Agree with the other answers. We were there in January and it actually rained a fair bit. There are some low use advisories such as asking guests to take shorter showers and the water pressure is fairly low, but they don't seem as concerned there as they do in Cape Town itself. I think you will be fine. Its a nice hotel

Dear Vincent D you can arrange private wine tours whereby the drivers/guide will collect you from the hotel and take you to the estates you wish to visit. Most visitors make use of the Wine Tram tours. The ticket office is a short walk from the hotel and offer 7 different routes packaged to your needs. I trust the above has been helpful. We look forward to welcoming you. Kind regards Jennifer

"If you are not an early bird probably book the rooms with inside view (pool), not the ones facing the main street."
"Ground floor room, ideal for my wife who uses a wheelchair "
"Despite my room overlooking the pool - that part of the hotel was more than quiet which was great."
"Ask for a second story room if possible "
"Ask for a king bed if you'd like the extra space. Also good to be upstairs as then you don't have anyone above you. "
US$124 - US$196 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
