Executive chef Keegan Maistry is ready to prepare a bespoke menu for your party.

“While we welcome and celebrate mothers all year round, we’ve come up with a list of ten reasons to rely on us to give your precious mother in your life something a bit different. Aimed at all budgets and timeframes, there is something special waiting for you at City Lodge Hotel Group,” says Lindiwe Sangweni-Siddo, chief operating officer.

She adds, “I am reminded of one of my favourite poets, Khalil Gibran, who writes: ‘The most beautiful word on the lips of mankind is the word “Mother”. And the most beautiful call is the call of “My Mother”. It is a word full of hope and love, a sweet and kind word coming from the depths of the heart. The mother is everything – she is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness.’”
