Recent Company News

 

City of Cape Town Mayoral Committee  Member for Economic, Social   Development and Tourism,  Cllr  Simon Grindrod, said today that the 2007 Conde Nast Traveler US Readers Choice Awards has underlined Cape Town and South Africa’s world-beater status!

“Following this weekend’s Bok triumph at the 2007 Rugby World Cup, the news that Cape Town’s hotel and leisure industry is also ranked as a world-beater puts a further collective spring in our step. We are truly a winning City and a winning nation,” Grindrod said.

Reacting to the 2007 Conde Nast Traveler US Readers Choice Awards which saw Cape Town coming in at the number  eight  spot in the top 100 over-all Best City Awards, and first in Africa and the Middle East, Grindrod said: “The City is very proud of the achievement of our tourism sector, specifically our hotel industry, which ranks among the best in the world. My job is to ensure that the private sector gets the support required from the City to continue raising their game and their efforts to compete successfully with the top destinations in the world.”

Grindrod said he was very pleased that Cape Town hotels and products scored incredibly well.

The Table Bay Hotel came in at 8th position in the Best  of the Best (World’s Top 100 overall) Category with a 96, 8 score (out of 100) and the Cape Grace at number 33, scoring 94, 7.

Cape Town and the Western Cape have four hotels in the top 10 African Hotels: The Table Bay (96, 8), Cape Grace (94, 7), The Plettenberg (90, 6) and Radisson Waterfront (86, 0).

The Table Bay and Cape Grace were first and second over-all in this category.
