On our way down to CPT we had booked this guest house to break the journey. It was easy to find and beautifully located. The views of the train bridge and surrounding vineyards are nice. It was sad to see some vineyards had to die off some of their patches due to water shortage. We had a relaxing time on our veranda, enjoying the view and some wine. Our room was very good. Spacious and a little kitchenette. We had a good nights sleep. There is a very friendly dog on the premises that may come round for a little chat. Our hostess and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed the dinner served, and the wine from the own was excellent, too. Recommended.

Located in open countryside overlooking the Oliphants River valley and surrounded by working vineyards. This is a delightful property with onsite parking. We had a great welcome on arrival, the reception staff being very helpful. As we were travelling, they even contacted us as to if we wanted dinner that evening! This we found later was beautifully prepared and served al fresco on the reception patio.The view from our small but adequate room across the garden and swimming pool was wonderful. We stayed here for two nights and a good breakfast each morning set us up for exploring the local area. We would certainly stay here again should the occasion arise.

Wow, what can I say. The reception was friendly and informative. We stayed in chalet number 4. It is spacious and very comfortable with aircon and had a great view where the sunrise greeted you through the double french doors. The grounds are well maintained. The food was good. A great place to relax.

Lovely setting but a little disappointing. Paint peeling off the walls, not enough bath towels, not much service at all, average breakfast, terrible coffee, cats inside the dining room, stuffy indoor dining area, stained stinky cushions on only two loungers by the pool...didn’t see the hostess except for when she showed us our room. Room for improvement as the old house and beautiful surroundings have great potential
