We booked a garden deluxe room which was quite large, but had the strangest bathroom configuration I have ever seen. The tub sits in a side niche in the bedroom exposed to all, the sink and shower are also in the bedroom, no bathroom walls or door for privacy, just a dressing screen. Thank goodness the toilet was in it's own compartment. For two women sharing a room, this layout was quite uncomfortable and just plain weird. We booked dinner at WedgeView for the one night we were there and must say the food was outstanding (excellent chef) although a bit pricy for what we experienced at the finer restaurants in Franschhoek, 250 R per person not including any wine or cocktails and their menu is set, no choices. We had an early morning flight and had notified them months in advance that we would be leaving prior to their scheduled breakfast. They responded that It is definitely possible to have an early breakfast in the morning. They asked if a ham sandwich would be fine and I said yes. What I didn't expect was a plastic bag left on our dresser the night before with two soggy pieces of bread, a slice of thin ham and cheese wrapped in foil along with a cup of yogurt, an apple and instant coffee and tea we could make ourselves. Perhaps their breakfasts are wonderful but ours was disgusting! One bite out of the sandwich in the morning and we decided even airport food had to be better than this! Other than the dinner,this property was the biggest disappointment of our trip
