“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

For top class service and relaxation, Villa Amore is most certainly the place you would want to be. The friendly manner and helpfulness of Barry, Cecilia, Anel and Andre one could not have asked for a more delightful get away. Effort beyond and more! The food was out of this world and my husband and I both will recommend the breakfast and dinner, delicious. Accommodation is spectacular, my husband even slept four times. Thank You for making our get away so wonderful.

It is good to hear that someone who goes to a lot of trouble to find a place where she can spoil her husband and get him to relax, is actually happy with what she found at Villa Amor. The rural and relaxed atmosphere is suited to sleeping in, yet you are very close to first class shopping and entertainment.

I am so glad you enjoyed the wine and the extensive list of wines. We have for a very long time being collecting wine, mostly bought at the estate when we are in Cape Town. In this way a bit of the spectacular Cape Winelands atmosphere comes to life when the wine is served, and it is even better if guests appreciate it.

Thank you for appreciating the gardens. Now that spring has sprung! and hundreds of seedlings are straining to impress guests staying here, we know that Joshua will smile when given the feedback about the gardens, HIS gardens!

PS. 12 different types of tomatoes are growing nicely and will soon be served at breakfast.

Our hosts Barry and Cecelia (not fogetting their three adorable dogs) made us feel right at home when we arrived. The guest house is well laid out with tasteful decor in every room and not forgetting the beautiful garden that completes this lovely home away from home. The personal service we received from Barry at breakfast was excellent and Cecelia was most helpful at all times. Definitely a delightful getaway for anyone.

Thank you for your review, it is important for us to know what guests appreciate. The dogs are quite used to it to mix with guests that like dogs and to be put in "their" private space when necessary.

I had a wonderful experience coming on my own to this magnificent B&B.
The garden was lovely my room was beautiful and luxurious.
The food was good and made with so much love. And the owners really made me feel welcome and at home. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.

Thank you for the review. It helps to know what is important and making someone feel at home is a priority for us. Striking a balance between 'pampering' and letting guests enjoy their privacy is delicate.

What an enormous and beautiful home. Wonderful food (cooked by the owners themselves). The owners can't do enough for you and are the loveliest people on earth. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return in a flash.
