This time last year we celebrated my Husbands 70th Birthday with you at Derwent House, even the memories are wonderful. Never stayed in such a welcoming, beautiful place in my entire life! Thank you to the team, keep safe.
Südafrika. Unsere Reisedestination des Wochenendes. Der Morgennebel hebt sich und die Gipfel der Tafelbergkette zeigen sich in der ganzen Pracht. Beim Derwent House schmeckt man die duftenden Aromen des reichhaltigen Frühstücks und man spürt das Versprechen eines weiteren, schönen Tages im Herzen von Kapstadt. Alles Wissenswerte und die Buchungsmöglichkeit findest Du hier: https://www.regenwaldreisen.ch/suedafrika-westkap-kapstadt-derwent-house-boutique-hotel.html

I was was once an Intern of Derwent House boutique hotel...honestly one of the best place I happened to learn skills and just being generally handy and confused...So today the fridge at home broke and I figured I had to so something cause I'm the only guy at home...but in conclusion I got it fixed lol ..I remembered wise words from my ex General manager Luca Gobler who always told me if theres a problems at least try and get a solution before you go ask elsewhere cause your answer might be just infront of you... I just wanted to appreciate in passing the lessons and people I worked with there it wasn't easy but it sure was a family and home :) happy holidays everyone
