This is a truly magical little hotel with wonderful views of the distant mountains and surrounding vineyards. With only 11 rooms it is intimate and friendly and the staff are exceptional. The guest house has been designed by the owner Siobhan and has quite rightly featured in fashion shoots as it is beautiful. There is a small Infinity swimming pool, a sauna and treatment room and an honesty bar. We stayed here for a week in January the weather was fabulous, we went on some wonderful walks and there are some great Vineyards nearby for lunch. Close to Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl the location is perfect. We had a room with probably the best view which is number 7 in the original farmhouse. It's a corner room with windows on two sides overlooking the valley and distant mountains. However in high Summer it is really hot and we didn't sleep brilliantly during our stay as we couldn't get the temperature right. It also doesn't have blackout curtains and faces east. So when the weather is hot it is probably worth paying a little extra for the modern pool rooms which are much larger and more shaded. The biggest surprise for us was the food which was exceptional. We didn't realise that they were serving dinner when we booked but it was a lifesaver during the covid curfew. Adrian the chef did a marvelous job devising a four-course menu that changed every night. The food looked beautiful, tasted delicious and was light and inventive. We look forward to staying here again on our next visit.

We stayed there only for one night, but immediately knew that we wanted to be back. The property looks exactly like the pictures, the views are breathtaking, staff is super nice. We had the best time there. The sauna and the pool has amazing views! The gardens are gorgeous. Absolutely wonderful place!

a perfect ending to a perfect trip - this lodge is the perfect size. enough space to give privacy and enough space to enjoy the company of other guest if you wish. rooms were spot on. the design element was most impressive and I would love to bring some of it into my own home. Lovely breakfast daily with your staples and a few surprises as well. If we are ever lucky enough to travel back to south africa I have not doubt we will stay here again.
