Beautiful location - in heart of winelands. 10 minute drive from Stellenbosch and about 35-40 from Franshoek.
High quality accommodation. Huge room and bathroom. There are about 6 or seven plunge pools scattered around the little 'village' of accommodation and a main pool a short distance from the accommodation.
A real sense of peace and tranquility. Great deli to go and buy a picnic and then eat by the lake or somewhere in the grounds.
Good wine tasting. Friendly staff.
Super hotel restaurant. We ate there on our first night and were expecting average hotel food but we thought it was superior.
Cheetah sanctuary to go and visit if you wish.
All in all, excellent and I would definitely recommend this place to stay. It is a large hotel, in large grounds and yet it has a very relaxed and intimate feel about it, without making you feel like you're in a hotel!
