Every aspect is considered, elegant and refined. I stayed here for ten days in early July. I had a Table Mountain Luxury room with a beautiful view of the mountain and the harbour. I’ve been to Cape Town several times before but this is the first time I’ve stayed at the CG. And what a lovely place it is. Such... More

Simply a perfect hotel! Amazing location right on the Waterfront with stunning views of Table Mountain. Combines local style with real luxury and has an amazing bar and restaurant. What impressed me most of all was the staff who were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! I will definitely be back!

We spent 4 nights here at the Cape Grace Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. The staff were consummate professionals in all aspects. The food was superb. the location was superlative for waterfront shopping and recreational walking. The harbor seals in the marina were entertaining. The view of Table Mountain was unsurpassed when the clouds permitted it. We ate... More

This place was phenomenal, start to finish. The property is ideally located in the waterfront, offering lots of action within walking distance. The room was gorgeous and the breakfast above and beyond. This is a place that's built for royalty.

Perfect Place in Capetown. Nothing bad to say. The three bedroom family suite was terrific and the food in the hotel was also terrific. The people couldn't be nicer. The gym was fine as was the SPA. The concierge was also very knowledgeable and helpful.

We were in South Africa on business, with rather short notice. The Cape Grace was a completely pleasant surprise. On arrival, our group was ushered into the board room for refreshments and an easy check-in experience. I can't tell if I had the luxury or superior room category but I can tell you my room was absolutely lovely, on the... More

The setting is elegant without being pretentious.

Beautiful hotel right in the heart of the V&A waterfront. We were greeted with glasses of wine (for us) and cups of hot cocoa (for the kids) to tide us over while we checked in. The two bedroom suite was beautiful and well-stocked with coffee, milk, juice, and fresh fruit. There was a complimentary car service to restaurants (just coordinate... More

We stayed at the Cape Grace at the end of our two week Namibian Safari tour. The creature comforts of a top-notch urban hotel were a wonderful treat after our days of adventurous but taxing dusty Land Cruiser rides in the Namibian Desert and bumpy Caravan flights between gravel landing strips. The hotel is nicely situated in the bustling but... More

False advertising: We saw glamorous and attractive images of the high tea on the internet. The internet advertised a selection of savoury and sweet nibbles. A quarter of what was advertised arrived on our plates. I must say that all the food we ate was very nice . We expected traditional South Africa goods.
