walk to the V&A Waterfront both during the day and for its great choice... More

What sets this wonderful hotel apart -aside from the unbeatable location on the Cape Town Waterfront - are the amazing staff: from top management to the doormen and cleaning staff - this hotel just oozes class. Dining is an absolute treat, each restaurant superb. The Grace is understated elegance-highly recommended

We spent a short three night stay in Cape Town,during our South African tour and,despite the winter weather,we hope to return but for longer,next time. We were well located for the V&A activities,shops,bars ,restaurants,and tourism opportunities. The hotel is sizeable yet holds the ambiance of a small boutique hotel. The friendliness and attention to detail of our needs from all... More

Cape Grace is a world class hotel. The room we had was spacious with a balcony overlooking the harbor. It had all the amenities one would expect of a luxury hotel. Welcoming staff was warm and friendly. The concierge was helpful setting up dinning reservations and chauffeur support to and from the dining venues. The restaurant, Signal, offered exceptional food... More

This is a lovely hotel with great service! The breakfast (included with our stay) was awesome -fresh, lots of variety and delicious! Great on-site food and beverage outlets, but also a short walk to local restaurants, shopping, attractions. The hotel was doing some pool renovations, and compensated us for the inconvenience with a free dinner (unexpected, but appreciated); the meal... More
