Beautiful historic hotel, with good food

I visited this historic hotel's restaurant as part of restaurant week in October 2014. The hotel looked beautiful, from the outside anyway, with an open green garden, surrounded by trees and as I'm seated at my table outside I can hear birds singing. Lovely! Excellent service, available and fast... read more

Dined here for Restaurant Week. We choose a restaurant each year, but this year to me was very disappointing. There is Special menu for all restaurants plus thise with a star which means fancy restaurant so you pay R50 extra per star which Ashtons was. Well, if you call a salad starter with mixed lettuce tomatoes pieces of white and... More

Unfortunately this beautiful hotel falls horribly short when it comes to service. Granted, we did not stay there, but we did attend a Mother's Day lunch there and were shocked that this hotel is listed as being a five star establishment. It took approximately 45 minutes for us all to receive our drinks as they were brought out individually. The... More

What a Disgrace! They served spoilt fish twice! We were the only table in the whole place! The main course took one hour to get to us! There was no manager on duty! The chef was blatantly uninterested and mentioned that he was leaving due to the politics of the hotel After asking for the bill we realised that the... More

We booked for a group of 9 for dinner. The food was overcooked and inedible. The meals were obviously kept warm in an oven as the meat and mashed potato was hard and dry. We could tap our cutlery on the hard mashed potato which had a brown, toasted crust on it from being kept warm. Service was slow and... More

We booked to have dinner at Greenways a week in advance and specified that there would be 3 vegaterians at the table. We arrived to a beautiful setting; lovely building and beautiful garden. The service was good, but the food ended up being a total disappointment. Firstly, on the website menu there were a few vegaterian options, yet on the... More

I've been a bit lazy about posting in last few years. Today's meal was so poor I feel the need to warn people of what to expect. Menu offered 2 vegetarian courses for R135 with a small carafe of wine. Ditto for meat at R175. Monday to Friday. We ordered. Big discussion ensues on whether we could get this offer.... More
