We were looking for a special treat and thought this might be it. We were disappointed. We paid a daily rate of R1,100-00 per room, but this price does not justify the poor quality. The room was nice and clean and comfortable, but the en suite bathroom was shocking. It wasn't a proper shower - it was a hand-held shower that was propped up on a stand to convert it into a proper shower, but the shower head kept on slipping down so you effectively couldn't have a proper shower. The water pressure was non-existent, and you had to wait at least 10 minutes for hot water! In addition, there were no spare plug points in the bedroom for charging smartphones or tablets or other electronic devices, and the dressing table also didn't have an electric plug nearby which meant it was impossible to use a hair dryer or other hair styling equipment at the dressing table. Overall, it's the little things that gave it away - the information brochure presented on arrival was a badly crumpled, coffee-stained photocopy containing old information; no butter at breakfast (only cheap margarine) and no tea at breakfast (only gross, weak, cheap filter coffee). At R1,100-00 per room per night (and we stayed for 6 nights) I really expected MUCH better. The bar in the photographs is a lie - there is a bar but it is hardly ever manned.

I have only dealt with a Kobus and Luche telephonically from the Paarl Boutique Hotel and through the appalling service received, i never want to go there ever! I paid a deposit on the 1st of March for our trip which will be on the 29 April - 3 May and due to work commitments I have unfortunately had to cancel the trip and have thus requested the deposit to be refunded to me on the 9th of March and since then, Im being referred to this elusive manager Dawie who doesn't even have the decency to email me back or call to let me know if there is a problem with my request. Kobus and Luche on the other hand keep on assuring me that my money will be refunded in full, however, a week later nothing! I was given Kobus`s number but his cell 082 782 7590, rings and goes unanswered. If anyone is need of terrible service and being given the run around, please go to the Paarl Boutique Hotel!

We spent a night in the Garden suite room which was clean & comfortable. Arrive in the bfast room. NO clean tables or even set. All tables dirty & used. Not a staff member insight to help. We took odd utensils left on the dirty tables to create our own "set" table. Eventually we had to walk upstairs into the kitchen to call for help. A lady came to tell us what we can order but she was totally inappropriately dressed to work with food or guests. Eventually the manageress on duty arrived & we kindly commented on the lack of a clean set table & assistance. She told us that other guests ate earlier but no apology for not re-setting one table for us plus it was still one hour before bfast ends. The previous night the owner told us that we cannot miss their very special bfast, it is a must! Well, it was overcooked, dry bacon, oily fried eggs and slices of raw tomato & cucumber. No freshly baked items, just bread from the shop. The view we got from the area where the food was prepared and the ladies.... made me lost my appetite completely. NEVER again --- very very poorly trained staff!!!

The hotel was built by a German many years ago. It was called Berghof ............ The place is under new ownership which seems to struggle to get things right. The rooms are big and comfortable, however the en-suite bathroom is totally outdated! Currently you only watch local TV channels, which is a bummer if you are a business traveler. The towels are so hard that you can use them to massage your skin. Breakfast was up to standard. The check-out procedure was rather lengthy, it took forever to print an invoice and it was suggested to the owner to invest in a new computer system. The price for a standard room was totally over the top. R720 for one night including breakfast. Seems they want to recover their investment in a hurry. Good B&B's in Paarl go for about R200 (+/-) and there is nothing special to the hotel that would justify this price.

Not a hotel. Just a dodgy room. It's an ugly building that smells of smoke and the furniture is terrible and lights don't work and bathroom was an 80s pink disaster and I could go on but it's not worth it
