Feel Presidential at Cape Grace Hotel”

It's classic luxury with a modern twist. The exquisite painting-like wallpaper, industrial accessories styled like art installations on each floor, and grand furniture make you feel presidential. The concierge is some of the best we've ever dealt with. Absolutely brilliant. The rooms include toiletries you wouldn't normally expect, such as fabric wash and shaving cream. Excellent touch! Breakfast is delicious. The staff at Bascule are incredibly friendly and knowledgable. In-room dining was not as tasty as everything else, but we did order from their late night menu, which may have had something to do with it. All in all, Cape Grace Hotel helped make our Cape Town experience incredible.

Beautiful hotel with great decor, location, staff.”

Tasteful decor, attentive staff, fantastic location.

we were much impressed that every single member of staff knew our names, and addressed us by name each time they came across us; a wonderful personal touch. the interior decor was first class - like a comfortable, very well coordinated home with antiques, striking chandeliers, protea arrangements, mirrors, paintings, lamps, sofas, and with many unique touches. location was brilliant, with water on both sides, and mountains too. food was first rate. free port and sherry, and the chauffeur service both lovely touches, and also the welcome talk. we were sorry that the rooms for wheelchair users had a partial rather than a full view of the marina. this was a holiday for my 60th birthday, and cape grace was suitably special and memorable!

Perfect setting, wonderful service and luxury room”

The service was excellent and the attention to detail faultless. The room had lovely views of table mountain. The restaurant was superb.

Had a wonderful stay at Cape Grace. Had a meal in the restaurant in the evening and we chose the Taster Menu with wine. Each wine was introduced separately in detail and the food was superb. The only critism that we had which we did report to the restaurant manager at the time, was that we had been seated by a large table of 6 who were quite loud, therefore it made it difficult to hear the quietly spoken waitress who was serving the wine.

Good room and friendly staff

We travelled to Cape Town for my 60th birthday. Cape Grace was recommended by more than one person. We were not disappointed. It is well placed and in a safe area. The room was large and well equipped although the view from the room was a little disappointing. Breakfast was adequate but a little crowded. Staff were very friendly both at reception, concierge and the in restaurant. One staff memeber was a little forward in looking for a tip.

Great location and friendly staff but they let us down”

Arriving at Cape Grace was welcoming and the reception staff can be commended. Sadly we were not put in the correct room as we had booked one with a balcony. We waited in the wrong room for a call to see if they could move us and they did call with an option of a new room at an extra charge. I said I would pay the extra but asked them to consider the position that we had booked a room with a balcony in the first place. I wish I had not said anything because they spent the next hour deliberating on whether to put us there so despite arriving early afternoon we lost valuable time. Finally we moved to a lovely room with a balcony. It was smaller than the one we booked but we did not mind that. The bar was lovely and also served nice tapas during the day. Staff were extremely helpful. The real disappointment was breakfast. We weren’t asked where we wanted to sit. Ordered Capucino and got a pot of coffee instead and we started getting ill one hour after it. still recovering now.
