There are two recommended accommodation options within driving distance from the conference venue. The University will arrange transport between the two listed hotels and the meeting venue in Vanderbijlpark. Participants staying at alternate venues, will need to arrange their own in-city transport.

  1. Bon Hotel Riviera on Vaal, Vereening. The University has negotiated a conference rate of R1510.00 (about $127) per day for a single room with breakfast included. When making bookings for the conference rate you must reference NWU: Luzzelle van Rensburg. You will need to be a representative from an OERu partner institution to qualify for the conference rate.
  2. Emerald Resort and Casino on Frikkie Meyer Boulevard, Vanderbijlpark. The resort has a range of accommodation options. Please consult the hotel website for rates.

Budget accommodation option

A small number of budget rooms can be booked at the Quest Conference centre which is within walking distance from the meeting venue. Please note that Dinner must be pre-arranged at the conference centre. A small number of chain restaurants (for example, Spur steakhouse, Ocean Basket, Panarottis Pizza) are located approximately 3kms from the conference venue. Please note that there is no public transport system with only a restricted number of metered taxi providers.
