We stayed here twice in February and March 2013, two weeks apart at the beginning and end of a rented camper holiday - a total of four nights.
An excellent welcome, a very unusual set up, thoroughly recommended, would stay again without hesitation.

This is probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I've stayed in6 star hotels in the UAE, 5 star hotels in the US and the UK and elsewhere. This hotel is so unlike these clinical clones that it's hard to explain. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the staff are fantastic - you couldn't ask for better

Superb service, in a beautiful setting. There is no doubt that this property is outstanding in every aspect. From the warm welcome, the immaculate room and the generous hospitality all our needs and expectations were exceeded.

This is a lovely boutique hotel which has a homely feeling to it. Fireplace and a glass of port to relax after a long day of discovery. Breakfast prepared daily and shared with other guests on a large communal dinning table gives this place its special warmth and hospitality. We would come back again and recommend it to family and friends.

We stayed for 2x nights at The Classic Villa as a couple. Really enjoyed the hospitality of Jan & Peter, who cooked breakfast for us OMG!! The location is top notch - within easy walking distance from the Cathedral and Hagley Park!!! The villa itself is really a piece of history built in the 1800's would you believe it!! We were really impressed with the hallway and the stained glass, not to mention the facilities provided during the stay - what an enjoyable and relaxing stay :) Good value for money.

Room Tip: It is a quiet street so it doesn't matter which room you are in. We stayed in Room 6 and loved it.
