A waterfront Cape Town property on its own quay, Cape Grace somehow manages to be central and secluded, striking a balance between the modern and the historical. This is a superb place from which to explore Cape Town, or stop off for a few days during a safari trip, for all.

Guest accommodation consists of 122 rooms ranging from penthouse suites to rooftop terraces and superior suites, with a mixture of one, two, and three bedroom capabilities. Nonetheless, guests are provided with spacious and luxurious facilities, with rooms often opening out onto mountain, marina, or harbour views. All rooms have en-suite facilities and room service.

The hotel competes with the personalised characteristics of smaller boutique resorts. Rooms breathe a sense of naval history each with unique interior designs and fitted with antiques, and the dripping chandeliers evoke the colonial-era character from which the overall feel of the hotel springs. Notable guests include the Clintons and Obamas, who enjoy the resort’s isolation and spot nearby the V&A Waterfront.

The service here is second-to-none. All guests, including children, are remembered by name by staff who are also willing to impart their knowledge of the city and local dining recommendations. Communal facilities consist of a fitness centre, sauna, spa, pool, an intimate Bascule bar (popular with locals for having the best selection of whisky in the city), and the Signal Restaurant, which offers fine dining.

There is access for guests with disabilities. Whilst this is a high-end and very luxurious hotel, the staff are very accommodating to children of all ages (sometimes they offer an age-appropriate gift bag on arrival). Whilst there are many activities scheduled specifically for children, Cape Grace encourages children to enjoy the luxuries of the hotel just as much as their parents, with spa treatments for children and specially-sized dressing gowns.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
