Everything was great. Breakfast was good. Dinner is average but expensive, there are a lot of good restaurants closely.

We stayed here for two nights on the end of a long safari trip. The  term 'Grace' comes through in every dimension of this hotel's operation.  The setting in the marina, looking back at Table mountain, is lovely. We enjoyed the convenience of being close to the V&A attractions and walking around the shopping areas. The rooms are generously sized,... More

My wife and I were blown away by the Cape Grace. We never expected so many genuine smiles and hospitality out of a city hotel, but that's all received. We upgraded to a Penthouse Suite with lots of room, great views of the waterfront, and so beautifully (with a touch of quirk) decorated. Our hats off especially to concierge Hoon... More

This hotel is one of the best we've ever stayed in. The accommodations are very elegant. We stayed in a 3 bedroom suite and it was perfect for our family of five. The rooms are decorated beautifully, the beds are comfortable and the air conditioning is easy to regulate. Signal is a wonderful restaurant. Dinner is fantastic, but breakfasts are... More

We had serious reservations about visiting Cape Town and South Africa in general but we decided to try the Cape Grace, and we were so pleased that we did. The hotel was simply wonderful, the staff were so friendly and the view of Table Mountain was fantastic. South Africa is so cheap, relatively speaking, and we did not feel uneasy... More

This is a 5 star hotel hands down. Stayed here for a few nights in a 2 bedroom suite and everything was great. Staff were super friendly, efficient, and provided great service. Overall ambiance and decor of the hotel was spot on. Rooms were comfortable. I recommend this hotel to someone who likes understated luxury. This hotel will be at... More

I visited the hotel and regret not having stayed there. It is well run, great service and an attentive concierge who knew the city. also location is excellent as you are on the V&A. High tea is an experience and also the whiskey bar is the place to have a drink. The rooms with two bedrooms are very nice.

I stayed at the Cape Grace in March, as the fourth hotel I've stayed in Cape Town in as many months (see earlier reviews). This was by far the best, and amongst the best I've stayed anywhere. As nearly all the reviews here are glowing, let me try and explain why I think it's so good. The location is superb,... More

I can honestly say that this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Everything was 5*. We received a very warm welcome before being told we had been upgraded to a fantastic room with views overlooking Table Mountain. The room was impressive, comfortable and clean. The staff were wonderful, each time we walked through reception they... More
