The accommodation is excellent, the service great and it has a wonderful location. I neede to leave before the normal breakfast start so a fabulous packed take-away breakfast pack was arranged. This was true service beyond expectations.

A serene, centrally located, venue with views of the Atlantic and a vibe that is reminiscent of the south of France. Short walks to coffee shops and wonderful company/hospitality. Will be a return trip.

Wonderful reception and homely setting in an unbeatable location. Even if you live in Cape Town, it's a great relaxing break. Breakfast was really good and a pre-arranged bottle of bubbly to celebrate our anniversary was no problem.
