Mount Sierra, a First Group property at the foot of the Table Mountain, has completed an R11 million (US$748 000) refurbishment of its leisure and business all-inclusive accommodation.

The work forms part of First Group’s large-scale, four-year refurbishment programme of eight properties with a total investment of R179 million ($12m).

Refurbishments at Mount Sierra include a new heated swimming pool and a coffee shop adjacent to the pool area. In the guest accommodation, baths were replaced with walk-in showers in six of the units to encourage guests to save water during their stay.

European-compliant international plugs have been installed beside all the beds and air-conditioning has been upgraded in all main bedrooms and lounges.
