Excellent location, just a block back from Hugenot streets restaurants, pubs and shops etc and Woolworth's food and coffee shop meters away. Rooms nicely decorated, if a little small. We were upgraded to a suite which was lovely and very spacious. Splash out on that if you can. David and Janey were great hosts and dining room staff were lovely and served an excellent breakfast. Earlier breakfast (starts at 8am) would have been helpful as our group sometimes had to leave early to play golf, although David kindly offered to put some breakfast items in the room fridges for us. Only other drawback is that there is no lounge area available in the evenings to gather and relax in. All in all, would stay there again. Thank you.
Fabulous. 4 out of 5

This is such a beautiful and well run town, with an abundance of wine and good food! Would highly recommend this for any visitors seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or just want a romantic weekend away. It is on the pricey side, so be prepared to pay a bit for a meal and drinks. Otherwise have fun!
