This past weekend we participated in a trial run and mountain bike event in the Zuurberg. We wanted to stay close to the area where the events took place, required catering for the whole weekend and stay in comfortable lodgings with enough space and also have enough activities to keep the kids entertained as well. We were 3 families with kids ranging from 2 to 16 years old and we used 4 different rooms.
What a special weekend it turned out to be. The rooms are spacious and have all the necessities and luxury extras that one can think of. There is lovely grassed areas, a heated rock pool and a warm spa, beautiful views across the valley to enjoy both sunrise and sunset and the central dining and entertainment area is great.
Our hosts, Magna and Rod, made the weekend even more special. They are on top of their game, know the area very well, are both super cooks and their warmth and enthusiasm made the meals and sundowners even more enjoyable.
The meals very fantastic - very tasty snacks with the sundowners, kudu steaks to die for, a large tasty breakfast that will carry you through the day to the next wonderful dinner. Well priced wine list with enough variety to cater for all tastes as well.
To Magna and Rod - thanks for a wonderful weekend, we will be back for next year's event and know already where we will stay.
