This is a 4-star hotel with several pros and cons.
Plus points: The staff are all pleasant, efficient and helpful - especially one of the Managers, Andrew. The location gives super views across the valley to the far hills. The rooms in the Annex are large and the whole establishment is quite quiet. There is a good restaurant with well cooked and presented food and an excellent wine list including some outstanding wines at remarkably low prices from the local Devon Valley Sylvanvale Winery.
Minus points: It's slightly soulless, possibly in part because it caters for tour parties. There are neither fridges nor tissues in the bedrooms. The free wifi is limited to 1 hr and even then it's patchy. [Why do ostensibly high class hotels charge for what is rapidly becoming a universally free provision?]
Overall, it's a very good hotel with plenty to see and do within easy striking distance eg the Stellenbosch vineyard tours or the three local walks of varied lengths for which hotel provides maps - and then charges for the privilege. Sigh! It's things like that that irritate and bring it down from its potentially excellent grading.
