We booked the Gorgeous George many months ago. After asking for our payment details they took out the full amount for the entire stay instead of just the deposit. Ok. Fast forward to now. We just received a notice our stay is cancelled and the hotel is fully booked because we didn’t pay our deposit… Now we’re scrambling to find a new place that can accommodate us and our 1 yr old. Terrible service all round.

Situated in the CBD of Cape Town this hotel is a perfect stopover for a night. The rooms are really well designed - funky and functional - and all the action happens on the rooftop where there is a bar and restaurant. We had a great dinner and good night's sleep.

Wonderful stay, 3 times already in two weeks. Don’t get fool with first impression of the lobby, wait until you get to the room. Amazing design, cozy, I feel I’m at home. Clean room and bed, nice shower and toilet with own branded amenities. After this stay, I confirm this boutique hotel are much much better than 5 starts hotel I wasted my money and time to stay. Staff all over the place, housekeeping, reception, resturant, even maintenance staff are all friendly and attentive. Rooftop restaurant is a real passionate, a life resturant, and excellent breakfast and food. Trust me, make this place your home when you come to Capetown, I promise you wont regret!!!

The Gorgeous George is, as the name suggests, gorgeous! The staff are friendly and the rooms are decadent and beautiful. I absolutely loved the attention to detail and the local designer flair. The Gigi bar is stunning, and breakfast was delicious (best avo I've ever eaten!). I really do hope we get to visit again soon.
