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,…

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…

The Old Mushroom Farm

If there’s one thing that Team #FinishTime loves about The Old Mushroom Farm from a purely practical perspective, it’s the versatility of the accommodation on offer. From the Round House, which sleeps up to 12 people in four bedrooms to the Cottages, which sleep four people each, there’s a great option no matter how big a team we have to send to Howick for an event. There’s also a Tunnel Apartment, a Loft and Boutique…

Fern Hill Hotel

Fern Hill Hotel is described as one of the leading hotels in the KZN Midlands, and it was very quick for Team #FinishTime to see why! Being located in close proximity to venues where our clients hold their races, Fern Hill offers the perfect blend of convenience and serenity. Members of our team agreed that if it was not a working weekend, this would be the perfect “home-away-from-home” from which to explore everything that the…

Adding to the fantastic holiday vibes is the fact that Serendipity…
