We couldn't have asked for more from our host Francois. He couldn't do enough for us and his communication before our arrival was excellent. We also loved the service from the restaurant and the staff are all super friendly and efficient. The surroundings and setting of the accommodation is beautiful.

We had a amazing winter breakaway this past weekend at JHG! Amazing wine and picnics under the trees. The staff is what makes this amazing place even more special! Francois the general manager was warm and engaging from our arrival till our departure, the kitchen staff really made sure that we were spoiled with amazing meals especially the lamb pasta ragu specially and freshly prepared by Chef Josia, it was a flavour explosion! They have an amazing selection of wines to pair with the amazing meal options and cheese and meat picnic platters. We will definitely visit JHG again or even just pop in for a special meal when we are in the area.

We had an amazing time, all the staff were friendly and the food at Just Amy was amazing. Chef went out of his way to make it special. The JHG experience is highly recommended with the most beautiful view.

We stayed for only one night, unfortunately. Francoise welcomed us so nicely and made us feel at home immediately. It is a beautiful place to visit, with great wines and good food to enjoy in the Restaurant. Very tasteful rooms with everything you need. We will definitely be back!
