“Everything we expected and so much more”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

My partner and I stayed at the Lodge last month for our anniversary and I have to say it was one of the most memorable stays in any hotel we have ever had. We were greeted at the front doors by the manager Andreas who very professionally handed us over to his receptionist for a tour and then checkin to our room. The entire weekend was full of suprises including a special demonstration on our first night of how to open a bottle of champagne with a sword. The lodge is run like a old world European hotel with fantastic service, amazing food and wonderful wine. Go in winter to appreciate the open fire places. Thankyou Andreas for making this a very memorable 25 year anniversary. We will be back.

Upon arriving at the Lodge, we were struck by the warmth of welcome by our hands on host Andreas. Devoid of pretense and armed with a wealth of long forgotten knowledge and skill of the service industry. Andreas and his team of ultimate professionals supervise attentively and unobtrusively as you congregate round the ever established log fire for afternoon tea with the news papers, pre dinner drinks, or simply a wee snooze before strolling through the vines to do some afternoon tasting down at the winery!

My wife was 33 weeks pregnant and was the perfect weekend before the onslaught of sleep deprivation ahead. We particularly enjoyed parking the car on Saturday and not even seeing it till Monday lunchtime!!

Sensational weekend and look forward to returning soon!!!

Room Tip: Not applicable, leave that attitude at home!!

Andreas began our expereince with such professionalism and he anticipated our every wish. Our room was very spacious and luxurious. There is such attention to detail. The Dining experience at Nine was simply amazing and a "must-do". All staff were very accommodating & friendly, but still professional. We had a fantastic weekend stay.

This is the third time we've stayed at Tower Lodge over the past 7 years. It is now, as it was then, one of our favourite places. It has an air of exclusivity but without pretentiousness. The staff are lovely and helpful, the rooms very well appointed, the facilities are excellent - I love that the outdoor pool is heated. Lots of great (although expensive) eating options at the Lodge and nearby.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a fireplace for winter stays

A 3 day weekend witha marvellous dinner at Robert's Restaurant (wonderful old wooden slab construction) a short stroll (same owners); then a day by the pool (or touring vineyards) followed by Neil Diamond Concert that night (in the Estate across the road). Doesn't get better!
In house service complete and non-intrusive. Rooms individually themed and well presented. Very comfortable and nice little touches.
Experienced and charming manager.
Not cheap but well worth it!
