In 2017, Biggy Best Cottages in Howick was awarded the Travellers’ Choice Award for being rated one of the top accommodation destinations in the area. If it was up to us, they would get this award every year.
The level of hospitality that Team #FinishTime was shown when they stayed here in August 2019 was second to none, and we can vouch for the fact that the Biggy Best team is not kidding when they say that they epitomise the authentic African values of hard work and warm hospitality.
The weekend of 23-25 August was far from a relaxing holiday for our team, as our job was to bring runners accurate and up-to-the-second results at the gruelling Mandela Day Marathon. This meant long days for our team of 17, and we felt extremely blessed that the staff at Biggy Best were more than happy to serve us a hot meal when we got “home” at around 9pm. The in-house restaurant made a fantastic change from many nights when we had had to find fast food.
We also loved the setting of Biggy Best, which lies in the shade of beautiful old trees which are home to an abundance of birds. Many of commented that we’d love to come back here for a holiday or a non-working weekend, especially since Howick Falls and the Midlands Meander are just a stone’s throw away.
A range of accommodation options are available to suit the needs of a big corporate group like us, a family, a group of friends or a couple needing some time to themselves.
