Management were always available to support. Home from home! Rooms were great. Towels need upgrading and bed too short. I am 176 CM. Not tall. Breakfast and service great. Really work hard to make your visit exceptional!

Everything you would want for a chilled out weekend. Rooms are big and comfortable. Bathroom is great. My room a secluded patio area. Staff are brilliant from check in to check out. This really is one of the nicest places I have stayed.

My girlfriend and I spent a night here to celebrate our anniversary and it was everything we hoped for and more. A truly 5 star experience from arrival to departure. Conrad, the manager, offered us some great recommendations for food and wine and really made us feel like royalty. Delightful surprises and delicate, thoughtful touches make for a truly wonderful...

A 4 night stay in a Superior room while visiting the various wine estates. Good accommodation in an excellent location with secure on-site parking. The Hotel is in need of a little work but very enjoyable. Recommended.

This hotel was very well presented and in a great location. Good quality food and all the staff we met were friendly and did everything to enhance our stay. The room we were allocated was very modern and beautifully furnished and large with an open plan design. All the decor and bedroom/bathroom fitments had been recently renewed..

I'm normally a "cool/contemporary" kind of hotel person but this historic hotel may change my mind! The rooms were spacious, more so than most places we stayed in SA, all drinks were included, the staff was very genuine and was there 100% of the time...seemed that their main job is to make us smile! Franklin was the most amazing host...not...
