From the moment you step out of your taxi, the welcome, reception and service are exemplary. Add to this gracious furnishings, wonderful linen, cleanliness and a terrific kitchen, why would one stay anywhere else? The staff were always cheerful, engaging and helpful. All the amenities work, such as the hair dryer, prompt laundry service, wifi, each without a hassle. If...

I visited the Cape Grace Hotel several months ago, much to my surprise it was the best hotel experience I've ever had. The staff and associated vendors were perfect from our pick-up at the airport to return trip. To be greeted by name and welcomed back to the property was a nice touch and a hint at the attention to...

We were staying for three nights as a party of two adults and a six year old boy. The service started with complimentary transfer from the airport to the hotel, where the doormen already knew our youngster's name, making him feel special right from the off. Checking in over a freshly made and extremely refreshing iced tea, we learned all...

Cape Grace Hotel was the first place I stayed when traveling through South Africa. I was fortunate to stay at Cape Grace at the beginning on an epic journey. I stayed there while visiting Cape Town and the wineries of the area, before taking the Blue Train to Jo-burg, then on to Botswana and Zimbabwe. As wonderful as the rest...

Excellent hotel , with beautiful views and wonderful staff. Our 4 children loved the pool and the proximity to the V&A waterfront. Felt very at home in an apartment and he housekeeping staff did an excellent job! The treats left for the children were an added bonus and made our 5 year old daughter feel very special , thank you!...

My wife and I spent 2 days here and could not say enough good things about the hotel and the staff. The bar was a really neat spot to grab a drink and snacks before dinner, and the service was top notch. From the bellman to the maids, we were made to feel right at home after a long trip....

The public areas and the guest rooms are beautiful. The location is very convenient. The staff volunteered extra help cheerfully. The breakfast service has a lot of options-- including eggs Benedict that became addictive. PS The Comedy Club nearby is fun-- accents are sometimes difficult at least for Americans and you miss some of the more topical jokes, but the...

We stayed 4 nights at the Cape Grace in a 2 bedroom suite with views across to Table Mountain. From check in to check out, the friendliness of the staff did not waiver. The decor is 90's chic but still lovely. The bathrooms are large and well appointed and we had a kitchenette to mix our cocktails which were taken...

The staff at this hotel are unbelievable! We last visited in February and were greeted by Jacques with 'nice to see you back Mr & Mrs ...' The position of the hotel is perfect, on the Waterfront with a Waterfront view on one side and a Table Mountain View on the other. Room large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast very good.
