My daughter and myself really enjoyed our stay!! Kim was an absolute star and such a lovely hostess. She organized a nice cheese platter for us to enjoy with our wine. Breakfast was delicious! The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Love the decor! The minibar was very welcome. Uber was quick and enabled us to enjoy the wine tasting and restaurants. We look forward to coming again to enjoy the swimming pool and tennis court. Highly recommend Slaley House!

The location of this is a great jumping off point for many wineries. The furniture was well appointed and was comfortable. The jetted tub in one of our rooms was a nice touch. I love the wilderness around this place. I would absolutely stay here again.

The accommodation was excellent but the service was sadly lacking . We spent a night there & were not able to go out and we were not even offered anything to eat ...like cheese & biscuits or fruit. The breakfast served was good but the room was freezing...it was cold & rainy outside. Do not recommend this place

Hi Trixishap, We are sorry that you felt such disappointment at our venue. If you were unwilling to purchase any of the food items that our Bed and Breakfast had in the minibar, management would have been more than willing to share the dinner that they make with their personal supplies, which are the only non-breakfast items on site, as management will with any guest who forgot that we are only a Bed and Breakfast, cannot access dinner and proceeds to simply ask us if we can help. Beyond that, our facility would have also been happy to show you how to work the heating feature on our air conditioner if, once again, the complaint had been voiced to us at the time, either in person or on either of the after hours numbers we provided. Sadly, however, there is very little that we can do to assist guests who: 1. Fail to ask us to assist with any issues. 2. Voice their happiness with the night they had in the morning when management asks in order to preemptively follow up on any issues. Please just remember that most establishments will happily bend over backward to rectify any issues guests experience while being hosted by that establishment and we hope that, in future, you feel more comfortable to give that venue a chance to fix any issues in person first.

Lovely country house with comfortable, spacious rooms that have everything you need when away from home, including a fully stocked mini bar (with chocolates!). Beautiful garden and pool. Scrumptious breakfast and great hospitality.

Dear Dalene I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for the feedback. I know our mini bar has a way of calling you out of bed and then the little things that are there to indulge with, leads you into temptation. I hope to welcome you back so that we can spoil you again with our hospitality.

The ambiance and service was truely wonderful the room was stunning and clean. Breakfast was good. However they should consider microwaves in the rooms or accessible to guests after 6pm. As they don't provide meals besides breakfast. Also partner a reliable shuttle service to help guests get about when they need it. It was a great stay though!!!!!

Dear Geraldine Thank you for the feedback. I am not sure why you did not make use of the microwave that is provided in the dining room for guest use, or inquired about our shuttle service, as we have 2 dedicated shuttle services for the convenience of our guests. There are even shuttle business cards of one of the companies as you walk into the front door, next to the sanitizing station, as well as on the reception desk. On check in you received am information sheet, that informed you how to use these services. So all I can think, is that you did not read the full information sheet. We even offer wine tours through one of the companies. In any case, I am glad you enjoyed your room and your stay.
