At Cape Palms, the motto is “feel at home away from home” and Team #FinishTime certainly felt as though this was the case. Whether you’re looking for a holiday spot, somewhere to stay when you go to Cape Town on business, or somewhere to stay for your next race in the Mother City, you’ve come to the right place. Situated at 33 De Grendel Road in Parow North, Cape Palms offers a garden, outdoor swimming…"Cape Palms"
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…"Shore’s Edge Guesthouse"
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,…"Cape Town Lodge Hotel & Conference Centre"
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…"Masada Guest House"
As the old real estate adage goes, it’s all about location, location, location. When it comes to the perfect location for a Cape Town holiday, it doesn’t get better than The Fritz Hotel, which you will find in the heart of Cape Town’s city centre, just a stone’s throw from attractions such as Parliament, the Company’s Garden and Greenmarket Square. Table Mountain is a mere 4km away, with the V&A Waterfront being just slightly further…"The Fritz Hotel"
Our team has located a little gem in the heart of Stellenbosch – Buiten Geluk. It is situated in close proximity to Stellenbosch University, Coetzenburg Stadium, Village Museum Stellenbosch and a wide variety of other Stellies favourites. There are so many things to love about Stellenbosch – from the nearby wine farms to the museums, art galleries and picturesque university buildings – and with a great spot to rest their heads, our team felt there…"Buiten Geluk"
One of Team #FinishTime’s favourite spots when we need overnight accommodation in the Western Cape is Swartberg Street Guest House in the charming town of Laingsburg, which is the gateway to the Great Karoo. Good old-fashioned hospitality is a way of life here, and the units are equipped with comfortable double or single beds, kitchens and braai facilities – but meals are also available if you don’t want to cook, which is often a popular…"Swartberg Street Guest House"
With the spectacular views of Cape Town that our race timers have enjoyed from the Southern Sun Cape Sun, it’s no wonder that they are always keen to go back. From Table Mountain and Table Bay right to Robben Island, the views are hard to forget. The facilities offered by this hotel are rather memorable as well — these include a fitness centre, indoor pool and a spa. For those needing to host a conference,…"Southern Sun Cape Sun"
Whenever Team FinishTime times an event in or around Cape Town, one of our favourite places to stay at is the President Hotel in Bantry Bay. The area is central to anywhere we need to be in the Mother City, and the fact that Bantry Bay enjoys an average of 290 wind-free days per year is an added bonus. The hotel’s website boasts that sophisticated luxury and personal service come standard, and our team has…"The President Hotel"
