This was the last part of a three venue to trip to South Africa including New years eve. The staff cannot do enough for you and it's five star rating and status cannot be questioned. The rooms are a little old-fashioned and definitely could do with a refurbishment The common areas are classical and attractive and the pool area is...

Stayed for two nights to start a 11 night holiday. We all agreed this was the one of the best hotels we have ever stayed. The rooms were truly five star, staff were exceptionally helpful and every aspect of the facilities were exceptional. We will certainly be back

The Cape Grace hotel was absolutely beautiful . Great pool, location, and food. If only the service and attitude of Reinard Gerber (the manager on duty) reflected these great accommodations. On our last day, the manager removed all of our belongings from our room, even though they guaranteed us a late checkout upon arrival. Prior to leaving our hotel at...

The Cape Grace hotel lives up to its name. It is graceful and elegant and one of the most beautiful hotels I have stayed in anywhere in the world. The accommodation rooms are lush and comfortable, the views spectacular. The setting on the marina is amazing. I was woken on my first morning to seals playing on the jetty outside...

My biggest downside about this hotel is that we stayed here only for one night. What an experience it was to stay here. The interiors are elegant and simply gorgeous. Being interior designers ourselves we were truly inspired. The staff are ever so polite and professional and willing to help always. Our beautifully allocated and decorated room faced the harbour...

Cape Grace is a very comfortable hotel situated near to the Victoria & Albert waterfront, and so a great base from which to explore Cape Town and the surrounding area. I particularly want to mention that we had the tasting menu one night in the restaurant, and the food and wine were excellent. Brian, the sommelier, was very knowlegable and...

Capetown has a good variety of luxury hotels and I went and looked at all of them (the why of this is boring). Cape Grace is the best. It's totally elegant but friendly and relaxed at the same time. I love that. It also has the perfect location.

Where to start on the amazing service that this hotel provides? It really does set the benchmark for what service levels should be at a 5* hotel - few come anywhere near Cape Grace! From the moment we arrived, the service was above excellent. The staff on the door welcome you warmly, and check in was straight forward and accompanied...
