Hotel Overview

With a classically inspired exterior and elegant interior, the internationally award-winning Cape Grace is situated on a private quay on Cape Town's vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Cape Grace's charm lies in its intimate atmosphere, contemporary classic décor and unique personalized hospitality, you will find staff warm and accommodating with a spirit of unrivaled generosity.

When Charles Brand, his wife Beth and parents Chippy and Cynthia first opened the doors of Cape Grace in December 1996, their vision was of a hotel that felt more like a good friend's home. The décor and environment needed to reflect its five star aspirations but most importantly, staff needed to relate to guests as personal hosts with warmth and enthusiasm.

Ten years later and now owned by Meikles Africa, Cape Grace remains true to its operating philosophy of genuine hospitality and a desire to exceed guests' expectations. Meikles Africa is synonymous with distinctive and luxurious hotel experiences, owning two other independently managed, award-winning hotels in Africa, each with its own distinctive brand identities, namely Meikles Harare and the Victoria Falls Hotel.

Roy Meiring, CEO of Meikles Africa Hotels says "Cape Grace consolidates our product offering of highly successful, independent hotels that have their own character and style and have excelled in their respective areas in which they operate".

Cape Grace is a member of the exclusive Leading Small Hotels of the World, a brand extension of the internationally recognized and respected organization, the Leading Hotels of the World. Launched in October 1999, the Leading Small Hotels of the world is dedicated to luxurious, boutique five star properties that are the preferred choice for upscale travelers who look for charm, uniqueness, personalized service and guest recognition in their accommodation - a perfect match for Cape Grace.
