Four of us stayed at La Roos for 5 nights whilst visiting the area to attend a family wedding.
We received a very warm welcome from Bill and Maddie as soon as we arrived. My wife and I were keen to establish what the house rules were as we hadn't really stayed in a guest house quite like this before. Maddie explained that we were to treat the house like home, relax and enjoy our stay - that is just what we did.
Their home is fantastic - that absolute prefect party house. Amazing design, very interesting musically themed and very classy décor,a perfect relaxing spot for any weather / time of day / mood / drinking occasion. The grounds are beautiful, perfectly manicured and frame stunning sunsets perfectly.
We had two rooms sharing a bathroom which suited us down to the ground. The rooms were real homes from home, very comfortable with everything you could want. These particular rooms may not be suitable for couples who do not know each other, however the set up worked for the four of us.
Breakfasts were excellent and Maddie gave us a different choice very day. She even made us fruit smoothies by request. Corned beef hash was a new one for us and certainly set us up for the day.
Bill and Maddie were just brilliant hosts and couldn't do enough for us. They were great company and genuinely very, very nice people. The fact that Bill seemed to trade with neighbours in the currency of Beer, endeared us no end! His very dry sense of humour really appealed to my brother-in law and myself - ask him about the French!!
They advised us on taxis, winery tours, bike hire, restaurants, places of interest - every one a winner.
We could not recommend La Roos Maison enough and if we are in the area again, we would not bother looking for anywhere else to stay.
Thank you very much Bill and Maddie for a wonderful experience, you deserve huge success in the B&B business.
p.s. Quincy the dog is a star in his own right, he certainly keeps the cat on it's toes! Perhaps he should have been named after Randy Crawford rather than Quincy Jones ;-)
pps swimming pool was rated as average because we didn't use it.
