Why The Table Bay Hotel is the most WONDERFUL address in Cape Town

Over Easter weekend, our little family stayed at the Table Bay Hotel. As I start this I don’t even know how to give this magnificent residence the justice that it demands. What makes The Table Bay Hotel the best address in the Cape? Is it the building, the staff, rooms, the view? Is their credibility serviced by ridiculous amounts of famous people that have stayed there and regularly do? Is it the food, the high tea or the pool? When you go to a hotel – what makes you go back? Here’s why:
1. They have the Oscar’s Kids Club over Easter and Christmas holidays. If you have children and if you’re coming to Cape Town in December, then look me in my hazel brown eyes and promise that you’ll stay here. They had a daily program of activities, arts, crafts, games, songs, baking and cooking set for each … Read the rest

Our weekend travels: Betty’s Bay and Stanford in the Cape Overberg. Do it.

We spent this weekend in the Overberg, visiting my mom in Betty’s Bay and taking a trip out to Hermanus and Stanford. We’d been to Stanford before and every time is brand new – another little antique store you haven’t seen, another restaurant you haven’t tried or little gravel road you haven’t followed before. It’s tricky traveling with two busy boys, so after several recommendations we decided to visit Madre’s Kitchen and Stanford Hills.
Madre’s Kitchen is VERY beautiful. Honestly, it is hands-down the most picturesque restaurant we’ve ever been to, like something out of The Secret Garden – the way you imagined it as a little girl. The boys disappeared to the pond, hills, trees, geese, jungle gym and trampoline immediately. They were thoroughly delighted.
We didn’t eat here. It was a busy day with school holidays on the go, so they were running out of food and the … Read the rest
