Cape Grace Hotel in South Africa

Cape Grace Hotel in South Africa is a popular choice while in Cape Town; it was recently votedBest Hotel in Africa and the Middle East” by Travel & Leisure Magazine 2011.  Click here for details of the great awards the hotel has received.  

A must do while staying at Cape Grace is taking the trip up Table Mountain in a cable car; the mountain is sculpted from sandstone and rises 1086 metres at its highest point – Maclears Beacon – above the bay.  Its flat summit measures nearly 3km and provides breathtaking views over the city and its beaches.  The panorama stretches from Table Bay to False Bay and around the mountain to the Hout Bay Valley and Kommetjie.  On a clear day, you will find a beautiful view across the Cape Flats to the Hottentots Holland Mountains.  The cable car was first opened in 1929 and today transports around 600,000 people to the summit annually.
