Enjoyed a great value for money stay at this very comfortable accommodation.
The Bovlei Valley in Wellington is an affordable alternative to the more famous Cape Wine Regions such as Stellenbosch and Fransschoek. However, the natural beauty of the area, the quality of its vineyards and the standard of many of the local restaurants won't maske yopu feel you have missed out!
The staff were friendly and attentive. My wife enjoyed an outstanding massage at the spa and breakfasts were more than adequate. The piste-de-resistance however was the MOST comfortable bed I have slept in away from home!
Oude Wellington Restaurant just around the corner is well worth a visit for high quality hearty cuisine. Bosman Vineyard nearby is the world's number one producer of ethical wines and is also one of the most personal wine tasting experiences I have enjoyed in this part of the world (advanced booking essential). Both come highly recommended!
Would I stay again. Most definitely!
