Trail’s End prides itself with being the first Bike Hotel in Africa. The hotel, originally a factory, has been converted specifically with outdoor enthusiasts in mind. Trail’s End is located in Grabouw, at the heart of some of the Western Cape’s most spectacular trails and it’s ideally situated for cycling and trail running buffs who want to explore the Overberg’s Elgin Valley.
This radical venue has an industrial flavour to it, boasting sixteen rooms in total. The mezzanine rooms have private bathrooms and all the rooms below have shared ablutions. Most rooms have a choice of layout options enabling it to be suitable for families, pro-athletes, teams or individuals. There is also the added bonus of safe indoor bike storage for mountain bikes within the hotel itself.
During your stay you can also make use of the purpose built 20m, heated outdoor pool in the courtyard as well as a restaurant which includes healthy menu choices, fresh coffee and craft beer which is brewed on site.
On top of this there is a wellness centre within, the hotel offering Pilates classes on request, as well as a physiotherapist, massage therapist and chiropractor which is great for removing all the aches and pains from a day out adventuring.
The Conference Centre
Within less than 2kms from the famous Elgin Grabouw Country Club – home of the world’s largest XTERRA event and Cape Mile’s Eikenhof Dam – this is the ideal destination for Team Building sessions or Year End Functions with a fresh approach and an active twist. Trail’s End is perfectly positioned at the foot of the Wines2Whales A-Z route with Oak Valley and Paul Cluver cycle trails nearby too.
Cecil Nurse, having a keen interest in the sport of Cycling, were partners in setting up the beautiful, well-appointed and well equipped Conference Centre. With the combination of comfortable beds, healthy food and active and alert minds – this is conferencing at its best.
Trail’s End is conveniently located – an hour’s drive from Cape Town; 40 minutes from Cape Town International Airport; and 45 minutes drive from Stellenbosch and Hermanus.
