Packwood Country Estate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2010

My partner chose The Packwood Estate as we were keen to re-visit Kynsna and I wanted to show him Plettenberg Bay and Storm River. The estate suited us as it is roughly the same distance to Plett and Kynsna. As with our visit to Hermanus, nothing could quite have prepared us for the spectacular view once we reached the estate at the end of what they call a good untarred road (I was unphased as it reminded me of the country lanes where I was brought up in Devon). A view which we also enjoyed from our bedroom window. The sunrise room with its four poster bed and two bathrooms was well appointed. Though I may have preferred a television and wi-fi access in the room, in point of fact the TV lounge was wonderfully comfortable (we enjoyed a bottle of the estates's excellent wine while catching up on news at home) and I was able to plug my notebook in at the reception area. We noted on our confirmation form that we could pre-order dinner at the estate but opted instead to drive to Kynsna.

After a good night's sleep we were served an excellent breakfast and on the second day the weather was good enough to enjoy breakfast on the terrace with the stunning views. Sadly we didn't have time to try the pool - next time!

If you want to be in the center of a buzzy town then this place wouldn't suit. If like us you want to have a mix of what the Garden Route has to offer, Packwood should be high up on your list.

Dissapointed that the remote setting of the Packwood is not mentioned in marketing information.On arrival after 15minute drive on unsurfaced,unlit road we were informed we could not book for dinner as we had not given prior notice although we arrived at the earliest available book in time of 2.00pm this meant a 30min drive to the nearest restaurant via the unsurfaced, unlit road. As no alternatives were offered we decided not to stay and moved to another location more central. Tha Packwood has a 4 star rating but the service and location did not seem comparable with other 4 star locations we had stayed in.
