Gorgeous George + Harpers House Accommodation Special: Two of Cape Town’s Hottest Boutique Hotels

Gorgeous George + Harpers House Accommodation Special: Two of Cape Town’s Hottest Boutique Hotels

Stylish staycations.

Eye-watering design is around every corner at these two boutique properties – hardly surprising given that one of them is a part of the Design Hotels stable, and the other is its sister property. Situated in the centre of town, off the bustling St George’s Mall precinct, Gorgeous George excites visitors with its superb design features, stylish furnishings and vibey sixth-floor rooftop bar and restaurant, Gigi.

Gigi Rooftop Hello Gorgeous

Its sister guesthouse, Harpers House, is situated just off Green Point Main Road, in the sought-after Atlantic Seaboard. Although it’s quieter and more pared-back than its innercity counterpart, its welcoming atmosphere and tastefully plush decor and prime location, a short walk from the sparkling ocean give it a different kind of appeal.

In tune with its sister hotel, Harpers House is an exquisite Victorian building dating back to 1892, tucked away on a narrow street just off of Green Point Main Road. Original wooden floors, winding staircases, a beautifully tended garden and a sophisticated entrance set the scene for a plush stay.

An intimate number of just eight rooms creates a more private experience, ideal for those wishing to relax in style. Each bedroom is adorned in a stylish mix of modern and classic furnishings, where hand-illustrated wallpaper, wooden accents and pops of colour give it an interiors-magazine edge.
