The Cape Grace could not be in a better location! You are in the heart of the V & A Waterfront, walking distance to shops, bars and restarurants. The Cape Grace is on it's own private quay, allowing for amazing views of the waterfront and Table Mountain. Right form the second you walk in, it's luxury all the way! The... More

As other reviewers have said, this hotel is faultless. Magnificent location, the best hotel we've ever stayed in. The staff are fantastic,attentive but unobtrusive,helpful beyond all expectation. Rooms are very spacious with amazing views. I could go on but stay there and experience it yourself.

Spent three days at the Cape Grace on a holiday. It is, as other reviewers have noted, nearly perfect in every respect. Service is attentive and conscientious without being fussy or intrusive. The staff (both at the concierge desk and through to the waitstaff and maids) were not only helpful, but also warm. The rooms are spacious and exceedingly well... More

Perfect location, unbelievable staff, beautiful accommodations, private 750il car service for guests, surrounded with excellent restaurants and shopping. (Ex: The grilled calamari at Sevruga is awesome). Lovely breakfast and room service options on premise. What else can I say but perfect experience, none better. Enjoy...

This is a beautiful hotel with great service and a wonderful location! Granted my mother and I were upgraded to a beautiful suite - but even if we hadn't been I'd have still rated this hotel a 5! The breakfast was fabulous. The staff knew our names within a day. Free Wi-Fi in the rooms! Nothing was left wanting at... More

The Cape Grace is one of the best, if not the best boutique hotel I've ever stayed in. It stays true to the category it's in: if you don't mind paying 350+ GBP per night for a standard room, then you'll get the privileges you would expect from paying that price: The outside, entrance, corridors and rooms are superbly decored,...

Wonderful hotel, all of us loved this hotel, the location is unbelevieble with the high quality of the food, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Cape Grace hotel and their employees. We are always greeted with a beautiful smile from Mery at the front desk. She is such a joy to deal with....extremely professional and willing to... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel at the end of our holiday in South Africa. We had already experienced some fairly high class hotels and very impressive service, but this place still managed to stand out. One example of their friendly and attentive service was when we came back from a run along the waterfront and as we were... More

This is an expensive hotel and therefore has a lot to live up to but it did not let me down. My room overlooking Table Mountain was simply wonderful, very comfortable and with a lovely bathroom too. A treat indeed! Stay here when visiting Cape Town's Waterfront.
