    We visited Newlands for an England v South Africa match and had a fantastic afternoon... and the view was just incredible!
    Watching England at Newlands has been on my 'bucket list' for years so last year, we booked tickets and had a mini break in Claremont (20mins walk from the ground). We decided to upgrade to a shared box and despite the facilities being basic, thought the extra was money well spent for the meal, view and extra protection from the searing heat (it was 33°).
    We arrived as early as we could and were only the 3rd group in the box which holds around 20, decided where to sit (I seem to recall we could sit anywhere so chose the frow) and went inside to get a drink. All drinks (alcoholic and non) were included as was a 3 course meal of buffet style hams, samosa style snacks (which were amazing), cheese, fruits etc, a choice of 2 or 3 full on hot meals and lovely chocolate cake. Although seating inside the box was limited, there was plenty outside.
    As mentioned, the facilities are quite basic and the toilets are on alternate levels, so we had to go up a level to use the toilets, but everything was clean (the toilets were cleaned after each use) and tidy and the staff were excellent.
    The game we watched was very close, and the atmosphere in the ground and amongst our fellow fans - both Brits and South Africans - was superb. It ran over time and watching the sun set over the extraordinarily beautiful view was amazing. Definitely worth a visit, and if you can afford to, upgrade to a box for something a little special without losing the atmosphere.

    The baths are full of history and there is still a kind of Victorian feel. Although not modern it is clean and user friendly.

    GrandWest,Used to be a fun place but with my experience from my last visit i doubt it wil be fun anymore.
    I am a skilled player that has over 30 years experience in playing Roulette ,and that is all i am playing,

    They are welcome to Let me do a lie detector on me,
    Never have i cheated and and have lost millions over the years.But picked up skills that makes them use unconventional methods to let you loose .

    I can understand if they use this Methods to get rid of Former dealers ,and dealers from other casinos,that was thought the tricks by Them,

    The Roulette wheels are rigged and we all know it,In all Fairness it is designed for the house to have an edge,Its all fair,but to play against surveillance ,is not fair and to crush Years of experience is not fair .I have lost millions over the years and give me a fair chance to play for it,using surveillance to take my money isn't fair.

    Don't Get me wrong ,i am not a sore looser,but this is the second time this is Happening that i know off.

    Make It a fair game!!!!! My God ,When you have a Atomic bom and i have a bat,Why would you use a atomic bom then,it doesn't make sense.
    People should stay away from Roullette..

    GrandWest Is a Good place ,And Good entertainment,only down Thing is they are Very bad loosers and that to me,is Showing that the Gambling Board allows This to go down.I Can proof that i am skilled,and i can proof that i was target unconventional.

    After 30 years and you don't have i skill set,You should give up .

    Thanks Grand West Showing me You can Bully And Thanks For The Gambling Boards for allowing Things to go down like this,You should look out for the people also not only for the fat cats.

    Best meeting have ever been to, at Kenilworth race course. Overall vibe was awesome, food and entertainment inside the Peninsula Jazz room was amazing. Food and beverages was good value for money. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very organized teams and event was well planned.

    This is ground that I've wanted to visit since I first started watching cricket. It is quite simply spectacular and I'm not sure that the TV does it justice.

    We booked ourselves into the Presidents Lounge and had a spectacular panoramic view of the stadium from our seats. The bar was well stocked and the food was very tasty. I would definitely recommend booking into one of the lounges if you can. You can still take a walk around the whole ground and take in the beautiful view of Table Mountain.

    Went here for a kiddies party - kids loved it. Lots of open space and is super clean and neat.

    Lovely spot for little kiddies party, especially in winter.

    I was fortunate enough to go on a educational tour with Juma's Art Tour.
    It was a worthwhile experience which I highly rate and recommend. The tour was very informative, educative, and fun. Our tour guide Zachariah was great in explaining all the amazing art we saw on tour and the explanations and stories which goes with it was mind-blowing.
    Thank you Juma and Zachariah for a great tour and experience.
    I will definitely be back for more!

    Tables are first come first serve basis, so it is good to be early. Half price on drinks and meals available between 18:00 & 19:00. This gives plenty of time to chat before the show starts at 20:30. Definitely get your order in early, otherwise you wait for a long time. The burgers were average. The salad looked the best, but arrived at our table 30 mins after the burgers. The more people arrive for the show, the busier and noisier it became and tricky for waitrons and customers to navigate between tables. The comedy was good. After the show there is a long line to queue up at the bar for your bill.

    In most of the UK people cannot shoot a handgun. Reserved for police and military. (Northern Ireland is the exception.)
    This place allows tourists from UK and elsewhere to enjoy shooting handguns and bigger.
    Visiting from the UK we had a great time at City Guns. Able to shoot a variety of guns for a reasonable charge. Instruction and guidance makes this suitable for beginners.
    You can even bring kids aged 10-17 for a shooting experience with real guns under expert supervision.
    Friendly reception, great instruction and oversight from Ashley. And Sean in the shop is very likeable and helpful.
    Street parking nearby is 60min max so we parked in a multi-story on Strand Street (orange signs). When we arrived it seems the venue has its own free parking, so do enquire.
    We will be back.
