We had high hopes for Rosevears. We were on our honeymoon with the plan of staying for 5 days. This did not happen.
Finding the property was fine - just off the main wine tour road. The view from the floor to ceiling windows was also pretty good, although the main road was right in front of us and was busier than I would have liked.
Entering the room was a disappointment. The website showed it to be modern, but the overall experience was of missing furniture and a tired feeling. The blinds were ripped and were not the blockout kind. This meant my husband and I had to wear sunglasses just to cope with the glare. The overall cleanliness was poor with bugs and spiders around the place. Since we were staying for a week we wanted to unpack our bags. However there was only limited hanging space and no drawers.
There was no telephone and the TV was old (CRT) with very bad reception.
The biggest disappointment though - and what made us leave - was the discovery of an inprint of a certain part of the male anatomy in the floor-to-ceiling windows. Obviously someone enjoyed the view, but not us after discovering this!
The receptionist was helpful in moving us, however the room they moved us to was just as shabby, with dirty dishes in the sink and some suspect stains on the blanket.
Horrible experience. a great disappointment.
