This was our second time staying at Kleinfontein, and we were welcomed like old friends. The location is spectacular, seeing the mountains lit by the setting sun is just magical. Our suite on the ground floor has everything you could possibly need. So much is included in the price, a very well stocked fridge, plus wines and spirits, laundry and a picnic lunch if you require it. Hot water bottles are put in the huge bed every night, very comforting. Sitting outside for the wonderful breakfast (home made yoghurt) watching beautiful birds feeding is an experience in itself. From Kleinfontein you can easily get to Cape Town, Hermanus or the many wineries close by (Fairview is just a short drive away). Cannot recommend it highly enough. Frances and Ralph G, Scotland.
