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

I have stayed at many 5 star hotels but easily the Cape Grace trumps them all. The rooms are huge, location and food excellent as are the staff. Nothing is left to chance and every effort is made to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The entire hotel is meticulously decorated with historic artefacts. We visited the bar which... More

My husband and I stayed at the Cape Grace earlier this month during our Cape Town leg of our honeymoon. I cant say enough about the sophistication, impeccable service and stunning facility and accommodation of the hotel. The concierge offered great suggestions about restaurants and I love the transportation (BMW cars) they offer. Every staff member we encountered had a... More

@TrafalgarSA invited 22 guests to enjoy a unique experience at this beautiful hotel last week. The service & friendliness of the staff was incredible and it was good to see that when we needed their assistance they were right there in an instance. We only realized at the very last minute that actually we required two sets of name place... More

I had family visit from Europe and wanted to spend quality time with my sister-in-law. What a brilliant idea to choose the Cape Grace Hotel for afternoon tea on a Sunday afternoon. Our table was reserved via email. I cannot fault anything - the view of Table Mountain and Signal Hill and the seals in the water was astounding, the... More

Picture this... A beautiful sunny day with the clouds scudding over the top of the mountains behind Cape Town, seals playing in the marina behind the Cape Grace and a grandstand seat on the terrace with afternoon tea. Pretty close to the dictionary definition of perfection. Amazing personal service, superb selection of sweet and savoury treats for the traditional afternoon... More
