According to members of Team #FinishTime, who recently had the privilege of staying at Del Roza Guest House in Middelburg, this spot is the perfect place to go when you need to escape from the rat race. Think country town, warm hospitality and a freshly renovated 100-year-old homestead that’s close to everything Middelburg has to offer.
The accommodation on offer at Del Roza consists of eight luxurious rooms complete with comfortable beds, a bouquet of DSTV channels and tea and coffee-making facilities. There’s also a desk, which is always a bonus for a race timer who has some pre-race or post-race work to do. In short, Del Roza’s rooms offer the perfect way to relax or, in the words of one of our race timers, to “chillax”.
Speaking of “chillaxing”, there’s also a pool at Del Roza, so if you’re in the area on business or for a holiday during the summer months, it offers the perfect place to cool down after a typically hot day on the Lowveld.
Set in beautifully landscaped gardens, Del Roza Guest House is, as their website advertises, a place where you will arrive as a guest, but leave as a friend.
