Pleasant but could be better

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Nov 2014
Stayed for 2 nights recently and although pleasant there were several things which could have been better and improved our stay. The old cottages are within the grounds of the winery and we thought that as a marketing tactic the owners would be keen to attract us in to the cellar door for tasting and maybe purchase a few bottles. but it was not even mentioned. Perhaps a bottle of wine in the room would have been an inducement.(most wineries do this)
Upon arrival when we were shown into our cottage the lady host said to ignore the black mark on the carpet, as we need to get the carpet cleaned. Was not an issue for us but odd !!
Positives are the location, the bed was comfortable and the Spa was good.
On the negative side a bed side table lamp would be great as would an armchair/sofa to sit in rather than a Cafe style wicker chair with a thin cushion - this aspect was uncomfortable to say the least.Also one of the shower tap heads fell off each time we used it and the Toilet seat was broken.
The cottage we stayed in just needed some TLC and a bit more thought put in to its comfort levels.

Some friends stayed in the same cottage shortly after us and they were similarly unimpressed

Firstly the accomodation:
We stayed in the cottages (number 1- the bigger one) for 2 nights.
The cottages are well maintained and include a lounge room, bed room and big bathroom with huge spa bath. Note: no kitchen, but all cutlery and crockery provided for the continental breakfast.
Cottage had new kettle and toaster and continental breakfast offered for 2 mornings included a loaf of local bread, 3 packets of musuli, 4 packets of cornflakes, many beerenburg jams, a litre of orange juice, a litre of milk, tea and coffee with a plunger.
The cottage structure is old (obviously, as part of the original buildings) but well maintained, no cracks etc, but I enjoyed the old light switches and plugs. Tv provided also with small fridge. Nice outdoor seating area, private off street seperate car park. Only complaint was the carpet could have used a steam clean.
There was no cooked breakfast upgrade offered of sparking wine as mentioned in previous posts (years ago).
If you are looking for a quaint place to go with your partner, nestled in the vineyard with real character I highly recommend it.
Also there was a slight key complication at check-in however the staff were excellent and very friendly and solved it while we tried their wines, and they offered tastes of exclusive wines while we waited.


The cellar door:
Staff were very friendly and well prepared for groups and drive-ins. There was a wedding on as we arrived in the small but well kept garden.

Please see my photos they probably say more than words can!

Room tip: cottage 1 is bigger we were told.

This was supposed to be a wonderful and well deserved night away - but ended up a completely sleepless night shared with mice running through the rooms. There was absolutely no one else on the premises to help and no one answered any on the 4 phone numbers left in case of emergency (except for a very late call from the Vineyard manager - and it wasn't his problem anyway) . We have been assured my daughter - who bought the De Groots voucher from London would get a refund --- but still nothing has come forward, so we wait to see if anything will actually eventuate. Also, don't get taken in by the huge sign out front that states "Bed and Breakfast" as there was no breakfast - they apologised, saying we should have been told, but we weren't, until we arrived.

Room tip: The big gaps under the doors and weeds in the garden should have been a sign of things to come!

We called in here without a reservation and we are so glad we did. We had cottage 1, which had a lounge, bedroom and bathroom with a spa. The cottage was clean and inviting and the staff were friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast is complimentary but there is also a cooked breakfast option for $10. The restaurant is open for lunches.
The Kaesler winery at the rear is superb. Lauren was a fabulous host at the winery with lots of knowledge about the local area.
We had to travel back here a couple of days later to collect the pillow I left behind! Michael is the host of the restaurant and cottages and couldn't have been more helpful!.
Would highly recommend a night or two here as you explore the many wineries close by.
Make sure you meet Snuggles too! :-)

The rooms are very quaint and peaceful and the surroundings are stunning. We visited when the vines were covered in green leaves and the place looked beautiful. They provide a bottle of sparkling wine on arrival with some fruit and these were nice. The bathrooms are large and kept warm with ceiling heaters.
This is more like a B&B than cottages because the rooms are all side by side and there is a shared outdoor patio area. They are not "stand alone" cottages. The best room is the suite which is large and has a small lounge area.
Breakfast is included and it is held in a very quaint German style dinning room. It is a very basic breakfast but the jams are well worth sampling.
Overall this is a nice weekend get away for friends and those looking for a bit of romance. We loved the staff at the cellar door of the Kaesler Vineyard they were helpful and cheerful and the wines were good too!

Room tip: Pay the extra and book the suite... size does matter
