THE HOUSE AND LEISURE/VISA BEST OF SA AWARDS
South Africa’s favourite lifestyle magazine, House and Leisure has just announced its finalists for this year’s best restaurants, and Hartford House is obviously greatly proud to be included in the top five alongside the big names like Le Colombe, Marianas, Ritrivo and The Tasting Room. What a statement for the standards Jackie Cameron and her team have set in the Hartford kitchen, especially considering that it’s the only restaurant in KwaZulu-Natal to have made the cut, and of course, our own isolation in Mooi River. Three of the other finalists are Western Cape-based, while one is in Johannesburg.
Significantly, in the other categories, two of our colleagues in the Land Of Legends (www.landoflegends.co.za) have made the finals. In the Lodge division, The Homestead at Phinda Resource Reserve is among the final five, while Fordoun makes the last four in the Spa category.
That’s some statement on the standards you can expect from our membership of what is, without any doubt, the best collection of properties in this province, and if we may be a little cheeky, perhaps in any province.
