Cape Grace has a prime position on the waterfront. It has 4 levels. One way looks towards Table Mountain the other where the entrance is towards the local fishing fleet. A clean safe area with lots to do nearby.. If you want a peaceful sleep with your window open the entrance side is definitely not for you. The noise from the street carries as people continually walk past and the noise from the marina will constantly leave you feeling sleep deprived. Disappointing as an enquiry on checkin assured otherwise and a request for a room change after one night was treated with disdain as the hotel was apparently fully booked. For a 5 star hotel their guests should be treated with 5 star respect too. A no no for next time.

Very nice location. One can walk to the V & A Waterfront shopping center from the hotel.
The included breakfast is very nice.
Pleasant and helpful staff of people. Reggie, the Concierge, arranged private day tours for our group. It was nice having a driver take us around the area.
The hotel restaurant serves great evening meals.
However, there is room for improvement in the room service dinner menu. We ordered room service one evening and the food was very cold. They need to get a heated cart for hot food items.
Our suite was very clean and spacious. Enjoyed having all that space for our group.
The rooms are very expensive.

The room and service were excellent, as you'd expect from a five-star hotel. The receptionist efficiently and graciously helped us with arranging car service to restauants and tickets for Cape Town attractions. Breakfasts were excellent. But, with all that, it is the location that really makes this a top-flight hotel.

Cape Grace Hotel is located in the V & A Waterfront area which is a great place to stay with plenty of things to do. The area is clean and safe with many fine restaurants, shopping and night life. The hotel is decorated on a historical theme of the Cape with large modern, clean and comfortable rooms. Our room was on the top floor (4th) with a balcony over looking a marina and Table Mountain. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our rooms came with breakfast which consisted of continental buffet or a full menu from which to order from. Will stay there again when visiting C T.

Location is really the best thing the hotel has going for it. As far as five-star it has all the requirements to meet ones expectations. However, the service was not what we wanted from a luxury property.
