Cape Grace
Ranked #7 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 29, 2011

Right in the middle of V&A waterfront this hotel was… WOW!!. The hotel had an old charm of its own. Cape Grace had very large spacious rooms, tastefully done. The staff of the hotel was very friendly, and more than ready to help you with all the queries one would have. Complementary Taxi services were also offered by the hotel to take us around Cape Town. A fantastic breakfast was served by the poolside to kick start the day and in the evenings they organized lovely tea in the library a perfect way for one to enjoy the evening. Its 2 mins walk to the V & A waterfront and nearby shopping centers, where all the buzz is. Quite expensive but, well worth the money for a stay at a luxurious boutique hotel and great quality service.

My daughter and I stayed at the Cape Grace - Sept 2 -6 2011 - the level of detail and attention was extraordinary. The location of the hotel could not be better. The rooms perfect, the little details - the breakfast buffet (great granola!), the concierge's recommendations - the bar overlooking the docks... everything... made for a fantastic start to our 18 days in Africa! I have stayed in many a hotel around the world - I would rank the Cape Grace at the top!

Room Tip: not a bad room in the hotel -- either side overlooks the pristine sparkling working harbor, with sea...

the cape grace is very much u wud expect from a hotel that is part of the LHW. Top class service, friendly, warm and luxuriuos all at the same time. if u decide to spoil urself once in a while

then do it at the cape grace. Within walking distance of the Waterfront with all its restaurants and shops. beautiful view over the waterfront and Table Mountain. Breakfast is served The

restaurant offers excellent cuisine but is overpriced. The shops and restaurants along the waterfront are within close proximity and in a few minutes on foot. It does not get better!

My wife and I stayed at the Cape Grace from 8-13 September 2011. We found it a great hotel and wonderful experience. The room was spacious, quiet with a great view. The staff was helpful, courteous and referred to us by name after checkin. The BMW limo service was a very nice extra that we took advantage of.

Room Tip: I believe all of the rooms are good, but I would request Marina or Table Mountain view.

We had stayed here before, good memories. This time the room was vastly overpriced for its size, but the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel itself is very nice, but this is not a place to go if you want to save a little money. I believe there are less expensive hotels or lodges in the area just as nice, or nicer.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a good view, and the waterfront is fabulous. But don't be afraid to complain...
