Very picturesque surroundings, lovely and close to Roberts Restaurant, though we did drive the 100m as is was bucketing with rain at the time. The only negative is that whilst the rooms are lovely they open out onto a communal verandah, which would be fabulous if you were staying with a group of people, but not so fabulous if you are looking for some quiet alone time with your partner and people are standing on the verandah just outside your room. Also couldn't get wifi to work in our room, and a full length mirror would have been great, simple to put one on the inside of the wardrobe door. I really liked the wine glasses in the room, especially as this is wine country, actually went and bought myself some for Christmas. We found the signs were not really visible from the road, very low key, keep your eyes peeled.

Disappointed in that it did not match our expectations which we had gained from friends who had stayed previously (Years ago?). Our bed configuration (twin) was not set-up as confirmed. To have the first night drink and canapés in the breakfast room was just not acceptable when the lounge (delightful) was not being used and on querying this arrangement were told it was due to "rules"?
Facilities in the bathroom (limited towel rails or hooks so that towels etc. were stacked at the end of the bath which had an overhead shower?). While our room had a sizeable (dining) table it could not be used there were no suitable chairs.
Wi-Fi only available in the lounge/breakfast room and not our annex room.

I was married at Roberts in November 2013 and all of my close friends and bridal party stayed at the Convent. This is the perfect setting for smaller groups to sit on the decks (where there are many), catch up, have a drink and take it all in. We couldn't have chosen a better location to stay.

Breakfast was always great, service throughout was excellent, however the only downfall is access to food for lunch or dinner. Limited options on site and limited delivery food options locally.

If that is the worst thing then there really isn't anything wrong - just bring some stuff with you.

Truly quiet, discrete and isolated for all the right reasons. Well worth the stay.....

Stayed: November 2013

My husband and I stayed at the lovely, old converted convent for two nights. The staff was helpful in organizing a boutique wine tour and quickly delivered canapés and wine before dinner in the lounge area. The hotel is small and charming but not a upscale experience.

We had difficulty getting any Internet service unless we were in the lounge. Our room was number 3. It was located across from the breakfast room and beneath some very squeaky floorboards located above our room. We heard people's voices and movement in the lounge area and also above our room. The television station list of choices was extremely poor.

Though the drive to the property was lovely and the surrounding area interesting, Peppers Convent needs some TLC (Tender Loving Care) to make this traveler return.

Room Tip: The boutique wine tour with Margaret Wendt was wonderful.

This is a charming, albeit a bit worn at the ears hotel. It used to be a convent, has a wonderful entrance coming down a long driveway with this fabulous old building in sight and it still has many of it's original beautiful features. Yes,the bathrooms might need some touching up but the ambience is quite lovely. Maybe it's leftover from the convent but I felt very peaceful there; esp. in the back garden. You are in wine country, so many wineries without long driving and near other restaurants. The staff was quite gracious and really took care of us. If we went back, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
