On arrival at this hotel, having passed fabulous hotels on Wine Estates we were pretty underwhelmed. This changed however when we were taken to our room, which was stunning! Beautiful bedroom (shame there was no fridge) with a big comfy bed and the most amazing big bathroom, complete with freestanding bath! The view from our terrace was shaded by vines and overlooking a valley of flowers and vineyards. Perfect.
We used the pool upon our arrival. This could have been cleaner (although it was a windy day), and there were discarded cans and glasses around the pool (from earlier guests I imagine). This was disappointing. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and it was amazing! Don't miss! Excellent service, and some of the best food of our stay in South Africa. Don't miss the gorgonzola ice-cream!
Breakfast was in the sunkissed courtyard and was delicious and plentiful. Scones with cream & jam too! Staff were friendly. We were even left biscotti at the turn-down service which we saved for later in our car journey and were hungry!
I think this a great value hotel in an expensive area. It probably wouldn't be our first choice if money were no object, but for what we paid it felt like luxury.
