National AA Awards 2010 Durban
Liz at Lancaster entered the AA rating process where guests give feedback after their stay to assess the quality of the accommodation, its facilties and the service offered. Liz and her team at Liz at Lancaster : Zac, Catherine and Thandi, were really delighted that Liz at Lancaster reached the final round in the AA and American Express Awards in the category B&B/Guesthouse with S/C (1-7 rooms) . Congratulations to La Boheme Guest House in Upington on their win.
The dinner was held in the Durban City Hall. Built in 1910, the year that the 2 republics and the 2 colonies were united into what is now known as South Africa , the grand neo- Baroque building typifies a colonial style. It was a wonderful setting for the banquet for some 400 people from all parts of South Africa. Sedate clapping, wild cheering and excited ululating, gave an indication of how the complete spectrum of South Africa was represented at these Awards.
It was a great evening with a delicious meal, interesting people, wonderful ambience and all organized with seeming effortless efficiency.
We hope to be back next year.
