We stayed for two nights on our honeymoon. I can only say this is possibly one of the best hotels I have stayed at anywhere in the world!!
The hotel is set just outside the town on a working vineyard and offers amazing breath taking, words can not describe views of the valley and mountains.
The rooms are fantastic luxurious and amazing attention to detail with lovely molton brown cosmetics. The views from the bedrooms are also amazing.
The staff are more than fantastic they are all world class; friendly helpful and welcoming and so happy! The manager Sean is present and was very helpful in organising a schedule for us in the winelands and also very welcoming.
I can only describe this hotel as a home away from home.
Many hotels i have stayed at try and become a home away from home, but this is the only hotel in my view which actually achieves it!!
Finally make sure you eat at the mange tout restaurant we had a 3 course a la carte meal which turned into a 5 course meal and was absolutely fantastic. It is one of the best meals we had in south Africa. Also make sure you take time to hike around the vineyard we did a great hike up to the hill next to the hotel which was lovely and also visit the wine cellar at tasting at the country kitchen.
To summarise then you can't go wrong with this hotel, fantastic setting views, amazing amazing staff, luxurious rooms and an amazing restaurant. We are already working out when we can visit again and we only left a few days ago!!
