The basics are in place, hotel is clean, great views. Service is mediocre. If you haven't got a car don't stay here. Noise from neighbors and outside. Coffee in rooms is plastic. Check in and check out slow - no urgency. As usual too many forms to complete.

A tranquil hotel, which seems to cater equally for private or business community. Good views over the Stellenbosch mountains and winelands. Unfortunately I could not bisit the Wingerd restaurant, but the standard buffet is accomplished, with good quality dishes. The buffet range is not extensive, but still very tasty, especially the yellow chicken curry. Breakfast is also of a high... More
