Accommodation Booking Information

Special accommodation rates have been negotiated with three hotels close to the University of Cape Town. These are the Garden Court Nelson Mandela Boulevard Hotel overlooking the City Centre and Table Bay, the Vineyard Hotel & Spa in the leafy Newlands suburb of Cape Town, and the Southern Sun Newlands Hotel, also located in Newlands.

A fixed number of rooms in each of these hotels has been blocked out for uptake by SEMC 2016 participants until 30 June 2016, after which the rooms will be released to the general public and allocated on an availability basis. Thus to be guaranteed a room, it is important for SEMC 2016 delegates to make their reservations before this date. Bookings must be made directly with the hotels, quoting the reference “SEMC 2016 Conference″. The reservation forms are obtainable via the links below.

Please note that the Garden Court Nelson Mandela Boulevard Hotel and the Southern Sun Newlands Hotel belong to the Tsogo Sun Hotels Group, and the same accommodation booking form is provided for these two hotels (simply tick the boxes of the preferred hotel). If you intend to stay in either of these two hotels, you must email your completed booking form to the Tsogo Sun Central Booking Office as per the contact details given at the bottom of the form, at the same time copying your email to the contact person at the hotel itself (as given under general enquiries below). All three hotels offer the option of single or double room occupancy. For the Vineyard Hotel, delegates will be able to choose between three types of rooms (Courtyard Facing Standard; Courtyard Facing Deluxe; Mountain Facing).

All SEMC 2016 delegates are strongly advised to book their accommodation with one of the three appointed hotels below, for enhanced security, and in order to be entitled to free Conference transport. The Conference organisers will provide scheduled coach transport between these three hotels and the Conference venue throughout the duration of the Conference. It will not be possible to arrange transport for those delegates who chose to stay elsewhere.

Note: The currency used in South Africa is the Rand (ZAR or simply R). At current exchange rates, one Euro is approximately equal to R14-00, and one US Dollar is approximately equal to R13-00.
