We were lucky enough to find this boutique hotel and we really couldn't have asked for more. So much so, that we’re compelled to write a first ever review. It was a wonderful mixture of relaxation, great food, wine, beautiful surroundings- without a doubt, truly outstanding.
The hotel is located in a quiet, small, elegant coastal village..... in which you can walk at any time night and day without any concern...with quaint cafes and restaurants, serving very good food. The hotel itself has been beautifully renovated with a passion for the finer details, full of beautiful art.... not to mention the wine celler in which even the most expert and passionate wine drinker could find challenging and full of rare wines. We had the most fantastic room, with a stunning view of the Indian ocean- it seems incredible to say that we were falling asleep cuddled by the sound of the waves.
We were there for 10 glorious days and the hotel organised for us some beautiful visits around. It's a great location to access loads of sights- the vineyards, Cape Town, the point, great walks along the coastline- there’s a huge amount to do, when you can pull yourself away from the comfort of Rodwell.
In fact what you can experience in Rodwell house is the service and attention of luxurious pampering which you can only imagine in real life! The staff really couldn’t have done more for us- including serving the original Italian bruschetta for my fussy (!) Italian husband on demand by the pool!! If you get a chance, go- we are desperately eager to return.
