What a lovely hotel - so well situated for exploring Cape Town and right on the v&a waterfront. The views from the hotel are breath-taking. The staff could not be more helpful, the restaurant is really excellent and there is a great bar that overlooks the Marina. We cannot recommend this hotel enough - it really is 5 star and... More

Personal service is what counts here, this is a six star hotel and every conceivable service to match is well deserved reputation. The room s are a good size and one can easily spot the seals basking on the pontoons in the harbour from the balcony windows. Food served in the restaurants are without doubt of the highest calibre, but... More

Impeccable service, extremely helpful and friendly, great breakfast in the morning and tea in the afternoon. In addition to all that Cape Town has to offer, we also took day trips out to the...

We were at the Cape Grace for 7 nights and have to say the service is faultless. We have been lucky enough to have stayed at a number of first rate hotels over the years, but the friendly and helpful nature of the staff and service throughout here blew our minds.

It is on the popular Waterfront with good view of the bay, especially from the pooldeck restruarant (which is also a good spot from which to watch the Jazz (entertainment) if there are too many non-residence down stairs.

My wife and I stayed at Cape Grace for 5 nights in November. The hotel is situated next to the V&A waterfront which has plenty of shopping and mid range restaurants, and it has easy access to the main roads around Cape Town - it takes about 15 minutes to drive to Camps Bay, Constantia, Woodstock etc. The quality of...
