We stayed at the reeort for a night on 14 October. Lovely hotel with nice large and comfortsble room. A great start off point to visit the numerous wineries around the location. Breakfast was great, one of the very few I have come across with a barista preparing freshly brewed coffee by the cup on order. Would definitely stay in... More

We chose the Crowne Plaza because unlike the B & Bs in the area we could book for 1 night over a weekend (instead of 2 nights) which suited us. The room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed a soak in the oversized bath. We were blessed with picture-perfect weather and the walk after dinner beside... More

This is actually our third stay at the Crowne Plaza, previously in a 2 bedroom villa, and this time in a 3 bedroom villa. We stayed here using our Priority Priviledge card so received a discounted rate on booking. It was the school holidays and the hotel was reasonably busy. I note there is construction of a new function centre... More

This hotel definitely ticks the boxes in terms of facilities. For me though it did seem to lack some soul. The grounds could do with a few more trees and landscaping near the rooms, they seemed very sparse and cold to me, as did the rooms themselves. The rooms are clean and comfortable, however the furnishings and décor once again... More

How disappointing was this visit? This hotel is our home away from home. We always enjoy our visits. This time however, while enjoyable, was not up to the usual high standards expected. The staff were professional and helpful. The room was great - clean, comfortable, etc. But ..... the pool area was a disgrace. The previous day (Monday of long... More

Wow! What a place! This was our second staying here, and we can not fault a thing! The staff, facilities, food, bar and golf course are second to none, and we got a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful villa for no reason at all other then the staff at reception thought we'd enjoy it as we just got off the...
