Like bobotie-making baboons, a really good bed and breakfast getaway is hard to come by. Though abundant and plentiful, the art of expertly fusing a bed and a breakfast is a hard task to accomplish when it doesn’t involve sticking a cereal bowl to the headboard on your bed. Rise and shine to a sumptuous morning with today’s Groupon: a romantic night for two, including a champagne breakfast for R625 at Grande Kloof Boutique Hotel.
Firmly nestled between Sea Point and Bantry, against the picturesque backdrop of Lions Head, Grande Kloof Boutique Hotel is a tranquil breakaway from the inner-city buzz, without having to go too far. Situated within walking distance of Cape Town’s breathtaking beaches, the lodge boasts more spectacular views than a drag queen’s pageant show on Guyfawke’s Day. With Lions Head lazily beside you, Robben Island ahead and the bustling city life below, there’s no escaping a whirlwind romantic reawakening.
As a cool and comfortable inner city hideout, when the hubbub below begins to take its toll, you can simply retreat to your intimate cocoon-esque room. Complete with en-suite, shower and satellite TV, you’re welcome to spend your night and day enjoying the spoils of a lazy escape far from the maddening crowds, gazing out at the sea and mountain views from the patio, while you recline lazily on a sunbed and work on your tan.
Wake up refreshed and revitalised with an expertly crafted breakfast awaiting your arrival. Tending to the night’s fast in style, the champagne breakfast offers a delightful treat to tantalize your taste buds. Fulfilled from an experience appealing to all your senses, don’t be surprised when you and your partner discover you’ve fallen for all the charm of the Grande Kloof Boutique Hotel.
