The Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town

Updated on June 19, 2013

Luxury accommodation venues in Cape Town are competing at a maddening pace. Just when you think you have seen the ultimate new concept you are confronted with something even more luxurious.

The Cape Grace is definitely in the race and its location adds some more points to the scorecard. Situated at the vibrant tourist magnet of South Africa it has to score ten out of ten for location. With its own quay, it proudly takes its place at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront; South Africa’s most visited area.


The room choices are varied and you can stay in the magnificent penthouse, any of the one, two or three bedroom suites or the rooftop terrace rooms. The rooftop terrace rooms open onto large balconies with brilliant views over the harbour; where you can watch the boats departing till long after sunset. The superior rooms are more spacious than the luxury rooms and have a foldaway sofa for families with a child. The three bedroom suites are ideal for larger families or groups travelling together. It is big with a floor space of 200 square meters and a large balcony. The Penthouse is ideal for honeymooners with its private Jacuzzi and glorious outside dining area.

Complimentary Services and Features

Wireless internet is free and available throughout the Cape Grace. All luxury transfers in a twenty kilometre radius are free, but will depend on availability. The boardroom is free to guests and seats 14 people. All rooms have iPod docking stations and the massive heated pool is for the enjoyment of the guests. There is no beach area available at the hotel so the pool is a blessing on those hot summer days. The Cape Grace is a child friendly hotel and makes special effort to make even the smallest one’s stay special. There are complimentary board games, game consoles, a story session at 1800 every day and an excellent babysitting service for your peace of mind.


Signal Restaurant was named in honour of Signal Hill which has a rich history. While the Cape was still a halfway house for ships from Europe en route to India, everyday a loud bang was fired from the canon on Signal Hill to announce the arrival of midday. This tradition is still in place today. The restaurant offers all-day dining with exotic fish dishes, basic sandwiches and soup on the menu. The real dinner menu is extensive with some authentic South African dishes.

Specials and Packages

The Cape Grace offers some packages to make the stay a bit more affordable. There is a discount for staying more than ten nights and the winter (low season) tariffs are quite a bit cheaper than the normal prices. Some of the special packages include family vouchers for the aquarium, a complimentary night, a few hours free babysitting and some other valuable discounts and services.

The Cape Grace is elegant, warm and friendly and stands proudly in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. It is waiting to entertain, wine and dine you and sweep you of your feet.

      Thanks Laura. I hope you get a chance to travel. We made a decision long time ago to travel, which means we live in semi-poverty most of the time to fund our travels, but it works for us.
