Providing copious amounts of chicken soup and orange-juice when your snugglebunny has the sniffles, taking them for tandem bike-rides or being the first to change your relationship status on social networking sites are some of the more subtle romantic gestures. Go big or go home with today’s Groupon and spend a night with your significant other at Vintage Hotel for R500.
One of Durban’s newest deluxe collections of rooms, Vintage Hotel finds its home in the trendy and upmarket suburb of Morningside. Within shouting distance of the city centre, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a tourist, touring wanna-be rockstar or just looking to get out of your own house for a night; Vintage Hotel is the newest place to be seen and the elegant British-era architecture is eye-pleasing accommodation for both history buffs and those who never even took the subject in school.
For those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, seek solace in the sumptuously decorated rooms. Even if you spend all day on the bed, cosier than a cat in a basket full of fresh laundry, or just lazing about watching telly, the classically comfortable rooms offer the perfect place to do that. Maybe you could just get in a good cuddle session before you hit one of the nearby greens or blow some moolah on new shoes at the mall. Close to some major attractions like stadiums and race-courses, there’s no shortage of shenanigans to fill your day with.
In the morning, when you finally win the battle with your alarm clock and manage to drag yourself out of bed, start the day in style with a delicious breakfast. Knowing it’s not you that has to stand in the kitchen scrambling eggs always makes the food taste better. Use two Groupons on your visit to stay for two consecutive nights; perfect for an end-of-week getaway, a romantic getaway or just a getaway to watch The Getaway.
Hotel Fact: The CRAZY TOWN hotel in east-Texas was a getaway destination created especially for celebrities looking to take some time out from their busy lives. The hotel keeps half of its accommodation open for non-celebrities, though rooms need to be booked as far as ten years in advance. All guests at the hotel need to wear baseball caps, fake glasses and stick-on moustaches at all times.
