Supercool city's top hotel offering night for free deal
12:17pm Friday 18th May 2012 in Travel
ONE of the best hotels in the world is offering knock down rates until November.
The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town overlooks Table Mountain and is the perfect base for a trip to one of the coolest cities on the planet.
The Table Bay Hotel is on Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and all rooms and suites have panoramic views that either look over the Atlantic Ocean to historic Robben Island, or across the bay to iconic Table Mountain. Cape Town is hosting a variety of events this year including Cape Town Fashion Week (13 – 16 July 2012) and Table Bay Hotel is the perfect location to explore the best of cosmopolitan Cape Town and beyond. And from now until November 30, guests can enjoy four nights for the price of three at the Table Bay Hotel. Added to the free night deal the hotel's Atlantic Grill is launching two gourmet experiences to introduce guests to typical Capetonian food – a new Cape Malay menu with beer tasting and a Flynbos cookery experience. A spokesman for the hotel said: "Whilst the former is a showcase of the best Cape Malay cuisine paired with traditionally brewed Capetonian beers, the latter encourages guests to take part in this unique cooking experience, accompanying the chef into the collect of Fynbos (indigenous plants found in the south-western and southern Cape and unique to South Africa), followed with a five-course tasting menu prepared by executive sous-chef Adrian Schreuder created with plants collected afresh in the morning.
"The High Tea at The Table Bay Hotel is internationally renowned. The team responsible for this daily treat has recently launched tea pairing, where an exclusive selection of teas are paired with the traditional sweet delicacies."
The spokesman added: "Some of the pastry chef’s creations include cherry and dark chocolate tart with pistachio brittle paired with Sakura, a cherry flavoured tea, or why not sample the caramel parfait served with white chocolate mousse and peanut caramel paired with African sun, a cardamom flavoured tea."
