“Elegance under the Table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed four nights in this extraordinary hotel prior to us embarking in a Cross Atlantic cruise. The hotel was in the best location for our delightful stay in Cape Town. Room with all the necessities and luxuries you will find in the best hotels, we had an explendid view of Table Mountain from our window-balcony. Breakfasts and supper tops... Staff courteous and amicable to the extremes... Super great place!

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed here several times and tried the other luxury alternatives in Cape Town, this outdoes the lot and ticks every box. Located within the V&A gives it a very safe feel yet you can walk around after dark. Small enough to be intimate, but with scale to deliver the essentials. The pool is small but private and comfortable. The rooms are perfect with considerable natural light and nice views over the harbour and mountains. A winner all round.

Loved this graceful, beautifully appointed hotel. Stayed 4 nights overlooking the marina and the mountain (which was clear for three of the days). Great, safe place to stay right on V & A.
The restaurant was first class and the food was delicious.
Room was spacious and elegant, with everything working.
Would go back in a heart beat
Book the hotel BMW to go to the mountain
The celeriac and truffle soup is delicious as is the truffle pototoes

Simply faultless from beginning to end, this establishment is truly wonderful, finest location, amazing food and the breakfast - well I wish I could return each morning.

Wonderful and thank you to all that made the stay so enjoyable.

we stayed here of 2 nights before a 26 day classic car rally and returned on the last night. Luxury on both stays. It has lovely rooms, good meals and great staff. Great location for the marina and V&A Waterfront - many things to see, and many restaurants close by.

Room Tip: choose the marina side over the road side. we were woken by a trawler leaving early one morning.

We spent three nights at this hotel to celebrate the end of our first African safari and our wedding anniversary. Good location with a wonderful view of the marina and Table Mountain...the elegance and charm of the hotel was apparent as soon as we walked into the lobby. Even if we were tired from a 5 hour plane delay, it felt good to walk into this hotel and immediately feel welcome and at home (even at 1:30am). They surprised us with a bottle of champagne and chocolates which helped us forget the stress of the entire day's air travels. We didn't get to dine at the restaurants on the property except for breakfast which was impeccable. We will definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: ASk for a room facing the marina and table mountain.

We stayed at Cape Grace from May 8 to 12 with a Tauck trip. What a wonderful hotel. Not only was the hotel beautiful, but the staff was incredible. What service. The food was sensational also. The place to stay in Cape Town.
