“Wonderful-the best of Cape Town”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

Where to start.....from arriving at the hotel at 11pm, tired, hungry, stiff....a long flight...the staff welcomed us and made our stay at cape grace one of the best city hotels we have been to. Great room with a view and balcony, bed was very comfortable, nice and soft linens, roomy bathroom, bathtub that fills up pronto, gym, we had relaxing, really good massages, room service was prompt, breakfast was perfect....as I said before this is a great city hotel. The concierge staff helped to organize sight seeing, dinner reservations, tours etc they didn't miss a beat and took care of everything. Super group of employees with the single goal of making your stay the best it could possibly be. You will not be disappointed.

During a recent trip to Cape Town we stayed at the Cape Grace Hotel on the water front. It is beautiful. Lovely furnishings, excellent service, friendly staff and the food in the restaurant was second to none. This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in worldwide and we would love to stay there again sometime in the future. Go there, you won't be disappointed.

Grace is the right word to describe this beautiful hotel. From the entrance to the lobby, it's decorated with classical style and high quality furnishings, with warm welcoming atmosphere by the staff. The rooms are quite spacious with separate hallway with makeup vanity, opening to the nicely sized double sink bathroom, with a separate toilet. The views of our rooms facing the table mountain and the marina was amazing! Beds very comfortable with wifi in the room.
The breakfast was ok, it could have more and better selections for a hotel in such high caliber.
Location is very good within minutes away from the V&A water front shops, restaurants and few markets. After going around this beautiful city, I believe this hotel is the best choice. The complimentary driver with a brand new BMW, was an icing on the cake.
The staff will go out of their way to help you with any thing you need.

Room Tip: Go for the rooms with the view of the marina and the Table mountain, is worth the extra money.

We found this hotel to be fine with attentive and friendly staff. It has a very good location on the water and we felt it was a safe area to walk around. Meal and bar service were slow and the food was just average.

Without a doubt "a must do" , experience. From the moment of being picked up from the airport by the Cape Grace courtesy car, to arriving being greeted with the old world charm yet familiarity of "coming home".
Although not modern, the amenities are fabulous and whilst being given "the tour" , delighted in all the various quirks and nooks and crannies to explore.
There's an abundance of culture and history to glean from the staff and locals as you breath in perhaps one of the most picturesque scenes the world has to offer.
Dining is bellisimo ! Eclectic, modern, and yet at 3 in the morning if you find yourself in the library hungry, you'll have no problem in ordering up a sandwich or two !
What are you waiting for ? Go!

We really enjoyed this hotel. It's in a perfect location to base yourself to see all of the sights. The hotel is situated right on the V&A Waterfront, so plenty to do within walking distance, with amazing selection of restaurants and stores. We stayed in adjoining suites and the rooms were beautifully appointed. Very clean and modern hotel with excellent service. We had a beautiful view of the marina from our rooms which was really nice. We rented a car from Europe Car whilst there and they delivered the car right to the hotel's parking lot, couldn't be any easier. Driving to see the penguins at Boulder Beach or driving to Table Mountain was easy from the hotel and I would recommend doing so as it's a beautiful drive along the coast. Cape Town is such a beautiful city and I believe this is the best hotel to stay to explore it fully.

The hotel is wonderful- all services related to this stay. The continental breakfast is excellent. The location next to the wharf is great with views of the marina and Table Mountain. The extras include cars to get you to restaurants and other sites to see. The concierge service is well-versed in all of the attractions, restaurants, etc. The rooms are spacious, as well.
