Boutique Hotel

Gorgeous George is a brand new 32-room boutique hotel located conveniently between St. George's Mall and Green Market Square, in one of the most scenic and charming neighborhoods of the city. V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain are within walking distance, and it's just a 10-minute drive to Clifton and Camps Bay beaches. The hotel is built from two separate local heritage buildings and is positioned as part of a cultural hub that reflects South Africa's emerging design scene. The blend of styles is intriguing and daring: Art Deco, Victorian, and New Edwardian heritage elements are coupled with newer styles, including industrial elements of exposed concrete and steelwork.

The Room

On-site amenities include rooftop bar and pool, and first-floor event and art space, which is often used in partnership with the nearby Museum of Contemporary Art Africa. Each room has its own unique style and furnishings, making for an experience that rewards multiple stays. Colors are soft and sophisticated, with a modern aesthetic that is both luxurious and comfortable. Designer fixtures, decorations, and linens continue the privileged vibe. The handful of larger suites include sitting areas and have beautiful views of the surrounding galleries, cafes, and tree-lined streets.
