“OMG a truly relaxing luxurious stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

We stayed at Laurelville with another couple and had such a wonderful relaxing weekend. Mmm where to begin.

Our room was just beautiful with the finest of furnishings and crisp white linen to die for. The bed was extremely comfortable with a choice of pillows. On our bed was a tray with some books and yummy chocolates. The room has tea and coffee facilities with a choice of teas and leaf tea for the tea pot. The room also has a fridge handy for a bottle of wine for a drink in the afternoon on the veranda.

In the bathroom it had heated towel racks with bath robes and slippers, and the thickest softest white towels I have ever seen. In the drawer there was a hairdryer, straightening irons and every sort of bathroom accessory you would need, toothbrush, toothpaste, body wash, moisturiser, shampoo and conditioner and even manicure set all packaged beautifully. I couldn't get over how clean the room and bathroom was.

We sat on the veranda all afternoon and sipped wine and I had pre-ordered a cheese platter which was heaven with the finest of cheese, olives, chorizo etc. The football was on so our men stepped into the parlour and played snooker and pool whilst watching the Eagles play. Sandra had baked a beautiful moist orange cake with fresh cream, the smell of a cake cooking was divine and it was so scrumptious we had to have seconds.

We walked into town for dinner which well wasn't the best at the Imperial Hotel. Their website looks great and it is a lovely "Subi Style" place but the food and the service lacked a lot. I will review that separately.

Breakfast started with a help yourself to a continental style with cereals, muesli and yoghurt rhubarb compote and beautifully prepared fresh fruits and juices. Sandra and Phil serve tea and coffee to your table. We chose to sit on the veranda overlooking the gardens.

A cooked breakfast followed which consisted of perfect poached eggs, bacon, beans, tomato, toast and mushrooms. We sat for hours chatting and enjoying the company and the surroundings. No need for lunch we were full from breakfast.

I recommend this place to everyone wanting a relaxing luxurious rest, The hosts Sandra and Phil were simply perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Marwick Room which had beautiful views of the hills and overlooked farm land.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and on our last day we had to be reminded of our check out time. This was due to the fact that we felt so comfortable at the Laurelville sitting on the verandah whiling away the morning with our cup of coffee and our blankets we forgot that we were not at home. When we arrived Sandra was there to greet us with home made scones, jam and cream all set out lovely in the dining room. My friend and I were doing the balloon ride in Northam so we had a 4am start which did not bother our hosts at all. We also bought along some food of our own and Sandra was kind enough to cook it up for us on the second night of our stay. The bed was super comfortable and had electric blankets, the cooked breakfast was scrumptious (loved the stewed rhubarb with yoghurt), and the house itself is simply stunning. Thank you Sandra and Phil for your superb hospitality.

My friends and I were looking forward to a weekend away but never expected to find such a beautiful place to unwind & just relax. Sandra & Phil are amazing hosts nothing is too much trouble, we felt thoroughly spoilt by their hospitality. The house has been so beautifully decorated everywhere has Sandra's special touch. Thank you so much for such a marvelous experience we really did not want to leave and will definitely be back.

I am already looking forward to my next stay...in fact....I can't wait!!!!

I stayed at Laurelville with 3 girlfriends for the weekend. We had a wonderful time and were made to feel extremely welcome. Sandra and Phil are wonderful hosts, very attentive and looked after us beautifully - the best customer service I have had. Stunning home, beautiful decore and a delicious breakfast. We did not want to leave and we will be back - many thanks.

We have just returned from celebrating a birthday at the Laurelville Manor. We booked out the whole place (8 rooms) and I can honestly say I don't have a single bad word to say about it and nor do our guests. Firstly, Sandra and Phil are absolutely wonderful hosts. They were friendly, easy going and accommodating. We played music and danced until 3 am without any drama. we left quiet a mess (dirty glasses, beer bottles etc. nothing broken or damaged, keep in mind you still have to be respectful) after all the drinking which was cleaned before we even came to breakfast. Sandra and Phil made us feel so welcome and at home in their beautiful place and they really looked after us so well. You honestly could not ask for more. Thank you! The actual place is absolutely beautiful. All the rooms are gorgeous, spacious, tastefully decorated and Sandra has really thought of everything you might need to make your stay enjoyable. The beds are so comfortable, the linen, pillows and towels are high quality and very clean. There is water and a jug of fresh milk in the room fridge, as well as an assortment of tea choices and coffee. We had a late lunch and the food was delicious, as was the breakfast the next morning. This place is one of those rare gems you don't find very often. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: As it's not a hotel the rooms do very slightly but they are all gorgeous. If you speak to Sandra...
