Eating scrambled eggs and half a grapefruit for breakfast every morning, even if it’s your favourite food, could eventually get a little bit monotonous. Likewise, no matter how snug your heart is at the place you call home, getting away for a night or two can be a better feeling than finding left-over cake in the office kitchen. Shake things up a bit with today’s Groupon and pay R375 per apartment per night on a minimum of two night’s accommodation at Status Hotel Legae Suites.
Like anything that’s been around for more than twenty seconds, society has ascribed an entire encyclopaedia of horror stories to nights in hotels; rooms too tiny to swing a cabbage, overpriced mini-bars stocked with obscure tins of nuts and house-keeping that moves things around to incomprehensible places no matter how many Do Not Disturb signs you put up. The self-catering apartments at Legae Suites are a perfect escape from all these dismaying downfalls of hotel history. The suites are also conveniently located directly adjacent to Muelmed-Medi Clinic in Arcadia, so if the shock of finding someplace so magnificent becomes too much, help is right there.
Whether you’re looking for some time away with your special-friend or you want to imitate the rock-star lifestyle with a buddy without getting yelled at for not making the bed, two nights in the self-catering apartments will fulfil any fancy. Fall asleep on the queen sized bed with the flat screen TV blaring in the next room, or just laze on the leather couch with a good book. If you find yourself fighting the cosiness of your bed in fear of scallywags stealing the milk from your kitchenette, you can rest easy knowing that the premises are guarded 24 hours a day.
Board and Lodging Fact: A hotel in East Texas has gained international popularity for its eccentricity. Each room is a self-contained green-house and guests sleep on packed grass and instead of ordering room service, pick the vegetables that grow on the walls.
