Stayed 5 nights during our honeymoon in South Africa, wonderful hotel with old world charm but all the modern amenities one could ask for. Super comfortable bedrooms and delicious food. A very short walk to the V & A Waterfront where there are lots of nice shops and restaurants. The Bascule Bar is a great spot to unwind after a... More

What can I say about Cape Grace only it was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in!!!!! The location is amazing right on the waterfront, the staff are so friendly and attentive and the food is really good. We stayed here for four nights at the end of December. It was busy but service was consistently exceeded.... More

Just stayed at the Cape Grace for the second time and it gets even better. The combination of lovely rooms and a staff who can't do enough for you is unbeatable. It is definately in my top 5 hotels that I have stayed in and the experience is wonderful.

The place is in a great location and the rooms are fantastic. When we were there, there was some construction outside and there was no Wifi for a few hours. Also, every time I went to guest services to exchange $$, there was noone there. BUT, the restaurant for dinner was AMAZING and they have the most beautiful breakfast buffet... More

Everything about the Cape Grace is superb. For a start every member of staff was incredibly pleasant and helpful. The bedroom overlooking the dock had everything we needed, we even had a pod of 5 dolphins everyday to watch. Breakfast was very good, everything lovely and fresh. We had dinner on one of the nights and I have to say... More

The Cape Grace is pure luxury with old world charm. The rooms are well appointed and so inviting that you want to stay and enjoy the view with a glass of wine. The public areas, bars and restaurants are all good choices for the evening if you only have a short time in the V & A area of Cape... More

Wonderful views up to Table mountain. Great location for the waterfront. Top floor room was spacious and balcony good to sit and watch the view. However (and for me this is a big issue) the design of the hotel includes an extractor fan to all rooms which you cannot turn off (even though the staff did try their best). This... More

We just spent 5 nights at Cape Grace and had an amazing experience. The service was amazing and the property was impeccable. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of champagne and local fruits when we arrived to our room. The room itself was quite large with all the amenities you expect of a 5-star hotel. What distinguishes Cape Grace... More

We spent just one night at this beautiful hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. The accommodation was superb with a great view over the Waterfront and of Table Mountain. Careful thought had gone into the design of the facilities and there was a dressing area with plenty of wardrobe and drawer storage and an excellent bathroom with separate... More
