My wife, 2 1/2 year son and I stayed at the Cape Grace for 9 nights in January/February 2008. Simply put, it was outstanding in every respect. The hotel is ideally located within 2 minutes walk of the Victoria & Albert Waterfront, yet is far enough away to be peaceful. Staff at the hotel were exceptional welcoming but not overly... More

Stayed for 5 nights in total over Xmas and New Year 2007/8. Very well positioned for Cape Town 's lively waterfront. Superior room with balcony (overlooking Table Mt.) was excellent. Pool & poolside dining v. good. Restaurant top quality and hotel staff friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Cape Grace is a beautiful and elegant property located on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town. Our experience was overall excellent with a few minor complaints. When you first get into the Cape Grace, the individuals at the door will ask if you are checking in and then direct you to a couch to wait until a rep... More

My husband and I stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon. The hotel is beautiful and the service is amazing. They knew it was our honeymoon so we arrived to a bottle of champagne and delicious desserts. The bathroom is absolutely beautiful with a huge tub. The hotel has drivers to take you wherever you want to go... More

We spent 5 nights in a rooftop luxury room and from the minute we arrrived we knew we had picked a great hotel. The informal reception area is very professional and welcoming and the whole hotel is elegant. The little touches on the fourth floor like water, fruit juice etc are a nice bonus and the Spa is great -... More

Amazing Grace How sweet th' hotel... In September my wife and I came to Cape Town for the first part of our two-week honeymoon. Unfortunately our enjoyment was blighted upon arrival at the airport when we discovered that South African Airways had lost both pieces of luggage in London. After fifteen months of planning and such a happy wedding, this... More

Recently returned from a 5 night stay here in one of the rooftop terrace rooms. The terrace itself is a little small, but no problem for a sundowner or two. Staff are very professional and, on the one occasion they did mess up a dinner reservation for us at Ginja, they did at least handle the situation well and booked... More

An amazing hotel with outstanding service. My husband and I stayed here for 3 days and loved the hotel. You don't need to leave the hotel to enjoy Cape Town. Would recommend!

What a great hotel !! Staff so welcoming and friendly from reception staff to doormen. Rooms good size and very clean. I was very impressed with the attention to detail in all aspects of this hotel. Breakfasts were great with good selection. Location was excellent as right at waterfront in the middle of things. Great start to our SA holiday!!
