I was travelling on business to South Africa and my clients booked me into this guest house conveniently located in Constantia on the wine trail. British travellers might make the mistake of missing this in favour of a hotel, but make no mistake this is something on a different level to what we Brits think of as guest house! A beautifully appointed super clean, very quiet room with views of the surrounding mountains which wouldn't be amiss in a copy of House & Garden. Lovely bed linens and Charlotte Rhys soaps, shower gel and shampoo in the huge bath and shower room all helped to make my stay very enjoyable. Not to mention the hearty English breakfast every morning and friendly service from Gerrie the owner. The local pub, a very short walk away is a lively and well priced pub serving good basic food for those that don't want to venture far. Highly recommended, I had a great stay. Can't comment on the swimming pool as it was a South African winter during my stay, but it looked inviting!
