Elegant and refined, these are two of the many adjectives that can describe Cape Grace. Our comfortable and tastefully decorated suite offered wonderful views of the harbor and the V & A waterfront. The service is absolutely impeccable. The concierge, Hoon or Leezel, helped us with all our restaurant reservations, making great recommendations. The hotel car service is very convenient and graciously offered to hotel guests. The restaurant staff's only wish is to make your visit at "Signal" unforgettable. A delightful hotel we will be glad to call home on our next visit to Cape Town.

The Cape Grace Hotel has perhaps the ultimate endorsement, that of Secret Agent 007 in the re-imagined James Bond novel Carte Blanche. And a well earned one at that. The Cape Grace is elegant, sumptuous, and yet somehow understated. The rooms are well appointed, the harbor and mountain views are magnificent, the service is impeccable, and the breakfast brunch is world class. The hotel is conveniently located a five minute walk from tourist shops on the waterfront, and the more elegant Victoria and Alfred shopping mall. We loved our visit to Cape Town, and when we return, the Cape Grace is where we will stay.

Room Tip: Try for a room with a Table Mountain View. Harbor views are obtainable on either side of the hotel.

Allow yourself to be seduced by the breathtaking beauty of Cape Town. The Mother City has so much to offer and what better way than to stay in one of the hotels at the V&A Waterfront.

We occupied three rooms (two of the rooms were inter-leading) in the Cape Grace Hotel and found the hotel to be just perfect. We stayed on the ground floor and had a fantastic view over the yachts and Table Mountain.

The Cape Grace offers a combination of modern luxury and local culture. The rooms were stylish, spacious and truly five-star.

Even though we rented a car at Cape Town International Airport (we were six people), we parked the car at the hotel and were able to walk everywhere.

When traveling in South Africa, one needs to put “safety” above anything else. We felt safe and walked to the V&A Waterfront… a must for “retail therapy”… We went to the movies, the shops, the ferris wheel and we also walked to the Two Oceans Aquarium where we had a really nice meal. The City Site seeing busses are also within walking distance from the hotel and there is no need to be a bit “snobbish” about taking it (like we may have been) as they are perfectly great!

The Concierge Services will also assist with transportation to Table Mountain… please note that you can book your tickets online (valid for almost a week) and have it printed at the hotel, as well. Before planning a visit to Table Mountain, you need to ask the Concierge to make sure (or look it up on the internet) that Table Mountain is open, as they close it regularly due to the strong winds. Eventually we went during the late afternoon and found the sun set and restaurant on the mountain to be wonderful. Do NOT drive to Table Mountain by yourself. There is no parking and you will have to walk very far – rather have the Hotel drop you off or take the tourist bus. If you’d like to take the foot path up Table Mountain, rather do it with a guide as it may not be safe to do it by yourself or in a small group… especially if you are a tourist. We also visited “Die Kasteel” (Castle) which is great and were not impressed with the tours to Robin Island… rather walk on the beach and feel the sand underneath your toes.

The staff at the Cape Grace Hotel is specially trained in the finest manners. They are friendly, they are kind and they reminded me of the lovely people at The Ritz.

The meals in the restaurant was lovely and the breakfast not outstanding, but still great enough.

The SPA is a must. I had my hair done and we also enjoyed massages for most of the family members. They are pricy, but worth the money.

Room service ~ super fantastic and they try to meet all your needs. The staff also handed out small gifts to the guests and the atmosphere and decorations during the Christmas Holidays were just wonderful.

We cannot wait to return to The Cape Grace Hotel.

My wife and I spent her celebration of a special birthday here. The views of Table Mountain in the background were lovely. The staff were excellent never forgetting our name and ensured they catered for our every whim. The food was impeccable as well as the service. Located on the V and A Waterfront a short stroll brings you to the vast array of shops and restaurants. Close to Cape Town central the hotel is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Both views are great either the working harbour or the view of Table Mountain

What a wonderful hotel. Expensive it may be but boy does it deliver (although the food and drink reflect how inexpensive Cape Town and South Africa are; first 5 star hotel where I've felt comfortable about not taking out a mortgage when opening the mini-bar!). Delicious rooms and wonderful food. Staff that our public service could only dream about. All without being pretentious or snobby...and a special mention for the wonderful barman and the proper concierge desk. Its location is simply the cherry on top.

Room Tip: All good from what I can ascertain
