From the moment we arrived util the moment we left, nothing was too much to ask. Glen, the Manager and Audrey, his No.1 Supporter, were an absolute delight. Our welcome was as warm as anyone could expect anywhere. The staff were always friendly and accommodating; the smiles never left anyone's face; and we wanted for nothing. The only thing stopping...

I had stayed here 3 times previously. Was warmly welcomed by Glen / Nicole and team who are the "new" owners. Rooms have been updated and upgraded. Really comfortable with lovely showers. Breakfast delightful and pool remains great. This is the place to stay for touring Somerset West/ Stellenbosch winelands and easy to get to Cape Town and airport. Perfect!!

I booked last minute and when I saw the price did not expect very much, I thought there must be something dodgy ...The location is superb, easy to find, stunning gardens, well secured and each cottage is pretty private. The gardens are lush, with lots of lavender and plenty of space to relax outdoors. My room, 13, was modern, spotlessly...
