Cape Grace

Luxury in the heart of the city

Located on a private quay, between Cape Town’s buzzy Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and a quieter yacht marina, Cape Grace offers panoramic views of the sea and harbour in one direction and imposing Table Mountain in the other.

The spacious rooms boast spectacular views and a stylish yet warm atmosphere – reflected in contemporary furniture and fabrics which merge seamlessly with art. antiques and artefacts from days gone by. 

Cape Grace prides itself on offering a seamless sensory experience: you can be assured that you'll feel suitably indulged during your time here. Choose a signature treatment from the spa menu and float out, restored, to soak up the rest of your day; recline on the deck beside the pool with a chilled cocktail in hand; lounge at Bascule, the hotel's chic bar, and select from a tantalising array of wines, cocktails and premium whiskies; and head to Signal restaurant to savour innovative dishes.

Old-world service

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We can’t say enough about the service at Cape Grace. The women at the front desk were more like your favorite aunts who wanted to make sure that we had the best plans for our stay in CapeTown. The car service was very convenient and the breakfast room service was awesome. The location is super close to the V&A Food Market which had a great range of local food choices. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We stayed here on a private tour booked through National Geographic, they did a fantastic job of putting this trip together.

Best Hotel in Cape Town

Nassau, New Providence Island

From the moment you walk into Cape Grace you know your at a special place. The entrance is as beautiful as it is inviting. The staff were all fantastic. High tea was great with a large assortment of options. Great location close to the wharf. Cant recommend enough.
