We had a wonderful stay at Gorgeous George. The room managed to walk the line between style and comfort, and had wonderful touches, like free Netflix, delicious minibar snacks. The staff gave us some of the best customer service I've come across in Africa - from a free bottle of MCC, as we were celebrating a birthday; to a valet service when I was struggling to find the parking (which is awkward to find, visitors be warned!!). It felt like no ask was too much, and staff made an effort to anticipate our needs. Delicious food - whether room service (club sandwich) or breakfast on the roof (shakshuka). The roof top bar is one of the best spots in the city for a cocktail. A truly memorable experience, and we will be back.

Not only is the hotel well located and immaculate, the staff are formidable. They make you feel as if Gorgeous George is your home and ensure that your stay is comfortable. The rooms are large and well appointed with the necessary amenities. The access to Ignite gym is an amazing perk (the facility is guaranteed to satisfy anyone who works out). Breakfast is delicious & is served until a reasonable hour. The beverage list is vast and appetizing. We can’t say enough about how wonderful all of the staff are - I can confidently recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to comfortably stay in the centre of Cape Town and feel spoiled.

Gorgeous George proved to be an inspired choice as a base for our 6 night stay in Cape Town. Gigi’s rooftop was a great place for breakfast and for evening cocktails. We also dined there one evening and it was lively and had a great atmosphere with good food. But what really makes the hotel special is the friendly and professional staff - from the cocktail barmen to the waiters to the housekeeping staff to the doormen to the receptionists - notably Sippo - all were excellent. They sorted out taxicabs, helped us with our golf clubs (we played golf 4 days during our stay). Ubers also proved a good option in the evening for short rides to the great restaurants around Cape Town. We booked our stay direct with the hotel so check out their own website. We had a lovely one bed suite with walk in shower, nice toiletries. A very enjoyable stay.

This February we visited Cape Town and were quests in the Gorgeous George. The setting is very stylish with high ceilings, contemporary finishing and a lot of attention to detail! And then we have not even mentioned the stunning rooftop bar with restaurant.... We received excellent service from from all staff numbers, however especially from the hotel manager regarding a special request. Thank you all for making our stay memorable!
