          For the Welgelegen staff. I will be traveling with some friends to Cape Town in April. We are looking for 3 to 4 rooms for the nights of 20 April to 22/23 April. One would be a single king for the nights on 20 and 21 April. The second would be for a couple sharing a king for the same nights. The third would be for a family of 4, traveling with a 3 year old and a 6 month old. It would be for the same two nights plus plus the night of 22 April - for a total of three nights. They would be interested in the possibility of an interlocking/connecting room. That would, I presume, mean a possible 4th room. Can you please advise me on options and availability as respects the family of four? Thanks! Jim
