Stayed at this lovely little hotel on a recent trip to Cape Town. While the hotel was great, and I would recommend it, this review is entirely dedicated to the restaurant on the top floor of this hotel. We came here daily for breakfast, and it was so great that I suggested we come here again one night for dinner. With the exception of proposing to my wife, one of the best decisions of my life. Having dined all over the world, at several 3 Michelin Star restaurants, let me tell you that this unassuming gem falls into the top 5 meals I've ever had in my life. I may or may not have actually shed a tear out of pure joy. My eyes forcibly closed on me during each bite. The hip, trendy, and yet casual ambiance further added to the experience. Chef, staff, team, god bless you all for your heavenly gifts. I hope to have the fortune of getting a chance to return one day.

What a lovely hotel, stylish, cool, amazing. Located in the city center, lovely staff in all areas and the rooms are fantastic. Dinner and drinks are also „gorgeous“. We still have a few days to stay here, but we can already confirm that „Gorgeous Georg“ is really GORGEOUS. We have been in CPT before in other nice places, but this hotel / restaurant / bar is definitely a place to visit at least twice.

We booked the Gorgeous George many months ago. After asking for our payment details they took out the full amount for the entire stay instead of just the deposit. Ok. Fast forward to now. We just received a notice our stay is cancelled and the hotel is fully booked because we didn’t pay our deposit… Now we’re scrambling to find a new place that can accommodate us and our 1 yr old. Terrible service all round.

Situated in the CBD of Cape Town this hotel is a perfect stopover for a night. The rooms are really well designed - funky and functional - and all the action happens on the rooftop where there is a bar and restaurant. We had a great dinner and good night's sleep.

Wonderful stay, 3 times already in two weeks. Don’t get fool with first impression of the lobby, wait until you get to the room. Amazing design, cozy, I feel I’m at home. Clean room and bed, nice shower and toilet with own branded amenities. After this stay, I confirm this boutique hotel are much much better than 5 starts hotel I wasted my money and time to stay. Staff all over the place, housekeeping, reception, resturant, even maintenance staff are all friendly and attentive. Rooftop restaurant is a real passionate, a life resturant, and excellent breakfast and food. Trust me, make this place your home when you come to Capetown, I promise you wont regret!!!

The Gorgeous George is, as the name suggests, gorgeous! The staff are friendly and the rooms are decadent and beautiful. I absolutely loved the attention to detail and the local designer flair. The Gigi bar is stunning, and breakfast was delicious (best avo I've ever eaten!). I really do hope we get to visit again soon.

What is not to like? This is THE most gorgeous(no wonder they have "gorgeous" in their title/!) design heaven hotel(the interiors are drool worthy!) with the most beautiful rooms / restaurant and roof top. The staff is just amazing and EVERY single staff member was friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We cannot wait to go back to the Gorgeous George and especially in summer when we can enjoy a drink on the rooftop. Just a spectacular spot that every one should experience when in Cape Town!!!
