After driving in circles to find the hotel and after asking three different people I eventually found the hotel by mistake. Don't know if there is any directional signage for this hotel but if there is, I certainly did not see it. Hotel is situated in an office park so not easy to find.

Booked a deluxe twin room very late online on the day of arrival but within few minutes we were allocated a room. Check-in was good. The guy who worked a night shift who was asked to prepare our room was not cooperative because we had to wait for him and was reluctant to prepare our room. We waited a long... More

Visited this hotel recently for a short weekend stay with my husband. We were given a deluxe room that was spotless, we had a small lounge area which was great to relax away from the bedroom. The bathroom had all the toiletries we required. The location is superb as all of the popular wineries are only a short few minutes... More

This hotel is located in a beautiful part of the country - mountains as far as the eye can see and rolling, lush vineyards. The rooms are tastefully decorated and incredibly clean but what sets this hotel apart is the hotel staff. They GET IT. They understand me and the stresses I face when I am on my business trips....

Enjoy my stay at the hotel. Overlooking the mountains in a peaceful environment is more that could ask for. The room was clean, food was great and the service great. Please spoil yourself and go for supper at "Die Wingerd" on the premises of the hotel. You will not be disappointed. Will go back again!!
