Aha Simon’s Town Quayside Hotel, in the Western Cape, will undergo an R8.6 million (€587 000) refurbishment. The hotel will be closed from April 18 until August.

All 26 bedrooms will receive a complete transformation with an additional three rooms added, bringing the total number of rooms to 29.

Bath tubs will be replaced with showers to ensure water conservation and sustainability. Advanced technological features will be added, including the upgrading of the television sets, WiFi access and new lockset handles.

“This quaint hotel is steeped in history and renovating it not only ensures that we preserve its prestige but we also look forward to providing our guests with more enhanced services, quality rooms and facilities,” said Neil Bald, aha Hotels & Lodges CEO.
