Bringing together local art, innovative design and some very fine cuisine, Gorgeous George Boutique Hotel is a set of cosy studios and larger suites at the very heart of South Africa’s Mother City. Located in a beautifully restored historic building and blending Art Deco with modern industrial chic, this is the ideal Cape Town accommodation for a sleek urban experience. You are on tree-lined St George’s Mall – the pedestrian avenue that runs through the centre of the city – and minutes away from local landmarks such as Greenmarket Square and the Company’s Gardens. Camps Bay and the V&A Waterfront are a short drive away.

The hotel is well appointed and suited to the modern traveller: high-speed complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the property and each room is air-conditioned and comes with a flat-screen television and a Bluetooth speaker. Socialising and dining take place on the hotel’s roof-top, a leafy haven where sun loungers surround a tiled Grecian pool and the reassuring shake of cocktails being made can be heard at the bar. The restaurant is exceptionally good – the executive chef trained in the legendary kitchens of the Cape winelands – and you have the peace of mind of 24-hour reception and security.

The downtown setting and boundary-pushing design make Gorgeous George Boutique Hotel a great choice for travellers who are looking to immerse themselves in an artistic, urban environment during their time in Cape Town. Most of its accommodations are spacious studios designed for a couple, but the hotel also offers two-bedroom suites for groups or families. The hotel will arrange a cot for children under two, and despite the restaurant’s reputation for fine, artfully presented food, there is a convenient child-friendly buffet as well.

One Bedroom Suite

There are 20 studios at Gorgeous George Boutique Hotel, each 35 square metres (376 square feet) in size and with an extra-length king size bed (half of which can be split into twin beds). Comfortably, artistically furnished and complete with blackout curtains, the studio has a separate bathroom with walk-in rain shower, luxury bath toiletries and a plush gown and slippers. The studios are air-conditioned and have free high-speed Wi-Fi; other tech-conveniences include a large screen television with Netflix, a tea and coffee station, complimentary bottled water and a Marshall Bluetooth speaker.

Other rooms

The hotel has eight one-bedroom suites for guests looking for a bit more space. At 44 square metres (474 square feet) there is enough room to include a lounge complete with its own flat-screen television.

Even more space is available in the hotel’s two-bedroom suites. There are four of them and with 72 square metres (775 square feet), there is enough room for a pair of bedrooms, each with their own bathroom (one has a free-standing bath as well as a shower) plus a lounge with flat-screen television.


The hotel has 24-hour reception and security with the added availability of secure parking (at an extra cost) if you have a car plus a concierge service to help with bookings and transport. There is a private room in the hotel for functions, but nearly all the socialising and dining at Gorgeous George take place six floors up on the roof-top where you find a Grecian pool and sun loungers, artfully screened from the city and a professional mixologist who takes care of your needs at the bar. Guests can look forward to complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi throughout the entire hotel.


GiGi is the in-house restaurant and its setting on the roof-top ensures a view every time you sit down to eat there. Putting an emphasis on local farm-to-fork produce, the kitchen is run with local passion and pride with a menu that is variable, accessible and unforgettably delicious – be sure to try the Spicy Lamb Ribs and 70% Choc Fondant.

Meals are enjoyed at tables on the roof-top though breakfast may be taken in your room. Special diets can be catered for on request, and although there is a child-friendly buffet at the restaurant, additional children’s meals are arranged at an extra cost.
