1 March - The Royal Opening of The Silo Hotel
We have been anticipating the opening of this unique and exciting hotel for quite some time, the brand new Silo Hotel, part of the Royal Portfolio, is set to open it's doors to the public on the 1st March 2017. With just 28 rooms, hand designed by the own, Liz Biden herself, this is sure to be a luxury experience like no other in the Mother City. The Silo boasts a luxurious, modern vibe, as well as the perfect location in the V&A Waterfront.

Trying to come up with superlatives to describe Ellerman House is like taking a picture of the very best view you’ve ever seen and realising how it just never does the landscape justice (at least when I take photos) and the descriptions I give for Ellerman House will wain in comparison to experiencing it first hand.
Hotels are always vying for the best views in their location. The Cape Grace Hotel which is situated at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa can most certainly boast about theirs.
We were lucky enough to spend a night in one of their "Table Mountain Luxury Rooms". It is definitely luxurious, containing a fabulous bathroom with beautiful counter tops and comfortable bath and shower. The linens are excellent and the touches of colour combined with history throughout the hotel create not just a great ambience but also an experience you don’t normally associate with a hotel. However, the greatest asset that this room has is a breath-taking view. You are first met with the sight of bobbing yachts in the marina right next door to the Cape Grace, but if you take a look around, you also receive views of Lions Head and Table Mountain, iconic landmarks of Cape Town.
Perched perfectly on the edge of a cliff, clings Cape View Clifton, a small, intimate, modern chic beach house. Spread over four floors the guesthouse can accommodate a maximum of 20 guests in total split between Junior Suites, Deluxe Suites, one 3 bedroom and one 2 bedroom apartments. Cape View presents a few things that differentiate it from any place we have experienced before. These include: the most incredible view for watching the sunset over the ocean, another is the focus on communal guest areas as well as the hotel is being extension of the owner’s house, which really helps portray the home away from home feeling! But, more on that later.
Nestled in the foothills of Table Mountain, rising high above everyone in Oranjezicht, sits the luxurious and inspiring MannaBay.
It’s evident as soon as you turn into the driveway of this boutique masterpiece that attention to detail was in abundance during the design. The décor both inside and out exhibits the grandeur of this establishment. The owner designed the interior of MannaBay, it’s one of his passionate hobbies, and it is truly stunning. The walls themselves are features of the décor, with different patterns and colours accenting different characters in each room, but combining to create unpretentious luxury. The more time that you spend examining the style, the more you begin to envy it and wish you could box it all up and take it home with you.
