I had no idea what to expect coming here as there is such a polarised mix of reviews on TripAdvisor. I was pleased though that the overall quality of my stay here was enjoyable.
*Shower was a bit fiddly to get the right balance of jot and cold
*Rooms are not very isolated from noise (through the door and also could hear TV of neighbouring room through wall)
*I can understand why other reviewers commented on this place not being 5 stars and that the websites language allan be a bit misleading to the level of brilliance... But like I've said, overall this is not a bad place.
*Very pleasant hostess
*Rooms and rest of guesthouse is very nicely presented/decorated
*Bed and bedding quite comfortable
*Breakfast is nothing lavish, but made for a very filling and enjoyable start to the day. Yogurt, cereal, toast with preserves and a hot drink coffee/tea/chocolate.
*Nice to be able to enjoy the private balcony and common lounge room which has a fire place, couches, music and chess.
*Convenient locations to great wineries, chocolate and cheese.
*Great light blocking curtains to help with a good sleep in.
*Late standard checkout time of 11 am.
*Brilliant DVD collection.
*Air conditioner is really strong.
