  1. We are planning on a trip to Cape Town in November but are still shopping around as to where to go and where to stay. We have already enquired about car hire – so that is sorted and of course flights. We were told to go on South African Airlines. Now we are still researching as to where to stay in terms of accommodation. We will have approximately 14 days for this trip and want to travel around. Of course we will be heading from the city centre through the Garden Route. Funds are not in abundance hence have to consider a budget of approximately £50 a night. Can someone please recommend where to stay?
