From arrival we were met with kind and a very warm welcome. Our room was available at 10am after a long over night flight. The room was very large airy and bright with dressing room plus an on suite to die for. The room also had a veranda with sitting area over looking the large garden, lake and vineyards total little bit of heaven. We also used the pool with stunning mountain views vineyard and gardens. The ducks on the pond made us feel so close to nature a very beautiful part of the world. Its a one stop shop resturant brilliant with very attentive service and great home cooked food with a South African flair. The bar is alfresco over looking the beautiful mountains and vineyards the sun setting here is breath taking. Skilpadvlei serves their own wine which we sampled a few times... delicious.! You can do a wine tour at Skilpadvkei. Cape Town airport is 30 min away. Stellenbosch is about 10mins away and 30 mins away is Strand a lovely sea side resort long stretch of beach with mountain views and loads of resturants to pick from.

Good place to have decent wine for low prices. The biltong is an experience! Dogs are allowed at the wine tasting area but of course - they have to behave. Not in the restaurant - even on the terrace. Very friendly staff.
