We hired a car from Cape Town to drive up into the mountain area to the North East and visit the wine growing area around Tulbagh. The town lies in a bowl surrounded by the mountains and made a good base from which to visit the Cape Winelands. The hotel itself was small giving a feeling of exclusiveness, plus the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. The room was very nicely decorated with personal touches as well all the usual needs provided. We ate in the hotel restaurant and chose to sit out on the patio under a tree decked with small lights, which was very romantic. I chose the Eland steak which was beautifully cooked and my wife had the ostrich which she also enjoyed. I honestly can think of no negatives from our stay and hope that we can one day return.
