At Trail’s End you are guaranteed to find more than you expected, not only are we a great conference venue, with our Cecil Nurse Conference Centre running entirely on solar to keep you powered even when Eskom can’t, we are also an exciting venue for weddings, bachelor/ette does and parties!

Conveniently located within an hour’s drive of Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Hermanus we are a great meeting point where traffic is never an issue and parking is guaranteed.

Not only is our Cecil Nurse Conference Centre, holding up to 80 people, run fully on solar to avoid mid-presentation interruptions from Eskom, but we offer in-house team building and accommodation for all your delegates on site.
