The Cape Milner revamps roomsOctober 28th, 2011 by Susan Reynard | Categories: hotels, industry
The Cape Milner has unveiled of 45 newly refurbished standard rooms. The revamped rooms have been fitted with new furniture and amenities, as well as floors and ceilings resulting in an “urban chic” look. The new look and feel now links the room design in with the rest of the boutique hotel in Tamboerskloof.
The rooms have a spacious feel which has been achieved by using a neutral palette, lifted by texture and vibrant accents. The warm texture of the timber floors and paneling are contrasted with the white duco units, mirror panels and white bed linen. The rooms display the creative artwork of South African photographer Kyle Mijlos, taken during his travels throughout Africa. Silk cushions and chenille throws provide a splash of colour to the rooms.
Interior designer Beth Murray has been involved with refurbishments at the hotel for almost a decade, ensuring that the property’s style keeps continuity as it evolves.
She says: “The Cape Milner’s style hasn’t changed a great deal, but the revamp of our rooms have made it more current.”
The room revamp confirms the hotel’s status as being awarded “Best Accommodation”, in the recent “South African Tourism Welcome Awards 2011”at this year’s Indaba.
