Having stayed here 4 years ago and loved it, we were eager to return. It was however not the same as we remembered it. Our room was clean but the sliding door latches were mostly broken or not functional, the bedside light had no plug adapter so not usable, the brown water dribbled from the bath tap (this was rectified once I brought the issue to management’s attention), there was clearly a water leak in the corner of the ceiling and the room just looked like it needed a bit of maintenance. We could overlook all of it but the way the owners wife treated our waitress over dinner, in front of us, was totally unacceptable. The poor sweet girl was almost in tears. She has opened the door next to us, at our request as there was a large party going on in the small dining area, nobody wearing masks and no fresh air. Without asking or calling the waitress aside she harshly reprimanded her in front of us. When I intervened and said that I had requested the open door, I was ignored as she continued to lambaste the poor girl. It left a very bad taste and we will not be inclined to return.…
Big thank you to Penny and Andy for being excellent hosts. They accomodated single travellers at one table at dinner and made them feel welcome. Travellers are welcome to take an early morning walk with Andy through the vineyards for some very insightful information and history. Very relaxed atmosphere. I would highly recommend Mymering.
The accommodation is very well thought out, with very good fittings. The views were spectacular. Total privacy. The breakfast was standard - the dinner was excellent, however a cup of coffee costs one more money and not included in the set menu. The quality of coffee needs to be revised. The coffee pods in the rooms was of very poor quality.
A lovely accomodation in a peaceful, quiet wineyard. The houses were lovely designed and clean. The landloards were amazing warmhearted persons who made our stay to something special. Not to forget the delicious dinner at a warm fire-place and the morning walk through the wineyards.
Clean, and comfortable bed. Friendly owner and staff. The view from the restaurant made us feel we could sit there every day for weeks, reading or doing something creative, sipping the delightful wines and occasionally going for a walk into the mountains. For exercise…. However as we stayed only one night en route to elsewhere, the only walking we did was joining Andy (the owner) giving us a guided tour of the vineyard in the morning. We thoroughly enjoyed that, as he picked grapes for us to taste, telling us the differences between them, and telling us about the vineyard and its history. The rooms are separate from the reception/restaurant, but only a minute or two’s gentle walk, which was pleasant in the weather whilst we were there. The only downside and reason for just 3 stars (we would give 3.5 but can’t) was that the rooms, or at least the one we stayed in (Lavender) was very tired looking, and felt rather dingy - but given the apparently recent and very well done expansion of the restaurant I guess they will be looking to refresh the rooms - and maybe some have been done as clearly not all reviewers have reported the same.…
beautiful place, friendly staff .both female and male staff members very helpful. enjoyed grapes directly from the vine, took beautiful pictures, The place is ideal for family outings not work purposes.it can be very lonely when alone.
The owners have a responsibility, to be honest to the guest by informing them about snakes, the Unavailability of TV, internal telephones, and network connectivity. to avail ironing boards in rooms. the staff members were friendly.
We were on a short trip from Cape Town, to go and see Seven Weeks Poort (which I had last seen in 1978 - and I have to say it has not changed a lot in the intervening years). We had had a long day driving up from Albertinia and then round the west end of the Klein Swartberge and along the northern side of the mountain range - in all about 100k on a gravel road. It was spectacular - both the poort and the country round the mountains. At the end of the day we arrived at Mymering and found an oasis of calm and verdant nature. We (3 adults) stayed in The Black Poodle Cottage - and met the Black Poodle later at dinner. The cottage was well set up, and would be a good base for a long weekend as it offers self-catering as well as the dining room at the farm. We went for the dinner - which was excellent - washed down with their own wine under the Hillock label. I'd highly recommend it as a base for exploring The Little Karoo, and a great place to return to after a hard day's sightseeing.…
Cycle event, my son was doung a xco at oakrest. We will for sure go back as a family to enjoy the wineyards and beautiful wine estate on a future trip. Penny and her husband is the perfect host and make every guest feel part of there dream..
A wonderful stay yet again in this marvellous place. We love The Mae West suite with its privacy, elegance and wonderful views of the mountains and vines. Andy and Penny are perfect hosts…we had some great conversations and lots of fun during our evenings with food cooked to perfection and beautifully served. We enjoy our early morning walk with Andy, the dogs and other guests tasting all the different grapes they grow and learning about the countryside. It will be always on our list to stay every year on our touring holiday of SA.
