Conference Packages - Almondbridge
Our conference prices range from R335 per person per night. These prices include a bed and 3 meals per person. The rates vary depending on how many people you bring (the bigger your group the lower your bed-rate) and which menu you choose in advance (Budget, Regular or Premium). e.g.
5 - 24 people R180 per person per night sharing or R240 single
25 - 45 people R170 per person per night sharing or R230 single
46 people R135 per person per night sharing (Whole venue package - see below)
+ Meals price
Budget Menu R200 per person per day for 3 meals
Regular Menu R265 per person per day for 3 meals
Premium Menu R340 per person per day for 3 meals
e.g. 30 people on the budget menu will be R170 (bed) + R200 (meals) = R370 total per person per night conference package
Whole Venue Package...
- Additional privacy and even better prices are possible if you book our entire venue for the weekend. We call this the "Whole Venue Package" where we give your group exclusive use of the entire venue for 2 nights / weekend plus 6 meals at a bulk rate of R30,820 (on a budget meal package).
- 46 people stay the entire weekend sharing two persons per en-suite room including all meals for R30,820 - which works out at just R335 per person per night. (R135 ppp night room rate and R200pp per day meals on Budget menu option) Your church takes the entire retreat over and no other guests are allowed on site. The great advantages with this package are privacy, exclusivity and savings.
- + option of extra night on Thursday or Sunday? Some groups need an extra night i.e. the Thursday night or the Sunday night. In this event we offer the 3rd night at R250 per person (which includes 3 more meals). i.e....if you have 46 people, the total is R42,320 (46 people x R920 per person for 3 days / 9 meals OR just R306 per person per day including meals.)
Summary - Whole Venue Package - from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch:
- Budget menu = R30,820 (R135 bed + R200 meals = R335 pp x 2 nights = R670 each x 46 people.)
- Regular menu = R36,800 (R135 bed + R265 meals = R400 pp x 2 nights = R800 each x 46 people.)
- Premium menu = R43,700 (R135 + R340 meals = R475 pp x 2 nights = R950 each for 46 people.)

- 20% - 45 days from the date of the quotation. A further NON REFUNDABLE deposit of 20% is payable within 45 days from quotation date.
- 20% - 30 days before arrival. A further NON REFUNDABLE deposit of 20 % (i.e. 50% in total prior to arrival) is due 30 days before arrival.) Final guest numbers must be confirmed at this point. Variations in numbers after this date will be regarded as no-shows and the client will be responsible for their payment at check-in time.
- Final 50% payment due at check-in, on arrival.
- If you book a "Whole Venue Package" and subsequently reduce numbers below 46, you do not get a discount or reduction from the total package price. Rather spread out and enjoy the privacy of more single rooms :-) We will keep to our side of the agreement and not book out vacant rooms to third parties during your stay.
- See "Menus" under the "Conferencing" tab to see the three different menus.
- All rooms are "en-suite" but in most rooms that means en suite to a shower, not a bath.
- Only four of our rooms have double beds. If you require a double bed, please specify in advance.
- Sharing is limited to 2 persons per room.
- Prices above include free coffee after breakfast and dinner but not during the conference itself. Groups are encouraged to bring their own coffee / tea / biscuits which can be served in the conference lounge during conferences. We supply water urns and wash up after you. This allows significant savings for the conference organizers.
- On the conference packages the rooms are not serviced. This enables rates substantially below the norm. Should you require servicing of the rooms during a conference we can provide such service for an additional cost. This option must be arranged at least one week before the conference begins.
- Unless you have booked a Whole Venue Package, sometimes two groups will share the guest house which then has a total sleeping capacity limited to 46 persons.... Note that we have three different conference rooms in the venue, a small one and two large rooms. Ensure in advance you know which conference room your group has been allocated and what equipment you will require. See "Conference" tab for equipment available.
- If you take the "Whole Venue Package" you automatically have use of 2 conference halls, one of which must be the "Upper Room"
- The small conference room "Upper Room" has an effective seated capacity of 20 persons, the medium conference venue has an effective seated capacity of 70 persons while the large conference venue has a capacity of 200 persons.
- Note that the large conference venue is about 250 meters away from the main building.
- The conference facilities and equipment are free for conferences who are sleeping overnight following the conference. Day conferences not sleeping overnight will pay R600 for use of the small conference room R2000 for use of the medium conference room and R3000 for use of the large conference room.
- "No-shows" on the day as well as cancellations less than two weeks before arrival will be charged at R150 per person per night.
- Bookings made up to 1 year in advance, and where a deposit has been paid, will keep the price quoted. Bookings made more than 1 year in advance are subject to change.
