Gorgeous George, a new hotel on St George’s Mall in the CBD of Cape Town, will officially open in March 2019.
The hotel has been created out of two restored heritage buildings and is the first hotel in Cape Town to join the Design Hotels stable, a worldwide collection of privately owned and operated hotels.
The 32-room hotel was originally built by the United Building Society and features an Art Deco entrance, while its conjoined building boasts traits of the New Edwardian style of the 1940s. A tower was devised to manage the buildings’ differing heights. It hosts the rooftop pool and allows for the bar and restaurant to be on the same level. There is also a first-floor eventing space that can accommodate up to 150 people seated banquet style.
