Date Night @ Crowne Plaza

A Stay at Tsogo Sun's - Crowne Plaza in Rosebank.
(Let's just make it a Date Night.)

Some of the finest upmarket rooms & luxury suites in Rosebank - Joburg. The hotel exudes a contemporary modern feel from the moment you walk in the doors. (One of my favourite things is the smell. The whole hotel has a signature fragrance that follows you wherever you go.)

The Crowne Plaza has a 'Date Night' package available at the moment, that I think is some serious value for money for the stay in this 4 star establishment.

Included is Dinner, Bed & Breakfast for 2... 

A romantic turn-down in your room.
Enjoy a 3 course Dinner at CUT, prepared by Nico Brandt.
Be surprised with a complimentary bottle of wine.
Start your morning with breakfast at Fresh Restaurant

So naturally when I was there, I had to venture around to see what's on offer at the hotel. 

Outdoor Pool.
Fitness Centre.
Amani African Spa.

Then they have all the other things that make your stay so much more comfortable.
WiFi. Housekeeping & Laundry Services. Childcare Services. So you really have everything right there that you need.

The 3 Course Dinner at CUT. 
A set menu with a wide variety of options to choose from will leave you drooling.

I opted for the Creamy Mussels starter. Paired this with the Protea Chardonnay & it was a winner.

The Black Mushrooms with Cheese (And Extra Cheese) is full of flavours & if you are a mushroom lover, then this one is for you. 

On to the main meals... The Ostrich Fillet was my first choice. Presented beautifully & with simple elements I was expecting it to be a great dish. Unfortunately, the fillet was more sinew than anything, so I asked to send it back. Our waiter was amazing & then brought out the menu & insisted that they replace my meal with something else. So I then asked for the Calamari, which was deep-fried to perfection & crispy on the outside & tender on the inside. The chicken & seafood curry pot is one big meal that will definitely be leaving you wanting more. Creamy & full of spice.

Before heading up to bed, it was time to head to the new Circle Bar for a final glass of wine. It is a great place to chill & have a few drinks with friends & enjoy the music with some good wine.

All in all, I had a great stay at the Tsogo Sun - Crowne Plaza in Rosebank. It is nice & close to Rosebank Mall & the Gautrain Station if you need to get out, so there are no excuses to venture into Joburg to go sight seeing too.
