The LIZ McGrath Collection Hotels Included In Top 30 Hotels in Southern Africa (2021 Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards)

Condé Nast Traveler has announced the results of its prestigious 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards, and once again, each of the three hotels within The Liz McGrath Collection was voted one of the top hotels in all of Southern Africa.

This year, Hermanus’ favourite boutique hotel, The Marine, made great strides moving into 4th place with a score of 99.28, while sister-hotels The Cellars-Hohenort retained its spot at number 15, and The Plettenberg holding the 24th place.

The Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. More than 800,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted responses rating their travel experiences across the globe to provide a full snapshot about the places they can’t wait to return to next. The 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards are published on the Condé Nast Traveler’s website and celebrated in the November issue of the magazine.

‘The results of the 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards demonstrate the travel experiences that international readers longed for most when they couldn’t travel, and decided to do first once they could. These accolades come at a most important time while we are preparing to welcome back more international guests to South Africa’, says Jacqui Elliot, CEO of the The Liz McGrath Collection. ‘We are very appreciative of these votes, as well as the loyal support we have had from the local market during the last year. We are seeing a pick-up in reservations enquiries from the international markets and are looking forward to a good summer season.’
