Reviewed 10 July 2013

Stayed there on the last night of our two week South Africa vacation. It was a great ending to the trip. The rooms are spacious, staff is extremely accommodating, the food excellent. The rooms, common areas, etc. definitely reflect the French influence. The short walk to town is pleasant, and there are some excellent restaurants in the area as well as Monneaux in the hotel. Best for adults looking for pleasant and sophisticated surroundings; probably not so great for younger kids. Overall, highly recommended.

We stayed for one night and enjoyed it tremendously. Friendly staff, heated floors in large room, fireplace, the best bed linen...everything you can think of is inside your room. Lovely property close to town. Nice and relaxing evening

This is a lovely property. Our check-in process was a little confusing as it appeared we didn't check in at the primary location. But once sorted out our bags were quickly taken to our room in the main building above the restaurant. It was a lovely corner room - very comfortable and nicely decorated. Only problem was you could hear noise from the restaurant below - chairs scraping and voices dimly. Dinner in the restaurant was lovely and breakfast each morning was terrific. Overall we enjoyed out stay here.

We have stayed here many times in the past and the setting, rooms and services are exellent. However the maintenace needs to be improved since there are issues with broken cupboard handles, broken tiles, loose fittings etc that can create a bad and neglected image. The range of TV channels are also very limited for a 5 star establishment.

Dear reviewer, thank you for the constructive feedback. As we pride ourselves in the upkeep of the hotel, also having just completed the refurbishment all our luxury rooms, we regret if there were items that needed attention - please accept our apology. Please do get in contact with us as we would appreciate the detail. We are however happy to see you enjoyed the stay and thank you for your support

We booked 3 rooms for a weekend just after my 60th birthday. Not 5 star, but our section was 4 star. Definitely overpriced for 4 star. (R12000 for the 3 rooms)
Service, dinner and breakfast - excellent.
For the same price i will most probably go somewhere else next time.
To summarise: 5 out of 10

What an impressive place to stay! Their website cannot possibly convey the charm, style and luxury of this well appointed and amazing country house. The rooms are stunning and comfortable with every amenity available. The food was exceptional and the staff were friendly and efficient. Thank you for the pleasant stay and I wish I could have stayed longer. Hope to return one day soon.

Great villa suite at Country House and Villas. Restaurant was ok - tasting menu paired with wines was very good. Breakfast buffet was great. Fireplace in room was just what was needed on winter evening. Villa room is very large. Free Internet restricted to 200MB. Somewhat overpriced for overall experience compared to other places we have stayed on our trip.

Room Tip: Room 17 has view into courtyard in front and onto another property at back. Not a real mountain view...
