So I could wax lyrical about all the wonderful things about this hotel that others already have told ou about -- the free car service to anywhere in the city (within reason), the classy rooms, the comfy and indulgent beds, the gorgeous views... But instead I'm going to tell you a story about how crazy I am and how cool... More

Just returned from 5 nts at the Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town. As a travel agent, I have stayed at some of the best hotels in the world and I must say this hotel tops them all. Beginning with the excellent location directly on the waterfront and views to die for. From the minute we were greeted at the... More

I have recently returned from my second visit to the wonderful Cape Grace hotel in Cape Town. This time I was in one of the penthouse suites. This is honestly the best five star hotel I’ve stayed in, anywhere in the world. The food (prepared by Malika Van Reenen) was incredible. The location of the hotel is the best in... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my sister, and parents during a break to Cape Town. My dad has stayed at this hotel many times before and he rates it as one of the best in the world. Decor is traditional and beautiful, rooms are pristine, location couldnt be better, and the service is first class. Attention to detail... More

This is a modern hotel with a mellow interior with excellent staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The setting is basically quayside with easy walking access to really good restaurants and uninspiring shops within a huge complex of malls. The breakfasts were up to the standard expected of such a hotel. We chose to eat dinner in the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in February and everything was perfect. The check-in was efficient and friendly and from that point, all the staff went out of the way to be helpful. The staff who attended the room were fantastic as were the staff in the restaurant where we enjoyed breakfasts and 2 dinners. Wish we could have stayed longer................

Everyone who worked at the hotel was extra friendly and greeted us by name each time we passed. Their smiles and warmth were contagious and we started greeting them by name also. We stayed for six days and I wished we could have stayed longer.

My wife and I were recently fortunate enough to stay in the Cape Grace for 5 nights. It was a faultless experience and we will be returning. Possibly the best hotel ensemble I have ever encountered - the staff make your stay an absolute pleasure. Treat yourself !

Perfection cannot be improved upon! We stayed just this month at the Cape Grace at the start of our tour of South Africa. What a start to an amazing holiday.! We had room 417 Roof terrace and the view amazing. The room was large and I liked the separate wardrobe and dressing area. The bathroom was very luxurious with excellent... More
