“Life done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

What a wonderful introduction to South Africa! We've stayed in many places over the years but none come close to the Cape Grace. With the exception of wifi, everything at the Cape Grace was done to perfection. The staff, the rooms, the food, the location all are perfect.

Expensive yes, but worth every penny. (err, Rand).

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side may be a little quieter and get the sun a little later.

We stayed at the Cape Grace for 6 nights, if you have a busy schedule and day trips, you will find enough restaurant on the Waterfront to have diner and never use the same place. The service at the hotel was exceeding all expectations from the Chambermaid, doormen, reception, concierge, chauffeurs,.... the breakfast was esquisite and the staff could do anymore for you. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Great service, friendly, thorough and fast.
They set up fabulous tours, food was good, and easy to get to from airport. They picked us up in Series 7 or 8 BMW

Great location. Get a room w balcony view of harbor or table top mountain.

Also if you are a scuba diver try a dive in the area. Water is cold and bit murky but interesting. Good chance u will see whales or dolphins from boat. We came up from dive just as a pod of dolphins (hundreds of them) came through. Most incredible site I have ever seen.

We stayed 4 nights at the Cape Grace, start of our first SA journey. It's a lovely hotel close to the Victoria waterfront shops, restaurants and bars with live music. Our room was spacious with 2 balconies, great view of the Table Mountain and the marina. Staffs were courteous and charming. Breakfast was included in the price and they had a good selection of hot and cold breakfast. We absolutely loved Cape Town and hope to return.

We spent 5 days at the Cape Grace in November and it was perfect. Staff were beyond friendly and helpful, the bar was a great evening escape and the breakfast was first class. Our breakfast server remembered all our likes and dislikes from the day before and gave us all the right suggestions each morning! Great location, cant be beat!

We stayed here in October and were very pleased with our room and the service. We didn't even have the best room but it was beautifully decorated, the bath was super large and the toiletries were just luxourious.
Breakfast was very good and plentiful. The bartender was wonderful and made sure we had a nice light meal that we wanted.
Nice location too.

Lovely hotel decorated in a relaxed colonial style.Room was a good size with views of the marina and table mountain. Perfect position in that it is on the fringe of the tourist waterfront area. so not noisy but just a two minute walk to the action. Great service,great food and great wine. The girls in the spa were highly praised by my wife.
