We stayed here for two nights and from the moment we arrived we had a lovely sense of welcome and warmth. The guest house is beautiful, lovely decor, beautiful garden and court yard where we enjoyed a gorgeous breakfast. We didn't get to meet Kathie but she very kindly took the bother to contact us once home because we had left something behind, which we thought was lovely. Dawn was amazing, really helpful, arranging a guide called David to take us on a wine tour. We had to leave the hotel early in the morning and Dawn herself made a packed lunch for us to take with us as we didn't have time for breakfast. The vicinity of hotel is really good, just around the corner from the main street and restaurants (go to Reubins for a fantastic steak!!). Thank you so much for a wonderful stay - hope we get a chance to return!
