We stayed for two nights in this charming Guest House, the rooms of which are scattered over a number of different buildings. Our room in the main building was quite small, but well appointed with everything you may require. The main dining room was fitted out with antique furniture as was our own room. The food, both breakfast and evening...

The deck area with its furniture and grass has an amazing view for sundown drinks. The dining area in the cellar is very quaint and unique. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. The vegetarian pasta is outstanding!

Professional, friendly staff - no request too much for them to deal with. A problem with the water supply caused some discomfort for guests, but Jowine and Riëtte did all they could to handle the situation effectively. Breakfasts were excellent. Barbecue and formal dinner menu catered by Chef Rudi were expensive, but outstanding in taste and especially presentation. Available winelist...

Unfortunately the estate was disappointing. The room was not what we expected or what was highlighted in the website. We ordered a king suite and altough the room we had was nice it was not a suite just a typical hotel double room. The grounds are very nice and dinner was very good indeed but not rather pricey at R400...

The welcome was lovely, the room was well equipped and very well maintained. all of the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food fro breakfast and dinner was first class and the opportunity to meet other guests over a sundowner on the deck was a nice touch.

I did think of 4 stars, but now a month since we were there February 15 and 16, I recall these two days of our ten in the Cape with great fondness. I see other reviews use words like elegant, exquisite, royal. Well it's not that. But it is charming and welcoming. The estate is very pretty Cape Dutch, set...
