The Cape Grace is widely considered among the top hotels in Cape Town and the reputation is well deserved. If you’re looking for European-style, 5-star luxury in the heart of the city, then the Cape Grace is a perfect option. The Cape Grace comes with all the amenities and service one would expect from a luxury property. Like any great... More

Cape Grace is amazing, from the service to the staff. Most of the staff knew my name very quickly. The views are magnificent and the accommodation is wonderful. The staff aims to please. The afternoon teas were delightful and main courses supreme.

The Cape Grace is a charming hotel with superb views of both table mountain and the waterfront. The rooms are luxurious and tasteful- all of the accommodations are up-to-date. The food is wonderful (especially the extensive breakfast buffet), and the environment is one that allows for work and for play. The hotel is very comfortable- no "wow factor", but certainly...

My boyfriend and our infant daughter stayed here for almost a week and enjoyed every moment! The hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating, our room was gorgeous and offered every amenity for our baby possible, making our stay extra comfortable. The hotels location was ideal for walking around the wharf & waterfront to all the restaurants, shops and attractions.... More

This was our fourth visit to this formerly outstanding hotel. The pickup from the airport was good, but arrival and checkin left a lot to be desired. I had requested an early checkin some months before and on arrival was told this would be prioritized. We explained we would go and sit in the Bascule Bar and the receptionist said... More

Visited for hols, rooms good though not wow factor, service and staff excellent five star, but so are many others. Feel of hotel quite formal rather than relaxed apart from Friday evening sundowners, great fun in the bar. Overall good if not a little pretentious....

The Cape Grace is a charming hotel that is within walking distance of the V&A Waterfront. Everything is exceptional from the service to the decor to the food. It is a very comfortable place to stay. I will be back.

This hotel is on the V & A Waterfront and in easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, the aquarium and much more. The staff are so helpful and friendly which matches the comfort of the hotel. Get a room overlooking Table Mountain and the Marina. Other rooms overlook a building site.

This hotel is on the bay within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The service is five star for sure. The staff is very friendly, great rooms and excellent breakfast. They have an ATM in the hotel and the charge was only $1.87 US per transaction.

I happened to arrive at the Cape Grace two days after my birthday...management greeted me with Happy Birthday and had a bottle of champagne as well as a small platter of sweet treats sent to my room along with a lovely, handwritten note wishing me a happy birthday! I've no idea how they even knew...but what a great introduction to... More
