A good hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Excellent large bedroom with some interesting features - particularly the painted ceiling (a la Da Vinci). And a silent air con ! All very well maintained.
First night we ate in the bar. A mediocre salad followed by a very good crème caramel.
For breakfast there was plenty of choice but disappointed with the rubbery omelette.
We were looking forward to dinner in the Makaron restaurant. We had been advised to book a table when we made the Hotel booking back in January, and were also sent a sample menu which looked very good.
I can only describe the meal as dreadful. There was not a single thing which we enjoyed. The waiter did not seem to care that we did not enjoy the meal and nor did the receptionist when we complained during our check out the following morning. Maybe the chef did not turn up for the Friday night we ate there.
I have regretted the fact that we actually paid for this meal ever since.
I have written a separate review of the Makaron.
The Hotel itself is good, in a nice location, but a little out of town so best to have your own transport to access some of the restaurants in Stellenbosch.More
