Deciding on a weekend get-away, we arrived on a cold and wet Friday. Zonia came to our car, parked in secure parking to warmly greet us. She arranged to take our luggage to our and invited us into the lounge for a hot beverage and scones or if we preferred a glass of liquid pleasure, wines from the region of Stellenbosh. Zonia told us a bit about the place and the surrounding restaurants and we asked that she should recommend one. She called and made a booking, a table closest to the fireplace. So reservations all set, she escorted us to our room (room 8, situated on the top floor with beautiful mountain views, the best room in my opinion by far). Being a cold day, the room was preheated and I immediately felt warm and very relaxed. The bed was nice and toasty with the electric 'blankie' on preheat and a soft bed blanket for added heat could be used but was not needed. Thre room also boasts of a big flat screen TV, complimentary sherry, kettle with coffee and tea and a mini fridge. Accommodation was clean with brilliant white crisp linen and fluffy white towels for use. The The bathromm had ample toiletries and was filled daily and the white toweling bath robes was just an added touch of decadence. Decor, classic and modern and some displays, proudly South African. Great staff, great experience, great accommodation. I recommend Summerwood Guest House if you're looking for an experience to remember. Well done Zonia, Tessa and staff, including the behind the scene staff who were warm and friendly and went the extra mile when breakfast was served. A trip I will remember with five star treatment in a five start establishment. Thank you Summerwood!! Solomon Party
