Hotel of the week: Derwent House

If you’re kicking yourself for not organising a bank holiday hideaway, seek solace in planning a future escape (three days of picnics and park life are looking unlikely – as usual – with storm clouds on the horizon). We’d like to point you in the direction of the delightful Derwent House, in colourful Cape Town. Not only will a stay here be wallet-friendly, with the hotel’s great-value rates (and member offer – see below), it will also be jetlag-free, thanks to the one-hour time difference – if you hail from Brit shores that is.
