Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa, situated opposite the famous St George’s Cathedral in the heart of Cape Town, has just won a 2012 Travellers’ Choice Award from TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel website. Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa has been ranked the 5th best establishment in Africa and the very best in Western Cape. The Travellers’ Choice Awards are based on the reviews and opinions of millions of travellers in the TripAdvisor community.
Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa is managed and marketed within the Three Cities Exceptional Hotel portfolio. CEO of Three Cities Mike Lambert commented with pride, “Congratulations to the staff of Mandela Rhodes Place. The well-earned award is due to the entire team’s dedication, passion and hard work, and off course a great product.”
In 2011, the Cape’s exquisite natural attractions, beautiful beaches, cultural splendour and well-maintained urban environment, caused it to be voted as the top Traveller’s Choice Destination by TripAdvisor, and Mandela Rhodes Place is set right in the heart of this unique city. Offering a perfect base for business and leisure travel, or as a permanent home in the city, the hotel boasts a wide range of stylish accommodation options.
Like its namesake, the great Nelson Mandela, the ethos of humanity and compassion filter through every detail and service offered. From the genuine warmth and caring of highly trained staff, to the thoughtful and comfortable appointment of apartments and facilities, Mandela Rhodes Place’s entire operations is geared towards giving visitors unparalleled access to contemporary urban living at its best.
Three Cities has already won several other awards for establishments listed within their portfolios, including: The Peninsula All-Suite Hotel which had been voted as the RCI Best Large Resort 2010 at the prestigious RCI Awards in 2011, Le Franschhoek Hotel & Spa winning a Gold Certificate for Winelist of the Year Award at the Diners Club Awards in 2011 and the David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa winning the Luxury Hotel Award for best luxury game lodge in Zambia in 2010, to name but a few.
Mandela Rhodes Place Hotel & Spa was converted from four historic buildings which have been uniquely restored and integrated around a modern tower block, providing the perfect arena to live, work, relax and play.
The multi-faceted block boasts with a Camelot Spa, a myriad of conference, banqueting and meeting facilities, and is host to; and surrounded by some of the best restaurants and eateries in Cape Town, ranging from Mediterranean to Middle Eastern cuisine.
The bringing together of the two names, Mandela and Rhodes, represents a symbolic moment in the closing of the historic circle, drawing together the legacies of reconciliation and leadership and those of entrepreneurship and education.
Maybe these is the reason then, together with incorporating some of South Africa’s most colourful and diverse culture and history, for being voted as one of the finest establishment in Africa.
