|Welcome to Winter 2018…
This July, Clico celebrates its 12th Birthday, and what a remarkable journey its been over the last 12 years!
It seems like yesterday I took on the challenge on turning a tumbling Cape Dutch house in Rosebank into one of the only boutique hotels in the area. Many people always ask me, “Why did you call it Clico?” – and it’s simply a version of myfavourite Champagne – Veuve Clicquot.
Clico’s growth over the last 12 years has been evolutionary. In 2006, our hotel opened its doors and it wasn’t long before our growing number of guests asked for more, and so in 2010 we added our conferencing facility. In 2014 we gave ourselves a décor facelift and also installed a borehole and generator to mitigate the rolling blackouts and possible drought. It served us well, because in 2015 our guests once again asked for more and we opened Clico Restaurant.
We’ve made it through the economic crisis, achieved our Chaîne des Rôtisseurs accolade, top-ratings on Trip Advisor and made some incredible friends along the way – from all around the world. To me, Clico is still the embodiment of “myneighbours house” from my childhood – warm, inviting, lights-on and special. But it really is thanks to all of our guests over the years – each and everyone one of you – who have made our business thrive.
I look forward to seeing you at Clico to celebrate alongside us – perhaps, with a glass of Veuve Clicquot!
