We’ve been big fans of Leriba Hotel and Spa, as well as the local restaurants on site – Hemingways and Chapters!
We attended numerous events there already – from glorious bubbly sipping afternoons to wine dinner evenings to Symphony Orchestra performances. And if you are looking for a fantastic meal in Pretoria/Centurion – you MUST give Hemingways a try. You will not be disappointed! PS: They are taking part in Restaurant Week! The ideal opportunity to visit Hemingways 🙂 Restaurant Week Pretoria Restaurants -select the date to get started!
At last year’s Bubbly Affair event we actually won as one of the Best Dressed Couples, and we were lucky enough to win a stayover at the hotel. And we FINALLY had the chance to take advantage of it on Friday (31st March). And, with luxury accommodation sorted (so not even the need to Uber), we also had the opportunity to attend one of their fabulous wine tasting evenings – with Doolhof Wines. More about this later in April on our blog www.socialsavage.wordpress.com (SOON TO BE MOVED TO OUR VERY OWN DOMAIN! YAY!)
