No TV spoiled my weekend. Was planning on spending the predicted cold morning in bed watching the Springboks in New Zealand. Not to be. The owner switches off the TV when he leaves (June apparently). So thumbs down for false advertising. Had to leave early to find place in town to watch rugby.
Restaurant food and service excellent as usual, even though we were the only customers

Dear guest
my sincere apologies. I am fully guilty of that. I had downgraded the DSTV's premium channel during winter. The rooms now have Top-TV with own decoders and in the lounge an additional DSTV on a big-screen TV. I hope the rugby fans will accept my apologies and return. I will supply a six-pack of Castle to support the effort.

on arrival the room smelt closed up-it should of been aired out first (though there was a last minute change of room, even though I had advised we were friends and not a couple). We also felt there was no clear indication of how things worked i.e. when would we get our complimentary wine, how the champagne tasting would work (we don't drink brandy and were offered a champagne tasting) then there was only 1 type of champagne which came from our rooms fridge... There was no wine price list. Our hosts were very friendly and hospitable however.

Dear guests
Thank you for your review and the honest statement. One gets routined with checking in guests and sometimes forgets that each person needs to know all what is available and on offer. Thank you for reminding us. We will make an effort to explain better in future. Our wines are all but sold out, which it should before next years harvest. Being a small producer we only have one MCC and three potstill brandies. Your stay was a bit derailed by last minute room change, which was therefore not freshened up and a limited choice of complimentary tasting choices. Can we make it up to you by inviting you to a more extensive wine tasting with wines of our area? Please let us know well in advance when you are coming.

It was indeed a very pleasant stay at Olde Wellington. Tried their pot still brandy - Fabulous!!! Great to see the heritage still in tact. Wish we had more time to explore. The hostess and children were charming.

The estate was so nice and quiet,and peaceful,the fact that it was a real winter weekend seemed not to be an issue,this was helped along by a wood fire in our room,which was lovely.We so enjoyed the horses just outside the door,who always greeted us at the fence.The staff were friendly and helpful.

A charming combination of past and present in a perfect setting with direct contact to a hands-on owner. Clean, good food, excellent wine and brandy making on site and ample hiking and cycling opportunity.
