Take A Trip: Gorgeous George

Set to open late April 2019, Gorgeous George will be the first Design Hotel™ to open in Cape Town’s historic downtown.


Slap bang in the heart of the Mother City, between St. George’s Mall and Green Market Square, the Gorgeous George is a melting pot of Cape Town’s unique cultural diversity and history. Be sure to tune in from 12:00 today with our host, Ondela M.

Guests are immersed in South Africa’s dynamic design scene throughout the 32 rooms and communal spaces including a rooftop restaurant, pool and bar.

The hotel is situated on the only tree-lined pedestrian avenue in Cape Town, framed by heritage buildings just below the historic Company’s Garden and overlooking Green Market Square. The prime location means a short one-kilometre walk to the V&A Waterfront or just a 10-minute drive to Table Mountain and world renown Clifton and Camps Bay beaches.

Created from two beautifully restored heritage buildings connected by a rooftop bar, Gorgeous George is the first to join the Design Hotels™ stable, a hand-selected worldwide collection of privately owned and operated design forward and culturally rooted hotels. International award-winning interior designer Tristan du Plessis has created a concept celebrating timeless and contemporary African design that showcases locally manufactured high-end South African decor.

Lighting and furniture have been sourced from David Krynauw, Gregor Jenkin, Studio 19, Douglas&Co, and Dokter and Misses, while custom murals from artist David Brits are featured in every room.

Come to George to stay
More than a hotel, Gorgeous George is where local design and boundary-pushing innovation meet, creating an inner-city gathering place for both locals and the well-travelled. Gorgeous George boasts 32 luxe rooms ranging from studios to 1 and 2-bedroom suites featuring industrial
tones of raw, exposed concrete and steelwork, blended with modern Victorian design elements.

Go to Gigi to play
Gigi Rooftop is the restaurant at Gorgeous George. Conceptualized by Executive Chef Guy Bennett, it will offer fresh and inspirational dishes to thrill the palates of both local foodies and international travellers.

With extensive knowledge and passion for food, Bennett has worked with top South African chefs including Reuben Riffel, Michael Deg and Bertus Basson, and most recently helmed Grand Provence in Franschhoek.

The Gorgeous George bar is a place to let loose and indulge. Meticulously crafted cocktails and a selection of local and international wines and spirits will be poured by renowned in-house mixologist Jody Rahme and served round the clock. Jody began his mixology journey in Johannesburg at Sin + Tax bar before bringing his talents to Gorgeous George.
