“Lovely venue”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

will be back in the summer when the garden is in full bloom. swimming pool and spa was out of action, I don't expect that I will be able to afford the tariff in the summer season. It would not suit everyone's taste but we appreciated the history of the place and the relative isolation.

Room Tip: Rooms tiny but adequate, quaint and spotless.

Went for a birthday lunch, and was greeted by friendly staff Zach & Danni who went out of their way to make us feel welcome as well as accommodating us with a pram. The food was of quality the surroundings outstanding & atmosphere first class. I found out its under new management & will definitely be back again for more yummy meals.
Thanks once again to the staff at Morning Star.
P.s Will be telling all our friends

I was told the rooms were small but didn't imagine so small that could hardly walk around the bed and that also mean't tripping over bag as nowhere else to put it. No air conditioning, no tv, no fridge. It was claustrophobia. Thank goodness for the tiny window. It was very expensive and definitely not worth even half. The deluxe room was only slightly bigger and more expensive again! This was no better than a backpackers. To shower had to close the bathroom door. Eventually found the hairdryer, in the wardrobe. Only stayed there as attended a wedding and thought it would be convenient as didn't want to drive. Breakfast was included but only between 9 and 10 we had to leave at 8am!! Think again and stay just a bit down the road in comfort.

We each enjoyed a nice three courses and had a great experience. The service was wonderful and the staff made it special for us. It won't knock your socks off but you won't be left disappointed. A nice night out. Recommend for couples and friends.

No reception service, no tv reception, could hear plates being stacked through the wall, dirty towel, noise from cool room below room, communal spa cold-not working and dirty. Maybe a review of price is needed!
Would not recommend! It's the unfunny version of Fawlty Towers!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In early 2002 the original dormitory rooms of the historical "Morning Star Boys' Home" were modified to create a 20 room Guest House. Originally there were 30 dormitory rooms with communal facilities; these were altered by converting every second room into two en suites. Formerly the dormitory rooms housed 4 or 6 boys, and were kept small due to structural requirements. However you don't live in your rooms when visiting Morning Star Estate, there are beautiful garden areas and vineyards around the estate waiting to be explored and enjoyed. Our rooms are modest yet priced fairly. The Guest House consists of 15 Double Rooms (with double bed), 4 Queen Rooms and 1 Queen Spa Suite (with queen bed or twin beds), all have their own en suites. For socialising and relaxation we provide Guest Lounges and various outside areas for enjoying the scenery. ... more   less
