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

What a wonderful place to land after such a long trip from the US. The Cape Grace Hotel is a beautiful property and was our first stop on our two and a half week family trip to Africa. All of our rooms faced the harbor and had a beautiful view of Table Mountain. Our room was lovely with a very... More

Cape Grace often features in lists of the world's top 100 hotels and deserves the honor! Beautiful hotel, stunning views over the Waterfront, easy parking outside the hotel and easy access to the Waterfront. Very friendly, helpful staff. If anyone has any complaints about such a place it seems impossible. Nothing is too much to ask of the team and... More

Hi, Second stay at the Cape Grace in two years. Nice area around the waterfront. Rear facing rooms have the best view of a yachting Marina. Beds are VERY comfortable with superb linen. It's so good you'll notice. But the main thing is, the staff get to know you. Address you by your surname and are always on hand to... More

I've been going to the Cape Grace since 1997. And there is a good reason: it is simply the best. A hotel is (of course) about the right bed and shower, to have a good rest/night's sleep. But when it comes to all the other bits and pieces, that is where the real differences start to transpire. One telling tale... More

A cheerful group of porters greets guests as they arrive at the lovely Cape Grace. Lovely vases of proteas decorate the tables in the lobby. A friendly concierge stands ready to assist. And that's just the first five minutes of our experience at the Cape Grace. The Cape Grace is a beautiful hotel with elegant yet comfortable rooms and an... More

You would have to go a long long way to find ANY FAULT in the Cape Grace. I have stayed here 3 times and on every occasion, I was made to feel like I was the only customer they gad in terns of attention to detail and overall service.

Our family stayed at Cape Grace as our base to explore Cape Town. It was our last stop on our adventure to Southern Africa and our first urban location Located right at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront with easy access to the waterfront shops and restaurants is hard to beat. The hotel is very lovely and the staff was very... More
