I had never heard of this venue before and due to a Groupon offer, my wife and friends decided to give it a go. On arrival we were welcomed by Carole, the manager and taken to our cottage and everything was explained to us. The wooden chalets are comfortable with modern neutral colours and open roof rafters. The bathroom was... More

What a beautiful and pleasant stay 5 Mountains Lodge & Spa was. Right from check in to check out, there was not one thing to complain about. I stayed in a garden cottage which was gorgeous and all my needs were catered for. Stunning lodge, great service and perfect location. Highly recommended!

Food,is very good home style cooking. Staff both at the spa, where treatments are first class, and in general are attentive. With only five cottages, guests are ensured a relaxing and tranquil...

Had an overnight booked after eventually getting someone on the phone, messages not returned, as was to be in Wellington for a wedding. Venue is beautiful, checkin was brilliant, room comfy with a couple of nice touches, but there was no water. Had to dash down to reception to determine why, no in room phones and no replies to external... More

From the moment you get there you feel welcome..be it the friendly staff or the cosy fireplace in the lounge area. When we got to our cottage it was already heated for us (visited in the rainy season). Rooms are neat and modern. Spa treatment was 10 out of 10. Service is great and food yummy. Only thing..wish the spa... More

However, the natural beauty of the area, the quality of its vineyards and the standard of many of the local restaurants won't maske yopu feel you have... More

We booked two nights at the lodge (Thursday and Friday). We booked in late afternoon and was mildly received by reception and shown to our room by (I think) a therapist. The room was okay but did not live up to its 4 star grading. Here and there were signs of wearing. The biggest gripe was that the sheets were... More

I had booked through a special deal and sadly won't be back in a hurry. Our dates somehow got mixed up and two days before I phoned just to confirm, was told we should have been here a week previously. Fortunately I had email confirmation and to their credit, they did allow us to choose an alternative night. Treatments were... More
