We stayed here as part of our honeymoon in June 2009 while exploring the winelands area.
Good quality and well run boutique property. Not sure whether to describe it as a hotel or a guest house. It is just a big house that all the guests share – but the owners don’t live there, so it doesn’t have that “guest in someone’s home” feeling (that we find a bit awkward). However, it doesn’t have a restaurant / room service etc which is why it’s not really a hotel in my eyes.
Good room with its own private patio and pool (not much use in June though). Nicely decorated and furnished, but is looking a little tired in areas. It’s a very old building though, so most of this can be written off as “adding character”.
Excellent location for exploring the winelands and within walking distance of lots of good shops and restaurants. Extremely helpful staff for suggesting local wineries and recommending restaurants.
Lots of pictures with this review, so please take a look!
