Local design and boundary-pushing innovation meet at Gorgeous George, the new hotel in the heart of downtown Cape Town. Whether you stay for one night or two weeks, it is the ultimate destination to truly experience the Mother City like a local.

Created out of two beautifully restored heritage buildings, Gorgeous George is the first in Cape Town to join the Design Hotels™ stable, a hand-selected worldwide collection of privately owned and operated design forward and culturally rooted hotels.

The city is on our doorstep, but you may find it hard to leave. Ascend the marble staircase to the 6th floor and blow off some steam at the rooftop pool and Gigi restaurant & bar.

This is the 021, where friends come to stay and play. This is Gorgeous George.


Coming to stay? Excellent, Gorgeous George has 32 luxurious rooms with industrial tones of raw, exposed concrete and steelwork, blended with modern Victorian design elements. Each room is kitted with an eclectic mix of handpicked treasures and custom pieces sourced from local and international designers and finished with a touch of inner-city howzit of hand-painted wall art by David Brits.


Join us at Gigi Rooftop and be inspired by Executive Chef Guy Bennett’s seasonal and local menu. Offering a fresh take on modern classics using only the best ingredients Cape Town has to offer, each dish is carefully considered and infused with Guy's knowledge and passion for food. 


Parties. Shindigs. Banquets. Bashes. Trailblazing art, oh-no-they-didn’t performances. It’s all going down town at Gorgeous George.
