We stayed 4 nights here in huge room with balcony and views of the marina and table mountain. The staff were very helpful throughout. We used the courtesy limo service where we could, and it was excellent. The concierge arranged restaurants for us, but I have to say the best food we had was in the Signal restaurant in the...

We spent 4 nights at Cape Grace after an African hunting trip. It was just the luxury we needed after 5 days in the bush. The property is beautiful. Very nicely appointed, amazing furniture and décor. The restaurants were wonderful, brunch each morning at Signal had endless options. We even had a Whiskey tasting at Bascule. I think I learned...

We stayed in this wonderful hotel for three nights, it is quite simply exceptional. The staff are unfailingly polite, and calling guests by name is well crafted. The food in Signal is of a very high standard, as is the quality of tapas in the Bascule bar. The breakfast buffet was first rate, despite the hotel being exceptionally busy due...

The hotel staff and the amenities are always excellent. Its' position, at the V&A Waterfront is just right. There is a choice of Waterfront view or Table Mountain View. The food is excellent and, if anything, has improved from last year. I very much hope to return.

Excellent hotel in all respects, most of all because of the absolutely fantastic staff who can't do enough to help-both friendly and really professional. Both of the drivers of their courtesy shuttle service have been with Cape Grace over 10 years and spoke of what a great company it was to work for and how well they treat the staff-it...

We recently spent four nights at the Cape Grace. The location is perfect for exploring the waterfront area. The staff however is what makes this hotel special: Courteous, professional, attentive. They were there to meet whatever needs we had. The bar is a wonderful place to meet friends for a drink and one must try their springbok: not "gamey" in...

My husband booked me a surprise trip to South Africa for a significant birthday. The Cape Grace made a special birthday extraordinary. Their facilities are second to none, their people some of the friendliest I have ever encountered, and their food absolutely sumptuous. We were only there for 8 days, when I become a millionaire we will go and live...

This was our third stay at the Cape Grace and it continues to excel. Staff were as attentive as ever and nothing was too much trouble. The swimming pool has been revamped since our last visit. With privacy enhanced but pool size reduced. We had a wonderful meal - The Tasting menu - in Signal although the quality of wines...

We spent four nights here in November and were not disappointed that we chose this hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Accommodation, food and service was impeccable.
