Calderwood Hall Guest House (nestled in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg mountains in KwaZuluNatal Midlands) is perfect for that smaller, less formal business break away, strategic session or meeting. It's a place that will encourage those creative juices to flow, a place where you will achieve the business objectives you set for your meeting, but it's also a place that offers a little more. You'll come away feeling that you did, get away to the country, even if it was just for a little while!
Businesses from Pietermaritzburg and the surrounds will enjoy a day conference at Calderwood Hall as it's not too far for the delegates to travel, but it is just far enough away to ensure that complete break, so everyone focuses on those key issues as well as getting to know each other a little better!
For those looking to stay over, you'll find this is a venue that draws everyone together, in the pub or around the pool. Being a little out of the way, definitely has its advantages.
The layout of Calderwood Hall does allow for break-away areas, for less formal discussions and brainstorming sessions. We find that delegates tend to make the place their own - and that's the way we like it.
You'll find our grounds are the perfect setting for any outdoor activities you may want to plan as part of your conference.
Calderwood Hall Guest House is becoming increasingly popular as an accommodation establishment for business groups or teams who are looking for a comfortable place to stay while they host their strategic meetings or complete a project in our area. Our longer staying guests tend to arrive on Monday and then leave on the Friday, returning to us after spending the weekend with their families.
We look to create the environment you need to make your life easier while staying away from home; this may include takeaway breakfasts or lunches or that we place a microwave in a room to warm a late supper. Should there be a group, perhaps its an evening get together around a braai. Whatever your requirements, please call us. If you are going to work in this beautiful part of the country, why not enjoy it!
When having a conference as Calderwood our guests can look forward to tasty food, beautifully presented and a quiet, no fuss, management style. Conference packages are customised to meet your specific requirements and needs.
We offer both conference packages (from R360 per delegate) and with accommodation (from R950 per delegate). Please note that the prices are just an indication of cost.
We have two venues: the Jardine Centre and the Pavilion. The venues are air conditioned for your comfort with break-away areas, for less formal discussions and brainstorming sessions.
Either venue can be set up according to your specific needs. Our suggested layouts are included for your perusal. The Jardine Function Centre is the larger of the two and the stack-back doors lead off the venue onto a large outdoor verandah area overlooking the beautiful view of the mountains and surrounding forests.
The Pavilion is smaller and situated in the front garden amongst the trees overlooking the dam. It has a large deck area, fire pit and a lovely braai facility. The large sliding doors give the room an indoor / outdoor feel. It is also lovely to host guests during Cocktail Hour should the weather be inclement.
