I recently had the privilege of attending an Avon launch at the Hilton in Cape Town , I am ashamed to say I didn't even know we had a 'Hilton' ..hangs head. 

I found the Hotel without much effort and I must say I was impressed by the elegance, style and sophistication that just seemed to pour out of every nook and cranny.

I enjoyed my short visit and I will be back after seeing the Chef's specials below, here take a look ...

It’s time to cozy up and embrace the signs of winter’s arrival at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cape Town, Upper Eastside. Leisure and business guests are invited to come and drink a glass of warming red wine in at the bar, take advantage of seasonal conferencing specials and indulge in the new menu at Liberty’s Restaurant.
