Just stayed here for the third time and it continues to be very well run. The staff are excellent. I tried to get a late checkout for 3 pm and was told it could be accommodated….as long as I paid a R1000 fee. Really? As Amex Centurian, I thought a late checkout was one of the features. Seems kind of...

Had a wonderful lunch today. The fish & chips was great! Light, crispy batter and the perfect portion size. Library restaurant is quiet and overlooks the yachts in the marina. Service is efficient and refined. Perfect place for a relaxed lunch.

Our family group of 16 stayed at the beautiful Cape Grace for 3 nights in June 2015. The staff was ready for our arrival and made check in a breeze! The mountain-view rooms were large, and the views were gorgeous. Our rate included breakfast, which we enjoyed each morning. There were plenty of restaurants and shopping areas within walking distance....

This hotel enabled my family and I to have a very authentic feel of South Africa culture. We had a 3 bedroom suite which was beautifully decorated and service was impeccable. Highly recommend this hotel.

I have never experienced hospitality at this level. From the moment we arrived and the doorman said "Welcome Home" to the time we had to leave, reluctantly, I can honestly say this is THE BEST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN. The staff are so good at their jobs, always carry a friendly smile and are eager to please. The...

We had signed up for a tour that started with two days at the Cape Grace. We wanted to add two more days in Cape Town, so we arranged to increase the stay to four days. We were not disappointed! The Cape Grace is a very elegant hotel situated in a perfect location - on the marina. It was a...

I have stayed here twice and will be returning again later this year. I cant fault the rooms or the service. I only ate in the restaurant once but it was very good. The hotel location is perfect and offers lovely view from any room. Close to the shops and restaurants, with a great choice of both but not too...

It is beautifully appointed with amazing service. They trip over themselves to make you comfortable. Just understand that this is South Africa where location is everything. This area is very safe. It has private security. No so in downtown Cape Town. This town has severe unemployment, the government recognizes squatters rights. You see whole areas of corrugated lean-to sheds where...
