The room was modern and neat but as with previous reviews, did not meet my expectations as to the price paid and pictures on the website. The breakfast was good but not really different to any other establishment and the pool was so crowded that there were no pool loungers or other chairs available (or staff) to rectify the problem...

Was disappointed that according to reception, none of the spacious 1-bedroom apartments have fireplaces, in contrast to photos advertising the 1-bedroom apartments with fireplaces - on the hotel's own website and also on other hotel booking websites. Limited digital TV, but then fast free wifi, so bring a HMDI//VGA cable and connect the large TV to your laptop to watch...

We had a Standard Room, which included breakfast in the rate. Beautiful room appointments, including a fridge. Breakfast were excellent. Service excellent - the staff are well-trained and friendly. Pool area has a stunning valley and mountain view. Ideal situation for exploring the winelands.

The hotel is amazing and the service is great. Strongly recommended. People were very friendly since the beginning. The place is beautiful, the wine taste is very nice. There are some bikes available to visit the vineyard. Very good experience!

Great pool area and friendly staff! The rooms and restaurant are very average so do not get your expectations up too high. It's very well located though if you are just looking for a base to explore from!

Such a tragic offering: the expectation was of a four star experience in the wine lands , only to find it a two star offering looking into walls (but at a four star price). And all the guests had the same take out. The staff are lovely but spend their lives apologizing: no water in the rooms (we were told...

The suite we had was just perfect. It had its own parking place. The lodge was easy to find. Golf courses were close and the food was very excellent. And the view from the pool was amazing. Remember to go to the wine tasting.

“you can clean your bathrooms and bedrooms better. No maintenance was done. Carpet was torn, toilet was held in place with silicone and was lose. Soap decanters were dirty. bedding was damaged and stained. I will not recommend this place. It was definitely not worth the money we paid.”
