Cape Town’s tourism community gathered at The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa to celebrate one of South Africa’s leading hoteliers, Horst Frehse, who is retiring following a stellar 45-year career.

His well-earned retirement is a great loss for South Africa’s hotel industry. As one of the country’s most respected and successful hoteliers he has been a mentor, colleague, idol and friend to many.

He was instrumental in The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa’s success over the past five years, thanks to his phenomenal industry connections, his devotion, vivacious nature, and the compassionate heart that he generously shared with his staff, clients and guests from around the world – all of whom will miss him dearly.
