A great experience, classic, relaxed, very enjoyable.
Good rooms and good room service, most comfortable and very relaxing.
A fantastic stoep, said to be the longest in South Africa and a really traditional hotel, said to be the best colonial example south of the Equator.
Very good restaurant, lovely, shaded and semi open. Great staff, very relaxed.
Drinks and cocktails on the stoep highly recommended.

Stayed: February 2017, travelled with friends

Beautiful hotel with a wonderful ambiance. Great decor, modernized colonial! Sitting on the stoep with black and white tiles in front takes you back to colonial times - and the view from the back stoep area overlooks the beautiful wine lands and surrounding mountains. Staff are friendly and the food is great! Big portions - go hungry!

Just an hour out of the city and a scenic drive. Comfy,spacious rooms with a cute little patio and beautiful view. Friendly staff. Had a delicious breakfast there and the hotel is just across the road from a few eateries. Definitely going again

We started off with a Cola Tonic and lemonade which was served in a Brandy glass filled with fruit in the ice cubes. The Waiter was friendly and the service excellent. We later enjoyed afternoon tea on the veranda, served by well trained, attentive Waiters. The afternoon tea was served attractively and when I made the booking, I told them it was a friend's Birthday and the chef sent her a beautifully decorated delight with two Birthday candles on. I must stress that the staff are well trained. A delightful hotel and worth a visit.
