SANLAM Top Destination 2015 Award - The Hideaway wins!

Hello everyone, it's Per, the cat that runs The Hideaway in Swellendam, you know - that wonderful little B&B on the Garden Route.  I was so cross on Thursday 29 October because my staff just up and left without so much as a by your leave!  They just got in the car and drove away.  Luckily Tannie Anelma was here to give me hugs and make my supper, but what is a cat to do when their staff doesn't tell them that they are zooming off somewhere?  Well anyway, you wouldn't believe it, but the very next day about 2 o'clock in the afternoon, they came back!  Waltzed in as if nothing had happened!  larger than life! Plonked a strange statuette of a lady leaning over backwards on the table and hung a certifi-cat on the wall.  Now, my reading is not so good, because I'm a cat, but Anelma said that it was the Top Destination Award for 2015 for 5 star B&Bs from someone called SANLAM.  Not sure what that was about, but apparently, my staff had a phone call about a month ago informing them that they were finalists in the competition run by Discount Traveller and inviting them to a Gala Dinner at Ratanga Junction.  That's why they left me, you see.  Some of our lovely guests had voted for The Hideaway and they WON!  Well, when I knew that, I was prepared to forgive them for walking out on me like that.  Just wished they'd said! Anyway, can't stop, just heading for a cat-nap in my favourite spot .......
