this is a nice hotel and we got a great deal on expedia but it is out of the way in stellenbosch and so you need a car or driver. Also the wine and other activities are really poor - skip them entirely. They charged us US $10 per person each way for a literally 8 minute ride into town and wanted to charge us $300 for a half day tour of the winelands. We found a wonderful guide for $200 who gave us a 6 hour tour. They also talked us out of spending time in Stellenbosch as they said there was nothing to do - not so - it had wonderful shopping and resturants and so we wasted our time there. They also were very unaccomadating in regards to cashing traveler's checks and the "star attraction restaurant" Moyo was a buffet with a frat party atmosphere - if you were drunk or with a large group it likely was great but otherwise it was a zoo - awful!
