Thank you Christine and John for looking after us so royally from the moment we arrived until the time came to leave. Which, by the way, we were extremely sad to do.. The gardens, the perfume from the roses, the pool, everything about Greenhill is superb, the pre dinner canapés and drinks by the fire, the wine, the excellent food.... More

A truly extraordinary property, superb hosts and total peace and quiet are the hallmarks of Greenhill Lodge. Go there to truly get away from it all. And make a point of dining there at least once - the food is excellent and the setting is perfect.

A memorable three days in winter. This beautifully restored property is a delight and our hosts, Christine and John (not forgetting Nessie the "Boss"), could not have been more welcoming or hospitable. To have canapés and drinks before a lovely fire, as a lead up to an excellent dinner prepared and served by our hosts, meant we finished each day... More

We had the pleasure of a two night stay at the historic Greenhill Lodge in early February 2014. It was magnificent! John and Christine are wonderful hosts. The lodge is in the countryside very close to the wineries that we toured during the day. Highlights for us included evening cocktails fireside, sumptuous breakfast, sweet treats in our room, sleeping on... More

We stayed for only one night at Greenhill Lodge but wish we had planned more time with John and Christine. Just driving up to the Lodge is quite an experience - hidden from view until you turn up the drive, yet it dominates the surrounding countryside. We were told about it's history and given a tour of the features from... More
