First the good: we stayed in a beautiful room which had a view of Table Mountain. The room was spacious, the bed extremely comfortable, and the bathroom modern, with...

In detail: I’d booked and...

We stayed 3 nights at the Cape Grace close to downturn and the V& A Waterfront. The hotel is a gem from its beautifully appointed public rooms to its spacious, comfortable and elegant hotel rooms. It is more than worthy of its 5 star rating and its friendly & professional staff are what make it even more special. Everyone goes...
