There are hotels and then there is this. The attention to even the smallest detail is striking. The staff are amazing and the whole experience is simply wonderful. From the free room upgrade (incl a playstation for our son) to the energy pack for the CT Cycle Tour, everything was perfect.

Our first trip to South Africa and Cape Town and we were fortunate to have the Cape Grace recommended to us by our tour company (first time we have gone on an organized trip). From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and looked after. The staff were attentive, friendly and wanted to ensure we had the best stay. As we had spent 2 days traveling to get there we decided to just eat at the hotel rather then explore the city. The hotel already knew I had dietary restrictions (vegan and wheat free) from our tour operators and had been planning menus for me in case we ate there. We were given an upgraded room with a view of Table Mountain and champagne and chocolates waiting for us (we were celebrating a delayed anniversary/birthday trip). I cannot say enough about the restaurant and food. Tatiana our hostess made us felt like family and our sommelier Alvezo spent a lot of time discovering our wine tastes, and recommending vineyards. The food was exceptional- I couldn’t believe the chefs specialty was not vegan food. My husbands omni food was also perfect for him. The menu she designed was amazing and far beyond what I have had at specialized restaurants around the world. The food and service were so wonderful we decided not to eat anywhere else the entire trip. I also had a chance to visit the spa and again the staff were very welcoming- made you feel like you were the only person they were looking after - had a super relaxing massage and pedicure. If I could give this hotel more than 5 stars I would. Great location and impeccable service. Can’t wait to go back!

This was our first visit to South Africa and we stayed at the Cape Grace Hotel on recommendation of our agent, Reservations Africa from Victoria BC. It is centrally located in the docks area which turned out to be a very safe area to be and walk around. Lots of restaurants nearby and some shops (unfortunately many have closed due to COVID). Within easy walking distance of the ferry to Robben Island. The hotel had only recently reopened after being closed due to COVID. They practiced the highest standards for protection of guests and staff. The rooms are luxurious, and the staff extremely helpful. We ate most nights at the hotel and the meals were very good. They offer a "limo" service if you want to dine out which we used one night. Would highly recommend this hotel and from touring around other areas of the city, believe it is the best place to stay in Cape Town.
