Cape Grace

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 March 2017

We were guests at Cape Grace Hotel for four days. The hotel is quiet, but at the same time is close to the bustling Water Front area of Cape Town, boutiques, shops, cafés and restaurants. Nice spacious rooms. Nice pool, beautiful gym, pampering spa. Impeccable but especially attentive and friendly service. Our favourite was concierge Kyla, who has done her best to reserve a table in two unique restaurants.

Room Tip: 201 was a great room with a large bathroom and a little balcony

This high quality hotel provides 5 star standards of service, food and accommodation, and is in a perfect central waterfront location for visiting Cape Town. It is just a few hundred metres easy pedestrian only walk from the lively V&A- waterfront shopping and shopping malls and the embarkation point for the only tour to the island where Nelson Mandella was imprisoned. It has a private frontage and parking and is just a little more private than the hotels in the malls. The hotel offers a complimentary chauffeured car service which, by prior appointment, will drop you and collect you later within the local area which includes several main tourist spots.
It was helpful to park and leave our own hire car for free and let the hotel driver take us to local sites in a very bmw and Mercedes or walk to the V&A A malls which is loaded with restaurants and shops.hotel provides a High standard of food services delivered by helpful smiley staff and has a nice sheltered swimming pool area. It's a short drive to the table top mountain cable car.. We also recommend driving or taking a day excursion further out to the cape point via the penguin sanctuary.

Room Tip: The hotel building is in the centre of a wharf . Room windows either face a yacht marina or a more c...

Stayed in this hotel ten years ago and still entering the lobby you enter another world of elegance. So it was a pleasure to return for dinner. The staff are first class professional and well trained in the hospitality industry. Not a large menu but everything which was ordered with the various dishes was well presented and delicious you could not fault. This was fine dining at its best. The springbok on the menu was out of this world with the sauce.

If we ever come back to Le Cap, the main reason will be spend some days at Cape Grace Hotel. Our suite overlooking the harbour and Table Mountain (136) was perfect. The setting was made with exquisite taste,It was very large and quiet.But what we loved the most was the kindness and professionalism of all the staff. Their enthousiasm and the positive energy they share with the guests shows that this Hotel is obviously very well managed. After a couple of days, we really felt a little bit "at home". This hotel is doing a lot for the good image of Cape Town. With gratitute we say "merci" to all the friendly persons that we had the chance to meet there. Congratulations. We already miss you!

I have stayed here, at different times, over a six year period.
The staff are incredibly helpful and attentive, especially in the restaurant.
The menu has remained mostly the same over the six years. The corn fritters, for breakfast, are inedible.
We went to the Bascule restaurant for tapas. The spring rolls had sharp chicken bones!
After spending four nights, in the 2 bedroom apartment, we asked for an extra hour to be added to the checkout time. We were told, very bluntly, that this could never be allowed.
I think we will be staying at Table Bay Hotel next time!
