The Cape Grace was a great base for exploring Cape Town during my short visit. I highly recommend it for couples looking for an elegant, romantic place to stay in Cape Town. Quick and easy airport transfer, friendly welcome at the door and reception, and helpful concierge--it was 5-star service all around. The hotel is located on the Victoria and...

This is a boutique hotel. So it has a cosy comfortable feel about it. Everywhere in this hotel spells quiet elegance. The rooms are nicely decorated, there is lack of amenities. Wi fi is complementary and connects well. We stayed at the Roof Terrace room with a great view over the marina and Table Mountain. As a touch of class,...

The Cape Grace was one of the most elegant hotels we've stayed in. The rooms were large and very well equipped. Each room had a balcony. We overlooked the marina and enjoyed having our happy hour out there each day. The location was perfect! Right on the waterfront, but not in the midst of tourists. The staff was amazing. The...

We had a lovely stay at the Cape Grace in September. Our room was comfortable and well decorated, and the bathroom was great with double sinks, tub, separate shower and enclosed toilet. The view of the harbor was gorgeous. Breakfast included both a buffet with a huge variety of delicious choices, as well as hot items to order off the...

The Cape Grace is ideally located at the V and A Waterfront. You can walk to many bars, restaurants, stores and the Robben Island Ferry. The staff are all welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful - especially the concierge. The restaurant offers interesting and fresh food, well presented and the wine list is extensive enough to cater for all tastes. The rooms...

The hotel is located on the Cape Town Harbor within a sort of Disneyfied touristy area of shops, restaurants and pubs. It boasts spectacular views of the harbor and table mountain as well as Lions Head. The rooms had French doors that opened onto a railing. One could leave these open at night for plenty of fresh air - as...

From 12-16 Sep 15 The Meals in the restaurant are excellent and their chef is to be congratulated – some of the best cuisine we had on the tour. The hotel itself and the staff are excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend that you stay there. We mark it 4/5* due to the windows and bar - see...

The Cape Grace Hotel is a luxurious hotel located in a prime position at the V&A Waterfront. It is in walking decision to the main area but far enough away to avoid the hustle and noise. The in-house restaurant is fantastic and the staff are all extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. We had a great view of table mountain and...

Cape Grace hotel was a gorgeous hotel in Cape Town. It was located in such a great place that you could walk anywhere. Shopping, restaurants and Table Mountain were all close. The rooms were beautifully decorated. The service and food were also excellent.

Having spent 4 days at Cape Grace at the V&A in Cape Town I can recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be pampered. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were special and so it proved to be! The decor was marvelous with antiques spread throughout and the luxurious feel of the hotel was evident throughout....
