Shore’s Edge Guesthouse

If Team #FinishTime were to be asked to paint a picture of paradise, they may very well paint a picture of Shore’s Edge Guesthouse in Hermanus. However, since we are race timers and definitely not painters, our words will have to suffice. As the name implies, Shore’s Edge is located right on the Hermanus seafront, offering an outdoor pool as well as a wrap-around balcony from which to enjoy the majestic 180-degree sea views. The…

Cape Town Lodge Hotel & Conference Centre

One of the many things that Team #FinishTime loves about Cape Town Lodge Hotel & Conference Centre is its location. Being in the very heart of Cape Town means that it’s super easy for members of our team to get to any meeting or any race. If you’re there on holiday, rather than for work, you have the major advantage of having easy access to a wide range of tourist attractions including the V&A Waterfront,…

Ammazulu African Palace

In the words of members of Team #FinishTime, the Ammazulu African Palace in Kloof is nothing short of “legendary”!

Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary

Team #FinishTime’s adventures often take us out of the country and into various parts of Southern Africa.

Located just 27km from Mbabane and 30km from Manzini, it’s an accessible way to experience some of the very best that…

Masada Guest House

If it’s laid-back country-style vibes you’re after, we can highly recommend Masada Guest House in Langebaan, which offers every imaginable creature comfort and luxury. Being situated just 120km north of Cape Town, it’s within easy reach, whether you’re travelling for business or for pleasure. Langebaan is situated in close proximity to a number of the towns for which the West Coast is famous, including Paternoster and Velddrift, and it’s an ideal base from which to…

Stumble Inn

Accommodation meets art at Stumble Inn, which is a guesthouse that you’ll find in a quiet cul-de-sac in Nahoon Beach, East London. “So what makes this guesthouse arty?” we hear you ask. Every piece of furniture and décor item was individually handcrafted by local artists, and the owners of Stumble Inn are recognised as movers and shakers in the field of “pop art” design and décor. If you’re looking for a room that’s decidedly different,…

Bateleur Guesthouse

Picturesque surroundings, friendly service and a comfortable stay can all be found at Bateleur Guesthouse, which is in the heart of Wilkoppies in Klerksdorp. This guesthouse is a beautiful stately home that has been renovated, and now provides 11 en-suite bedrooms, together with reception and dining areas, and a conference centre. Seemingly endless green lawns and an inviting pool make the gardens of Bateleur Guesthouse extremely inviting, and our team expressed disappointment that, seeing as…

Swadini, A Forever Resort

If you’re looking for grand scenery and experience of the great outdoors then, according to members of Team #FinishTime, Swadini, A Forever Resort is the place you need to go. Our race timers were mind-blown by the breathtaking beauty of the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, and have vowed to go back in a non-working capacity the first chance they get to check out some of the natural wonders of the area, such as God’s…
