I stayed here many years ago, and enjoyed it, but this time round was a huge disappointment. I had to stand in the shower to switch on the hot water tap, and stood shivering in the corner waiting for the hot water to come through. After 5 minutes, I gave up, and phoned reception to tell them there was no... More

Dear Mozchic Many thanks for your review. I am sad that we did not deliver a great experience on your second trip to our hotel. Regarding the hot water. We have experienced a harsh winter chill. The distance form the various geysers to the room can be a nuisance. We have again serviced the geysers, pumps and solar panels to... More

We had been to this hotel previosuly and found it to be fair but having gone back again recently, things have improved somewhat. Service was great, the staff were happy and helpful. Our room was nice (I do prefer carpets instead of wooden flooring but that is personal preferrence) and the bathroom excellent. We had a family room and this... More

I have waited a long time before posting this, as I wanted to be entirely fair and felt I needed to wait to give me time to ponder our experience. It was not good. The room we had, supposedly the best in the hotel, had no view and was dark and uninviting. The food was only passable although a buffet... More

The hotel ambience has a combination of old world charm and modern sophistication. The location is perfect within the Devon Valley which produces some of the finest Cape wines. I was booked in a comfortable room with two 3/4 beds and crisp white linen! Each room has a balcony and was lucky my room was facing the Helderberg Mountains! Awesome... More

Staff were so welcoming and accommodating when we arrived after a wet walk. We sat in the bar and had some drinks and toasted sandwiches which were great. Setting is amazing. We didn't stay overnight so can't comment on the rooms.
