Thank you, we’ll be back!

WE WERE lucky enough to win the Tsogo Sun In­ter­na­tional Com­pe­ti­tion last year. Un­for­tu­nately, the ho­tel where we were sup­posed to stay was fully booked. How­ever, Dar­ren Hail­stones and Neo Maz­ibuko were able to get us our two-night stay at South­ern Sun – The Cul­li­nan.

Firstly, thank you to Dar­ren and Neo for be­ing so ac­com­mo­dat­ing and help­ful. Our ex­pe­ri­ence at The Cul­li­nan can­not be put into words.

When walk­ing in, guests are greeted with friendly smiles from staff. The grandeur of the foyer, with its warm colours, must be seen to be be­lieved. The staff are al­ways will­ing to help, and every ques­tion will be an­swered to its full ex­tent. There is an al­ways-on-time shut­tle to the Victoria and Al­fred Wa­ter­front and back, which runs every hour for your con­ve­nience.

The break­fast was in­cred­i­ble. A large se­lec­tion of food was avail­able; from breads, to eggs and ba­con, to salmon and cheese. The staff were ef­fi­cient, and our cof­fee/tea was poured as soon as we sat down. The view from the break­fast room was the lux­u­ri­ous out­door area, with a large, warm-wa­ter pool.

Our room was wait­ing for us with a com­pli­men­tary bot­tle of wine and an as­sort­ment of sweets and nuts.

We had a beau­ti­ful view of the har­bour (which cre­ated a great spot for watch­ing the Cape storm, and the large waves). Nougat was wait­ing for us on our pulled-back bed each night when we came back from our Cape Town ad­ven­tures.

Over­all, the ex­pe­ri­ence was more than we had ever hoped for. We would like to thank In­de­pen­dent Travel Club, es­pe­cially Awande and Vanessa.

Fur­ther­more, we thank South­ern Sun for a great two-night stay and we look for­ward to go­ing to Cape Town for an­other Tsogo Sun ex­pe­ri­ence. Ir­mie Jansen
