There’s nothing worse than a romantic notion that doesn’t go to plan. What’s intended as a candle-lit dinner with red wine, followed by a rose petal path leading to an aromatherapy massage can just as easily turn into a singed curtain, red-wine stained carpet and a trip to the vet because the cat ate the rose petals. Leave your romantic night in someone else’s hands with a one night’s stay for two people, including breakfast, chocolates and a bottle of wine for R699 at Feathers Lodge.
Whether your romantic nights tend to turn disastrous or not – today’s Groupon shouldn’t be missed. Set in the northern suburb of Durbanville, a rather elite address, the Feathers Lodge is an award-winning guest house that’s been servicing with a smile and accommodating conferences since it was built in 1998. With a team so dynamic they would make a space pirate seem boring, Feathers Lodge is renowned for providing every guest with all the right ingredients for a perfect stay: highly experienced hosting, friendliness and professionalism and excellent food and lodging.
To put the cherry on the sundae, each individual room is adorned with beautiful décor and inspired by a feathery friend; whether you enjoy a wicked night’s sleep in the Wag Tail room or gather some generous sleeping miles in the Guinea Fowl or Flamingo Room, each room boasts an en-suite bathroom and shower, air-con (hot and cold) and a flat screen television.
Since Feathers Lodge has more class than a First Lady’s wardrobe, they’re including in the deal a fine bottle of wine and a bountiful breakfast for two; a little safer than a romantic dinner and something for you to enjoy without fear of setting anything alight or poisoning domestic animals with rose petals. For a night to remember that doesn’t begin to resemble a slapstick comedy; treat your love to a disaster-free dream date at Feathers Lodge.
For facts sake: The hit song “The Photo Album Killer” is based on a real-life date that a woman was taken on. Lyrics like “I feel like I’m stuck in a room with no doors or windows” all refer to how much she hated the man, whom she later married.
