We spent 3 nights here which was the highlight of our holiday. The hotel is in a fantastic location with amazing views across the bay. It is beautifully maintained and the staff are professional and helpful. Our room had a sea view and was spacious with lovely furnishings. The bathroom was modern and really nicely fitted out.
We ate in the restaurant 3 times and it simply superb which surprised us, as hotel restaurants are so often disappointing. We also ate in several restaurants in Franscchoek which we were told was the gourmet capital of South Africa but none of them came close to this restaurant.
We stayed in the wing across the road and my only criticism is that the wifi signal is poor.
