Cape Grace is a world class hotel. The room we had was spacious with a balcony overlooking the harbor. It had all the amenities one would expect of a luxury hotel. Welcoming staff was warm and friendly. The concierge was helpful setting up dinning reservations and chauffeur support to and from the dining venues. The restaurant, Signal, offered exceptional food...

This is a lovely hotel with great service! The breakfast (included with our stay) was awesome -fresh, lots of variety and delicious! Great on-site food and beverage outlets, but also a short walk to local restaurants, shopping, attractions. The hotel was doing some pool renovations, and compensated us for the inconvenience with a free dinner (unexpected, but appreciated); the meal...

Hi, Second stay at the Cape Grace in two years. Nice area around the waterfront. Rear facing rooms have the best view of a yachting Marina. Beds are VERY comfortable with superb linen. It's so good you'll notice. But the main thing is, the staff get to know you. Address you by your surname and are always on hand to...

I've been going to the Cape Grace since 1997. And there is a good reason: it is simply the best. A hotel is (of course) about the right bed and shower, to have a good rest/night's sleep. But when it comes to all the other bits and pieces, that is where the real differences start to transpire. One telling tale...

A cheerful group of porters greets guests as they arrive at the lovely Cape Grace. Lovely vases of proteas decorate the tables in the lobby. A friendly concierge stands ready to assist. And that's just the first five minutes of our experience at the Cape Grace. The Cape Grace is a beautiful hotel with elegant yet comfortable rooms and an...
