My husband and I spent two blissful nights in The Point Lodge to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We booked to stay in the Turret Room, however Kerry and Anne gave us a complimentary upgrade to the Chardonnay Suite, as they thought it would suit our needs better! A special surprise was an anniversary card and chocolates in our room from Kerry and Anne, which was a lovely gesture. It was a lovely spacious light filled suite, with a full kitchen and ensuite. We loved the bifold door which opened right up to allow an uninterrupted view over the vines to the sea. The bed was comfortable and the linen was 5 star. The location is superb, very quiet and relaxing, with great views.
Kerry and Anne are the most welcoming and generous hosts, inviting us into their home to share coffee and home baking, as well as a complimentary wine tasting. Their food/winemaking knowledge and extensive travel history make them excellent and informative conversationalists, and we enjoyed their company very much. Breakfast was an occaision each morning, with freshly baked bread/croissants, fresh seasonal fruits, homemade jams, freshly squeezed juice and homemade yoghurt to delight our tastebuds. Lovely touch was the fresh flowers in the room, and on the breakfast tray.
We can unreservedly recomment The Point Lodge as a wonderful place to stay, and you will not find nicer or more generous hosts than Kerry and Anne. Thanks for making our stay special.
