Cape Grace
Cape Town

Despite being a large landmark property, the Cape Grace holds prime position amongst Cape Town’s most exclusive and loved hotels. Exceptionally well-run, it is an immaculate space with every creature comfort imaginable and a full range of facilities, making it popular with high-end American visitors. It has an unbeatable location in the heart of the harbour with Table Mountain looming overhead. It is set within its own private marina within the V&A Waterfront and is surrounded by the working dock – the perfect spot for exploring Cape Town by foot and a short stroll from her plethora of Waterfront restaurants and bars.

On first walking into the Cape Grace it has a distinctive heritage feel but still retains the casual and relaxed Capetonian flair. Décor is stylish with a flamboyant naval flair, and its 120 guest rooms are infused with local charm featuring antiques, hand-painted fabrics, African artefacts and French windows. Each room has an iPod docking stations, flat-panel HD televisions and the Suites & Penthouses also have an X-Box 360. The hotel is so vast and comprehensive it can accommodate a range of guests.

Facilities at the Cape Grace include the award-winning Signal restaurant, one of the best spas in Cape Town, a fitness studio, heated outdoor swimming pool, and a private guest library and lounge. Why not try the indulgent Kalahari Signature Massages, or get ready for dinner at one of the city’s finest eateries with a mani-pedi combo? Private trainers can be made available so guests can work out to the highest level even whilst on holiday. It’s location means that guests can step right out into the hustle and bustle of Cape Town and then return to the calm when the day is over. Afternoon Tea at the Cape Grace comes highly recommended – an even better way to end a day of sight-seeing!

Cape Town is now a thriving cosmopolitan city, from hidden gin bars to hiking Lion’s Head at full moon, it is a city of ‘doers’. Head down to Cape Agulhas – the geographical southern tip of the African continent and on your return stop at Boulders Beach to see the penguins.

Client Testimonials

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
