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.

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

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 spent four nights at Cape Grace in Cape Town and it was wonderful! The staff was incredibly friendly from check-in to check-out and truly made an effort to accommodate us in every way possible. They have a great restaurant, delicious food and a really unique whiskey bar for cocktails at night (or during the day). The hotel also... More

Everything was perfect. Our room was beautiful - it looked out over the harbor. The hotel staff were friendly and new our names by the second day. We ate breakfast in the hotel every morning - delicious. We walked to different restaurants each night. Cape Town is a beautiful city. Make sure to visit the wineries and make the trip... More
