The name says it all. The Cape Grace embodies elegance, comfort and unparalleled service in Cape Town. Our room was sumptuous in every way- from the decor to the amount of space to the view of the marina and Table Mountain.The staff is friendly and out to make one's stay the most pleasurable possible. Smiles are de rigeur. I made my reservations through American Express and without prompting was given a room upgrade and a late checkout (4PM!) which worked out really well because I was able to spend my last morning at the Kirstenbosch Gardens then return for lunch and a shower before the drive to the airport.
It was way after closing when I decided on my last night that I needed some items from the boutique. No problem, the staff arranged to make the purchase possible. The hotel offers BMW shuttles to any destination within a reasonable radius from the hotel. The location is in a very safe section of the city with restaurants, shopping, helicopter rides and trips to Robben Island within walking distance. One should not miss afternoon tea in the library or dinner at Signal restaurant, whose team is run by the talented Chef Malika van Reenen. This last, accompanied by wines from the Cape's vineyards, was one of the most enjoyable I have ever experienced. Take it from one that has been fortunate enough to have experienced meals prepared by the likes of Adria, Alleno, Achatz and Bocuse. All in all, it was a wonderful finale to be so pampered after more than a a week on safari. And oh, WiFi is free!
I did not use the spa or swimming pool but they appeared rather inviting.
