Hotel Description

Right in the heart of the city, and yet removed, constructed on a quay at the Victoria and Alfred waterfront, the Cape Grace Hotel is equally well positioned to take advantage of the views (of the harbor, the marina and Table Mountain) and of the convenience of a city center location. It’s hard to find fault with any aspect of this place; it’s a perennial contender for best city hotel in Africa, and with its splendid location, professional service and top-notch facilities, it’s no wonder.

There are older and more elegant grand hotels in Cape Town; this one was built in 1996, and there’s still a youthful glow about it. Locals congregate here, especially in the restaurant, with its view of the marina and the mountain. And those views make another appearance at the rooftop spa, lending some added drama to your wellness routine.

Rooms are contemporary and attractive, with all the modern conveniences and some especially fine bath amenities — it’s in the details that this place truly shines. If you’ve got the budget for it, the top-floor penthouse suites are astounding, with private terraces and Jacuzzis. And open to all is the Bascule Bar, featuring a menu of some five hundred whiskies from around the world and all the best vintages from the thriving Cape vineyards, served at the edge of the marina. (If you haven’t had your fill of good South African wine, there’s also the hotel’s Signal Bar, which does complimentary daily tastings.) When it’s time to get out and see the town, the waterfront is the perfect home base. That goes equally whether you’re up for a night of dining and carousing or a trip to Cape Town’s historic Robben Island, erstwhile lodging to one Nelson Mandela.

How to get there: Cape Grace Hotel is about a 25-minute drive from Cape Town International Airport. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
