    The service was exceptional and of the highest standard - I will use their facilities again and again without question.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    I liked the fact tht there was a car avaiable to us within 20 km of the hotel to take us to different locations. You had to book in advance but it was generally available.

    I did not like the location. It was off the beaten track and while it was at the waterfront, you had several blocks to walk to reach any resstaurants. It was not safe at night to walk to the restaurants outside of the hotel.

  • Older travelers
    9.4

    Cape Grace must be one of the best hotels in the world. Friendly helpful staff, warm welcome luxurios bedroom. As returners we were upgraded to a view of Table Mountain & marina. Suberb location with the amenities of the Waterfront a stroll away. Sadly this does not come at a bargain price but worth every rand!

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    For a larger hotel, the hotel has an intimate feeling and great and attentive staff. There is a very personal feeling provided by all concerned.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    This was a short return visit to Cape Grace before we travelled on. We know luxury and standards are high, but not too formal.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    It's the second time we stay at the hotel and it is surely one of the best hotels in the world. The friendliness of the staff is outstanding

    We sometimes found that the service was a bit slow (breakfast) considering the high expectations we have.
