Dear Irene, First and foremost, thank you for contacting our hotel and show interest in our festive events. The two main events we will celebrate in our hotel are Christmas Lunch and New Years Eve. Here in South Africa we use to celebrate more the lunch than the dinner on Christmas Day, so our dinner will be more conventional. Please send me your email address so we can send you the menus. I remain at your total disposal for any further information you may need. Warmest regards, Daniel Méndez General Manager NH The Lord Charles

"request for a room closer to the Garden Terraces pool area - else it is a LONG walk"
"No lifts, so ask for ground floor. Front block suites are superb."
"To avoid stairs request ground floor."
"Front rooms open up to a garden with a beautiful view over the ocean and the mountains"
"Choose the standard or superior rooms with the king size beds on the first floor facing the garden, very quiet"
US$87 - US$145 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
