This was my wife's and my first visit to South Africa. Our stay was part of my wife's birthday celebration. It is located is a secure part of Cape Town, and is ideally located for the many attractions, within the area. All the staff were friendly and welcoming. Sheba, at reception, and Jacques, one of the concierge, were particularly helpful...

I am sure the (lack of) quality of the other hotels we stayed at during our trip through SA had something to do with it, but this was "heaven"! Excellent/welcoming staff! Unusual requests were made easy! Excellent food! Perfect location! I want to go back!

We had stayed here once before and our return visit was just as good an experience. We had a lovely harbour view room which was very comfortable. Breakfast and dinner in the restaurant were very good and there was a great wine list. Pool a little small and drinks at the pool cafe were not consistently measured and the explanations...

I now understand why Cape Grace was awarded ''The best hotel in Africa''! There is just nothing you may want to ask the hotel to make up for. They give you more services than you may ever expect of them. You even have a BMW/Mercedes Benz with a driver for as far as 10kilometres from the school for any need...

My wife and I run a small travel company and we have been fortunate to spend five nights here in January each of the past 7 years. The level of customer service is mind boggling. One of our guests needed a prescription and while we were out for the day, the doctor faxed her prescription over and a staff member...

We spent the first few nights of our honeymoon at this spectacular hotel near the waterfront in Cape Town. The service is 2nd to none. It is a world class hotel and our stay was sublime. The staff are friendly, courteous and happy - nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are large, clean, fully equipped and contain everything you...

My husband and I stayed at Cape Grace for the second part of our honeymoon after staying for a week at the Four Seasons in Mauritius. The Four Seasons was amazing and I was slightly nervous to see whether Cape Grace would live up to the standard - I should not have worried! Put simply Cape Grace is one of...

We stayed at the Cape Grace over New years 2017 and it was a wonderful experience. The staff truly do go above and beyond - no matter what we asked, they came through. The rooms are beautiful and many of them have beautiful views. The spa and gym are both lovely and the location is really fantastic, as it is...

We have stayed in wonderful hotels throughout the world but Cape Grace beats them all for service,style,comfort and luxury.The rooms are fabulous and the decor is elegant and stylish. The location of the hotel could not be better as it is a stone's throw from the V&A Waterfront. A memorable stay and we hope to return one day.

Stayed here in December as solo traveller and this hotel was the most luxurious that I experienced in South Africa. The Xmas decorations were stunning, very class! There were Xmas treats on every floor for guests to help themselves. My room was well appointed and very comfortable, with sufficient amenities. Breakfast each morning was excellent, although some of the waiting...
