Hartford has had more than its share of publicity in the past six weeks. American Express Platinum Fine Dining Award; Top Ten S.A. Restaurant; Top Three Lady Chefs etc. And now they’ve made Top Billing’s six finalists for top hotel in South Africa, with the announcement of Numero Uno due in January 2008.

Steve and DianneSteve and DianneSteve & Dianne Smith have not been here long, and whilst much of this accolade has to do with a reputation which has been built over time, their management style is palpably evident in a new lifting of the bar. Well done to them, and to the entire Hartford staff.

From one Champion team to another.
