This is not value for money. Rooms were clean and aicondisioner was working well. Staff at reception and bar was friendly and helpful but the food was poor and the service in the dining room was poor and very unprofessional.

The hotel is located outside of the town of Stellenbosch, in the middle of vineyards and working farms. It offers a very nice view and it has a tranquil setting above the road. The staff is extremely professional and friendly, everyone has a smile and is ready to assist with any query. We were upgraded to a new type of... More

We were a group of 6 adults enjoying an excellent Sunday buffet. The food was typical traditional Cape fare....and excellently prepared. Huge selection of delectable starters and the pickled fish was one of the favourites, as well as the roasted butternut. Main course was superb and for some one who is not even keen on sweets afterwards.....well, enough to say... More

Dear JoMdP As a senior contributor we do appreciate the time taken to give us feedback. Certainly the maintenance of your room was not acceptable and I have addressed with my team as the room should never have been made available for our guests. During the winter months we spend a lot of time doing maintenance to ensure our rooms... More
