I decided to stay at the Stables again after a nice experience there in 2006. Its' quiet ambiance is unchanged, however I was a little disappointed with my stay this time around because I had a dinner one evening only to find out I would be charged R290 upon checkout - ridiculous! I tried to point out that for the...

It feels like home to be here and that 's all of my compliment of this guesthouse. It's comfortable to spend overnight, without TV of internet, because of the silent surroundings. I enjoyed the service by the maid, but not by the manager. We recieved a quotation from him of R400 per person for a tour around the vineyards and...

Great stay, lovely room. They also arranged a wine tour for us which was really good, excellent guide and we tasted a lot of lovely wines. It's best to go during the week as the best wine estates are all open, some of them close in the weekend. The great thing about this guesthouse is that you can stay for...

Very enjoyable stay. Because we were travelling with our 1 year old we eat dinner at the lodge twice. Ettore, the manager, is a very passionate cook, he made a finger liking Roman pasta, and a typical SA braai (which was a bit too much meat for our liking). The suite is beautiful decorated and very spacious. To get to...

Lovely relaxing, accommodation. Surroundings of guest house is lovely, only point for consideration is its not within walking distance of town is if you want to have a few drinks a taxi would...

My wife & I stayed at the Stables for almost a week. We contacted Axel directly and he responded each time within hours. We received a free airport transfer (great as our flight came in really late). When we arrived we were given welcome drinks and shown to our room. We booked the Suite as we were on honeymoon. It...
