We bought a Groupon deal which was good value when you consider the inclusions we took advantage of over the three nights: beer tasting, two bottles of wine and the wine school which was very well done and most informative. I can't fault the staff, the location, the cleanliness or the restaurant but the accommodation was tired. We stayed in...

Good but not great. Rooms are cabin-style with thin walls and two single beds pushed together - 1 squished than the other. Room was clean and well kept Hosts are friendly by mainstream breweries, not for beer connoisseurs. Food at dinner was plentiful and good ploughmans fare. Breakfast - not so much....although gluten free bread was amazing! Nice running track...

It seems your travel agent sold your group a 3 night “5 star Luxury Hunter Escape”. They did negotiate a value deal with us, also directly with the cheese people & segway operators. Nowhere in OUR marketing, do we say we are a ‘5 star luxury resort’. We say are a 35 room family owned and operated country inn or...

I visited a few places over the weekend and by far this had a really good feel to it, especially if you are in a group. Nothing was a problem, I sampled beer & wine and learnt a lot about wine itself and I even got a lesson in making candy. I viewed the rooms and they were clean and...

I was visiting today looking at potential venues for my group next year. Not only do I choose to eat a Paleo diet, I order this to see what venues can produce with very strict dietary requirements. It's imperative the place I choose can think outside the box. As food is a massive part of our existence. It's the hub...

Stayed here for a weekend away with a family of four. The room need some repairs but was very comfortable. the location is central to most vineyards and restaurants. The price is reasonable for what you get.

stayed here for two nights whilst on holiday from the UK. The rooms were clean but very tired and the vineyard view?? Not quite Alsace. WiFi is only available for one device. But we were given an extra code on request. Signal dodgy but that is not the fault of the hotel. Had a free vineyard tour, talk and tasting...

We had a vineyard view room and it was very basic yet disappointing. The furniture was old and outdated. The tv in the room was way too small for the size of the room and the volume was set to a certain level so you could barely hear a thing. The bathroom floor was filthy when we arrived and the...

The room was average and the shower over the bath was restrictive and open to much wetting of the floor. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We found the restaurant excellent, except for the inadequate paper serviettes. Larger, more absorbent ones would be welcome.
