We stayed for one night with our 22 month old at the end of our S Africa trip. Our room was huge, with a gas fire, spacious bathroom and patio doors opening onto a shared outside space with a small pool. The bed was very comfortable and a lovely travel cot was provided for our daughter. The communal areas of the hotel were stylishly decorated with contemporary art work and there was ample cosy seating in front of log fires.
Breakfast was good with a varied selection of hot and cold foods. A high chair was available for our daughter. The only downside to our entire stay was a bird that had got in and landed on the cold buffet selection. We alerted the staff but noticed there were actually two birds inside when we left. There was also an inexplicable lack of napkins.
The best thing about our stay was the staff who were all friendly and helpful and went out of their way to ensure our comfort. We are particularly grateful to TASHWIN who epitomised what good customer service should be: we received a very warm welcome on arrival and appreciated the transfer by golf cart (as did our daughter!). He also made a room available for showering the next day before we left for our overnight flight home.
We enjoyed the wine tasting and walking around the estate and felt our holiday ended on a really high note rather than just passing time until leaving for the airport. We definitely would recommend this hotel especially if arriving or departing from Cape Town by air.
