Hotel was great and staff was excellent and very professional. We arrived at Cape Grace after departing from The One & Only (just up the street) and were not as impressed with either the room or dated decor of the Cale Grace. It is a lovely property with positively more tradition than the more modern O&O although not as impressive... More

Stunning escape . Beautiful hotel, great service.. Comfortable rooms. But request room in middle overlooking mountain NOT an end room as view is obscured.. fantastic position walking distance to the great waterfront shopping and entertainment district. Museums, historical Robben Island port and ferry on doorstep. Perfect base to explore the beautiful city.

Having travelled extensively, we still consider The Cape Grace the best hotel in the world, and our home from home (we have stayed 14 times!). What makes this hotel so special is the staff - without exception, they are friendly, gracious and personally interested in their guests. Perhaps it is because we have been so often, but we are always... More

This is a dream hotel and a place that never lets you down. Loved to be back after a few years and can not wait to go back again. Beautiful rooms and the best setting in Cape Town. Friendly and helpful staff. First class restaurant. Loved to sit in the jacuzzi a look at the Table Mountain !

We stayed here a few nights in April straight off Rovos Rail. The evening welcome was warm and friendly in the elegant hotel lobby, making us feel at home immediately. A nice touch was the doorman saying "Welcome home" each time we entered, for this is how it felt. From the beginning, the hotel had that feel of being right,... More

We stayed here a few nights after a long vacation in the South African bush. It was a wonderful hotel, with a good view, great service, great restaurant, and very convenient location! We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it was perfect for our family. The shopping center was a convenient walk as were many restaurants. But the hotel... More

From the welcoming team at the entrance to the hotel , the Concierge service always willing and able to help with suggestions and last minute changes in plans, the superb dining experience at the Signal, an exquisite afternoon break with high tea and delicious cakes, the...

Returning after one year we were not disappointed. The same excellent service prevails - from the warm and friendly welcome - both initially and every day - to the immaculate bedrooms and amazing cleanliness. Service is the keyword throughout this hotel - from the door, to Reception, to Housekeeping, to Restaurant - but a special mention must be made regarding... More

The location is perfect, and safe. The staff great...attentive, well trained and very friendly. I've stayed in most of the good Cape Town hotels in the past, and this is my favorite. The restaurant is very good, but if you want an off property meal it's just a short walk to the V & A Waterfront and its extensive assortment... More
