Night out


The kind people from the Protea Fire & Ice! Hotel in Menlyn treated us last weekend on a night out. And by treated I mean like royalty - complete with dinner and breakfast the following morning. We were transported into a totally different world, one we as parents are definitely not used to anymore. The place was clad with well dressed trend-setters and it seemed like the who's who from the social scene in Pretoria were there.

We had sun-downers on the deck and watched the autumn sun turning the city into a purple-pink-orange haze. We then had a spectacular dinner - The Husband had a lamb shank and I had the Norwegian salmon on wasabi mashed potatoes. I then absolutely HAD to have their Oreo milkshake, which I couldn't finish. With almost bursting bellies we headed to our room and crashed on our bed. Needless to say there was white linen, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this review...

The personal touch was really something. The manager wrote us a welcoming note and left snacks for us in our room, which we totally devoured within 5 seconds of arrival.  

What impressed me most of all was the staff. From the moment you set foot into the lobby, there were friendly, helpful people all around. This is Zama. She makes perfect eggs for breakfast.

We really appreciate the invitation to spend the night and the hospitality of the team (as well as our kind neighbour Lize who offered to babysit Finn).
