Anew Hilton Hotel

If you’ve ever been to the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, then we don’t need to tell you how quaint and picturesque the area is. What you may not know, however, is that the iconic Anew Hotel Hilton, originally established in 1936, boasts 97 renovated rooms with every modern amenity. Whether you’re in the area for a race, for work or just to explore, Anew Hotel Hilton is an ideal home base in the Midlands. We asked our…

Southey House

Since Team #FinishTime’s base is in Kloof, it’s not every day that we look for accommodation in this area. However, when we’re bringing team members from around the country “home” for an event or a company conference, it’s time to look for accommodation close to home. Southey House in Kloof proved to be a wonderful temporary home for team members coming in from various parts of the country. They got to enjoy breathtaking views over…

Holland House

A group of Team #FinishTime staff members recently stayed at Holland House in Morningside, Durban and we had a fantastic stay for an array of reasons. Firstly, you can’t beat Holland House for its location in Morningside. Situated between Innes Road and Wallace Road, it provides quick proximity to shops and eateries while also giving you a feeling of being tucked away in a quiet, secluded neighbourhood. Secondly, the service offered was second to none,…

Bastille de Blignaut

It’s not every day that a race timer gets to stay in a castle, but the exception came when our team arrived at Edenvale’s Bastille de Blignaut. The rooms’ mediaeval theme, together with the regal structure of the building as a whole, truly made us feel like royalty. And of course, the fantastic service we received from the staff was the final jewel in the crown. The royal theme is continued in the naming of…

Mhlati Guest Cottages

When our team arrived at Mhlati Guest Cottages, the first thing that struck them was the utter serenity that it offers. Upon walking outside our unit, we were greeted by a secluded lawn, a swimming pool and comfortable chairs shaded by lush greenery and trees. We couldn’t have imagined a better place to relax and unwind after a hard day’s travelling or race timing.  You’ll find these cottages a few kilometres from Malelane, which makes…

Stayeasy Mbombela

With an ideal location, comfortable rooms, breakfast, free uncapped WiFi and great value for money, it’s no surprise that Stayeasy Mbombela is a firm favourite among people visiting Mbombela for work or pleasure. Members of Team #FinishTime who stayed here particularly enjoyed the opportunity to relax in the pool and the gardens – and their biggest regret was that time unfortunately did not allow them to make a trip into the much-loved Kruger National Park.…

Meet Mekaar Resorts Nquthu

In the words of one reviewer, Meet Mekaar Resorts Nquthu is said to be “a friendly and peaceful place in the middle of the busyness of Nquthu”. According to members of our team who stayed at the resort while timing a race in the area, they couldn’t have said it better themselves.  After a busy day’s race timing, our team found it a relief to retreat to their room’s balcony with a cup of coffee…

Bon Hotel Bloemfontein Central

If you’re looking for central and convenient accommodation in Bloemfontein, it’ll be tough to find a place better than BON Hotel Bloemfontein Central. It’s situated right in the Bloem Plaza shopping centre, so anything you need is on your doorstep. Our team also loved the restaurant, the fact that there are workspaces and WiFi in each room and the friendly ambience. Another factor which makes BON Hotel a super convenient choice is that it offers…

SunSquare Cape Town Gardens

Several members of Team #FinishTime stayed at SunSquare Cape Town Gardens when in the Mother City to time one of our bigger events, and the general consensus was that this is an outstanding place to stay, whether you’re on a work trip or a holiday. The first of many reasons for this was the comfortable rooms. Each has an en-suite bathroom, aircon, a mini fridge and a flatscreen TV. Also (and this is always a…

Leopardsong Manor

The fact that you’re on a work trip can be easy to forget when you’re looking out over one of the country’s best golf courses from your suite. Members of Team #FinishTime recently had the privilege of staying at Leopardsong Manor in Centurion Golf Estate. The Manor offered the double benefit of being close to where we needed to be to time our race and giving us the opportunity to go for a relaxing walk…
