So, I won a night away at The Westcliff for this weekend past, it was a amazing timing cause not only was it for Valentines day but our 4th anniversary was on friday 12th!

We were so spoilt.  When we arrived we found out we had been upgraded from a luxury room to a loft suite.  Wow! So much of luxury and spoiling.  The bathroom alone was bigger than Aaron’s room.  We had a balcony with the most amazing view and a sitting area that played host to a bottle of champagne and six chocolate covered strawberries on our arrival.

We were treated to a romantic turn down service which consisted of long stemmed red roses, white rose petals on the bath matt and beside our bed, candles ready for our bath and our bath robes laid out and ready for us.

Dinner was a five course wonder.  We each had a different menu, great for sharing over romantic candle light on the restaurant balcony.  We started with sushi followed by lobster and langoustine ravioli. Next was a palette cleansing sorbet.  The main course of lamb, potato and veggies was next.  We both had lamb but each was prepared differently.  This was followed by deep fried camembert and cranberries for Paul and haloumi cheese for me, we swapped that course around.  Dessert was a chocolate brownie with ice-cream for Paul and a cheese cake and strawberry compote for me.

We literally rolled into bed.

Breakfast was amazing, a full continental breakfast as well as poached eggs for me and an english breakfast for Paul.

Throughout our stay the staff were amazing, always smiling and ready to help in any way.  Definitely five star service!

We were very sad to leave after breakfast but what a treasured memory.  If only we could spend every anniversary/Valentines in such opulent surroundings…

I won!

A few days ago, while playing Scrabble on Facebook, I noticed an ad for Wicount Joburg in the righthand panel.  At the bottom of the ad it said that Syllable was a fan of the page.  So, I clicked through and saw that the page was running a competition to win a nights stay at the Westcliff Hotel on Valentines weekend.

I thought what the heck and became a fan of the page and entered the sweepstakes.

Yesterday as I was ready to head out the office for lunch I got a call from Paul saying that he had a call from one of the guys at Wicount to say that I had won and that they were waiting for me to respond to the email they had sent!

Holy crud buckets! I won!!

What makes the prize even more special is that not only is it for the day before Valentines day but Friday is our 4 year anniversary!

What a way to spend it!!

Thanks again guys for the amazing prize!
