Cape Town Central, South Africa
Reviewed 6 September 2014

Lovely family run farm. Warm and inviting atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. Crisp clean linen and big comfortable beds. Good amenities and clean bathrooms. Fresh farm bread along with delicious breakfast. There is a lot to do in the area and the views are beautiful.

What a beautiful place to stay! The farm and gardens are beautifully maintained and if it hadn't been for the rain we would have done a lot of walking. We had a lovely cottage in the garden which was essentially a self-catering unit but breakfast and dinner are available in the guesthouse dining room - obviously pre-booking is required. We...

The location is great, as are the wines! It is very charming and a relaxing atmosphere. We really enjoyed the room's decor and the views were spectacular. The staff was very nice and the wine tasting was very enjoyable. We had to leave early the bent morning so did not have the breakfast.
