Cape Town hotels 'best for World Cup'

Article content

30 March 2010

People looking to cheer on their nation's side during the upcoming Fifa World Cup should book a hotel in Cape Town, new research has suggested.

The South African city was voted the fairest in terms of price in a recent month-long survey by professional services firm Grant Thornton.

Only 20 per cent of hotels in the area are charging more than 50 per cent over their usual peak-season rates, compared with 65 per cent and 53 per cent of resorts in Johannesburg and Durban respectively.

According to the company, Cape Town is offering fair deals on its accommodation due to its excellent capacity and an ethical cost campaign by the local tourism board.

"I strongly believe that our consistent messaging around responsible pricing and the industry's commitment have paid off," chief executive officer of Cape Town Tourism, Mariette Du-Toit Helmbold, said.

Cape Town was recently described as a destination that visitors "have to see" by Suite 101 writer Gillian Handley.
