The Cape Grace is located at Cape Town's vibrant and bustling Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Built on one of the old quays, this red-brick building with its simple and demur exterior has become something of a local landmark. The hotel’s décor is an innovative blend of historic and contemporary, mixing custom-made metal, glass and leather pieces with hand-painted fabrics and museum-quality antiques to create a look that is entirely its own.

Being at the heart of the V&A Waterfront and close to the city centre, The Cape Grace is in a prime position for those wanting to explore Cape Town. Elegant and luxurious, the hotel is ideal for those seeking fine Cape Town accommodation but The Cape Grace is also a great choice for families: children are greeted with a Cape Grace welcome pack and special bedtime story sessions are offered in the library.

    Doris Ng, October 2015
  • We arrived at Cape Grace later in the afternoon and checked into Room #1, which had a little balcony and overlooked the marina. It was a lovely room, perfect for our four-night stay.

    Nancy Shiley, May 2015
  • It was top class. Our room was amazing, looking at the harbor as well as the mountains. They treated us so well, and I really liked the use of their local car to take us to dinner and such.

    Shannon Mc Carthy, January 2015
  • The Cape Grace was a great location with impeccable service.

    Fred Gould, December 2014
  • Thank you so much again. Everything was great and we loved South Africa. The accommodations were all impeccable with great service. The transfers also worked out great and we found the drivers very prompt and informative. We also used an amazing guide (riaan@hiketablemountain.co.za) to hike table mountain who I would highly recommend. We will definitely refer our friends to you in the future. Hopefully we will also be back and use you again :)

    AJ Reisman, December 2014
  • Finally we came to the Cape Grace. The hotel is something else. Location is just unbeatable and the hotel is fabulous. We just could not believe our eyes when we were taken to our room. It was fantastic. Really fantastic, and we really enjoyed it, mostly the convenience of the location at the waterfront. We would walk to the waterfront for a while and come back. Just outstanding. The quality of the food was great.
