“Relaxed place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Nothing bad to say about this place, only the casual atmosphere compared to other estates. Gorgeous view though.

“Beautiful place for a sundown drink!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Didn't stay here but went twice for lovely end-of day drinks. You don't see the sun setting but you see the colours on the mountains, the clouds forming over the mountains and the amazing gardens. There is the most peaceful herb garden and lovely terrace. it's very quiet and a perfect little getaway.
Wine and MCC prices are cheap so do head to this little secret!

“went at 6pm every night for Gin & Tonics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

A great place to see the sun set. There is an inside and just outside (it is under cover) bar area. The staff are most welcoming even though we only have had drinks with them on two seperate holidays. It is a beautiful place.

As we were staying at the hotel we just had to visit the winery , good wine, quite a rustic cave with great views and a good cafe.
