We recently stayed at The Cape Grace Hotel for seven nights (12th - 18th February 2012) and have nothing but praise for the kindness and attention from all the staff. Nothing was too much bother and helped us have a fantastic week exploring the best of Cape Town and the surrounding areas. The comfort,cleanliness and quality was a constant and... More

My husband and I and our two teenaged boys stayed at Cape Grace Hotel in the 2 bedroom suite for the first 5 nights of our stay in South Africa. I can't find anything negative to say about this hotel and its staff (and we're from NYC). Everything here is sheer perfection, elegance and luxury, without pretension. Starting with our... More

£2,000 for 3 nights (dinner in on the first night), but worth every penny. The epitomy of discreet, high quality service, with well trained and thoughtful staff. Great location with high security. Small pool, but everything else was great - the antiques that adorn every nook and cranny reflect the quality and attention to detail that differentiates a good hotel... More

We stayed here for the first two nights, of our first trip to South Africa. What a start! Cape Grace is the epitomy of discrete, personalised service, where absolutely nothing is too much trouble and every member of staff takes pride in their job and in providing real service with a smile. We could not fault anything, location, facilities, service,... More

The staff cater to your every need, the rooms r large, clean, well equipped and the location on the V&A waterfront is so convenient. I can... More

We recently spent 4 nights at this luxurious hotel on the waterfront in Cape Town. Service could not have been better. Responsive, cordial, and welcoming throughout all hotel staff. The lobby decor was charming and made you feel as though your safari was beginning. Rooms were spacious, (although we didn't stay in the balcony suites). I particulary loved the floor... More

Don't really need to add much as previous reviews are all spot on. I have stayed at plenty of so-called five star hotels before that really don't come up to scratch, that's why I would give the Cape Grace an extra star. Look no further for your Cape Town stay.
