The Cape Grace is situated on the West Quay of Cape Town‘s Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, overlooking the international yacht basin. The elegant Cape Grace Hotel opened it’s doors in 1996 and features architecture reflecting the strong French historical influence on the Cape. Inspiration was drawn from the opulence and luxury of great European hotels like the Amstel Inter-Continental in Amsterdam and The Gritti Palace in Venice (both also located on water).
The Cape Grace Hotel is the perfect base for both business and leisure travelers. It is fully equipped with every modern convenience. Furniture of the finest design and quality grace the public and private rooms. The 92 bedrooms and 12 suites are luxuriously appointed with lounge areas, walk-in dressing rooms, bathrooms with separate showers and double vanities, so as to cater to the privacy and individuality of its guests. All rooms have French doors opening to exquisite views of Table Mountain, the yacht basin, or the working harbor.
There is a a boardroom, private guest lounge, swimming pool and 24 hour room service. The cuisine is contemporary and relaxed. Both the restaurant and cocktail bar have viewing terraces overlooking the newly-constructed bascule bridge, which will function as a gateway for the passing yachts.
As the Cape Grace is situated in the heart of the Waterfront, numerous leisure activities abound. The Victoria Wharf offers up market shops, restaurants, cinemas, and a theater. The hotel is three minutes from the city center, and is within easy reach of Cape Town’s finest art galleries, museums, botanical gardens, wine farms and beaches.
