Superb in every way

Sarasota, Florida

This place is just awesome. It’s a beautiful hotel. The location is excellent, right next to the waterfront. They have first class drivers in first class cars that will take you anywhere you want to go.k. The drivers are very informative and are gentlemen to the highest extent. Everybody that works at the hotel is just wonderful. They are very helpful always have and smile on their face and there’s no question they probably have way more staff than they really need to get the job done but that’s what makes it so special as no one is stressed and they are there for you whatever your needs may be. They have a nice gym that overlooks the waterway. The spa is very nice with a rocking steamroom and sauna (which I love!). They also have an awesome breakfast , great library, and nice bar. The whiskey bar was under renovation so unfortunately we didn’t get to see that but they do have complimentary wine tastings every night. I would definitely stay here again. Our main concierge I think his name was (Eschelon?) He was excellent and just so helpful. When we got there my wife had a problem with an infection from a previous wisdom teeth surgery and within minutes they had a set up with an awesome dentist, drove us there and everything was taken care of and it was on a Sunday evening short notice! . I just can’t say enough about the Cape Grace hotel! 10 stars!

Excellent place to call home when in Capetown

Montreal, Canada

We stayed here for four nights in August and loved our visit. We have stayed at other high end properties in Cape Town on prior visits and this is without a doubt our favorite. The location is perfect on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. The staff and facilities are excellent. We had a view on the marina and Table Mountain which was a great way to awaken each morning. The staff make an extra effort to know all the guests and are very welcoming each time you return to the hotel. We were celebrating a special occassion and had tried for months to get a reservation at the Test Kitchen and the concierge was able to score this special restaurant for this special occasion. We will definitely stay at Cape Grace during our next visit to Cape Town.
