The Best City in the World

By 14th December 2018Blog

Our home town has once again been named the Best City in the World, based on the opinions of over 45,000 readers in the 2018 Telegraph Travel Awards. We can’t say we’re surprised but we are extremely proud to represent this magnificent city and offer visitors to Cape Town a comfortable, affordably and conveniently located place from which to explore to their heart’s content.

If you’re visiting us soon, here are some of the best things to see, do and eat, within 5km of the hotel.

This is what The Telegraph had to say about it all:

The votes have been counted, the results are in. We can reveal that the greatest city in the world is a coastal gem, lying in the shadow of a cloud-hugged mountain. Here wine flows, penguins waddle and – not too far away – majestic beasts roam.

It could only be Cape Town.

To find out the greatest city in the world, we asked you – our trusted Telegraph Travel readers – to let us know your favourite holiday destinations. Over 45,000 readers responded to the Telegraph Travel Awards survey and the South African city pipped Tokyo and Vancouver to the top spot.

We would love to say we were surprised but, frankly, we were not. This is the sixth consecutive victory for Cape Town. 

South Africa was also a runner up in the Best Country Category!
