Cape Grace has one of the most enviable locations in Cape Town's V&A Waterfront, with Table Mountain guarding the rear and waterways of the harbour to the front. The hotel sits on its own private quay with a working dock on one side and an international yacht marina on the other.
Dine wherever the mood takes you at Cape Grace - oysters and champagne on the pool terrace, soup and snack lunch or sweet afternoon treats in the library, a romantic meal in your suite, or a la carte in Signal Restaurant where classic dishes are touched by South African flavours. A favourite al-fresco spot is beside Bascule Whisky, Wine and Cocktail Bar, flanking the private marina. The 56-foot yacht 'Spirit of the Cape' is moored alongside and is available for charters, sunset cruises and even a whisky tasting.
The Spa at Cape Grace has its own menu of temptations, with innovative treatments incorporating African products and ancient methods. Sweeping views of Table Mountain, Cape Town city skyline and the yacht marina will send you into sensory pleasure overload.
Each of the 120 luxurious guest rooms and suites, all with French doors opening to views of Table Mountain or the working harbour, are decorated differently. What they all have in common however, are fresh flowers, robes and slippers in the dressing room, separate bath and shower, fully stocked private bar, flat screen TV, iPod docking station, room safe and complimentary wireless connectivity.

All of the holidays we prepare are tailor-made, but this might give you an idea of how Cape Grace can be included in you own dream holiday.
This itinerary features 5* properties that offer the height of traditional refinement and luxury.
The Cape Grace Hotel in Cape Town has one of the most iconic settings of any hotel in Africa: right on the harbour near the bustling V&A Waterfront and with Table Mountain looming in the background. The rooms are large, comfortable, and well-appointed, and the excellent understated service underlines it's status as perhaps the most elegant of the Waterfront hotels.
When you leave Cape Town you will only have a short drive to Lanzarac Manor on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, and this charming 5* property is located on a private working wine estate surrounded by the dramatic Helderberg mountains.
Moving on to the Garden Route, Hunters Country House is an exclusive family owned retreat, and part of the Relais & Chateaux group of exclusive properties. Only 10 km from Plettenberg Bay, this gracious original homestead is surrounded by beautiful gardens, and framed by the majestic Tsitsikamma mountains.
Finally you will end your holiday with a safari at the 5* Bayethe Lodge on the award-winning Shamwari Game reserve near Port Elizabeth. Each of the 12 luxurious tented-suites have a private plunge pool and views over the reserve, and the quality of the game viewing, accommodation, and service is second to none in the area.

The Cape Grace hotel was lovely and the staff so helpful and the position was great.
Cape Grace - Excellent. The perfect location on the waterfront and easy to access from the motorway. A great room and the staff extremely helpful, the local chauffeur service was really good.
Cape Grace and Lion Sands River Lodge both excellent, in both location, service and attention to detail. Best holiday ever.... thank you.
Cape Grace - beautifully decorated mix of old and new, fantastic service.
The holiday was fantastic - we all had a great time and will definitely go back to South Africa for a longer holiday asap. In terms of feedback, I cannot praise enough the service from your team - repeat business definitely on the way, when we go back. Cape Grace was brilliant - great service, food etc - truly world class. Protea Quays at Knysna - clean, efficient, bit like a Premier Inn - but OK for the money and well located for restaurants etc Ocean Eleven at Hermanus - really great small private hotel - huge rooms, fantastic views, really good staff and generally very good value - would recommend and stay there again on another visit - the apartment was massive and the suites lovely - also free port and sherry, chocolate, crisps etc - as per the Cape Grace. Everything went as planned - thanks again.
What a fabulous holiday ! The package Anneli put together worked really well in line with our own requirements. The Cape Grace was truly outstanding, from the initial welcome to the high class standards shown throughout inc rooms, restaurants, car shuttles (BMW 7 series), bars, friendly staff. Ocean Eleven Guest House was also fantastic, even if we only stayed one night ! Great location, rooms with exceptional space, helpful and friendly staff.
We got back Tuesday - everything was wonderful. We really enjoyed staying at Cape Grace Hotel ... the standard was exceptional - food, rooms, staff all fantastic. Shamwari was amazing - saw all the animals we expected to see ... our grandchildren were thrilled. So thank you for arranging everything for us - it went very smoothly.
Just a short note the thanks you for organising what turned out to be the best holiday we have ever had. Madikwe Safari Lodge was perfect. Annette’s birthday could not have been made more special, never mind the cake, they brought in a choir for her, she was in tears. The next day when we checked out they brought out the choir again and I nearly was. Klein Oliphants was brilliant. Cape Grace was fabulous as was our meal in Baia. I could get used to this. Please rest assured that we will be singing your praises and recommending your services every chance that we get.
