“Superb experience”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We spent 2 glorious nights at this very special hotel in the heart of the Robertson Wine Route. The hotel is a beautifully restored house with modern additions. We stayed in one of the manor suites. The room was spacious, luxurious and beautifully appointed. Although it is a bit noisy, it didn't detract from our wonderful stay. The bathroom is spacious with a freestanding bath, walk in shower, 2 basins, all of the highest quality. The food is beautifully prepared, tasty and very innovative. The service all round is outstanding and the staff really make you feel pampered.
I will definitely return if we are in the area again.

We spent 3 nights of pure relaxation in perfect luxury. The ambiance and luxury is accompanied by personel service and friendly and attentive staff. The hospitality of the area is evident in every staff member. Little touches such as a complimentary mini bar and car wash was much appreciated. The restuarant serves great food and the well maintained old property makes for a special stay. Thank you to Charmaine and her team for making our stay a memorable one, we hope to return soon.

Room Tip: The pool side suite is the best

The Robertson hotel is a lot bigger than it looks from the street, and this just seems to be the character of the hotel... everything is just a bit better than you expect. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone spending time in the winelands or in South Africa in general and certainly hope to stay there again.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a stay as part of a week long trip around the winelands and everything was just perfect from the friendly welcoming staff to the room, thanks for the upgrade to one of the Stable Suites, and dinner at the restaurant, complimentary bottle of a fine Chardonnay from one of the local new up and coming local wine estates, the clean car to depart in in the morning...... the list is endless! Thank You.

You might agree with me when saying that guests are often inclined to berather quick to complain when service is poor, however fail to acknowledgewhen it is good.It is for this reason that I wish to advise that my wife and I was most impressed by thepleasant and attentive disposition of your staff, Alwyn and in particular JD when staying at your exquisite establishment over this weekend. It is seldom that one encounters an individual whose passion for his job is so eloquently displayed and reminiscent in his dealings with the guest. JD exhausted all avenues to make our stay extremely pleasant. I subsequently feel honoured topublicly commend JD for outstanding service and faultless professional behaviour.

I have stayed the last 3 years at the Small Hotel and each visit they somehow get better and better. Not only are the rooms magically tended and refreshed with an amazing natural attention to detail. My first visit 2011 I met J.D. de Villiers who went far above the call of duty to make the stay embracing and special as well as many on the staff. It is certainly special when staff can so easily connect with guests and read them so well to help plan a wonderful experience. This visit to The Small Hotel for my husband's birthday, we awoke to the Ruben's blackboard changed to a birthday message and all throughout the day the staff was there with little niceties. When you find an accommodation that is world class with world class people working there and giving their all, it's easy to want to keep returning. It's one of my favorite places on the planet. I hope The Small Hotel will be on my list of places to visit again next year. It's a much needed escape from a year living in China.

Room Tip: If staying on a busy weekend, if you want to sleep late, you might request a room not so close to th...
