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...

From the very first contact the staff and every aspect of the Cape Grace is welcoming, stylish and five star. I was greeted like an an old friend and offered iced tea during the check in, my bag was already in the room and everyone is always smiling, helpful and guest focused without being focused on tipping like some countries!...

Although this hotel has a lot to offer, and is well situated, they are not prepared to compromise their cancellation policy, even in the event of hospitalisation. Like most hotels, there is a 100 % forfeiture in the event of a stay being cancelled within 7 days of the stay. Fair enough. In February my family was booked to fly...

The Cape Grace is widely considered among the top hotels in Cape Town and the reputation is well deserved. If you’re looking for European-style, 5-star luxury in the heart of the city, then the Cape Grace is a perfect option. The Cape Grace comes with all the amenities and service one would expect from a luxury property. Like any great...

Cape Grace is amazing, from the service to the staff. Most of the staff knew my name very quickly. The views are magnificent and the accommodation is wonderful. The staff aims to please. The afternoon teas were delightful and main courses supreme.

The Cape Grace is a charming hotel with superb views of both table mountain and the waterfront. The rooms are luxurious and tasteful- all of the accommodations are up-to-date. The food is wonderful (especially the extensive breakfast buffet), and the environment is one that allows for work and for play. The hotel is very comfortable- no "wow factor", but certainly...

My boyfriend and our infant daughter stayed here for almost a week and enjoyed every moment!

This was our fourth visit to this formerly outstanding hotel. The pickup from the airport was good, but arrival and checkin left a lot to be desired. I had requested an early checkin some months before and on arrival was told this would be prioritized. We explained we would go and sit in the Bascule Bar and the receptionist said...
