November 5, 2008 was a beautiful evening to celebrate an auspicious occasion, the unveiling of the extensive renovations to The Devon Valley Hotel outside Stellenbosch, including twenty new luxurious rooms, the extended Flavours restaurant and a stylish new entrance area adjacent the terrace where VIP guests and media enjoyed cocktails, canapés and a picturesque view over the valley. Flattering comments about the stunning view abounded from guests, who included executive director of the Cape Chamber of Commerce Albert Schuitmaker. Guests also commented favourably about the decorative flair of Craig Seaman, MD of Hotels, Spas & Vineyards, which is self-evident in the gorgeous new Vineyard Rooms with their contemporary finishes and unmatched views.
“We`ve incorporated unique touches to all fifty rooms, to the extent that regular guests often request a specific room. But despite the ambiance giving individual rooms their distinctive personality, elements such as a common underlying pallet create the characteristic unity running throughout the hotel,” says Craig commenting about the decor.
In his speech at the launch event, Craig Seaman encouraged all present to continue creating cherished memories in this truly special setting.
