A Fabulous Function Venue in Centurion
Take a look at Centurion and its recent rapid growth that incorporates numerous hotels, function, conference and retail centres, industries, residential suburbs and office parks. Modern Centurion even boasts one of the Gautrain rapid rail system’s stations, which serves passengers travelling to and from Pretoria, O.R. Tambo International Airport, Rosebank and Sandton in Johannesburg.
You’ll find it almost impossible to believe that this very same area, once known as Lyttelton, was a mere collection of several hundred erven, not quite 120 years ago. The initial demarcated erven were situated on farm land, with the prospect of forming a township shortly after the end of the Anglo-Boer War.
Erven – Township – City Council
Lyttelton Township’s demarcation took place in 1904 and was only officially extended in 1942, when the extended portion was named Lyttelton Manor Extension 1. Lyttelton gained City Council ranking twenty years post extension, in 1962.
In 1967, one year after the then South African Prime Minister, Dr Verwoerd, was assassinated, greater Lyttelton’s name changed to Verwoerdburg, in his honour, Lyttelton itself becoming a suburb of Verwoerdburg.
Suburban areas included Clubview – the location of our boutique hotel and its prestigious function and conference venues. Many people are unaware that Clubview was once a farm which lent its name to the quiet, leafy suburb that developed around it.
Because of its political and social unacceptability amongst previously disenfranchised South Africans, Verwoerdburg’s name was changed to Centurion in 1995, after the country’s first democratic elections, and so the name has remained.
Centurion’s popularity, prosperity and size continue to grow. This lovely area is situated close to Pretoria’s businesses, embassies, government departments and institutions of higher learning, but sufficiently distant from the daily gridlocked traffic.
The area is also easily accessible from Johannesburg, other Gauteng towns and airports. Centurion is ideally situated for functions, events, meetings, conferences and weddings. Convenient access by road, public transport and from airports is a major benefit to all conference delegates or travelling guests.
Centurion’s Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel
The original manor house, which was eventually to become Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel’s flagship main building, dates back to 1920, when one Colonel Frank Dyason had it built as his residence on the farm known as Clubview.
The homestead and the estate’s additional buildings that include function and conference venues, now occupy 2,5 hectares of magnificent landscaped gardens, in keeping with Cape Dutch tradition and this iconic style of architecture, which has been lovingly retained and replicated at Kleinkaap.
