Lovely surroundings, beautiful room and excellent food and wine. The staff led by Angelo were friendly and helpful. The setting is terrific and it is a great place to relax. The Doolhof reds are well worth a taste

We have nothing but good things to say about our stay. The atmosphere was elegant, warm and welcoming. The food was so good and plentiful that I need to get new clothes.....:) Our room was perfection all the time. We never entered our room or any room for that matter that was not in order. The grounds offer endless wandering... More

5 star treatment especially spar and food. Good wine tasting. Comfortable and quiet. Hidden away in valley with great trails. friendly helpful staff. Modern and old mixed décor. Place to rest and relax and exercise in nature. Only problem is poor cell phone reception.

We chose Grand Dedale to celebrate a 70th birthday and were absolutely delighted with the whole experience. Angelo and all the staff made us most welcome and were attentive but unobtrusive. General ambiance, food and wine were superb. We would thoroughly recommend this excellent property if you want to be pampered.

This hotel, in the middle of a very tranquil valley, is just charming. Comfortable elegance. Peaceful, serene and in a beautiful environment. We chose to go there because hiking was advertised and the managers were very helpful in providing guidance. The food was generally very good, but there were the odd misses. Overall, I very highly recommend the place.

The heading really surprised me and in fact I had to Google the word "pastoral" noun "a work of literature portraying an idealized version of country life" a perfect yet original description of our property and surrounding. I hope that on your next... More

We are just leaving Grand Dedale after a completely relaxing 6 nights. The location, hospitality and food were absolutely perfect and exactly what we needed to relax Angelo and Tina have created an oasis of calm in a beautifully and sympathetically restored house on the Doolhof wine estate.
