Room 13. Unlucky for some and a number traditionally skipped in the hotel business…

Defying superstition, Lanie van Reenen’s daugters, Michelle and Nina claimed this space to open their new graphic design studio in her boutique Guest House, Welgelegen. Their design studio was launched in October with a glitzy party at Welgelegen, attended by Cape Town’s design and hospitality industry trendies. Room 13 Design specializes in graphic design – their expertise involves conceptualizing and executing brochures, corporate identities, websites and packaging. Their fledgling business already boasts an impressive clientele. It’s hospitality as usual in the other 12 luxury bedrooms at Welgelegen, with scores of tourists enjoying another summer season in this well-located popular Cape Town Boutique Guest House.
