This place was phenomenal, start to finish. The property is ideally located in the waterfront, offering lots of action within walking distance. The room was gorgeous and the breakfast above and beyond. This is a place that's built for royalty.

Perfect Place in Capetown. Nothing bad to say. The three bedroom family suite was terrific and the food in the hotel was also terrific. The people couldn't be nicer. The gym was fine as was the SPA. The concierge was also very knowledgeable and helpful.

We were in South Africa on business, with rather short notice. The Cape Grace was a completely pleasant surprise. On arrival, our group was ushered into the board room for refreshments and an easy check-in experience. I can't tell if I had the luxury or superior room category but I can tell you my room was absolutely lovely, on the...

We spent 4 nights at the Cape Grace during our recent vacation in Africa. The hotel is well located and is walking distance to all the attractions at the waterfront. The setting is elegant without being pretentious. The rooms are spacious and quiet with luxurious bedding and comfortable beds and good quality toiletries .Breakfast has everything you could wish for...

Beautiful hotel right in the heart of the V&A waterfront. We were greeted with glasses of wine (for us) and cups of hot cocoa (for the kids) to tide us over while we checked in. The two bedroom suite was beautiful and well-stocked with coffee, milk, juice, and fresh fruit. There was a complimentary car service to restaurants (just coordinate...

We stayed at the Cape Grace at the end of our two week Namibian Safari tour. The creature comforts of a top-notch urban hotel were a wonderful treat after our days of adventurous but taxing dusty Land Cruiser rides in the Namibian Desert and bumpy Caravan flights between gravel landing strips. The hotel is nicely situated in the bustling but...

False advertising: We saw glamorous and attractive images of the high tea on the internet. The internet advertised a selection of savoury and sweet nibbles. A quarter of what was advertised arrived on our plates. I must say that all the food we ate was very nice . We expected traditional South Africa goods.

I had the privilege of staying at the Cape Grace Hotel for 2 nights in June. The hotel is truly the epitome of 5-star luxury! Upon our arrival we were given a warm welcome by the staff in the lobby , and were offered a glass of their delectable homemade rooibos iced-tea...delicious! The lobby is gorgeous, and delivers a feeling...

Just stayed here for the third time and it continues to be very well run. The staff are excellent. I tried to get a late checkout for 3 pm and was told it could be accommodated….as long as I paid a R1000 fee. Really? As Amex Centurian, I thought a late checkout was one of the features. Seems kind of...

Had a wonderful lunch today. The fish & chips was great! Light, crispy batter and the perfect portion size. Library restaurant is quiet and overlooks the yachts in the marina. Service is efficient and refined. Perfect place for a relaxed lunch.
