this review is very late. My husband and I stayed here on our mini honeymoon break just before Christmas Dec 2012. I always meant to write but forgot. My husband and I loved this place, it was different, and the host was very welcoming and accommodating. I've read people complain about no air con, and flies etc, and admit that staying there in the winter would be more fabulous. However, My husband and I brough our dog, and we had a great time. Up early for a walk each morning. The train carriages are unique, and fun experience to stay in. There is a bicycle place next door which we hired bikes from and cycled around all the wineries each day. We loved it and would definitely stay again. For anyone reading the grumbles, I would just say this. It is not a hotel in the conventional way, and it is in the country, we enjoyed the different experience, but it wouldn't be for everyone.
